How to wear a scarf – and ten you’d look great in

Ashley Accessories, knitwear Leave a Comment

In Winter, at least, the obvious purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm, but sartorially speaking a scarf has a multitude of uses from adding a splash of colour to an otherwise slightly dull suit through to adding a degree of formality to casual clothes. Personally I am a die-hard stripey or houndstooth scar wearer. They can …

Brandish Christmas List #2 Savile Rogue Cashmere Football Scarves

Ashley Accessories, Football features, Sport Leave a Comment

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

Ashley Accessories, Timewarp 3 Comments

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

Gerald Lynch Accessories Leave a Comment

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 …

I like a good belt, me. From a thin braided offering to a chunky biker buckle, they’re my proffered gravity-defying trouser accessory.
