0 Comments

Reading Time: 4 minutesSorting your clothes is a tricky chore, whether you’re an obsessive compulsive sorter or just trying to work out which shirts to keep and which must go. Looking at 50 shirts and trying to work out which you like the most and which you like the least is something the human brain doesn’t handle very well, the more choices, the…

Waistcoat Wednesday: The Hansen Garments “Daniel”

0 Comments

Reading Time: 5 minutesSo, Hansen Garments, tiny Copenhagen-based maker of classic menswear. I would say menswear with a flavour of Nordic Heritage, or perhaps more than a nod to vintage styles, but really Hansen is firmly out there in the left field, doing their own thing. No revolutions, just making things better each season, like sensible people do. And Hansen is quite sensible,…

Reading Time: 3 minutesYep, you may have thought the sales were all over, but no, there are still bits and pieces out there, and in the final dying gasp of the sales the best bargains are there to be had.

Searching for the unique menswear shop

2 Comments

Reading Time: 3 minutesHave you ever noticed how similar menswear shops are? Not the ones your father would go to, or the one you would take your young son into, but the sort of proper one the sorts like you and me would visit.

0 Comments

Reading Time: 4 minutesI find myself on an overcast Thursday morning on the outskirts of London.

It’s enough to put you into a right blue funk, eh? Or, pop on a parka and enjoy the opportunity to get…

Unleash your inner freak with some sock innovation – part 3

0 Comments

Reading Time: 8 minutesSo, that difficult third post about the garment that can only be shown in almost subliminal flashes, the sock. This one will not be hugely drawn out, fluffed up or saggy of elastic, and I will be keeping my focus well below the knee. The first matter that came to mind when playing with fun socks over the past week is that…

Dressing for the tropics?

3 Comments

Reading Time: 6 minutesIn 2 weeks time I’ll be back in Delhi for another 9 days visit. Sadly, most of my time will be spent in a modern office building training Indian engineers, there will be some downtime at either end of the visit and evenings underway. So while the climate outside will be tropical, most of the time is spent in climate controlled…
