This summer’s hottest plimsolls and canvas shoes

Ever wondered why the plimsoll is called that? According to Nicholette Jones’ book The Plimsoll Sensation in the 1870s it got the name because the coloured horizontal band joining the upper to the sole resembled the Plimsoll line on a ship’s hull. So just like the Plimsoll line on a ship, if water got above the line of the rubber …

Kiss & Makeup‘s Zara writes…

Lacoste are launching a new scent which challenges men to be, uh, Challenge(d). The idea is that the scent will capture the essence of today’s young metrosexual, and be light enough to wear daily. Considering the tagline is ‘Never resist the call of the game’. it seems pretty relevant for Wimbledon, and I can imagine Henman spritzing on a little in between getting trounced trying his hardest.

Lacoste Ibiza Block

These puppies are gorgeous. Great colour combination, great design, great shape. They’re amazing. They have a really authentic eighties look to them – something about grey mixed with colour is very evocative of the era. Also the leather (or could it be leatherette? Do I dare dream?) padding on the uppers is just divine. You can get hold of them …
