More mortgage crippling leather jackets

While Purple jackets may immediately make
you think of booking tickets to a Prince show, they can be incredibly subtle. This
Robert
Geller purple leather jacket
is a great example of this.

Being the shade of purple that doesn’t yell
about its purple status, it’s perfect for those wishing to take baby steps onto
the new male trend – which is suspiciously just like an old female trend. Are
designers getting lazy? Next they’ll be trying to sell sheer to men. The $1275 price tag is a little steep, but it is Robert Geller. If you’ve got the cash, it’s available from Blackbird.

Ralph Lauren polo shirts – They’re not just for Chavs anymore

By admin on February 8th, 2008

The thing about brands is that different
people have different relationships with them.  For people like the fabulous Henry Conway,
Ralph Lauren polo shirts might conjure up images of days out at Ascot, Croquet
and Daddy embezzling money from the government (Ba-doom-chish!). I just think
of Chavs, or as they were called back in my day, Essex boys. Without giving you
my life story – I’m saving that for another post – when I was at secondary
school, fake Ralph Lauren polo shirts were all the rage. In those days, you
spotted a fake by looking at the number of legs on the horse of the logo. Fakes
had 3 or less, real ones had 4. This led to a horse-logo-checking habit that’s
stayed with me to this day.

But I digress. It would make a nice change
this summer if men tried to be a little more daring in their colour
combinations. We know a white shirt and stonewash jeans match, but it’s boring
seeing everyone do it. Why not try something different?
