Don’t sweat like the rest. Rock a vest!

Being on public transport in the glorious-but-annoyingly-timed-to-coincide-with-the-working-week heat wave is pretty grim. Buses, trains and especially the Tube are hotter than Bin Laden’s pager number, if you were naked you would still be wearing to much. Clearly you can’t rock out with your cock out on public transport, however you can compromise with Granddad’s favourite, a vest.

Common Projects are the latest brand to fulfil my current fetish for plain trainers. We’ve featured a pair of their trainers before, but it’s only fair to give the whole brand the once over. Common Projects is the brainchild of Prathan Poopat, former art director for V and Visionaire magazine, and Flavio Girolami, a consultant for several Italian brands.

Dr Martens are back, just have a little faith here

Dr Martens are one of these timeless brands, like Converse, who’s iconic shoes have changed little since they were first conceived, which in both these cases was many a moon before any of us were. DMs fade in and out of obscurity with ease and have for the last few years been bubbling under the surface pulling their profits from the hardcore fans, but I predict a come back. With early 80’s style being so hot right now it takes little imagination to make that jump to skinny acid washed jeans and a pair of Docs, but only time and perhaps our street style posts will tell.

A look closer revealed something much more interesting, are corsets in for men?

Given Material Boy’s Topman Lens collection, you’d assume that every boutique would be snapping at his clothing. It’s an understatement to say that this hasn’t been the case. One of the only places to buy Material Boy is Bespoke Boutique and as luck would have it, they’re having their summer sale. The pick of the bunch is this double breasted jersey jacket.
