Journal Bandolier by Clever Hands

This is a smart idea and it looks great too, hand made from recycled rubber and available now via Clever Hands etsystore...

Nike Air Yeezy 2

Some of you may have heard whispers, hold on let me back up a second. All of you will now have heard the Nike Air Yeezy 2 has been spotted on the feet of their proprietor Mr Kanye West here, there and everywhere. Gaining infinitely more hype with every step this is no doubt the start of another furious fight for the prize. There has already been alot of talk on the design/look of the shoe so here is my two pennys; Overall I think this a much more grown up shoe, it reflects Kanyes own growth as an artist and I really do like them more than the originals. I will reserve judgement until we get the inevitable retail versions, but enjoy these for now...

LN-CC Dig Deep For Japan T-Shirt

Following a recent London Fund raising event “Dig Deep for Japan” LN-CC have also produced this T-shirt to raise money for the victims of the Japanese tsunami and earthquake. 100% of money made from the production and sales of these T-shirts will be donated. Unlike some of the other products I've seen for this cause this piece will last in the wardrobe and is obviously for a great cause. Alternatively you can make a donation here via Just Giving...

Nonnative SS11 Collection

Japanese brand Nonnative bring us some more of their brilliant SS11 'Bluffers Code' Collection and continue to impress with the arrangements of looks and the simple styling which although not ground braking is so consistently good and mixes confort with style effortlessly, it will be hard to find a collection as good as this for this summer, availability is getting better too see their stockist list here...

Carhartt Portable BBQ

Quality festival gear, flat pack, fits 4 large burgers or equivalent, available now from TheOriginalStore...

Nike Free Run+2 City Pack


The aesthetics of the Nike Free Run over its evolution have gone from strength to strength and in my opinion it is one of the best looking performance trainers out there. The Nike Free Run+2 City Pack takes the latest incarnation around the world with 5 colorways each associated with a major city. I think they are all great, the pastel colours are a perfect match for the hazy summer days in the city.

April: Afternoon In The Pub Garden

This is the second installment of my 'monthly' series of posts giving you some ideas of outfits for the month, I put monthly in inverted comma's as due to March being very hectic I didnt get to put out this post last month, so I will be doubling up with another post as soon as I can, let me know what you think...

Norse Projects Lindar Cargo Shorts

Cargo shorts have become somewhat a hated item as the high street seem to make so many bad pairs of them. These green Norse Projects versions are cut perfectly the pockets aren't ridiculously baggy and the material has a lovely finish to it giving it a short of shine in the sun. I think they are awesome.

Folk Stitched Elbow Patch Check Shirt

The first of two pieces from London based Folk Clothing, one of my favourite brands for many reasons but mostly because they make great clothes such as this check shirt, perfect for SS11, this will dress up or down and stand up against any of the heavyweight brands.

Folk Waffle Button Up

April has undoubtably been one of the hottest for a long time, but this certainly doesn't mean you dont need to take something a little warm for the evenings, this waffle cardigan is just the trick, great texture and navy goes with almost everything.

Falke Invisible Socks

If you love the sockless look for the summer but dont want your shoes to be unbearabley smelly as a result, Falke have the answer invisible socks, these are truely invisible even in very low cut shoes, so you dont have to worry about the classic your wearing girls socks banter.

PF Flyers Bob Cousy Lo

Ever since Soulland chose these as their shoe of choice for their SS11 Catwalk Collection I have hunted them down and on a recent trip to the US managed to get my hands on a pair, the reason these look so great is they are different from the standard Cons and they have an authentic canvas color rather than the fake yellowing of the usual summer deck shoes, perfect with shorts and trousers alike.

Burberry Military Watch

A good Military Style watch is an essential accessory for the summer. Burberry are certainly well known for their brilliant tailoring and outerwear but not for their watches, this piece is made in switzerland and may well mark the start of another Burberry takeover.

Jack Spade Embossed Wallet

This embossed leather wallet is so nice, great colour leather and the nautical themed embossed anchors add a little bit of fun and class.

Persol Steve Mcqueen Sunglasses

Persol reincarnate possibly the greatest pair of sunglasses known to man, Steve Mcqueens tortoiseshell foldable sunglasses are compact, effortlessly cool, and can be worn on every summer occassion from Festival to Formula 1. Neccassary item!!

Bodega x Nike Air Footscape Pack

Having previously featured the Footscape a couple of weeks back it seems fitting that it is returning to the big stage with a bang curtosy of Boston retailer Bodega in a 3 shoe pack entitled “Black Cat, Good Luck – Bad Luck”. With three similar models on show the Footscape Woven Motion, Footscape Woven Chukka and Chukka Mid there is something for any fan. The range of materials, weaves and earthy colours on these really give them a neolythic feel, I think these are awesome and I expect them to fly so keep your eyes peeled for a release date...

Nike x Gyakusou SS11 Collection

The first installment of the Nike x Gyakusou collection was a huge success and it hasn't been a surprise to see the follow up Jun Takahashi collection gathering some much deserved hype. This looks like a long standing relationship between the two and expect to see more from them in the coming months/years. The SS11 collection is much more expansive than their first and includes many more pieces. The materials used again are pushing the boundaries, with fabrics that change their breathability depending on their tempurature, the collection is available now from various retailers including DSM and Foot Patrol in London...

TomorrowLand SS11 Collection

Japanese brand showcase their lookbook for the new SS11 collection. Shot on the shores with a nautical esc theme. With a very nice selection of chinos, shirts and outerwear these are really a brand to keep an eye on, some real sophisticated style from such a young brand.

Converse x Ronnie Fieg - Star Player 75 Low Red

A few weeks ago Ronnie Fieg collaborated with Converse on two single colourStar Player 75's, his third instalment is another banger, bright red premium leather. These are sweet as they come, they are as always a David-Z exclusive and available from April 15th...

Editions of 100 Star Wars Prints

Found this nice site recently, offering limited edition prints all in 100 batch series, once their gone their gone. These Star Wars prints are great and available now...

Concepts x New Balance 999

This pair of New Balance 999's has been doing the rounds since its appearance on the cover of the Issue of SneakerFreaker. Finally the day is dawning for their release, the nautical inspiration is beautifully realised and the colorway has got to be one of the best i've seen in a while. Very simple primary colours from nautical alphabet flags accent the simple grey/tan leather and suede uppers. Coming with a host of goodies these release at CNCPTS on April 16th. No word on a European release but I would say FootPatrol and Hanon will be your best bets...
