ORSMAN Spring/Summer 15 by The Great Divide

ORSMAN Spring/Summer 15 by The Great Divide

Monochromatic, geometic, nautical street-wear vibes in the area! As well as selling great garms The Great Divide also enjoy taking really, really good photographs of those great garms. Their latest shutter work features key pieces from Orsman’s SS15 collection shot close to their East London store in Clapton which makes great use of the gritty, industrial canal-side surroundings. Available right here my hip […]

Philip Browne SS15 Look-Book

Philip Browne SS15 Look-Book

When a shop happens to stocks loads of decent brands and caters to a variety of diverse styles it’s easy to get side-tracked when you’re looking for something sympathetic to your own clothing criteria. Rather helpfully our top mates at Philip Browne’s menswear have produced their very own look book featuring a selection of super strong looks using items from their latest […]

The New Nomads (gestalten)

The New Nomads (gestalten)

Sadly this sexy new coffee table book isn’t about an early 90s dance act making a comeback but please don’t let that put you off. This fine travel tome is all about the modern movers and shakers of this world who will move around the globe at the drop of the hat surviving only on fruits, berries, organically sourced chai lattes […]

Palace x adidas Footwear

Palace x adidas Footwear

Although all four of the adi x Palace shoes featured here are ace, I really do think that the grey pro gazelles could quite possibly be the trainer of the year so far for me. I mean just look at them.. perforated suede, that Palace triangly logo on the tongue, a well ZX kinda heel support.. yeah I’d happily give […]

Newfangle Espichel Pocket Sweatshirt

Newfangle Espichel Pocket Sweatshirt

I’m sitting in a suburban coffee shop writing this. Not a trendy one, but the type that treads the fine line between being trendy and giving old people and housewives what they want. Round here, that isn’t a skinny decaf latte (apart from when I come in). The food is alright, the coffee is good but they could really do […]

2015: A Cartocon Odyssey Collection

2015: A Cartocon Odyssey Collection

I wish Dundee was nearer where I lived. I really wanna be able to nip into Cartocon because the stuff they stock is ace. Now they’ve released this more than decent collection for SS15. Look at this mental photo shoot to mark it too. Utilising old VHS tape branding, photoshop start screens and simple branding, it’s hard not to like all […]

Socks for Spring – Wigwam Cypress

Socks for Spring – Wigwam Cypress

I’m a sucker for expensive socks. But I’d argue they’re not expensive if they last for years. They’re actually a bargain. I’ve got half a dozen pairs of Wigwam Cypress to go with my various Anonymous Ism and other show off socks. But genuinely, the Wigwams seem to wash and wear the best. I’m honestly wearing some right now. Navy, […]

K•SWISS x Oi Polloi ‘Irvine T’

I bet you didn’t think you’d be going mental over a pair of K•SWISS this week did you? Funny old world innit? The Irvine T (previously known as the ‘Deuce’) is a no nonsense, stripped down, tennis shoe with a striking toffee-coloured gum toe box that could well make them successors to the adi Superstar’s current crown. Dead nice aren’t they? Oh and […]

Commonn Store: NB 996

If you’ve been pounding the pavements as much as I have recently (don’t ask) then you too will appreciate the blister avoiding benefits that a REVlite sole unit provides. I mean it’s all well and good looking suave in the hood but if your feet end up looking like they’ve been involved in some kind of martial arts based bamboo beating […]
