John White’s rainbow of classy Suede Brogues

By Stefano on February 7th, 2013


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 classic designs and attention to detail and adding a dollop of twenty first century innovation and styling.

And that’s exactly what you get with these Brogues. Named the Langham Suede they are available in four striking colours – Navy, Brown and a very unusual Red and Olive Green.

They will be on sale soon – John White sells through a number of stores including John Lewis as well as their own website. Yours for £150.

They also have some lovely Moccasins in a variety of colours too.

Presidential Major Moment = Red Tie, Obama follows suit

By Will Reid on January 21st, 2009

barack obama inauguration red tie suit.jpg

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. It struck me that while the new First Lady was rocking a very diplomatic Isabel Toledo (Cuban-born, American-based designer) outfit, Barack looked rather bland in his suit and red tie. But it appears that this outfit is a rather well-worn fashion formula…

Levis Red Engineered 10 year re-release

By Jonathan Smith on November 20th, 2008


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 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.

Topman’s double breasted shawl collar cardigan

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.

Topman‘s red double breasted knit (£40) is a retro style which looks contemporary and smart teamed with office trousers and lace ups. Avoid wearing it with cord trousers, otherwise you’re in danger of straying into Val Doonican territory, and what with us being so close to Christmas that is a scary domain to slip into. Neat indigo denim and slim-cut pressed trousers will get the best out of this cosy cardigan.

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).

It’s lined in faux sheep which means it’ll be wonderfully cosy for the winter and will add bulk to your silhouette in a satisfying way, overly skinny is out now dontcha know? You could play it safe and team it with jeans but why not go for something different and wear the jacket with cuffed chinos and geeky Doc Marten style lace up shoes. Add some contrasting socks and it’ll set you apart from the swathes of men in check.

Why So Serious DeNiro?- Oops, Wrong Film…

By Will Reid on September 11th, 2008

deniropacino2.jpgMy 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 looks pretty good!

Read on for pictures including 50 Cent as well as info about this cult-to-be film.

Cosmic Wonder tuxedo check shirt

cosmic wonder check shirt tuxedo.jpg
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.
If you fit a large then you’re doubly in luck as the shirt is reduced from £235 to £117.50 at b Store. Team it with the simplest grey trousers and cardigan for a quirky work outfit or with jeans for a Brokeback Mountain pastiche.

Dries Van Noten pink and red boxing shorts

By admin on June 4th, 2008

dries van noten boxer boxing shorts.jpgPink 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.

Now we come onto the fact that the item in question is a pair of Dries Van Noten silky boxing shorts (£205) and it becomes a little harder to wear. We’ve already written about pyjamas as outerwear so this could conceivably be the next step but to be perfectly honest I at a bit of a loss as to how you’d wear them… Any ideas?


It’s time to branch out with these Marks and Spencers socks

By admin on June 3rd, 2008

colourful socks.jpgIt’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.

Although I would never usually go there, M&S have some great colourful socks that are well made and downright cheap. This assorted pack of socks cost £10 and come in sky and navy blue, red and pink.


Diesel not working with Hedi Slimane

By admin on May 9th, 2008

hedi.jpgWhen 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 cotton cashmere cardigan

By admin on May 1st, 2008

uniqlo red coral cardigan.jpgUniqlo 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.

Whatever the colour Uniqlo have reduced it to £9.99 which is an absolute bargain. I’ve got this cardigan in grey and I’ve worn it to death, picking it up off my chair even when a cursory sniff revealed more than a soupçon of eau de tramp. That’s how much I love Uniqlo cardigans.


Red marl cardigan from Burton

By admin on April 18th, 2008

burton red marl cardigan.JPGWhile 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.

This cardigan from Burton is an unsual kind of tomatoey red because of the marl, but I like it. If I was writing on Catwalk Queen I might be tempted to say something like ‘it’s coral, this season’s new colour and is bang on trend’. But I wont. It’s only £25 and will make a great addition to your wardrobe and add a bit of a kick to any outfit.

Luke 1977 ‘Cool Hand’ red dial watch

By admin on March 25th, 2008

luke 1977 watch red dial.jpgRed’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.

It’ll give a sober suit or simple outfit of v-neck jumper and jeans a bit of pep and the large face is an unusual but attractive quirk. The black finish steel bracelet and domed red dial carry on the individual theme and stylish good looks.

If red’s not your thing the watch also comes in plain black, white or tan all of which are available from Luke 1977 for £220.


Valentine’s day Air Force Ones

By admin on January 11th, 2008


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

Also, seeing as these are women’s trainers,
it’s not made entirely clear whether you’re supposed to buy her a pair (she may
not even like AF1′s) or you’re supposed to wear them yourself as a symbol of
your undying love for her and Nike. Seeing as they run up to size 11, I’d say
the latter.


Red Burton flip flops

By ShinyMedia on May 15th, 2007

RedflipsI’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. The rich red colour makes them look a lot more expensive than the £6 they will set you back and you can safely team them with indigo jeans without looking like a scruffbag. Team them with Burton’s grey linen shorts  for a more edgy (and ventilation friendly!) look.
