Brandish Christmas List #2 Savile Rogue Cashmere Football Scarves

I have always found it surprising that football clubs haven’t cottoned on to the fact that not all of their fans want to be seen wearing cheap and rather nasty clothes and accessories.

The Parka revival – and why I won’t be buying one

I was never really a proper mod, but have worn mod gear for most of my life. Even more so as I have got older. Maybe the assertion that mod clobber is something that is perfect for the elder gentlemen has a grain of truth in it. Personally I have never really got on with so called ‘mod parkas.’ Actually …

Moore backs Skyfall’s Craig, not Connery, as the best James Bond ever

Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, Craig; six James Bonds, but which is best? At least three of them are too old to fist-fight for the title, so who do we turn to for a definitive answer? Why, Bond himself, that’s who! Roger Moore, the third James Bond, has once again given Daniel Craig his blessing, calling the Skyfall star the …

POLL: Men’s braces – Yay or Nay?

I like a good belt, me. From a thin braided offering to a chunky biker buckle, they’re my proffered gravity-defying trouser accessory. But as the years pile up, and the pounds pile on, my paunch is finding itself more and more at odds with my waistline adornments. So what are my other options? I’d rather walk about in my underpants than wear …

As the world around us becomes increasingly digital, there is something refreshing about keeping somethings ‘analogue.’ I often get teased about the fact that I carry around a calendar and don’t just rely on my iPhone.
