Jon K & Kelvin Brown : Eyes Down Live PT 2

Fuck genre’s. Yeah, fuck em’. We’re down like that. Eyes Down; a Manchester institution returned this month after a hiatus of around 10 years and we’ve managed to secure just over 2 hours of this savoir-faire. Jon K and Kelvin Brown make up the selectors, mashing many styles and tempos within the mix – you even got an MC (Mr […]

Edwin & The Content Store, announce the launch of Content & Co.

Forget about brands & shops doing clothing/footwear collabs, 2014 is all about bricks and mortar. This week Edwin and The Content Store launch Content & Co. in Exmouth Market which will stock the broadest range of Edwin clothing outside of their existing stand-alone store in Shoreditch. With a more directional approach to menswear than Content, the new store will also stock […]

Fjallraven AW14 at Not Addicted

Fjallraven AW14 at Not Addicted

When the nauses of the internet unite and throw about phrases like ‘wardrobe staple’, ‘shirting’ and ‘bibflange’ it’s a massive turn off, even if I made one of those up. But when looking at Fjallraven this season, and indeed every season it’s hard to find a phrase that sums it up better. I’m going to try though. Well priced, well […]

JD King of Trainers AW14

JD King of Trainers AW14

It’s that time of year when high street heavyweights JD remind us all just why it is that they’re the ruling monarch in this country when it comes to cutting edge footwear, having covered pretty much every trainer tribes needs from Johnhead to geriatrics alike.  Topping the regal crop this season are adidas Zx750, Vans Winston, Puma Suedes, Nike Air […]

Gloverall Monty Duffle Coat at Oi Polloi

Gloverall Monty Duffle Coat at Oi Polloi

Simon & Garfunkel once sang “The autumn winds blow chilly and cold,” and they were right – they do. However, there are ways to prevent such conditions from being a problem, and one of them is equipping yourself with a well-made coat that is composed mainly of wool. Gloverall have been making such coats right here in Merrie Olde England since 1951. Stuff […]

Training Days (Thames & Hudson)

Training Days (Thames & Hudson)

Once upon a time their were twelve cool kids living in a dirty, dangerous place called New York City. But one day Bil Rock, Breezer, Daze, Jon One, Kel, KR, Lady Pink, Sak, Sharp, Skeme, Spin and Team decided to make that dirty, dangerous city different from all the other crazy cities around the big wide world. And so they each got […]

Favourite Fives: Denise Johnson

Favourite Fives: Denise Johnson

Hold the front page, we’ve somehow managed to convince another woman to do a favourite five for us! Which now brings the female quota up to the staggering amount of two. Oh well, quality not quantity right? Speaking of which stepping up to the plate this time we have the charismatic Rock ‘n ‘Roll diva Denise Johnson who has provided […]

M-68 Black Project Sweatshirt

M-68 Black Project Sweatshirt

When is a sweatshirt not just a sweatshirt? Nope, it’s not a trick question nor am I about to adopt a faux-sexy voice and go into an M&S style advert telling you how this sweat will improve your middle class credentials. We make no bones here at Proper about the fact that some brands are better than others. So when […]

LOVE HATS

LOVE HATS

Loves the game but can’t stand what it has become. Probably behaved intolerably in his own right but now cringes at the behaviour of today’s overly excitable #youth. He likes what he knows and he knows what he likes. The antithesis to to the more ubiquitous Weir, a McMurphy is everything you stand for. You. Yes, you. You; in your understated […]

Wood Wood at Liquor Store

Wood Wood at Liquor Store

Army and Navy. Varsity. Tapered seams. Heroin. It’s the Wood Wood autumn winter selection at Liquor Store. With a theme actually centred around heroes, from this opening description you’d be forgiven for thinking it was based on the life and works of Hunter S. Thompson. Which is a nice idea if not strictly true. Regardless, it seems that autumn has arrived […]

Engineered Garments Work Shirt at Peggs & son

Dead men might not wear plaid, but dead stylish ones do. (That’s the part where you go, “Ah, I see what he did there – that Steve Martin thingy; very clever…”) I normally go off on a film-related tangent in these write-ups, so I’ll jump straight into it: this shirt looks like something one of the guys in The Deer Hunter would have worn […]

Saucony Originals ‘Running Man’ Pack

This is the second post in which I’ve referenced Arnold Schwarzenegger of late. But when Saucony decided to release a selection of sneakers called the ‘Running Man’ pack, they made it very hard for me not to connect the dots. I really like Saucony. In this revival of runners, the famous names are blazing a trail and attracting the attention […]

New AXS Folk Technology at Oi Polloi

Back with a bang, and layered up ready for that pinnacle of seasons – Autumn; the ‘Knowledgable Knights of The Northern Quarter’ Oi Polloi have got some new stock of one of our ‘Radar’ brands (don’t know what that means but it sounds good, hey) AXS Folk Technology. Following the same blueprint they used for Spring/Summer – the Acid-Rambler-Goes-Casual look […]

MKI Miyuki-Zoku Store

Leeds, Yorkshire. The land of flat caps, padlocked wallets and pints of bitter. Not a place normally associated with clothing with such a clean and contemporary look and links to an Ive League influenced Japanese youth culture. Part streetwear drug pusher turned rapper, part guest list only exclusive roof top bar attending music producer (although they’re usually the same thing […]

Nudie Jeans Co: Stone Mason Replica

Though ‘Organic Stone Mason Replica’ may sound like a dodgy prog-rock album title it’s actually a super limited edition pair of distressed (which is putting it mildly) Nudie Grim Tim jeans. Inspired by a stone mason who wore his Nudies for nine months of chisel related work and play, the Swedish denim boffins at Nudie decided they looked so fucking […]

adidas Hamburg at Infinities

Gum sole, suede, city series. Timeless isn’t it? It must be, because it’s a formula that worked back in the day (TM) and evidently, it works now, because Infinities have got them in. And we’re writing about them. The etymology of the city series isn’t something we need to go into. The fact you’re reading this probably means you know […]
