In London? Still have money in your account? In you answered yes to both these questions, then you have no reason to miss out on this DWS Menswear sample sale. If you’ve forgiven Evisu for flooding the market back in the late 90′s then you can pick up some of their items alongside Vivienne Westwood, Hardy Amies and Hugo Boss amongst others. If there’s a better reason to go on a pasta diet for the rest of the month, feel free to let me know.

Now that COS is a success, with three more stores set to open this year, it’s nice to look back on what they wanted to achieve and whether they did so. Thankfully, this Monocle.com video allows you to do just that. For those who haven’t read Monocle magazine, it’s basically an international current affairs magazine with a website that has clearly been designed with the magazine, not as an afterthought.

Pyjamas outside of the house – good look or am I going crazy?

pyjama.jpg

You know when you’ve become so accustomed to something that things that should look odd don’t anymore? That’s how I’m starting to feel with the pyjamas look. Wearing your pyjamas outside of the house should make you look like an extra from One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest – instead I’m thinking that it’s quite a wearable look. As long as you don’t stray too far from your house.

Acne Jeans – Why settle for less?

Why do people put such a low price limit when jeans shopping? Don’t give me the price nonsense either. If you spend £50 on jeans which develop holes after 3 months, then you’ll need to replace them. Do this 3 or 4 times a year and you’ll spend £150-200 on the same awful pair of jeans. So why not save that money up and get these Acne Jeans?

Whyred finally have an online store

Whyred produced one of the best looking pea coats in the jacket’s 300 year history a couple of seasons ago (FACT.) After ringing everywhere from Sweden to US to find one, and coming back empty handed, I was enraptured to hear they’ve now set up a webstore. Which should make things a lot easier this winter.

Trends: Watch & Wear-Public School Drool

bout2.jpg
Out of show season, it gets just that bit harder to predict the trends. However, in typical fashion, the industry moves on; someone gets a haircut, a designer does a high-street collaboration, Amy Winehouse is paid $1 million to do a Louis Vuitton gig. In the case of April, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lacoste. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.

If you’ve been inspired by Cheap Monday’s
Kotsym range but can’t wait until they decide to bring the collection into
stores, then you’ll love this Endovanera
cropped jacket
. It has a fit similar to the Cheap Monday suit and is made
of 100% Pima cotton, which will make it a joy to wear. Well, as much of a joy
as wearing a suit can be. I’m not promising an orgasmic experience here.
