Despite this amount of organic jeans available, there still isn’t much in the way of eco-friendly bags. If you’re looking to save the planet through your bag purchases, you’ll be interested in these heat pressed bags by Gregor Timlin.

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.

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.

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.
