Post O'alls / Menpolini Short 2w (Green)

Summer is here. Get the fake tan out. Dig out the birkenstocks and prepare for the mental anguish of what the regulars in The Royal Oak will make of you if you order a mixed fruit Koppaberg. What shall adorn your legs this summer though? Bermuda board shorts? NO. Camo cargo shorts? NO. Skimpy Ralph swimmers? NO. You want to be rocking the Ray Mears hard. If Ray Mears read inventory. But if Ray Mears read Inventory he wouldn't be Ray FUCKING Mears. You're not Ray Mears though and you read Inventory like me. So you can spend £165 on these very average looking shorts. Plus thurs t'added bonus o' knowin' thur med in yarkshur in t'post o'alls facturee lad. Oi Polloi.

rag & bone x Penfield Mallory Jacket

Penfield stands out for it's value. Genuine 70s American outdoor heritage. The flannel clad workwear everyman the style concious among us have had forced upon our psyche these last few years LOVES Penfield. Along with Fjallraven they've become derigeur with the post CP/Stone Island terrace yoof. SO IGNORING all that we've got a £600 collab with rag + bone. Erectizm is happy about this. Oki-Ni

[Projectizm] New Balance MIE 670

Happy New Year FANZ. Back with a vengeance. That and some filthy trainers post festive balls up. When choosing footwear on a night out I always try to imagine the messiest place I could end up in. Me and my mate Dave grossly miscalculated the NYE VIBEZ and thus my beloved NBMIE674s are looking as forlorn and dejected as WOY.

Forlorn by the ruining of my primary pub trainers and the onslaught of FYMW in the great satirical menswear blog stakes I've undertaken a risky and highly dangerous project to revitalise and update the 674s. Here's what you'll need if you want to do this yourself:

A plastic washing up-bowl, some washing up liquid and a jay cloth. Now I know these are quite hard to get hold of items and unless you're one of the lucky few who have a Tesco store in your town then I may just be wasting your time. However if you send us a DM on the old TWTR I can put you in touch with some specialist suppliers who only deal with the fashion industry direct.

The next step is very dangerous and should only be undertaken with a responsible adult in the room. Add some of the washing-up liquid to the washing up bowl and fill the bowl with warm water. The liquid will react in an incredibly complicated chemical manner and don't be surprised if it looks like the above. THIS IS NORMAL.

Next dip your jay cloth into the water/washing up liquid solution. Then vigorously rub the cloth on any dirty areas on the shoe. The dirt should come off after some effort. If you don't get it off to begin with then give it another more vigorous rub. Don't desist no matter how sore your elbow gets. *CHORTLE*.

Finally fill your bowl with some cold water and repeat the wetting cloth/vigorous rubbing/sore elbow process until you're trainers look slightly less fucked than when you started.

Voila. Oh and if there are any music bloggers reading this reading this SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT ONEOHTRIXPOINTNEVER and listen to Modern Love's finest.

And yes our kitchen floor needs a bloody good mopping I know.

Monday, 4 October 2010


In true High Fidelity style it's time for a list. Us men love lists. Making lists, reading lists, arguing over other men's SHITE lists that completely ignore stuff THAT WOULD BE ON MY FUCKING LIST.[How can they rate Good Life OVER Strings of LIFE (Top 5 Detroit songs with life in the title)!!!] Can't get enough. Now most top retailers realise that there's a recession on currently and most designers anticipated the lack of money people would have in their pocket way back when they were pricing up for this season at the height of the recession LAST YEAR. I've picked out 5 pieces the fiscally concious everyman on the British street should be able to crow bar into his wardrobe despite the onslaught of the CON_DEM_nation.

Arc'teryx Veilance Black Patrol Insulated Coat

Two jackets in one. Tremendous value. The only brand to be seen in on the terraces this season. If you want all of 6 people to clock you in your 1300 quid coat THIS is the one to be clocked in. Hi-tech meets HAUTECULTUUOOR and a snip at just under 3 weeks wages. The Bureau.

Nigel Cabourn Everest Parker.

At most times Stanley Park is about as hospitable as Everest to those this end of the A580 but more so on chilly November away days. So toggle up in this authentic vintage heritage genuine period historical reproduction from LORD NIGE OF FASHIONSHIRE. Made in England. Added bonus if yer a roadrunner as I'm told there are pieces of coyote hanging off it. . BEEP BEEP. Oi Polloi

Visvim Whymper Boots


Junya Watanabe MAN x Gloverall Duffle Jacket
"Nice Gloverall mate"
"Oh it's not a Gloverall it's Junya Watanabe x Gloverall"
"Oh the guy who played Mr. Miyagi?"
"Nah mate. JUNYA. From CDG."
"It says Gloverall on it mate"
"No he's altered the sleeves! Only cost 5 times as much as a normal one"

J.W.Anderson SS11 Festival Boot Swarovski Crystal Toe

Take some acid. Go roof a house and stare at your toes. It's what they would want you to do. The press release says so. Oh and it uses the word poor too. Oki-Ni
