Annie Liebovitz snaps Gorbachev for latest Louis Vuitton campaign

When I first heard about this story I thought it was a joke; but it seems the joke’s on me because yes, Mikhail Gorbachev is modelling for Louis Vuitton. Obviously modelling is a bit of an exaggeration but there he is, looking tense in the back of a car with the all-important bag nestling at his side. Annie Liebovitz is …

Threadless T-Shirts

Forgive the grainy image, but I didn’t design the internet. Anyway, enough of my gripes, believe me when I tell you that this t-shirt (pictured left) is a damned handsome item… and a rare thing… it’s funny without trying to be too brash. It’s not available yet as it’s featured on Threadless (which lets you vote on tees that you …

Top five: hats

Superdry polo

Superdry have been around for quite a while now and while they attained some notoriety amongst fashion plebs (they make the "Osaka" tees you sometimes see banging about) they’ve not really taken off as I would have expected. I’d love this to change, simply because they make some really decent clothing, especially this Chest Stripe Polo (£34.99). This polo has …

Merkur Futur Razor

When it come’s to shaving we, as men, should have a full facial care and repair routine. Ideally we’d steam our stubble first, slap on a good lather with a badger-hair brush, then shave with a cuthroat razor. After, we’d cleanse, apply an expensive balm and continue to moisturise throughout the day. Yeah right. Whilst I’m all for an extensive …

Oversized plastic sunglasses

Not since the 60s and 70s have men had the balls to sport a fine pair of oversized sunglasses. Well, you should make a change to that. Aviators are not cool – Fact.

As you can tell there were quite a few stylish men in Brighton for the Great Escape. Jack is student and does a great job of showing Johnny Borrell how to wear white jeans.
