For many, watches are the best way for men to wear jewellery. Definitely a much better way than a bracelet, chain or pendant, signet ring or leather wristband. However, choosing a nice watch is not the easiest of tasks. The range of products available is very wide, and this is a purchase that must be… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
Latest in the “you can sometimes get nice surprises from big brands” series, I went to have a look in Devred for the first time in…ages! And I found this little leather jacket: -Hey, this jacket’s nice! Let’s take a closer look.

I broke my umbrella! It was mad: the fabric broke from the stem and I found myself holding just the handle. At this point, the top of the umbrella was 3 metres in the air, spinning like a frisbee. -Gogo gadget brolly! People for 10 metres around ran in panic.

Ok, ok, I’ve had them for about 2 and a half years, and I’ve not exactly… Read moreno validationand3 comments for this article.
Here are 2 new brands that I haven’t mentioned for a long time: Pull-in and Stereo Panda. Here’s some news concerning both of them: they’re launching a co-branded line of underwear.

It’s been a while since I spoke about jewellery (or galleries or scullduggery… hmm…), then I discovered the Ikken collection. Loving their work!
