Style: Levi’s 60s retro Made And Crafted Striped T Shirt

By Stefano on January 25th, 2013

Ok, so it might still be freezing outside and summer wear probably isn’t that high on your mind, but spring and summer collections are already filtering their way through to the stores and one very impressive range is from Levi’s.

The brand have got a very interesting vintage style bomber jacket and a great looking striped sweat shirt as well as a strong line up of coloured jeans.

But it is the striped T shirts that have caught my eye. This £62 striped T shirt is available in four different incarnations including burnt orange, but I reckon it is this blue version that will be the big seller.

It has a great pattern and is made from super soft cotton. It is quite fitted too.

Available here from Oi Polloi

Style Safari – Primark’s blue suede Desert Boots and striking festival-friendly Waterproof Jackets

By Stefano on January 24th, 2013

As you probably already know Primark doesn’t sell its range online. You have to go into the store to buy its clothes. It can also be a bit hit and miss with what it sells too. However the spring  collection, which seems to be filtering its way into its stores now, looks like its strongest for a while.

We have already written about blue suede shoes (well navy ones, but that doesn’t have the cheesy pop culture link) already and Primark has a pair of blue Desert Boots for the give-away price of £15. Like the grey/brown trim and laces too.

Another £15 goodie that caught our eye are these waterproof hooded jackets. They are available in light (Man City esque) blue and brown and sport a white piping at the bottom. They remind me of a jacket that Lambretta sold a few years back.  They look like perfect festival wear.



Style – Last call for the Richard James sale

By Stefano on January 23rd, 2013

The Savile Row based Richard James has been around since the early 90s and in that time has delivered thousands of  sharply cut suits, classic shoes, super warm Merino socks and more.

And if you want some classic, but very contemporary English style then it is worth having a quick peek at the brand’s website now as its sale is about to come to an end.

Up until Saturday you can get as much as 50% of a lot of the winter range including this 100% camel wool zip front, funnel neck cardigan in Atlantic which retails for £150, as opposed to just shy of £300.

I have never worn camel wool but apparently is is light, durable and very warm.

While you are on the site don’t miss the colourful Cashmere and Merino socks – from £9 a pop.

And here’s a quick video of what the brand has planned for the rest of 2013.

Style Safari – Fred Perry Barrel Bag

By Stefano on January 22nd, 2013

Still agonising over whether you need a bag to lug all your gear around? Well I’d get over it. How else are you going to transport your iPad, Kindle, various chargers – and maybe even the odd book or mag if you are old school?

One option that more and more blokes seem to be adopting are medium sized Barrel bags. These are the smaller versions of the the kit bags that you used to put your footy stuff in back in your fourth form days.

There’s now a good range that are suitably stylish, classically retro and big enough to accommodate a load of gadgets.

I love this Navy one from Fred Perry that has just gone on sale via The End. It not only has a striking Blue and Beige finish, but there’s a load of little details too like the Embossed Laurel Logo Stud and the small zip pocket at one end.

You can buy it now for £55. its is also available in grey and yellow and there are also a pair of Fred Perry shoulder bags that sell for £45.

Style Safari – InterCity British Rail T shirts

By Stefano on January 21st, 2013

Train travel was much more fun in the 80s. Then you had the wrong sort of leaves on the track, pissed footy fans on Inter City Specials, Jimmy Saville doing the TV adverts and timetables that were quite possibly penned but The Brothers Grimm. Yes those days sure were fun.

Actually the best bit about the, coughs, golden age of train travel, was the Inter City logo and it is great to see that it is making a bit of comeback on a T Shirt or two.

Leading the trend is Renaissance Man, and quite possibly serious train spotter, Damon Albarn who was seen wearing one in the summer when riding The Africa Express to Glasgow. They are available from the V&A but it seems that they are short of stock at the moment.

Here is that shirt and a couple of others.

This is as close we could get to the Albarn shirt and guess what, it is out of stock. I can't imagine that the V & A won't be selling them again though. V&A
