WISHLIST: Prada Lifestyle Sets

prada.jpg

While most men opt for the safe bet of ties, socks and other traditional Father’s Day gifts, I have always wanted to get something better. I spend weeks and months searching for something perfect in its masculine luxury, but when your dad works for Tesco’s your options are sadly limited. As a result, I often end up presentless and apologetic by the Third Sunday of June (like today, for instance.)

I was a fan of Isabelle’s ‘Caviar’ ties but only this afternoon (how horrendously cruel is that?) found these Prada Lifestlye sets.

It’s time to branch out with these Marks and Spencers socks

It’s easy to assume that socks shopping will be easy. You assume that stores will have socks with designs and plain socks, all in a variety of colours and made from good quality cotton that won’t get a hole in a couple of weeks. Sadly this isn’t the case. When this happens you have to branch out.

WISHLIST: CA4LA Trilby

This week I happen to be in the rather happening city of Mumbai. This former Bombay is, according to US Vogue, the new “It-City” but after landing yesterday I must admit that the gruelling heat wave soon quashed my hopes of glamour and a jet-set style wardrobe. In my stone grey Topman shorts, white belt, Karate Kid t-shirt and flip-flops I realised I was missing something and as soon as I stepped into the light of Indian sun I realised that what I needed was a hat.

Liberty Embossed Leather Holdall

As far as I know, Liberty of London didn’t have an online accessories store until fairly recently. It’s pretty slim pickings at the moment but these embossed leather holdalls half-caught my eye. I say half caught my eye because while I do like the shape and design of the bag there’s just something off with the bag.

Arlington leather messenger bag

For some bizarre reason, I’ve been fixated on finding the perfect leather messenger bag. I really can’t explain why, but I think my subconscious has decided on a look that hasn’t reached my conscious brain yet. Getting away from the inner workings of my mind, this Arlington leather messenger bag is perfect for whatever look my brain has decided for me. It would also look good for those days when you’ve had enough of a black messenger bag.

Monocle x Comme des Garçons: Scent One – Hinoki review

monoclehinoki.jpg

New male fragrances that aren’t endorsed by David Beckham are pretty rare these days, so it’s refreshing to see a magazine like Monocle decide to make one. Given the care they’ve taken in designing their magazine and website, it’s an almost certainly that that Hinoki will be given the same amount of care and attention.

WISHLIST: River Island Marvel Cap

Now I know for a fact that I wasn’t the only one disappointed with Met Gala-attending celebrities lack of Superhero costume inspiration. In fact, Zac Posen was the only attendee who matched up to my high standards of fancy-dress. Therefore, I was delighted when I came across this River Island cap with Marvel Comic decoration (Persil, Armani, River Island- what isn’t Marvel on at the moment!)
