My-Wardrobe recently launched their men’s section, joining the ranks of online retailers making tracks in menswear. We had a chat with one half of their buying team, Lee Douros, about the launch.

We’re really happy with all of the labels that have come on board for the SS09 season – they were all our top picks! One of must-haves are APC, the masters of Parisian understated cool, whose clothes will be sticking around in your wardrobe for seasons to come. On the high-end side, no-one can top Vivienne Westwood for pieces with an interesting quirk, like shirts with a high, three button collar or “drunk” trenchcoats (pictured, left) that have an undulating, twisted front.

Dear memoirs: do you know your belt size? I bet you don’t

Dear memoirs, walking through the office last Friday between avoiding work down in the samples cage and avoiding work at my desk I was beckoned over by a young female buyer “What size waist are you?” odd I thought, interesting opening to any conversation. I mused for perhaps for only a second and responded “About a 30″ she looked oddly satisfied then slapped a belt into my hand a commanded me to put it on, not to upset the young Miss I obliged and began to remove my own belt, her eyes transfixed on my waist line. I thought in any other situation and I could be labelled quite the Cad, but this, was of course, only business. With the belt on and fitting perfectly the young lady asked me what size belt I usually take, “Ermm I’m not really sure, probably a Medium” she looked at me like I was a fool, and I was because the belt I was wearing was a Small, a Medium would have dwarfed me. I removed the belt and retreated to my desk feeling humbled.

True story that. My point is do you really know what size belt you take? It’s hard to tell and it’s tough for you to measure accurately the length of your current belt without knowing how to correctly measure a belt- step in Atsui and their super useful guide to belt measuring.

Check it out and never be made a fool of like I was.
