Kellogg’s Frosties old-school t-shirt. It’s greeeeeaaaat!

In the real world, tigers probably don’t eat sugar-frosted flakes, but we can forgive Kellogg’s for not knowing that, because Tony the Tiger (Anthony to his mum) is one of our all-time favourite cereal-related characters. He’s positive, he doesn’t eat people alive and he has a really greeeeaaat catchphrase. By wearing this splendid t-shirt, you can pledge your allegiance to …

Haynes Manual bag

Ah the Haynes Manual, brings back memories of when my dad was a mechanic. He would come in from the garage at night, wash his oily hands in Swarfega and then show us all the terrible injuries he’d sustained during the day over a Fosters or Supermalt (for him) and Turkish Delights (for me and my sister). Fond memories aside, …

It’s no longer a no-no to wear a smart jacket with a pair of jeans.

Asda has just launched what it claims is Britain’s cheapest suit. Customers can now pick up the suit for just £19 as part of Asda’s George clothing range.
