ALERT THE MEDIA – When I was on holiday in Spain I made a massive fashion discovery; it turns out that the Iconic Wayfarer sunglasses by Ray-Ban (that I have previous written about) aren’t the work of Ray-Ban at all. Actually the original design was created by a company called Koyo Bom. Ray-Ban even managed to steal their logo and make theirs look almost identical, unless under close inspection. Koyo Bom have obviously suffered badly after this massive copyright…

  They say that a dog is man’s best friend, I think that ‘they’ are wrong – It’s the hoody. I don’t mean the hoodies that hang around shopping centres and David Cameron is so keen to hug, I’m talking about the warm, winter essential. Everyone has one: their long serving, warm, comfy, reliable hoody. They are there for you through everything, times good and times bad.

Winter is coming! About this time last year I was starting to think about coats, you see I’m normally one of those people that spends all winter thinking I need to get some gloves but doesn’t get round to buying them till April when its finally warming up.

A couple years ago I bought this watch. It does look a little like something that a child or a power ranger would wear, but I love it. Like most Swatch watches it was made in a limited number and is now quite rare.

I pretty much live in check shirts, they are just awesome. I tend to wear them like the guy down there. With the top couple buttons undone and sleeves rolled up to the elbows.
