Sunburn, festivals, wasps, supermarkets stacked ceiling high with disposable BBQs. It can only mean one thing: it’s summer in the northern hemisphere. Yes, and as the temperatures rise so too does the number of new summer sneakers hitting shelves from London to LA. Keeping abreast of them can be arduous, though. Plus, who wants to

Even if you didn’t know any of its history, the Speedmaster would still be a highly desirable watch. In a world of hyperbolic marketing around luxury timepieces, here’s a watch that is literally otherworldly. Sure, like the Rolex Daytona, it combines a design that is both classic and contemporary with seriously impressive mechanics under the

There are some shockingly bad floral shirts in this world. And we’re afraid they’ve given this particular genre of collared tops a bad rap. Bad floral shirts are very bad – they tend to be rainbow-coloured, uncomfortably slim in cut, and sometimes feature ‘quirky’ contrasting buttons and stitching. It’s the ‘going out’ shirt that should
