Valentine’s Day – the stuff he actually wants. Gadgets, clothes and more

By Stefano on February 6th, 2013

For her – It is Valentine’s Day in less than a week and your bloke is, as we speak, preparing an amazing day which involves chocolates, flowers, a candlelit meal and chapter seven of Fifty Shades of Grey.

The last time this level of planning went into anything they called it D-Day.  So shouldn’t you show him how much you love him? Forget the crap socks and that soppy card you were thinking about and get him what he really wants. Here are few ideas to help.

For him – Oops, you better get a move on, garage flowers won’t cut it again this year. Might be worth sticking this list in front of her – if you have been a good boy that is.

How to wear a scarf – and ten you’d look great in

By Stefano on November 20th, 2012

In Winter, at least, the obvious purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm, but sartorially speaking a scarf has a multitude of uses from adding a splash of colour to an otherwise slightly dull suit through to adding a degree of formality to casual clothes.

Personally I am a die-hard stripey or houndstooth scar wearer. They can look superb when contrasted with plain knitwear – like a decent Merino or Cashmere jumper. You can buy stripeys everywhere from high street stores to the real thing – college scarves which these days are more likely to be found in vintage stores than charity shops.

A chunky scarf adds texture to your outfit, as does a lively pattern. A scarf can also be a block of colour which livens up your outfit (take note suit wearers!), be aware of the colour of your coat because generally speaking, the brighter the colour the worse it looks with black. Think of fuchsia or neon yellow with black; they could both look tacky unless done well. Choose a shade which is more unexpected think pumpkin, cobalt blue or forest green. Pick the right colour and it’ll liven up your winter complexion too!

Using your scarf as the finishing touch to a certain outfit works really well, think of Terry Thomas‘ silk scarves, they add a dose of panache to his look. Tootal has been kitting out well-heeled gentlemen in scarves for decades so they are a good place to start. If you have a bit more budget then Drake’s is the brand for silk scarves.

Don’t forget Savile Rogue too. It has been making Cahsmere footy type scarves for a while now and they are very classy – think Roberto Manicini more than Neil Warnock…

Anyhow here are a few for you to look at

Brandish Christmas List #2 Savile Rogue Cashmere Football Scarves

By Stefano on November 12th, 2012

I have always found it surprising that football clubs haven’t cottoned on to the fact that not all of their fans want to be seen wearing cheap and rather nasty clothes and accessories. There’s clearly a whole group of fans who want to show their colours but wouldn’t be seen dead sporting the usual branded clobber that their team churns out.

The brilliantly named Savile Rogue think so too. For over five years now they have been offering classic football scarves in very fetching, and rather luxurious cashmere. As it states on their website there are fewer worst things in life than scratchy nylon scarves! For obvious reasons the scarves aren’t sporting the club’s crests, but given the state of some clubs – this one springs to mind - this is no bad thing.

Serious fashion heads should note that the cashmere comes from goats in Mongolia and is then shipped to a mill in Scotland.

The company has scarves for most of the Premiership clubs in both home and away colours with prices starting at £43.95

Just about to arrive are leather gloves in lamb leather, insulated fleece-lining and 100% cashmere wool cuffs. And you read that right, you can operate your iPhone to check up on your rivals scores without having to take them off. They will retail for around £64.95.
