I’ve long considered Ivy – or at least mid-century American gear – to be the focal point of my look in some way or another. Fortunately that’s a pretty broad brush stroke and means that I can get away with sticking all

82 Portraits and 1 Still life; David Hockney at the RA

We’re spoilt by David Hockney when it comes to portrait work. His moving studies of the relationships between his friends and family in the 1970s and his stylistically experimental and expressive 1980s portrait work seem to have created a critical

In Defence and Praise of; The Uniqlo Oxford

I decided to go back to university in September (hence the dead blog), and, naturally, this means I’m absolutely skint. This is a difficult position to be in for those of us addicted to clothes. Even more difficult when even

OCBD; Other Cloth Button-Down

It’s astonishing, the ease with which a decent ivy league styled shirt can be had. I once imagined I’d eventually have to try out every tailor this side of the river to get a decent copy of a vintage Sero Purist,

Clarks Desert Boot 65; Made in England, but…

We all know it’s so much better when stuff is the same as it used to be; Shuron specs, Novesta sneaks, Peter Storm x Size? cagoules, even the USA-made Brooks Brothers shirts pass muster. So I suppose it’s a great
