The Wenlock Jacket by Collective Noun x The Casual Connoisseur

The Wenlock Jacket by Collective Noun x The Casual Connoisseur

The Stockport Supreme lads have done it again and this time they have teamed up with that classy London outfit Collective Noun. I thought about including a load of spiel which deconstructed the nomenclature of both brands before arriving at a really good name for a pair jackets of this standard and exclusivity but this is no time for wordplay. It’s time for #coats. Make […]

Gourmet Autumn/Winter ’14 at Street Casuals

Gourmet Autumn/Winter ’14 at Street Casuals

Gourmet this, gourmet that. All bloody gourmet artisan street food lately, innit? I’m telling you, these days, you get arrested and thrown in jail just for serving a burger on a plate instead of in a basket or on an old piece of slate. The world’s gone gourmet mad; but if you eat too many of those fancy burgers you’re […]

Star Wars Storyboards – The Original Trilogy

Star Wars Storyboards – The Original Trilogy

Now much as we like to think everything we post on here is worth shouting about, this here book is on a whole new level of aceness or should that be spaceness? With the orginial (and best) Star Wars trilogy so deeply ingrained in our cultural psyche it’s kind of  hard to imagine them starting life at the tip of […]

Engineered Garments Fatigue Pants at Oi Polloi

Engineered Garments Fatigue Pants at Oi Polloi

These Engineered Garments kecks look like something Ernest Hemingway would have worn during his war correspondence days and post-war fishing trips, so I think this write-up is as good an opportunity as any to cheaply imitate his wonderfully uncomplicated and direct writing style. Here we go. Mr. Suzuki did a fine job on the trousers. A man should have practical […]

Maricopa : That Day

Maricopa : That Day

I must say I was slightly surprised to discover that behind Maricopa was a man only 24 years young – from hearing his first release on Tusk records back in 2012 it seemed to me that this high level of production was from someone way beyond those years. Further strong releases have followed on prevalent labels such as Back to […]

Burtonwode Loungewear

Burtonwode Loungewear

We interrupt this brilliant website to bring you some very important lounging information. You need to immediately stop wearing yesterday’s undies with that manky t-shirt covered in draw burns/baby sick/tarka dal and get with the Burtonwode programme. Finally there is an answer to our ‘How can I wear pyjamas without looking like a bit of a stiff?‘ prayers. Not content […]

Herschel Bags and Stuff

Herschel Bags and Stuff

It might currently be the height of the summer holidays but The Great Divide have got all your back to school/uni/I just really want a new bag bases covered with their latest drop from Herschel. Having been around since 2009, you probably know enough about Herschel that I don’t need to bore you with a brand history and what-not. Instead, I’ll just share […]

A.P.C. Candles at Liquor Store

A.P.C. Candles at Liquor Store

If you happen to follow me on twitter, you’ll be fully aware of my two month long pursuit to sell enough stuff to buy a washing machine for my new house. It’s a metaphor. We have a washing machine but She is managing to spend a fortune on ‘a few bits’ (such as; cushions, throws, cutlery and T.V. licenses) and smuggling […]

Garbstore AW14

Do you ever drift off for a moment or two and dream about really making it big or winning the lottery and what you’d actually do with yourself? In terms of changing my life I wouldn’t go as far as Frank Maloney but given half the chance I’d whisk my family off to the walled town of Lucca  in Tuscany whereupon I’d […]

Ideal for keeping the sun off your thinning bonce, and capable of providing similar relief from impromptu showers, it’s one of those functional things that everyone needs. Yes, even me with my large head. Newfangle are from Portugal, which […]

Infinities: Saucony Originals ‘Cavity Pack’

“OK, nice looking trainers but why the Helen of troy are they called the cavity pack?!” I hear you cry out in the dead of night, frightening your missus and making next door’s cat fall off the fence in the process. Well this duo of trainers have nothing to do with Dutch customs officers and more of a ying-yang dental theme […]

TIKI POP (Taschen)

Aloha! Did you watch Shed of the Year the other day? Did you see the shed done up all Hawaiian surfer style? Superb wasn’t it? Inspired by this Polynesian pleasure palace and having recently read about Gonzo’s high jinks in Hawaii I’m now prime for some pacific pop art in my life. Much as I’d like to check out the current Tiki […]

adidas Originals Micropacer

  I can vividly remember when Adidas ‘dropped’ the Micropacer the first time round. Someone had a magazine with an advert for them in it and it was shown round the school playground more than a copy of Look-In magazine that had those pictures of Jackie Wright from Grange Hill in it. Originally released in 1984 to coincide with the […]

CHAPMAN BAGS Made In England

In my expert humble opinion unlike jeans, jackets or shoes when it comes to owning bags you can actually have too many. I mean any decent bag should last you at least half a lifetime so you should put at least a bit of thought into what you’ll be carrying your belongings around in for the foreseeable future shouldn’t you? Which brings us […]

Limited Edition New Balance 996

With all the classic 80s films we grew up obsessing over getting remade, it can surely only be a matter of time before the Back to the Future franchise gets reprised or revisited. It’d be bad, but in the weird channels of my mind, I’ve already thought deeply about it. With Doc having met his soulmate in Clara and had […]

Russell Athletic Premium Fall 2014

It’s always a special moment when your first-born starts school isn’t it? And boy how the tears flowed as I looked at my little angel all grown up and then noticed that the label of her brand new school jumper had an unmistakably bold Russell Athletic logo on it. Yes not only is my beautiful daughter about to embark on her […]
