Paul & Shark AW14 at Oi Polloi

Paul & Shark AW14 at Oi Polloi

You would be forgiven for thinking that Paul & Shark is exclusively for portly football hooligans from large backward towns who look very much like the Kingpin from the Spider-Man cartoon series. There’s no denying its popularity amongst that rather unfriendly (and otherwise largely unstylish) demographic. But the fact remains that Paul & Shark is a great brand that makes high-quality clothing the right way. […]

Nike Air Huarache Light – size? Exclusive

Nike Air Huarache Light – size? Exclusive

Much as I’ve admired the recent Hurache explosion from afar, I now feel like jumping in with both of my big feet as they’ve gone and made a pair for hikerdelic, hippy head-cases like me. I now no longer fear of looking like mutton dressed as a street lamb because these Huaraches Lights look like the kind of trainers that a […]

Favourite Fives : Graeme Fidler

Favourite Fives : Graeme Fidler

Several is a pretty good name for a brand isn’t it? It’s not just a clever catchword though, it sums up the ethos of the collective behind it, all of whom have a wealth of experience and serious #menswear pedigree. Ex-of Bally and Aquascutum, Graeme Fidler heads up the whole thing as Creative Director, and he’s ably assisted by Patrick (Oi […]

Marcus Reed – adidas City Series: Europe Prints

Not just me that’s getting back excited by adidas. I know ‘cause I see it around me in that ‘virtual universe’ of the internet and social media. Gary Aspden’s SPEZIAL exhibition and collection is quite rightly not just bringing adi back to its North West heartland, but reigniting the fire that for a few gents of a certain age had, […]

Contemporary Menswear (Thames & Hudson)

Contemporary Menswear (Thames & Hudson)

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a book that features as many clued-up mates in one book as Contemporary Menswear, in fact I know I haven’t. From Steven Vogel’s definitive intro on just why we’ve all gone a bit nuts over dead nice clothes lately to Calum Gordon’s pontification on why we’re all suckers for anything with Made in Japan […]

TRiCKETT x Walsh Seoul 88 Trainers

TRiCKETT x Walsh Seoul 88 Trainers

Three. It’s the magic number innit. We know; De La told us so (well Bob Dorough told us first, but he wasn’t a part of our teenage party soundtracks). Three’s the noble number; a rounding off of the trilogy, the number of dimensions that humans can perceive, an old school solid left back. So it seems apt that our East Lancashire […]

Nudie Jeans Co: Perry Leather & Crust  Jacket

Nudie Jeans Co: Perry Leather & Crust Jacket

There’s a weird paradox in the world of black leather jackets in that more often than not those who choose to wear them really shouldn’t and those that don’t really should. I’m taking about you, yes you. So erase all those terrible tanned images of old, fat punks, that dead sexist bloke with the combover down the pub, rubbish faced racist Jeremy […]

Triads: adidas Originals Spezial Lookbook

Earlier this year I was jammy enough to get a bit of an exclusive peak at this soon to be released Spezial collection. So after having been sworn to secrecy it’s nice that the teutonic cat has been finally let out of the luxury bavarian leather/wool mix sports bag and also that Gary Aspden’s take on classic adi leisure-wear is […]

Kurt Cobain: The Last Session

Can you believe it’s twenty years since Kurt Cobain tragically choose to ‘do one’ from this mortal coil? A lot has happened since then but Kurt and Nirvana remain locked firmly in rock’n’roll legendary territory via the unique and haunting body of music left behind and of course the fact that he violently burned out rather than faded away. Kurt Cobain: The Last Session is a timely […]

Peter Storm : 60th Anniversary Reissue

Will you allow me to be cloyingly self-indulgent for a few minutes? I’m going to anyway, plus I’ve always wanted to use the word ‘cloyingly’. This week saw two things. Firstly, the launch of a couple of real, actual things I can point to and say “Me, that” when family members ask me what I do at christenings. And secondly, through […]

Hiller Jacket from 6876 & Hanon

What makes a good jacket a bloody great jacket? Is it the well thought out choice of technical fabric; that not only does the job it’s supposed to (keep you dry and keep you warm) but feels ace and doesn’t make you swelter like a spitroasted pig? Is it in the clear and focused design; which delivers a coat that hangs […]

Red Wing Heritage Special Release – Kangatan

Remember Lenny Henry when he was funny? No honestly he was once. Way back in the seventies he was a regular on a punk rock Saturday morning kid’s show called Tiswas and he used to wear a massive Rasta hat and run round shouting KATANGA! Anyway, this new release from the mighty Red Wing has fuck all to do with […]

Norse Projects at Pavilion Clothing

If any one should be well able to prepare us for the upcoming winter months it’s those Nordic #menswear gods at Norse Projects. With the climate they’re used to in the far, far North and their ingrained Scandinavian style sensibilities, they’re better placed than most to kit us out in gear that not only aides our dashing to the pub through […]
