Topshop, H&M, Mango, they’re all at it with their boldface photographers and supermodel ad campaigns. Latest to join Josh Olins, Terry Richardson et al in the high street ad campaigns camp is Ellen Von Unwerth for River Island. (more…)
If you love the fine-rib-socks-and-wedges look for spring (as I do), then here’s a recommendation for you. H&M have the best socks on the high street. I’m still wearing the long ribbed fuchsia and grey socks I bought years ago and they have kept their shape, haven’t worn through at the heel or toe and – the best bit – don’t wriggle off your feet when you’re wearing boots. I dont actually wear wedges but I’ve just bought this pack of 2 silky ankle socks in porridge (to wear with my tan Church’s brogues) and rust (to clash with my emerald Kurt Geiger T-bars). And of course I couldn’t resist the wee plastic Minnie Mouse-shaped box as a(nother) knick knack holder for my desk…
Living with a fellow of rather refined tastes means I get a lot of ‘why don’t you blog about this?’ emails. So I decided to ask D do write a guest post. After much scrolling through Mr Porter et al, he has picked his favourite menswear buys below, along with a line or two of commentary. Enjoy!
