J.Lindeberg Belts

admin Accessories

Everyone needs a belt. It’s a scientific fact. While it’s pretty easy finding a nice plain one for work, you may want something a bit more stylish when you go out. Offerings seem pretty slim for those who don’t want a studded neon pink jelly belt or a horrible eagle emblem. Luckily J.Lindenberg have come to our rescue. J.Lindeberg’s belts …

Double-edged Sword

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

It’s quite hard to pin down exactly who or what Surface to Air is. One thing I know, they’re enviably cool. They’re a collective of designers, film-makers, photographers etc who seem to have carte-blanche to get inject their goth chic into any cutting edge project, happening or campaign they choose. It’s enough to make a boy sick with jealousy. They …

Paul Smith Wallet

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

Wallets make the world go round, so the old saying goes. Without one you’d just be left carrying your money and cards in your pocket loose, like some kind of simpleton. With wallets being stuck in your pocket for the large majority of the time, you’d want a certain ‘wow’ factor when you do bring it out. Paul Smith’s leather …

Scarves, like everything else above the waist this season, are getting bigger. The most fashionable necks this winter will be hidden in yards of fabric. It’s practical too: when it’s too hot for a jumper but too cold for a T-shirt, you can just swaddle yourself in a big scarf and you’re all set. I’m very glad about this. I …

More Bitter Than Sweet

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

The jeweller behind Bittersweets NY must be a right sicko – but I like her. This nameless designer says that her jewellery is inspired by everyday objects, but her ‘everyday’ includes maggots, earthworms and fake vampire teeth. She must lead an upsetting existence. Still, the jewellery she makes is witty and beautifully crafted, as witnessed by this dagger and heart …

Topman Leather Gloves

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

The good thing about leather gloves is that they’re never out of fashion. Sure, they’re never in fashion either, but at least you’re not freezing your fingers off just trying to keep up with trends. With the right outfit leather gloves can look pretty suave, but with the wrong one you could like a bit Patrick Bateman. Although even that’s …

Red Dunlop bag from Topman

Isabelle Accessories Leave a Comment

It’s officially winter now, and Topman have got a great Dunlop bag to brighten up your autumnal outfits. The red colour is amazing, and just looking at it I feel cheered up! It reminds me of tinned cream of tomato soup, which is another perfect antidote to rainy grey days. The bag’s retro stylings make it look great with office …

Top five scarves, including a budget effort from Topman, Lee’s preppy-style neck-wear and the daddy of all scarves by Steven Alan

admin Accessories, Clothing, Top Five Leave a Comment

Reasons to love winter #21: Scarves. Actually, that should include all winter related accessories. One of the worst things about male fashion that for pretty much two seasons out of the year, there are no accessories for men. Sure, we get some smart satchels and belts but, other than a slew of stupid looking baseball caps, that’s about it. Then …

Top five fingerless gloves for the coming winter

admin Accessories, Top Five Leave a Comment

I always though fingerless gloves were the preserve of the homeless and grubby old men digging up potatoes on allotments, but it appears that they’ve made it on to the autumn/winter season’s must have list. Although I still reckon they’re slightly pointless (aren’t the fingers the bits that get most cold?), there are some pretty sweet examples of gloves sans …

MosMea explanation mark bag. Designed for women, should be worn by everyone

admin Accessories 2 Comments

Just so there are no pretenses that could potentially lead to you feeling like an idiot, this is a ladies bag, designed for women, by a woman. Wear this in the right (or wrong, possibly) circles, and someone is sure to point out this indubitable yet, in my view, irrelevant fact. While not essentially masculine, I think this satchel by …
