Some might criticise for a lack of originality, but talking about hoodies without mentioning BAPE is a bit like talking about hip-hop without mentioning Biggie! Well, let’s not get distracted, let’s get back to the heart of the matter. Founded by Nigo in 1993… Read more

First selection: Wooden watches

le Friday 16 May 2008byJunior the “conker”

As I’m trying to make you understand, watches are not just everyday objects. The watches I will show you today are unusual, in that they use wood in their construction. You will agree that the watches I have chosen do not reflect the tribal trend with its one-size-fits-all ethnic mix that you’re quite frankly better… Read more

All watches bright and beautiful

le Tuesday 06 May 2008byJunior the “conker”

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 more

This basic has once again formed the inspiration for many fashion houses (Dior, Cavalli, Tom Ford…) and designers (Berryl, Porsche Design…). The main… Read more

Men’s umbrellas

le Sunday 23 March 2008byJoe the "tire-remover"

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. In the end, no-one was… Read more
