It felt like the most extravagant garment I’d ever bought at the time at a score short of £100 (and even more so when it actually arrived, stained and moth-eaten as it was). But £60,000 for a t-shirt? That’s just madness. But that’s almost what …

Laura Coats & Jackets Leave a Comment

I absolutely love this winter jacket. Made using dense Pendleton virgin wool, the material blocks icy chills while its “deconstructed” style means it layers well and is still lightweight enough for running around the city. The piece is a part of the “Triple Black” collaboration between Pendleton and Nike’s outdoor division ACG. The jacket has a really modern feel and …

The Nike Mad Jibe is the Frankenstein’s monster of the Nike collection, part boat shoe and part Dunk- oddly it works. Soon to be available in the best Nike colourway, grey and neon yellow, though if neon is a bit garish for you then it’s easy enough to replace the laces and *bam* you’ve got a deck shoe with the comfort of a Dunk.
