Trouser Tuesday: Something a bit different from SEH Kelly


Welcome to part three of the 4-part mini-series presenting different takes on tweed trousers. So far we’ve had a look at a good pair from Toast, a reasonably priced pair from H&M, and today we will investigate an unusual pair from SEH Kelly. Unusual in which way, you may be thinking, we are talking two-legged trousers and how unusual can…

A weekend in Gothenburg


While I am quite happy to enjoy a weekend at home in the mansion, with a fire roaring in the fireplace, a mug of tea at hand and good book, I also like travelling and visiting new places. And by visit I mean “go somewhere for a walkabout”. Last weekend saw me getting restless and once it was determined that…

The “winter has returned” editorial and pictorial review


One aspect I enjoy of living on the coast of Southern Norway is the mild winters we have. Just enough snow and cold to let you know the season is the cold and white one, but for the most part not bad enough for it to become too unpleasant. A few months of -20C, darkness and heaps of snow may have…

Trouser Tuesday: An entry level pair of tweeds from H&M


As promised last week, part two of 4-part series of tweed trouser reviews. This has been a long time coming and I know thousands of eager readers have waited for this series with bated breath and raptor-like suspense. Yes, indeed, tweed trousers are really all that and a bag of chips, as some would say. Others would say “a pair of…

This years gloves, by SEH Kelly


I have a small habit to confess to. It’s not a bad habit, per se, but a consistent one. You see, every Autumn when it starts getting cold in the morning, I fancy a new pair of gloves. And a decent pair at that. Genuinely good gloves tend to last more than a single season, if taken care of, so…

Guide: How to get set up for braces


Braces, or suspenders if you like, are a mainstay of a gentleman’s attire. Sometimes you may be in luck and find the lucky pair of trousers that will sit on you without falling down, and hopefully without acting like a tourniquet round your vital parts. Mostly though, you will be in need of some aid to avoid embarrassing trouser droopage and…

Getting back into the normal flow of things after a slow period over Xmas. Trouser Tuesdays are back on track with part 1 of a 4-part series of tweed trouser reviews. The idea is to present a mid-range pair, as in this weeks pair of Harris Tweed trousers from Toast, then a more reasonably priced pair, a splendidly exotic pair…

A few tips for the current sales


It is the season for sales, I thought I’d give a few tips for places I tend to browse while mentally squandering the massive inheritance that should be coming any day now from the estate of my unknown uncle in Africa. Seriously though, there are lots of nice things to be had, so if you’re thinking of getting some new…

Trouser Tuesday: Toast does Harris Tweed


This is the first part of 4 where I’ll be taking a look at tweed trousers. I’ll feature a mid-range pair, a low-end pair, and rather unusual pair, and an expensive pair, which also happen to be maybe the silliest trousers around. To start things off I’ll go with the mid-range, then we’ll work our way along, week by week.…

Book review: “Icons of men’s style” by Josh Sims – round two!


This is a book I reviewed almost two years ago and here I am again, with a  brand new copy in my hands. In a physical way it’s entirely different, though the content is exactly that same as the previous edition. What I’m really saying  is that it’s now been re-released in a physically smaller version, with the same decent…
