Portable BBQs

Barbecues: You’ve got two choices when you want to incinerate meat in the comfort of your own garden. Either purchase one from your local Homebase, or steal a load of bricks from the building site down the road and build one to your own spec. But what do you do when you and a bunch […]...More


Swenkas: bringing dandy back

Ever heard of swanking? Well if you’re a dapper black man from South Africa you might leave your family on a Saturday night and head off to a fashion show with other Swenkas where your attire will be judged and if you’re lucky you might win a prize. Prizes range from blackets, watches and cows […]...More


Penfield Tee

I’ll admit that I have a penchant for t-shirts with huge logos and mad prints – the more convoluted and archaic the design, the better – Just see my Terratag tee review. However, it looks like in my old age I’m becoming a bit more conservative. I love this smart Penfield t-shirt (£19.99) in charcoal […]...More


Custom Poker Chips

With the rich and famous having recently made playing poker cool again, impressionable, but poor people across the land have suddenly gained an addiction and lost a load of money. Yay for them. Personally, while I like a good game of hold’em, I’ve never seen the excitement in betting away a wad of money. So […]...More


Penguin checked shirt

If grandad retro is your thing then you will probably already be familiar with Penguin clothing, and this madras check shirt ($69) is perfect for the ageing golfer look. Team it with slip on Vans, check Farah slacks and a cap, but if you want something more subtle I’d say pick a slim pair of […]...More


Paul Smith Pinhole Camera

Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 17th folks!) so it seems like a perfect opportunity to spoil yer old pa, or better still, if you’re a parent yourself, to get yourself a little present. Often, gifts on Father’s Day revolve around some new socks or some crappy tankard with some ale… well why […]...More


Oki-Ni Diadora Trainers

Sebastian Coe may not be a style icon… and most recently recalled as the man who got pranked by Chris Morris and a Tory MP… but back in the mid 80s, Seb was breaking world records with his running prowess and endorsing trainers like these Diadora Seb Impact. These bad boy trainers are a great […]...More


Tarantula Super Powerful Water Gun

Let’s face it fellas, Summer really is fantastic. It’s a season where women suddenly seem to come out of hibernation and shed their Winter skins, we get to drink copious amounts of beer in the sun and we’re actually encouraged to start huge fires in order to roast great slabs of meat for our friends […]...More


Pyramid studded Topman belt

Maybe it’s thanks to emo but fetish influences made a big appearance on the catwalk. This doesn’t mean you have go down the rubber gimp suit route (although if that’s what you want that’s fine too!) but a leather jacket, shiny fabrics and studs are all a subtle nod to the trend. Topman’s narrow belt […]...More


Lee check shirt from ASOS

I’ve got a feeling that gingham might be becoming the new stripes, but maybe it’s just indigestion. Either way gingham, the check most associated with girl’s summer uniforms, gives a quirky twist to menswear. For just £14 you can get your hands on a Lee check shirt which will give you a fresh look for […]...More


Vans Era Piped Trainer

For some reason, when the sun comes out, people start wearing white. Maybe the brilliant shine makes you get noticed? I wouldn’t really know… I’m a bloke and just like wearing cool things. Their is a point to all this because I’m showing you something that is white and cool. These Vans are catchily titled […]...More

Steak Button Thermometers

Proper chefs have a pretty good idea of how long to cook their steaks. That’s because they’re chefs. However, for those of you, who are like me, can let things go a bit awry in the kitchen, things can get tricky when you’ve got someone asking for a rare steak. Help is at hand! These […]...More


New Balance 1500s

I’ve always loved New Balance sneaks – They’re built to last and completely unassuming, looking just as good with track pants as they do with a smart pair of jeans. These 1500s (£100) come in four different colour schemes, but I’m mad for the green and ecru combo shown here in nubuck and synthetics. As […]...More


Tenderloin Jacket

Heard of Tenderloin? Non? Don’t worry, not many people have, but it won’t be long before you see every fashionista worth their trendy salt bearing something with the distinct "K-7" logo. Already a hit in their native Japan, the UK has yet to have been truly graced with the the delights of the Tenderloin, mainly […]...More

Onitsuka Tiger trainers

I borrowed Kim from Catwalk Queen to review some Onitsuka Tiger trainers with me. They’re one of the few casual shoe brands doing anything interesting at the moment, as evidenced by their cool punched leather hi-tops. The other two shoes are variations on the classic Mexico 66 style and make perfect all-rounders....More
