August 23 2013, Style In View

Summer is drawing to a close and so we are once again left considering the styles we will be wearing in the coming season. But this morning, it is not my own wardrobe I am contemplating, but that of men everywhere. For amidst all the hoohah of LC:M, colour blocking and berets as the hat of the season, one crucial item was left of the agenda, potentially leaving men everywhere hopelessly gauche, and it was up to one brave young man to single-handedly set rights to right and put …read more

January 15 2013, The Totality

Fashion can be a wily mistress. Obviously.  You, of course, already know that, for you are clearly au fait with — or at least have a wary respect and a passing knowledge of — the latest trends, otherwise why else would you have wandered onto this page? Though perhaps you too find yourself ever so slightly confused, bewildered and scared in light of 2013’s upcoming trends; don’t worry, you’re not alone. Let me take your arm and guide you through the absolute not-on-your-nelly …read more
