Brandish says don’t: Chinese symbol ring

Men’s jewellery can be tricky, it’s nice to adorn yourself but when faced with a Chinese symbol ring always say no. Fair enough Burton have got a dodgy reputation, but some of their stuff is very nice and we’ve featured it on Brandish a fair few times. So why the Feng Shui circa 1997 ring? […]...More

Good grooming: Shaving

"Shaving? I don’t need no shaving lesson! My dad taught me how with the blunt side of a Bic and a load of imperial lather when I was eight years old! It shows. Go and look in the mirror. You probably haven’t shaved in at least a couple of days. If you have shaved within […]...More


Aldo Valerio shoes

I’m a complete bum – I don’t feel more comfortable than when I’m sitting about in a pair of raggy shorts and a nicely worn in tee. But there is the odd occasion when I like to wash behind my ears, spray on a bit of cologne and dress acceptably for social interaction. This is […]...More


Topman bandana

Probably more catered to the nu-rave set, I still can’t help but like this Topman bandana (£4). It’s less the design and more to do with the fact that it reminds me of Dexys Midnight Runners, one of my favourite bands when I was a kid. I also reckon the New Wave-Nu Rave-Hobo look is […]...More

Vans are essentially a sports shoe, designed to take the rough and tumble associated with aggressive skating. That fact doesn’t stop them looking darn good though. Just check out these Vans TNT II. They’ve got the classic Van shape but have apparently been "upgraded" with a new type of sole that means they’ll stand up [&...More

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 St...More


Eye hurting shirt from Topman

Checked shirts come back into their own every Summer. This year, it seems the smaller the check, the better, although there’s still a place for country bumpkin-style picnic tablecloth checks. Usually, you’ll get two or three colours in a shirt, which is fine. But not here. It seems Topman have included the whole spectrum to […]...More
