On our recent jaunt to London, a couple of us had the pleasure of spending time with 6876’s Kenneth MacKenzie and Garbstore’s Ian Paley. Both were exceptional hosts, and better still, both make things we really, really like.

With that in mind, it was pretty ace to hear them both tell us about the collaboration they had planned.

The collaboration between London store The Hideout and Americana/workwear brand Dickies seeks to take the classic ethos of Dickies and mould it into something with a more contemporary angle, all the while keeping the essence of Dickies. It’s a great selection of basics and is brilliantly priced. Little or no branding too, for those of you who like to go about your business without showing off who makes your clothes.

The third issue of the excellent Rig Out Magazine features some of the greatest garments money can buy, and a genuine record breaker. In these times of cyber show offs and every man and his goldfish blogging about clothing, it’s refreshing to see people doing things the old fashioned way for all the right reasons. It’s far from a gimmick or a point of difference thing though. The Rig Out 3 is put together by clued up people who appreciate real things of integrity and substance and that shines through.

It’s that time of the year isn’t it. You’re opening the cupboards and hoping the moths haven’t savaged your woolly jumpers (vacuum pack them, you div), you’re wondering whether it’s quite cold enough for big jackets.

Have you ever wondered what you’d save if your house was on fire? Obviously family and pets would come first (unless your family are divs and your pets stink), but after that, what would you save? Gerry very kindly opened a window to his mind and has taken a few pictures in order to share his top ten.

Around ten years ago I was working in a call centre outside Manchester. Myself and some colleagues returned from lunch and were travelling by elevator. An older guy called Tom from Sales jumped in just as the doors were closing.

He began making small talk with someone as he stood directly in front of me. I was transfixed, unable to break my stare from his face.

As a bit of a sucker for a bit of vintage Americana, I’ve been buying parkas and jackets from the other side of the water for quite a few years now. I thought I’d had every conceivable combination so far, from vintage Izod Lacoste of all shapes and sizes, to Woolrich 65/35 Mountain Parkas and the better known 60/40 Parkas from Sierra Designs and many others.

We got a very interesting email from a graduate of St Martins called Rohan Chhabra this week (I feel like Jimmy Saville reading this out) asking if we were interested in seeing his coat, after looking at the pictures we thought we’d mis-read it and he’d actually said goat…

As lovers of all things Italian, we’ve been into the Cosmic Disco vibe for quite some time now and have been voraciously downloading any mixes from this genre that we can get our grubby, passata stained hands on.
