Cheap Monday Scoop Neck T-Shirt.

ThomasHewetson Uncategorized Leave a Comment

The shape of this t-shirt is perfect. I love the over-sized boxy shape of it with the scoop neck. It reminds me of the American Apparel version but with a wider and higher neckline. Synonymous with their fantastic jeans, which are the best value, best fitting and best pretty much everything jeans out there, Cheap Monday’s clothing range is growing …

Being on public transport in the glorious-but-annoyingly-timed-to-coincide-with-the-working-week heat wave is pretty grim.

The Sartorialist featured these two images of a young man wearing a jumpsuit and heels in one, and jeans and patent lace-up in the other. Men in heels has become a slightly more common occurrence, on the streets of London anyway; I’m sure the sight of a man in stilettos would probably raise an eyebrow (and possibly a fist) in …

admin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

As we walked into the On|Off exhibition I had a ‘I want that boat’ Napoleon Dynamite moment looking at Rozalb de Mura’s designs. I especially lusted after a pleated sleeve tunic in a gorgeous shade of grey and on the catwalk the menswear was equally impressive.

Rozalb de Mura
is the name of a fictional baron thought up by the design team which is a brilliantly Martin Margiela touch. Designer Olah Gyarfas has been working in his native Romania for the last two years on the de Mura label.
