London has a definite lack of men only boutiques in comparison to, say, New York, so a few mixed places are bound to creep in. Nevertheless what Goodhood has on offer for the boys is, well, good. Nestled on a sidestreet off Hoxton Square Goodhood has a very urban vibe. Streetwear and city essentials are the mainstay. Graphics are strong – not surprisingly seeing as co-owner Kyle Stewart is a graphic designer (check last week’s TimeOut for a Valentine themed piece on Kyle and partner Jo Sindle). Stand out pieces on my visit were newly arrived nautical striped tops by Wood Wood in cotton jersey and fantastic hunting themed shirts and jackets by Unrivaled.

In September we told you about the multitude of special edition and collaborated Converse that were hitting shop shelves this A/W, here’s a quick update on my pick of the lot. The Wood Wood All Star, made from mono purple suede and brandishing Wood Wood logo on the tongue is now set for release state side tomorrow from DQM. This release was originally slated for October but better late than never I say! Hopefully this will be made available in the UK soon also so If I see one, you’ll be the first to know.

Hey colleague Will, you want better looking, more identifiable luggage? What about this big canvas bag from Wood Wood? It’s distinctive, it’s roomy and it’s the last word in hip.
Wood Wood are the Danish label with the zany prints. They do a great job of being wholesome and a bit street at the same time.
They even have a cap in the same pattern should you want to co-ordinate a look. I wouldn’t recommend it though. As Heidi Klum once said in her nails-on-chalkboard voice on Project Runway “I don’t like so much this matchy-matchy”.
