Complete the Ivy League look with Filofax

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.

Is Baggy/Madchester the next big thing in men’s fashion?

The other day The Guardian’s music/fashion correspondent Alexis Petridis wrote about how men’s fashion has suddenly become massively influenced by one year, 1988 and specifically the time in which 80s fashions (think denim shirts, girlie pumps), collided with the 1950s (think quiffs, Levis 501s, Rayban Wayfarers etc).
