Blue Suede Shoes are back; ASOS, Clarks Originals, John Rocha and more

By Stefano on December 31st, 2012

Good news for Elvis, it appears that blue suede shoes (and leather ones too) are enjoying a bit of a mini revival. I saw that Clarks had added navy to its range of classics this year and they are not alone. You can also buy blue suede and leather brogues and loafers too.

Of course you have to be a little careful about what you wear them with – especially if the shoes are more navy than blue. They work well with jeans, chinos and grey suit trousers, but black trousers are obviously a no.

Here is a selection that caught our eye.

John Rocha Blue Brogues £70

These are very classy. Just reduced, and available in Debenhams, they are classic in every way apart from the navy finish. Debenhams

Style Safari: John Rocha’s Debenhams sale – Blue Brogues

By Stefano on December 29th, 2012

If you fancy a quick fix of some of our favourite heritage clothes brands you would do well to pop into your local Debenhams, The store has Ben Sherman, Duffer, Levi’s Fred Perry and more and at the moment much of it at knock down sale prices.

The store also has a big collection of John Rocha clothing, some of which we love and some which we aren’t keen on at all. There’s a pretty decent selection of lambswool and mixed fibre jumpers which sell for between £20 and £40, but it is the footwear section that impressed us most and in particular the range of Brogues.

Pick of the bunch is this lovely navy pair which once retailed for £90 and now costs you £70. It is a very cool twist on a classic style. they are available in brown too if you are looking for something a little more conventional.

C.Vox – the sound system in a £65 jacket hits the High Street

By Stefano on November 26th, 2012

Intelligent clothing, or wearable gadgets are big news at the moment and only likely to become mainstream next year. we especially like these Bluetooth gloves - brilliant idea.

Now smart clothing is hitting the High Street courtesy of Debenhams (?!) which has just unveiled the C.VOX range which are outwerwear that include built in headphones, speakers and control system that allows wearers to skip, pause, play music as well as answer and hang up calls. The range goes on sale at Debenhams today (18 November 2012), just in time for Christmas.

And, in case you were wondering in what Debenhams claims is a world first the coat is designed by C.VOX (Communiqué Vox) and incorporates a stylish jacket with a top of the range sound system and hands free set, that is completely machine washable.

We kind of like the jacket too which is barbour-esque and padded with no real collar. Prices start at £65 for men and £33 for kids. The jacket in the picture is £95.

Paul Baldwin, Head of Menswear Buying says; “We are thrilled to be offering such an innovative product to our customers. The range incorporates fashion, technology and practicality at a competitive price.”

Features include; a connector point in the pocket which is compatible with all mobile phones and MP3 players and allows the wearer to connect and conceal the devise, a built in washable speaker and a microphone and control system on the sleeve that allows the wearer to skip, pause and play music as well as answer and hang up calls. The earphones are wired through the jacket and concealed in the collar.

The C.VOX range for men and kids includes jackets, gilets and hooded sweatshirts which all incorporate the groundbreaking technology.

So would you buy one?

Stripe scarves are starting to become so ubiquitous that they’re joining Taz socks and Homer Simpson ties in the naffness leagues, not any old stripe scarf though, it’s the fine stripe stretchy knit scarf with usually comes in a burgundy melange of colours and has fringing on the ends.

Originated by Paul Smith who tried to update the wool school scarf (which is still a glorious accessory despite the association) and then copied by every high street retailer going, this is the one item that everyone seemed to get for Christmas if they didn’t already own it. Pick a tube carriage at random and you can bet at least ten men have got one of these scarves round their neck. No more please!

Stick around to see our alternatives to the stripy scarf tomorrow and jump through to find out who the culprits are. Are you a proud owner of a stripy scarf and can’t see what the fuss is about? Let me know on our Facebook Blog page.

England Goalie David James strips off for Father’s Day and Everyman Male Cancer Campaign

By admin on June 6th, 2008

david-james-debenhams.gifI got really excited when I saw this press release as I thought it was about David Jason stripping off for charity. Veering between excited and repulsed I was mostly relieved when I saw it was actually England goalie David James.

James is promoting a campaign in conjunction with Debenhams who are donating money to the Everyman Male Campaign for every item of menswear purchased in the run-up to Father’s Day.

They are hoping raise at least £100,000 for research into prostate and testicular cancer. Portsmouth star James said: “Around 37,000 men are diagnosed with male cancer every year – almost twice the amount of men that fill our great football stadium.” If you haven’t bought socks or ties for your dad yet (seriously, what else is there?!) then head to Debenhams and make your purchase count.
