Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Light

You should all be grateful. I was this close to typing ‘Converse starts boxing clever’ in that headline. It’s hard to talk about these Converses without thinking about boxing as the reduction of the sole makes them look more suited for 12 rounds in the ring.

As far as gold trainers go these are ok, but they don’t look better than the other pair of gold Converses we posted a while back. If you like the boxing-style ones better, they’ll be available from next week.

Dries Van Noten pink and red boxing shorts

dries van noten boxer boxing shorts.jpgPink and red is one of my favourite colour combinations, it’s perhaps not the most classically stylish colour combination but the pairing of masculine red and feminine pink makes for a satisfying clash.

Now we come onto the fact that the item in question is a pair of Dries Van Noten silky boxing shorts (£205) and it becomes a little harder to wear. We’ve already written about pyjamas as outerwear so this could conceivably be the next step but to be perfectly honest I at a bit of a loss as to how you’d wear them… Any ideas?

John Lawrence Sullivan S/S08

By admin on May 6th, 2008


John Lawrence Sullivan is the creation of Japanese designer Arashi Yanagawa. After spending 4 years as a professional boxer, Yanagawa started John Lawrence Sullivan – the name of the first bare knuckle heavyweight champion of the world. A self taught designer, his influences range from boxing to aviation.

The spring/summer range focuses more on his aviation influences, featuring airplane seatbelts as belts and braces. The boxing influence comes out in the short shorts, which are cut like boxers shorts. While the entire collection is a strong one, the standout pieces are the suits. The sharp tailoring and slim but not too slim fit makes them the most wearable pieces out of the whole collection. Some of his collection is available at Famous Friend boutique.
