Having just finished work on a cookery show that featured old family recipes, I know all about Herdwick sheep (and how nice they taste in a hot-pot).
Adding to the growing success of his superb clothing line, for AW11 Oly has created a rather suave looking 100% leather holdall for all your weekend away needs.
The first in a series entitled Number Six & Co, Proper contributor and all round cool cat Glenn Kitson has been selected to choose and style pieces from the AW11 selections available at the store.
Urban Industry return with another of their mini-lookbooks, this time focussing on Penfield and in particular the Kasson jacket.
We have to take our titfers off to the witty chaps down at Duffer, for their latest photo- shoot they’ve done something of a British parody of the vintage preppy look..
Its all well and good being kitted out in the finest gear available to man but if you’re wearing a pair of Fred Flintstone boxers and a Primark vest underneath it all then quite frankly, you’re a dickhead. Its one thing looking good but feeling good is just as, if not more important..
Are we all sitting comfortably on our selvedge denim/vintage chino clad arses? Good then I’ll begin….
Good news for those of you on the look out for some luxury luggage to put all your beloved belongings in. One of our favourite American labels J.Panther are now shipping their wonderful hand-made wares worldwide.
OK it’s that time of year when the sun is out and you want to enjoy some cool wind in your hair and perhaps the warm smell of colitas, whatever the fuck they are? And what better way to emulate Don Henley by getting a nice white, medium weight, 100% cotton t-shirt to wear whilst sipping your pink champagne on ice?
Just like a (well dressed, vintage 1950s) bus, we don’t have a competition on here for ages then two turn up at once. Anyway, dodgy metaphors aside, this week those suave Bolognans at 12th Man have given us three amazing prizes to be won, all of which are ideal garments for the forthcoming summer months …
OK as spring is officially here, there’s never been a better time to hang your festering denims up and get a nice bit of colour on your legs. No we’re not talking about six minutes on the electric beach, we’re talking about winning a pair of Tuk-Tuk’s ace new chinos…
Check out these Welder jackets from Chrisophe Hascoat’s ace New York label Taylor Supply. We met Chris albeit briefly at Capsule last month in Paris, he seemed like a smashing bloke…
Surely one of the best things about the hi-tech shenaniganary that is ‘the internet’ is the immediate access to hitherto unknown musical genres, tastes, scenes and mixes. Were it not for the magic of broadband we’d probably still be referring to the music press, annoying radio stations and Later with Jools Holland before deciding what to write on our school bags,
So any-way, being Stockport’s answer to Karl Lagerfeld and Gok Wan, we headed over to Paris last weekend to check out the Capsule and Rendez-Vous trade shows. Something neither of us thought we’d ever end up doing but since issue ten of the mag has blown everyone’s socks off and very nearly sold out in just a month. We decided it’s time to take this clothing lark seriously, well as seriously as we can be.
Heritage, Research……If there are two words to sum up the vision of Russ Gater and Daniel Savory, these two are probably the best. We decided it’d be nice to find out more. Russ kindly answered our questions in Issue 8 of Proper, back in early 2009.
Medical research. I bet if you think of those two words together you think of those “botched” trials from a few years ago when that blokes head swelled to the size of a beach ball. And then his hands fell off, in true Garth Marenghi fashion.
