Men’s Fashion

A trip to Hawkins, Indiana, in Stranger Things might be a nightmare of uncanny terror, but a journey back to the ’80s with the hit Netflix series is wall-to-wall nostalgia. In amidst the Spielberg references and throwback soundtrack, the fashion of Stranger Things is also well worth a binge-watch. The retro costumes on-screen turned the

Next summer, things are going to get a bit touchy-feely, in the best possible way. For SS20, menswear trends are all softness and sensuality, a resounding clapback to the chest-out testosterone of all that sports- and streetwear from recent years. This is masculinity as a louche, tactile thing, all soft fabrics and sighs. The shift

Towel? Check. Sun screen? Check. Snorkel? Check. Anything we’re forgetting? Maybe. Getting dressed for the beach isn’t as easy as it should be. There are a lot of elements to consider – sand that will tear up your loafers, a gusty sea breeze to contend with, the general sogginess of sitting next to lapping ocean

Buying your first ‘proper’ watch – or gifting it, for that matter – has never been easier. There’s the volume of good advice for a start, accessible and understandable outside the murky denizens of watch-nerd forums (over here, for example). And for once, there’s little danger of those watch-nerds looking down their noses once you’ve

There’s something about the heady mix of serotonin-inducing sunshine, cocktails galore and all your mates in one place under the setting sun that makes a summer night out non-negotiable. But what to wear to the bar? Not all watering holes are created equal and you risk being turned away from the most upstanding establishments if

You almost certainly own workwear already: jeans, khakis, denim jackets, maybe a chore coat or a chambray shirt. Many wardrobe classics were designed for working in – that’s hard, physical work – and it’s their straightforwardness and durability that have seen them stick around, many since the 1920s and 1930s. But workwear today is made

Without a little careful planning and consideration, attempting to stock a new-season wardrobe entirely from scratch is about as much fun as going to the doctor for a prostate exam. Especially when parting with significant amounts of cash. Fortunately, we’ve done it for you (the careful planning bit, not the prostate exam) by compiling 31

It’s bold, it’s bright, it can be downright migraine inducing, and it almost certainly doesn’t feature in your wardrobe. Yet. Tie-dye has long been the stuff of stylists’ nightmares. A swirling rainbow of uncool, it has a tendency to leave wearers resembling something that stumbled out of a tent at Woodstock in a cloud of

Perhaps you’ve heard, but fashion isn’t the most, shall we say, eco-friendly interest. Though that much-touted stat that apparel is the world’s second most-polluting industry is definitely hyperbolic, there’s no denying that clothes do terrible things to the planet. And it’s your fault. Corporations are, ultimately, amoral – they care about profit, not whether children

No matter how much you love your job, work can occasionally turn into a hamster wheel. Maybe it starts with a runaway to-do list, long hours, some weekend work – but it can spiral. Soon, the hamster wheel isn’t just out of control, it’s on fire. Work becomes everything and the stress is unbearable. It’s

Blue might not be the warmest colour but, when it comes to watch dials, it certainly is the most popular. The first wave came back in 2015, when Baselworld seemed awash with the aquatic hue but now what was once something a little avant garde has become a staple in every brand’s collection. And it’s

With its corporate coffee chains, screaming babies and soulless bars, the airport may seem like an unlikely style hotspot. Throw in a pinch of sleep deprivation, a sprinkling of old, pizza-stained loungewear, and what you have is a veritable fashion vacuum. That’s only one side of the story, though. Because, thanks to the frequent comings

For the modern traveller, the world is getting smaller – it’s easier than ever to fly to far-flung corners of the world. Unfortunately our luggage is also getting smaller and cramming everything you need into a small case or worse, your carry-on bag, is a nightmare. Especially if you have to pack a suit. Whether
