David Guttenfelder’s Uncensored North Korean Instagram Pictures

David Guttenfelder’s Uncensored North Korean Instagram Pictures

It would be easy to try and sound a bit un-Proper and talk about what a landmark event this was; a world renown photojournalist Instagraming his way around North Korea. So I’ll avoid that best I can, as we don’t come here to get heavy. Instead, let’s all look at these pictures from one of the world’s greatest photographers, taken […]

The Garbstore London | AW14 Shop Lookbook

The Garbstore London | AW14 Shop Lookbook

Not content with a shiny new website and a brand new season’s worth of wonderful schmutter, Garbstore have just delivered their AW14 shop look-book to our virtual door. As can be expected from London/L.A.’s coolest clothes shop it’s a tasteful trade off of artfully drawn arrows and chopped up limbs, which are all swooningly swathed in the likes of Engineered Garments, Needles. Norse […]

Ally Cappellino at Peggs and Son

Ally Cappellino at Peggs and Son

Peggs and Son have currently got in more bags than a Barnsley lapdancers. Rucksack bags, wash bags, helmet bags, satchel bags, money bags (wallets) and even bin bags. They don’t have bin bags. They do have plenty of options in from Ally Cappellino though. I liked Ally Cappellino instantly because the name sounds like that of a fictional Italian playmaker, who […]

‘Perfecto Brand’ AW14 By Schott NYC

‘Perfecto Brand’ AW14 By Schott NYC

Is it me or is are jackets going a bit heritage again? Now the cold is drawing in, I’m facing a daily battle of pertex versus wool, my Norrona is currently coming out on top though I just know that red and black Filson number is going to have the edge as soon as the clocks go back. Sitting firmly in […]

Beams Plus Shirt Cord Jacket at Oi Polloi

Beams Plus Shirt Cord Jacket at Oi Polloi

If you’re looking at this site you have to love corduroy. Them’s the rules. It’s item 4 of the Proper Mag Manifesto (following on from: Wearing jackets in pubs, Loving trainers, and The constant search for the perfect fit of jeans). If you don’t love a bit of The Manchester Cloth, either in pant, shirt, jacket, hat or hell-fire even […]

O’Neill x Pendleton

O’Neill x Pendleton

Now here’s a cosy bunk up if ever I saw one, cowabunga surf dudes O’Neill have been hanging ten with the Beach Boys’ favourite shirt makers to create a smart capsule collection for AW14. Though it’s all decent, for me it’s the O’Riginals X Penwool jacket that really sticks out as the star of this stateside show, in all it’s Hyperdry, […]

Palace x adidas Originals Collection

Palace x adidas Originals Collection

We’ve done something we never do. We’ve seen something on another site and nicked their pictures. I’m sure ours were in the post, or at least scheduled to be emailed to us in the next couple of days. We got asked to feed out a rather innocuous video featuring the respective logos of adidas and Palace. Anyway, all property is […]

Jon K & Kelvin Brown : Eyes Down Live PT 2

Fuck genre’s. Yeah, fuck em’. We’re down like that. Eyes Down; a Manchester institution returned this month after a hiatus of around 10 years and we’ve managed to secure just over 2 hours of this savoir-faire. Jon K and Kelvin Brown make up the selectors, mashing many styles and tempos within the mix – you even got an MC (Mr […]

Fjallraven AW14 at Not Addicted

Fjallraven AW14 at Not Addicted

When the nauses of the internet unite and throw about phrases like ‘wardrobe staple’, ‘shirting’ and ‘bibflange’ it’s a massive turn off, even if I made one of those up. But when looking at Fjallraven this season, and indeed every season it’s hard to find a phrase that sums it up better. I’m going to try though. Well priced, well […]

Gloverall Monty Duffle Coat at Oi Polloi

Simon & Garfunkel once sang “The autumn winds blow chilly and cold,” and they were right – they do. However, there are ways to prevent such conditions from being a problem, and one of them is equipping yourself with a well-made coat that is composed mainly of wool. Gloverall have been making such coats right here in Merrie Olde England since 1951. Stuff […]

Hold the front page, we’ve somehow managed to convince another woman to do a favourite five for us! Which now brings the female quota up to the staggering amount of two. Oh well, quality not quantity right? Speaking of which stepping up to the plate this time we have the charismatic Rock ‘n ‘Roll diva Denise Johnson who has provided […]

M-68 Black Project Sweatshirt

When is a sweatshirt not just a sweatshirt? Nope, it’s not a trick question nor am I about to adopt a faux-sexy voice and go into an M&S style advert telling you how this sweat will improve your middle class credentials. We make no bones here at Proper about the fact that some brands are better than others. So when […]

LOVE HATS

Loves the game but can’t stand what it has become. Probably behaved intolerably in his own right but now cringes at the behaviour of today’s overly excitable #youth. He likes what he knows and he knows what he likes. The antithesis to to the more ubiquitous Weir, a McMurphy is everything you stand for. You. Yes, you. You; in your understated […]
