Yay or Nay: The Return of THAT Print?

By Will Reid on January 19th, 2009

burberry.jpgThe Burberry Prorsum A/W 2009 show has been going down a storm on the Internet with buyers and fashion critics air-kissing in delighted agreement as they plan their wardrobes for seasons to come (guilty as charged.) Apart from the amazing padded jackets and sharp tailoring, one of the things that has most caught my attention is the subtle return of the infamous check print. The beige tartan-esque print has, in recent years, become a taboo of the fashion industry but designer Christopher Bailey appears to have decided that the time has come for a major return.

What do you think- are you ready to show-off the check print? Vote in our poll after the jump!

Sale pick: J. Lindeberg jeans

By admin on July 1st, 2008

jljeans.jpgNow that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.

Something you should know is that J.Lindeberg run their clothing in indie sizes (i.e a size smaller than they are). So although these are labelled as straight leg, they fit like slim jeans.

Ralph Lauren polo shirts – They’re not just for Chavs anymore

By admin on February 8th, 2008

The thing about brands is that different
people have different relationships with them.  For people like the fabulous Henry Conway,
Ralph Lauren polo shirts might conjure up images of days out at Ascot, Croquet
and Daddy embezzling money from the government (Ba-doom-chish!). I just think
of Chavs, or as they were called back in my day, Essex boys. Without giving you
my life story – I’m saving that for another post – when I was at secondary
school, fake Ralph Lauren polo shirts were all the rage. In those days, you
spotted a fake by looking at the number of legs on the horse of the logo. Fakes
had 3 or less, real ones had 4. This led to a horse-logo-checking habit that’s
stayed with me to this day.

But I digress. It would make a nice change
this summer if men tried to be a little more daring in their colour
combinations. We know a white shirt and stonewash jeans match, but it’s boring
seeing everyone do it. Why not try something different?
