Editorial: New Year, and the way forward


Reading Time: 5 minutesWell, the Yuletide celebrations are winding down here at the mansion and with the fireworks of the start of another New Year still shimmering on my retinas. A time for pondering over a mug of tea, the good and bad of the year that passed, and what possibilities the shiny new one holds.   Like a beacon of hope in…

Editorial: Into the woods we go, wearing coats


Reading Time: 6 minutesYes, I seem to be spending a lot of time in the woods of late. It’s a great place to be this time of year, even though it’s a bit nippy and most of the trees are stripped for winter. Suddenly you can see what’s around you, instead of being in a sea of green.   Keeping a lookout from…

Editorial: Fine reading, lookey looks and and torrid tweed – The week that was


Reading Time: 5 minutesAutumn, a time for deep contemplation, catching up on reading and taking photos of colourful, fallen leaves, naked trees and certain men showing their daily outfits? Yes, those Instagram photos keep appearing on a regular basis. If you don’t follow me, I’ve included them below for your viewing convenience. Speaking of reading, I’ve noticed the stack menswear-related titles has been…

Editorial: Autumn and armpits, an odorous life


Reading Time: 4 minutesIt’s Friday, it’s the end of October, and even the most ardent fans of Summer will no doubt be aware that Autumn is in full effect. This is my favourite time of year for talking a walk in the woods. Not just the colours, but the sounds, the smells and the views. Good stuff. And it offers up some great…

Travels, findings and musings – editorial


Reading Time: 4 minutesAs promised last week, I’m making an effort to get back on track with my pictorial posts. This is where I collate my favourite Instagram posts from recent times into an easy to ingest digest, and preface it with some editorial content. As a winning formula it’s not the worst I’ve come across. Right now I’m off to Copenhagen for…

Reading Time: 3 minutesFinally life is calming down a little. This summer has been busier than most, with 3 trips to England, one to India and getting married. Those that follow me on Instagram have been joyfully able to track my movements and experiences every step of the way. For those of you that prefer to wait for my infrequent pictorial updates, here…

Tube strikes, sullen supermodels and more awesome summer looks!


Reading Time: 5 minutesI find myself on an overcast Thursday morning on the outskirts of London. The sky is grey, looks like it could easily dissolve into rain, and I could easily find myself complaining about the quite disappointing weather this sumer. It’s enough to put you into a right blue funk, eh? Or, pop on a parka and enjoy the opportunity to get…

Simply sartorial Summer stuff


Reading Time: 3 minutesSummer time and the living is easy, or so the song goes. And sartorially so I think it really is. Easy, and perhaps a little less fun? If you’re a bit like me, where you like your thick tweed and heavy denim, some stout footwear and a good scarf, dressing to keep the chill out, then Summer poses a a…

The return of the Instagram roundup


Reading Time: 3 minutesWriting for the blog has taken a back seat in recent weeks, primarily due to other commitments, including getting my old Jag back on the road, getting the new greenhouse stocked and started, and this and that really. And it all comes down to seeking out that which inspires, and finding a way back into the saddle once you find yourself out…

The weeks that were – a bumper catch-up


Reading Time: 4 minutesWhat with convalescence and a long Easter holiday I quite forgot to post my weekly summary of Instagram images. To make up for this unacceptably poor level of service, I hereby offer up an almost full selection. And to add further joy to the event, a lot of the images are of the evil twins, or triplets, in some cases.…
