Silas x London Tradition Duffle Coat

By Laura on November 17th, 2011

The duffle coat truly is a classic winter staple. It’s popularity can be traced back to the British Military for introducing and perfecting the design.

One of the best duffel coats we have seen so far this year has to be the collaboration between Silas and Maria and their British cohorts, London Tradition. Made in England, this shortened, hooded classic features horn toggle fastenings, and a tartan lining.

Over all it is a beautiful, conventional, expertly crafted duffle, that is bound to last you years.
Available in both grey and navy colorways this jacket will set you back £329.

Military inspired backpack From Marc by Marc Jacobs

By Laura on April 11th, 2011

Over the last few weeks, I have noticing a lot of Londoners rocking the backpack. After all it is a great way to carry all your things, whether your off to work or going for an impromptu picnic.
One backpack that has caught my eye in particular is this military inspired bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs. The bag features logo patches and two easily accessible front pockets. While the bag’s design is mostly gray, contrast is provided by the use of off-white towards the base and fastening strap as well as brown for the shoulder straps.

Topman: Get The U-Bahn Look

By Laura on January 17th, 2011

Topman has really upped their game this season, starting with the recent release of the U-Bahn collection. This look sees catwalk trends inspired by Berlin’s edgy underground scene and pays homage to post-punk. Built on tough sculpted shapes, it is all about creating a fresh silhouette littered with antiqued military detail.

Check out the gallery below, where I have chosen a few pieces that best represent this trend.

Grape Non Denim Carrot Jeans

Coloured denim is making a comeback this season, and these jeans are a perfect way to pull off the trend. The subtle colour would look brilliant paired with a plain white tee. Available for £40

Stabo Bivvy Trousers: lets go tenting

By cchapman on July 9th, 2009

Bivvy_Trs.jpgRugged, outdoor clothing is becoming a theme, at least this week. My new favourite site/e-newsletter the fabulously-named Urban Daddy has turned up perhaps the ultimate in outdoor clothing: trousers made from old tents. Military WWII tents to be precise, so as well as protecting you from the elements you’ll be wearing a piece of history.

With a relaxed fit, the trousers are cut long so you can roll them to fit and each pair comes with unique marks, flaws and patched holes as evidence of their authenticity. They also come as shorts! The waxed cagoules are rather gorgeous too, modeled on a real fisherman and all.

Order yours now from Stabo‘s quirky Norfolk-based site.
