TSPTR Halloween Collection

Got a halloween party coming up but don’t want to look like a complete and utter pumpkin? Well your solution to looking dead cool but without appearing a total ‘I’m not joining in with this shit’ party-pooper comes via this ace spooky-snoopy stuff from TSPTR. Either that or you can just cover yourself in toilet roll which I’ve heard is […]

Too Hot – Ruder Than You

Too Hot – Ruder Than You

Cover versions are rarely much good are they? But in the case of the latest issue of Proper, it’s fair to say the feedback on our four cover issue 16 has been overwhelmingly positive. Two of the covers (adidas ones) are close to selling out already and the other two from the Too Hot shoot are set to be unleashed […]

Ardour Brand: CurveAll Jacket & Cord Scarf

Ardour Brand: CurveAll Jacket & Cord Scarf

Know the term “Heritage” is now a bit frowned upon in the #menswear sphere; sitting as it does alongside ’70’s DJs’ and ‘Kids’ TV presenters’ in getting people turning up their noses at something that’s ‘not quite right‘. Nothing worse than fat-mods in their 50’s trying to dress in the same way they did when they first visited Margate as a fresh faced […]

Monsieur Lacenaire Commuter Parka

Monsieur Lacenaire Commuter Parka

At the best of times, October is a transitional month, in England anyway. Shorts and t-shirts have given way to light jackets, sweats and kecks of various types. Then it starts to rain cats, dogs and probably budgies. This month I’ve worn invisible socks and shorts, I’ve sported sunglasses and I’ve donned the down parka. Why must life be such […]

[Mix] Scott Proper : Love been found

[Mix] Scott Proper : Love been found

I get slightly uncomfortable writing about my own “work” – so in this instance I contacted a good pal to do the narcissistic bit. All the ammunition I gave him was a tracklist and ninety minutes worth of music, to let him dig deeper and poetically wax lyrical, pardon the obvious pun. Over to you Ade… It starts it breathes […]

Sperry Chukkas at Liquor Store

Sperry Chukkas at Liquor Store

Look at that weather outside. It’s straight up Autumn out there. The leaves are all orange and all over the pavement, it’s windy enough to blow your Grandma’s hat off and it’s nearly time to ignore all the firework safety campaigns and jeopardise that burgeoning modelling career.  When it comes to your footwear, as nice as exclusive, extra Spezial, suede trainers […]

Introducing… LFT FLD

Introducing… LFT FLD

The motherfucking 1990s street-wear saga continues… This time the ‘brand new you’re retro’ vibes come courtesy of talented twosome Gareth Skewis (Palace, Slam City Skates) and Paul Ruffles (size?, FootPatrol) both of who’s backgrounds come through very clearly in street smart, skate friendly schmutter LFT FLD. Subtle detailing combined with Fergus Purcell’s striking graphic work combine to great effect, bringing […]

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. Nonetheless Paul & Shark is a great brand that makes high-quality clothing the right way. It’s designed for yachting enthusiasts and […]

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

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)

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

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

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 […]

Arpenteur at The Great Divide

Oui! Oui! C’est workwear temps aujourd’hui! Alongside Gitanes, Ricard, Orangina & cheese with a cow pissing herself on the box comes another slice of French classiness in the form of relatively new label Arpenteur. The Great Divide have just taken delivery of four vêtements all of which are perfectly suited to living the good life and giving you that gallic grafter je […]
