Newfangle Bojador Shirt in Flannel

Newfangle Bojador Shirt in Flannel

As I write this, the wind is whistling a pretty threatening tune. Time to layer up and discover our thick skin isn’t it? Well, ticking both those boxes is the Newfangle Bojador shirt. Taking its name from one of the most important landmarks in Portuguese history, the Bojador shirt celebrates what was described as the Cape of Fear. It’s a point […]

Trickett Winter Collection

Trickett Winter Collection

Aside from being East Lancashire’s very own master sock-latier, the good folks at Trickett are also known for producing dead clever-space age-NASA technology tee shirts, limited edition backpacks, weekend holdalls and toiletry bags, sweatshirts and gloves and even pancake syrup (seriously). Very fittingly, as seen as today is Lancashire Day, this little hub of sock production and American candy in […]

ORIGINAL MAN (Gestalten)

ORIGINAL MAN (Gestalten)

Although Gestalten rather eloquently calls this book The Tautz Compendium of Less Ordinary Gentlemen personally I’d have called it The Big Book of Brilliant Bastards. Because that’s exactly what it is, an extensive list of extraordinary gentlemen with words and photos telling us just why they are or were so fucking ace. Helpfully divided into definitive four sections of Artist, Hero, Libertine and […]

Spiewak Golden Fleece SS15

Spiewak Golden Fleece SS15

Oh Lord. These jackets look like they’re from the future, because frankly, they are from the future. Spring 2015 to be precise. Not content with bringing out the coolest Acid Camo jacket of the year, Spiewak have only gone and followed up with something arguably better. Their Golden Fleece range looks amazing to my contact lens-clad eyes and when I […]

Newness from NOMOI

Newness from NOMOI

The NOMOI family tree has spread it’s sartorial branches a little since we last mentioned them on here, expanding skyward from their original three pieces to an impressive nine. The new kit consists of a new piece of outerwear, two jackets, one mid layer garment (a body-warmer to you), an over-shirt, some trousers and nicely topped off with a scarf, just in […]

Black Project Arco From 6876 x C’H’C’M

Black Project Arco From 6876 x C’H’C’M

To think that not so long ago ‘Tweed’ was firmly routed as fabric of choice for the echelons of the upper working classes. Particularly worn as a way of keeping warm and dry as they undertook their country pursuits of fox bothering, trout-tickling, stag rutting or however else they satisfied their blood lust. “What, what; tallyhoe and all dat”. Fast […]

Edwin Denim Co. x Cookson & Clegg

Man do I love a bit of denim news, especially when it’s all about dead good denim that’s dead limited and dead cool and well you know, just dead, dead, dead good and that. Our top mates at Edwin have got together with legendary Military & Workwear manufacturers Cookson & Clegg who have produced two handmade denim styles in Edwin’s 14oz Japanese […]

[Mix] Steve Lee : Natural Flutter

Let’s go back, way back – back into time… Ok calm down, a couple of years then. It’s been too long since Steve Lee put some records together for us and you know what, we believe it’s well overdue. As with all the DJ’s we ask we give them an open floor to what selection they choose; style and tempo […]

The Rig Out Issue 8

The Rig Out Issue 8

Spiewak, Our Legacy, Baracuta, Reebok, Altamont. All bases covered there, eh? And without wanting to appear too fashion, they’re all totally relevant as of November 2014, aren’t they? I’ve not seen a copy in person (I was going to say ‘in the flesh’ then, but I feel like I’ve said it loads lately, so elected to go with ‘in person’ instead) […]

Mamnick Edale Smock

I once supervised a Duke of Edinburgh expedition in Derbyshire’s Peak District. This mainly involved walking up Mam Tor hill, waiting for hours at checkpoints and sloping off for a pint once those on the expedition had been reminded how to orientate their maps. Great times. I can’t remember if we went anywhere near Edale but this most Northern sounding parish […]

Up step these forward thinking little things from the good people at Mowbray Leather Goods. This is TROVE. On sale since last month, the back story behind these […]

Kings of the bag makers Chapman have created their latest collection in honour of the last King of Cumbria. The legendary King ‘Dunmail’ who after his demise apparently had his crown thrown deep into Grisedale Tarn by his faithful warriors after a bad result on the battlefield. Although the crown has yet to be found there’s a stone cairn marking his final […]

Asics Christmas Pack

Everyone has gone #trainers mad this year haven’t they? If they’re not waltzing about with bubbles underscoring their heel, they’ve been re-captivated by the three stripes. And if they’re really, really cool, they’ve been going a tad more obscure with the likes of New Balance, Saucony and Asics. And it’s with the latter we’re concerned today. You see their festive […]

“What’s in the (Barbour waxed holdall) bag man?” I have no idea mate. But what I do know is that those cool kids over in Merseyside have been buzzing around the docks in a proper cool Fiat 126 all togged up in the Weavers Door style for the fifth instalment of their Weavers Wardrobe feature. On show are various bits of Norse […]

Dennis Stock: Time Is On Your Side (Prestel)

If you’re in the mood for some moody and monochromatic magic then may I be so bold as to suggest you delve behind the lens of Dennis Stock? Part of the legendary Magnum stable Dennis’s sensuous shutter managed to capture some of the most iconic faces of the second half of the twentieth century. His enigmatic stills of James Dean being perhaps his most […]

Newfangle Serra Scarf

You’ve all seen the alarmist weather reports, warning of an impending freeze. The cynic in me reckons all the big coat lads get together and invent bad weather so they can sell more coats. Then I give my head a wobble and realise the date. It’ll be December soon, the first knockings of proper winter, where the central heating is […]
