John White is a heritage British brand that has been around for the best part of a century. According to its website it supplied boots to the army in WW2 and was the first British shoe company to ship its wares to New York’s Macy’s Department store. Now it is hoping to reinvent itself just a little by taking its …
I doubt I need to give any background to the ‘Presidential Major Moment’ currently hitting headlines around the world. Looking through pictures of President Obama’s (how unbelievably cool is that?!) inauguration, I couldn’t help but let my mind wonder onto more sartorial matters.
When it comes to jeans I always believe less is more, which is why I have never taken to Diesel jeans or even most Evisu but Levis, for me, Levis seem to get it right almost every time. However for the Levis Engineered Jeans I feel like they really dropped the ball. In theory I love the idea of an homage to the quirk in a twill that meant that early pairs of Levis would twist to the left but the finished product seemed a little cheap. Luckily for Levis few people shared my lack of enthusiasm and the Levis Engineered were an immediate success, 10 years on and the first purpose twisted pair of jeans is being re-released in a super cool collectors box. The special edition comes in the original three cuts: the Standard, the Giant and the Loose Culottes for girls and is slated for release in Spring/Summer 09, however the first 100 pairs will be available from Oki-Ni from early December.
Cardigans are ten a penny on the high street, if you want to keep your look interesting a shawl collar is a subtle detail which will add a little curiosity to your outfit.
If you’re going to go for this season’s lumberjack trend you may as well jump right in and go for Topshop’s flannel plaid jacket (£60).
My bad! I may have the wrong film but I doubt such a slip-up would result in a look that miserable from Robert DeNiro? Might it be that he’s fed up with films? Maybe he (okay, clearly he) couldn’t be bothered to make the effort to dress up but my bet is that it’s standing next to Al Pacino who, as well as being an arguably equal competitor on the greatest actor front, actually look pretty good!

Combining manly checks with a feminine pink tuxedo ruffle is obviously a recipe for success for Cosmic Wonder whose Wood shirt is sold out in every size but large.
Pink and red is one of my favourite colour combinations, it’s perhaps not the most classically stylish colour combination but the pairing of masculine red and feminine pink makes for a satisfying clash.
It’s easy to assume that socks shopping will be easy. You assume that stores will have socks with designs and plain socks, all in a variety of colours and made from good quality cotton that won’t get a hole in a couple of weeks. Sadly this isn’t the case. When this happens you have to branch out.
When word first spread of Hedi Slimane working on a Diesel red campaign, it originally looked like Diesel had pulled off the fashion scoop of the century. The idea of Diesel, the brand more associated with premiership footballers than fashion icons, working with Hedi Slimane was too weird to be true. Apparently Hedi thought so too, putting out a statement saying that he had “no interest at all in Renzo Rosso’s group, let alone Diesel”. Ouch. He could have just denied it.
Uniqlo call this cardigan red, I call it coral but that’s because I’m a fashion writer and I love mentioning that it’s one of the hottest colours this season.
While we’re waiting to crack out the summer garms one of the best ways to look a bit less wintry is to add a bit of colour to your outfit.
Red’s a bit of an unusual choice for a watch but a subtle flash of colour doesn’t go unnoticed and the Cool Hand watch is a classy timepiece.
Ever tried saying I love you with trainers?
No? Well now you can with these Valentine’s day Air force
ones ($79.99). Nike are clearly determined to be ahead of the Valentines
curve and have started selling what are basically red AF1’s since the start of
I’m not such a fan of flip flops, but these Burton ones
are a great buy for the park or to pop in your suitcase.
