Umbrella Magazine – Issue 11

Umbrella Magazine – Issue 11

As we’ve sold out of our own latest issue, we can now safely recommend another sterling printed publication for your reading pleasure i.e. Umbrella magazine. Who for their eleventh issue have decided to jump out of the internet and into lap with real life pages and everything. Sure you can still read it online as with all their previous issues but […]

Introducing… The Fourness

Introducing… The Fourness

Kazuki Kuraishi is perhaps most well known for his impressive creations for the likes of Bape, adidas 84-Lab, Levi’s & Neighbourhood, though next year he is stepping out with his first first solo project The Fourness for SS15. True to form it’s an incredibly wearable collection (if you ignore the titfers) that appears to share an Engineered Garments type approach to detailing […]

Wigwam Cypress at Oi Polloi

Wigwam Cypress at Oi Polloi

When John Candy coolly said “Very big in Sheboygan” to Catherine O’Hara in the 1990 psychological thriller Home Alone, he was not talking about Wigwam Cypress socks. But he quite easily could have been. All of Wigwam’s products are are knitted in that small Wisconsin city, which sits on the western shore of Lake Michigan. If you are a regular reader of […]

Real McCoy’s x Bench & Loom – Terry Malloy Waterfront Jacket

Real McCoy’s x Bench & Loom – Terry Malloy Waterfront Jacket

Though On the Waterfront may have won eight Oscars after it’s release back in 1954, weirdly it didn’t pick up any prizes for THE COOLEST FUCKING JACKET THAT’S EVER BEEN WORN NOW OR AT ANY TIME OVER AT LEAST THE NEXT SIXTY YEARS. Strange eh? This classic film was based on true events and featured many real-life dock workers who all […]

Ardour Brand – Melton Wool CurveAll Jacket

Ardour Brand – Melton Wool CurveAll Jacket

It’s the season for wool; on that we’re agreed (fa,la-la-la-la, la,la,la,la or summat). Ok, you might have to cover the wool with a good bit of technical fabric, if you’re to stay dry on maneuvers, but colder days defo call for wool. So it just happens to be a bloody good thing that Ardour Brand have gone all woolen workwear with […]

Stussy collaborates with Baracuta

Stussy collaborates with Baracuta

  In terms of seasonal comparisons this is one of the best hookups since Santa got together with that ruby nosed reindeer back in the day. Yes the Stussy cats have been down to the Baracuta factory (more than likely on skateboards or BMX) and have exited the premises holding aloft a beautiful G9 jacket and matching bucket hat both of which […]

Champion SS15

Champion SS15

Just before we all start seriously over-indulging and making merry whilst leathered on sherry, can I suggest that you don’t put too much Chrimbo timber on this year? Because just around the corner in 2015 comes the arrival of an embarrassment of reverse weave riches from those sporty legends of loungin wear Champion.  As we all know being reverse weave means zero slack is […]

Newfangle Aguda Bucket Hats in Teflon

Newfangle Aguda Bucket Hats in Teflon

Remember those Tefal ads ages ago? For some reason I’ve yet to fathom, they decided to advertise non-stick frying pans using men with massive heads. Very strange days. And yet, finally it has taken the innovative Iberians from Newfangle to bring some sense to proceedings with their own ‘titfer’ which uses the same teflon technology Tefal did. Naturally, frying an egg […]

DOOM x Clarks Originals Limited Edition Wallabee

Ding, ding, Round Two. M(other’s) F(avourite) DOOM (Iconic US Hippity Hoppity artist) is back together with Clarks Originals for another highly limited and anticipated release. Earlier in the year we previewed the DOOM Wallabee shoe, which pretty much flew out of stores thanks to the Hypsters and the fact they were a heck of a strong looking shoe. This time sees […]

FOTT x The North Face

One of the highlights of the adidas Spezial Manchester launch last month (apart from lots of nice sports shoes) was meeting up with Kirill from Moscow shop Fott. Putting me to shame with his grasp of English, we spoke for ages about lots of things. One of the things we talked about was the latest issue of their self-published FOTTPAPER […]

JD Sports Quick-Kick

Check this out art/trainer fans, JD have commissioned a speed painter to create an NB 574 from scratch and recorded the resulting magic in this here mind-blowing time lapse video. It’s an incredibly impressive display of human handiwork and dead good technology that has got me thinking that maybe there is a God after all and he’s bang into his New Balance as […]

Winter Accessories at Pavilion Clothing

Read a ‘style’ article over the weekend in one of the supplements. It wanted to draw attention to a new ‘tribe’ of male dresser: the Lumbersexual. I shit you not. Really. Best of all the London centric press writing this dirge wanted you to believe that this ‘Look’ was first cultivated on the hip and edgy sidestreets of East London. […]
