Penguin checked shirt

If grandad retro is your thing then you will probably already be familiar with Penguin clothing, and this madras check shirt ($69) is perfect for the ageing golfer look. Team it with slip on Vans, check Farah slacks and a cap, but if you want something more subtle I’d say pick a slim pair of grey trousers that tone with …

I Love What You’re Wearing: James and Matt

I managed to collar two young chaps at the Great Escape music festival in Brighton who turned out to work in Resident, a local independent record shop and made me realise the limitations of my musical knowledge, shucks!

LRG Thousand hand slap boardies

These shorts (£39.95) probably belong more in an opium den than on the beach and maybe they say "sleaze" more than "surf", but as long as you do stick to wearing them in the sea rather than under your silk smoking jacket, you should be fine. If you fancy something a little less brave, LRG also do the Mr Lava …

Crazy New Terratag Tee

With a range of designs that includes giant, laser-wielding mechanoids, Japanese schoolgirls and Afrika Bambaataa’s Zulu Nation slogan printed on their clothing, I really shouldn’t be surprised by Terratag’s new range of t-shirts, but I am. And on reflection, it isn’t just surprise I’m feeling. It’s fear. Fear because I want this shirt so badly in all its phosphorescent glory, …

Abercrombie Gill Brook Polo

Polo shirts these days seem to be the preserve of everyone, and I mean everyone. From the (fake) Hackett clad Chavs, to the trendy, little emo boys, to the toffee-nosed, Richmond-Rugby set, most blokes favour this "smarter" alternative to its collarless cousin at one time or the other. But for all its ubiquity in the fashion world, its only Penguin …

The Sunday Times interviewed three young men about their love for the dandy style. Guy Hills who runs Dashing Tweeds said: "I dress to amuse both myself and others.
