Lanvin Neckties and Bowties for Autumn/Winter 2011

Lanvin has giving the necktie an interesting spin in their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection combining silk and wool splits. As you can see above the long end of the necktie is finished in a wool. Similarly, the bowties have a wool application that personally I think sits well with the silk. What do you think? Would you wear these split neckties?

How to do class in the freezing cold… Take one well tailored grey coat, a battered but sturdy pair of boots, slim wool trousers and top it off with a pair of tinted specs.

While the whole Shiny Media team are safely ensconced at home I pity the poor souls who have actually had to drag their carcasses into work.
I wont be leaving the house for anything other than stocking up on Hob Nobs, but if you do have to brave the cold these boots would be perfect for an old-time intrepid explorer look. They’re £240 by Daita Kimura at Farfetch which is pretty pricey, but look like they would last you a lifetime.

Not since the Aguilera/Bratman marriage has the world seen such an unlikely pairing, street fashion brand Stussy has gotten together with Whetherspoons favourite Schott to work on this jacket. Made from cow hide and wool the coat looks… really good… am I the only one who’s genuinely shocked? Pencilled in for release in November, there is no mention of price but at a guess I’m thinking- not cheap.

Burton release Heritage collection

I recently purchased a pair of high-waisted, striped men’s trousers from a charity shop that are from Burton back in the day when it was still called Montague Burton. It was an exciting find and they fit like heaven so when I found out Burton were releasing their Heritage collection my ears pricked up.
First here’s a little history lesson: born Moshe Osinsky, Montague Burton came to England as a refugee from Lithuania and founded the company we now know as Burton.
