Lyon 2011 Arpenteur was formed by Marc Asseily & Laurent Bourven, Immediately striking a unique aesthetic within the menswear arena.
After a visit by the brand to the 6876 studio we have kept in contact over the years always showing a mutual respect and understanding until last year when we agreed to collaborate on some unique products.
“Weekend” is about violence, hatred, the end of ideology and the approaching cataclysm that will destroy civilization. It is also about the problem of how to make a movie about this. Movies about The Bomb are almost never effective; the subject is too large. So Godard abandons any attempt to show us “real” war or destruction. Instead, he shows us attitudes: the casual indifference to suffering that saturates our society.
On the 5th May in collaboration with the Rebel Reel Cine Club we will be screening this film at the Archway Tavern London, tickets will include a complimentary Another Magazine and Tote bag. The evening will feature music & also slideshows.
A young historian and educator enthusiastic about music and fashion. Coming from a background of subculture. I’m keen on exploring the connections between the different dimensions of the past and present subcultural reality, from the inside and from the outside. Captured in a number of articles for fanzines and magazines, as well as a paper for the prestigious Culture & History Digital Journal. I collect records of many sorts but I have special weakness for Jamaican sounds from the 60’s and 70’s.
“I shall fear no evil” is a mixtape for 6876. A fine selection of timeless early reggae, rocksteady and ska classics. Mixed and recorded in mono at home (E8) during isolation with strictly vinyl from my personal collection.

Shaun Galbraith aka Rumshack Steve, booker and resident to one of Glasgow’s roughest monthly parties as well as the manager of Glasgow’s number one Caribbean style dancehall and venue.
Focusing on reggae, dub and dancehall music as well as the influence of dub producers and techniques on other forms of music, these nights have seen guests such as General Echo Soundsystem, Dubplate Pearl, Bokeh Versions, Sisters of Reggae and Jagger (Supreme) rock the dancefloor.
This 1 hour mix draws from the influence of these parties and the imagined relationship between them and the sixeightsevensix range.
Art Director, Scot , Six Eight Seven Six collaborator & a man that knows his clothes (Especially Alden shoes)
