Amplified tee

Admit it, ever since you got given a pack of those "rub on" tattoos, you’ve wanted to get your whole body inked in flaming skulls, swords with snakes wrapped around them and evil, naked she-devils. You were going to buy a big motorbike too, and stay up until four 4am every morning. But then you […]...More


Levi’s 1947 check shirts

I can’t get enough of big-checks – wearing small checks always reminds me of the curtains my mum had in her kitchen. Or school-girl Summer-dresses, but that’s another story. "Mother, I’m thirteen now and I can wear what I want! Get that dress away from me!" Anyway, this Levi’s check shirt (£37.50) is "s...More

Vilebrequin or just vile?

Vilebrequin created boxer-short style beach wear back in 1970, giving rise to pretty much what every guy wears down on the promenade today. Prior to Monsieur Vilebrequin’s vision, inspired by a tablecloth no-less, men wore short shorts. Very short shorts. Or Speedos.  Neither were a good look. Since then, Vilebrequin has continued to chu...More


Paul Smith t-shirt

I found this Paul Smith tee (£45) while perusing their website. Big, thick stripes and colourful gingham prints seem to be the in thing at the moment, so I was pleased when I came across this simple, striped tee. I also like the cut on the arms – I much prefer a t-shirt when the […]...More

Next cargo shorts

I generally loathe Next. Their collection is the epitome of the blandness that pervades men’s high street fashion these days and their casual wear is made to such general specifications that they end up fitting everyone and no-one. Seems a little strong, doesn’t it? Well, there are some things that Next do well. Like cheap […]...More
