Monsoon grandad shirt

I love grandad shirts – they’re just so "Summer Festival". They’re comfy and they keep you cool.

This simple grandad shirt from Monsoon (£55) is a g...More

Lyle & Scott v-neck

No longer the preserve of old men slogging through 18 holes wearing horrendous plus-fours, Lyle & Scott have been adopted as one the choicest labels of the indie set.

Beverage of the week: Innis and Gunn

Since the advent of the "lad" all those years ago, beer has really only meant one thing to men – lager. So there’s always been Guinness on the radar but for a while that was the only alternative we’ve had in a market saturated with over-aerated pints-of-piss.
