admin Accessories Leave a Comment

Slightly kinky, Atmos and Head Porter have come up with these super-shiny patent-leather messenger bags, which look like they could hold everything and anything including furry handcuffs, a rampant rabbit and a two-litre bottle of super-saver bulk-buy KY jelly. Not that I’d know aboout that sort of thing. The bags come in two colour schemes – red and purple and …

Isabelle Accessories, News Leave a Comment

Recent research has confirmed what I have always known when men tote a bag around they generally stuff it full of expensive gadgetry, while women like me like to fill our bags with receipts and snotty tissues. General Insurance’s Andrew Beard said: "Man bags have quickly become a mainstream accessory, helping men lug around their ever more valuable stash of …

They’re too cool for school… have gone through a great renaissance with their classy lines of retro sportswear and accessories. One treat I’ve found in my quest to buy myself a new bag is this cracking Dunlop Cessna Bag. …

Avery Coonley House cufflinks

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

Cufflinks don’t often make an impression on me. Afterall, they’re usually obscured under blazer sleeves and more often than not are just a couple of chunks of metal keeping your cuffs together. But these Avery Coonley House cufflinks ($40) certainly made me look twice. It may be because their appearence is made all the more imposing because of their relative …

Topman Dunlop bag

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

Unfortunately it’s PVC rather than leather but even so, this is a cool looking vintage style bag. Whereas once Dunlop was the curse of the school kid, all their products now have serious credibility, seen most recently in the resurgence of the Greenflash. Available through Topman, the bag is £20 , which is fairly reasonable and should be big enough …

The brandish guide to top hats and cravats a la Pete Doherty

admin Accessories, Clothing, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

I expect that what he did for trilbys and skinny ties, Peter Doherty (or Pick-Pocket Pete as he will henceforth be known) will also do for top hats and cravats, in light of his recent dalliance with the derelict-dandy style. There is however, a rumour circulating that PPP isn’t such the trend revivalist that he is made out to be …

Burton straw hat

Isabelle Accessories Leave a Comment

I’m so glad Burton have seen the light and decided to put a regular straw hat up on their site, their natural straw stetson is only £14 and looks a damn sight better than their artificially faded monstrosity I mentioned last week. With hats there’s always a danger you’ll end up looking like a idiot so it’s best to err …

Top 5 sunglasses

admin Accessories, Top Five 1 Comment

Apparently it’s Summer, but I’m not sure, considering I got soaked twice this weekend. Not that I was at Glastonbury or doing anything even remotely outdoorsy. I was walking to and from the shops. Bloody rain. Anyway, it’s supposed to be Summer, so we should all be slapping on suncream, wearing hats and protecting our eyes from harmful rays. In …

Topman bandana

admin Accessories Leave a Comment

Probably more catered to the nu-rave set, I still can’t help but like this Topman bandana (£4). It’s less the design and more to do with the fact that it reminds me of Dexys Midnight Runners, one of my favourite bands when I was a kid. I also reckon the New Wave-Nu Rave-Hobo look is going to be big this …
