Winter is just a short hike around the corner (and up a snow-flecked hill) and the question is, will this mountaineering palarver continue to prevail? Are you even into it? Well, we suggest you take this quiz in readiness for the wind and sleet arriving. After all, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.
Ralph against Rene. Lauren versus Lacoste. Which is best and why? Are you arsed? We’re not (we are).
Prompted by this ace/daft t-shirt we started thinking. Who would win in a fight to the death?
It’s always interesting to see where designers get their latest inspiration from, Gants forthcoming collaboration with Michael Bastian has taken the native American sport of lacrosse as their…
We’ve long been fans of 6876 so it was with curiosity we headed down to their HQ earlier this year. On that occasion we saw the first samples of Kenneth MacKenzie’s collaboration with the Regent Belt Company, released soon after under the name of R6. Well, that stuff obviously went down well because it’s back again with a second collection for AW10.
Maybe like me, you’ve spent a bit of time working doing shit factory jobs or schlepping round building sites in order to stay away from the breadline at some point in your miserable life.
In Issue nine of proper you may have read that I’m seriously getting into graphics novels though not the babyish ones about men with pizzas for faces, more the factual based, war/Victorian serial killer type content.
Is Shropshire the new Ibiza? No. But then again when I decided to spend a week there, with my 14 week old daughter and a limited budget, the last thing I wanted or needed was seven days of bpms and bandanas. They do still wear them over there right?
We caught up with our generation’s foremost philosopher and talented author Alain De Botton, to see just why on earth he’s written a (fascinating) book studying people doing what they tend to do for the majority of their adult lives, working.
If you’re like me & you don’t just resemble Ollie Reed but you often find yourself feeling like him, then I’m sure you’d welcome all advice (however pathetic/dangerous/morally wrong it is) on how to get rid of them, so here’s my advice.
When our mate Lee posted a link to this video on our forum back in March the responses were emphatic. “The best thing I have ever seen” was one. “That is fucking ace” was another. Unfortunately we didn’t have a website to share it with you all at that point and since then the world and his wife has been trying to decipher the lyrics while trying not to tap their Clarks wearing feet to the tune.
I recently realised my photobucket account contained several hundred images, most of which were photos of clothes or shoes I’d sold. So, slightly inspired by the ace oneupmanship blog amongst others, I thought it’d be an interesting twist on the ‘recent pickups’ style posts but instead of things I’ve recently bought I’d post about things I’ve long since sold.
Who seriously drinks Carling these days? Why would you? It is to beer what Henley t-shirts are to fashion and James Corden is to comedy. Yes, that’s right we’re well snobbish. To try and get to the root of this we decided to see what the Campaign for Real Ale had to say about it.
Richard Gill is the foremost retailer of vintage clothing in Manchester. Having occupied various retail spaces around the Northern Quarter of the city over a ten year period,…
Who’d have thought it, eh? 21 years since the first summer of love gave us acid house and put rhythmic 4/4 music from Chicago onto the nation’s dancefloors (with a little bit of Ibizan europop chucked in for good measure).
As memories of the decade that spawned the the BMX bike and Betamax gradually fade there are a few things that are more vivid than others.
Rarely would you find a shop inspired by a culture of shoplifting so it’s no surprise to see that the only example of such a place is in Liverpool. Tired and predictable stereotypes aside, Transalpino is a genuine source of impressive footwear for match going types countrywide despite only being a year old. The business itself was established just 14 months ago in September 2006, with the website following a few weeks later.
