R.Newbold x Central Station Madchester Collection

R.Newbold x Central Station Madchester Collection

Despite their English roots, R.Newbold remain distant to most British clothes bores like me. They like to throw the odd tease via collabs with UK retailers like Goodhood or going back a bit further Oi Polloi, but eBay seems to be the last remaining unreliable, infrequent source of Newbold these days. As a result, their latest inspiration has surprisingly gone under […]

Stussy SS15 Popover Jacket

Stussy SS15 Popover Jacket

The whole Stussy Spring 2015 collection is pretty smart, you know. But I keep looking at this Popover and thinking “That’s all me, that”. I might be in the autumn of my youth but as long as you’re alright with it, I’m still going to dress like I’m in my 20s. The red, white and blue version is my fave. […]

LVC Presents ‘Bowl-O-Rama’

LVC Presents ‘Bowl-O-Rama’

For SS15 the ever impressive Levi’s Vintage Clothing have done a photo-shoot on a level of style and detail that Martin Scorsese would be proud to put his name to. In fact now I’ve said it that’s exactly what LVC remind me of, they’re the ‘Marty of menswear’ aren’t they? Both guiding lights when it comes to bringing classic stories back to […]

Sneakers The Trump Card Game

Sneakers The Trump Card Game

How many arguments have we all had over trainers? “Mine are well better than yours“, “you bought those in Wyndsors you bad Ted“, “naaah you can only get these off an old man in Tokyo who will only let you in his shop if you know the special handshake” and of course the old classic “they’re snides them“. Well finally we […]

Gloverall S/S ’15

Gloverall S/S ’15

Gloverall?  Yeah, we know.  Great heritage brand from Britain who still show that traditional woollen duffle coats made for WW II mariners can be relevant today in these highfaluting fast fashion times. All well and good for crisp, cold, halcyon winter days, walking hand in hand with your loved ones through the park as the snow flutters down; but a real bugger as […]

Favourite Fives : Adam Creed

Favourite Fives : Adam Creed

I’ve got to know Adam Creed pretty well recently,  even if it has been via the gift of the telephone and electronic mail. Nobody actually meets face to face now anyway do they? The chief orchestrator of Uniformes Generale is a man who knows his own mind and is as passionate about the things he likes as anyone I’ve ever (never) met. […]

Penfield SS15 at Not-Addicted

Penfield SS15 at Not-Addicted

Slip inside the eye of your mind. Apparently, Noel Gallagher used to wear Penfield. You might have heard? Thing is though, it’s a nice jacket. So while he sported this at the height of his fame and gave the brand an injection of indie cool, it’s fair to say Penfield as a brand is now a bit cooler than the ageing […]

Nudie Jeans: The Dry Rainbow

Nudie Jeans: The Dry Rainbow

It’s not everyday you see a rainbow is it? Despite living in one of the wettest/gayest cities in the Western hemisphere they’re still a rarity round these parts. Which is a shame as L’arcobaleno (as it’s known in Italy) is one of those wonderful phenomenas that immediately raises your spirits, fills you with child-like wonder and reminds your jaded soul […]

TOO HOT ‘Who Dares Wins’

TOO HOT ‘Who Dares Wins’

Shot in Ollie’s home city of Brum and featuring the hot-shot shutter work of Bafic Too Hot’s latest editorial ‘Who Dares Wins’ showcases their latest haul of vintage gems about to go on sale this Friday at midday. I’m not sure why they’ve chosen the motto of the SAS though it’s quite possible that in order to obtain such high calibre […]

Veras x The Casual Connoisseur Vronksy Boot

Veras x The Casual Connoisseur Vronksy Boot

The ‘Vronsky’ boot is the fourth collaboration between Veras and The Casual Connoisseur. Given the great demand for all things CC, they’re sure to be another popular choice. And let’s face it, summer may be coming but it’ll only last a weekend, so boots are needed for the forseeable future. Taking name and inspiration from the cult classic movie The […]

Stone Island Shadow Project SS15

Stone Island have collaborated with designers Acronym once more for some super strong SS15 Shadow project action. Quite frankly technical Italo-Germanic garments don’t get any better, for those of you who like some seriously futuristic innovation underneath your black ops style patch. Our top mates at Philip Browne have just taken a fresh delivery of some incredible S.I. Shadow bomber jackets (check […]

Lovingly put together by the cool folks at Dorothy, these beautiful maps are not your ordinary ordnances survey jobs as each one is based on vintage street maps of London, Los Angeles, […]

adidas Originals x Spezial Spring Summer 15

In case you thought that last year’s Spezial collection was a just ‘flash in the pan’, miraculous, one-off event akin to the time St Bernadette clocked Our Lady hovering over her down at the local baths (in a pair of OG Touring) then get a load of this… Gary Aspden’s second Spezial collection has delivered another passionate and well considered capsule containing […]

Le Coq Sportif SS15 Tricolor Collection

When it comes to football, there are few cooler brands than Le Coq Sportif. What they lack in market share and exposure, they more than make up for in really nice stuff and cool cultural significance. St Etienne famously wore their shirts, while the likes of Paolo Rossi and Diego Maradona have won World Cups with the help of that […]

Oi Polloi Rainbow Nudie Party – Manchester – 26/2/15

What you up to next Thursday night? Are you local to Manchester like what we are? If not, I feel bad for you, son. Because we’re all off to a party where the theme is denim and rainbows. Bungle might be there. He won’t really. (He might?) Oi Polloi and Nudie have climbed into bed together and the product is […]

Albam Spring 15 Portraits

I know your antiseptic, your deodorant smells nice, I’d like to get to know you, you’re deep frozen like the ice. How brilliant were X-Ray Spex? One of my favourite songs ever that. “But what the heck do female fronted punk bands have to do with timeless modern british clothing Neil?” I hear you ask. WELL. Albam have wisely chosen […]
