Remember Silas? Well they’re back and have created an impressive collaboration with KEY (Keep up earth yourself) as part of their already extensive AW11 range. KEY hail from OKAYAMA, one of the notorious areas of Japanese denim manufacturing,
Although it might be starting to get a little nippier, it’s around this time of year when we start witnessing some serious sunlight and (hopefully) a bit less cloud. What better way to combat these bright, crisp days than with a pair of super limited edition Oakley Blacklight Frogskins
If there are two things that have been constants in my life, it’s Clarks Originals and reggae music, getting into both of them from a very early age, they’ve stuck with me through thick and thin. Two reliable old friends in an increasingly inconsistent and crazy world.
More cool shirts from their AW11 collection have arrived online at Tuk-Tuk as well as some heavier winter-friendly chinos. Including a great new work-wear shirt with nice subtle contrast detailing. Four brand new check shirts, some with button-down collars, some without. And three very smart polka dot shirts…
Great news! One of Albam’s first and arguably their best designs, the much adored Fisherman’s Cagoule is back after a four year hiatus. Released in a strictly limited run in a range of premium fabrics as part of Albam’s archive project
Hot on the heels of the Fjällräven Classic trek comes ‘Fjällräven Polar’…
Inspired by the excellent Pica Post article on the four pocket parka we decided to delve into this era of the great American outdoors and one of the classic ‘DIY’ brands that emerged from this scene, Kelty.
I’m not sure where or when my affinity with French things started, possibly it stemmed from the love I had for my first Lacoste track-suit top or the coveted beige Le Coq Sportif woolly jumper I owned that went oh so well with my wrangler semi-flares (back when those things mattered).

If like us, you eat up all things vintage and American in a similar way to how Popeye eats his spinach then you might want to take a look at this latest tome from Taschen.
Hopefully it’s no secret to our readers just how much we really, really love Clarks Originals here at Proper. Though there are lots of other phenomenal ‘artisan’ shoes out there and some truly sublime boots and sneakers that we get rather giddy over, in terms of consistent quality and heritage nobody can hold a candle to our beloved Clarks

Any mod/cool person worth their speed/salt should know all about the legendary artist Peter Blake and his impeccable works of (pop) art. The word ‘pop’ couldn’t be more apt for his particular brand of impressive album design, having worked on covers for the Beatles, The Who, Paul Weller and Oasis.

We’ve seen lots of highly respected designers featuring great accessories made from Irish materials of late so it’s really nice to see an actual Irish label at last..
As previously documented on here when I sit back and recall certain stations of my semi-eventful life, there’s always an epic sound-track to accompany these haunting and vivid…
