• Is it a coat or is it a Jacket?

    Posted on July 6th, 2011

    We’re so quick to use words willy nilly these days without really realising where they come from or what they actually stand for. I thought it would be interesting to look at all the words associated with Coats, Jackets, Blazers and so on and really get to the bottom of their origins and the distinction […]

  • Some prefer leather

    Posted on June 21st, 2011

    You want a jacket that stands the test of time, which will look good with any outfit, something that is smart but not too formal, yet cool and understated, then you need the coolest jacket in town, the leather jacket. Leather Jackets appeared on the scene in the early 1900’s and were created for the […]

  • The meaning of a coat

    Posted on June 14th, 2011

    It’s quite an ambiguous title but funnily enough, you wouldn’t necessarily know that certain uniforms and styles in the armed forces dictate their rank. Now, my brother is in the RAF and is a Flight Lieutenant. When he’s at work, service men below his rank salute him, and above his rank he salutes, how does […]

  • Throwing some shapes

    When it comes to fashion, you can improve your look simply by taking on board your body shape, and focusing on your best parts to draw attention away from the parts you don’t particularly like or are conscious of.

  • Away for the weekend

    Posted on June 1st, 2011

    Back to work today, after yet another great British Bank Holiday. Ahem. I know a lot of friends and family decided to jet off and travel to spend the bank holiday in a different area, I on the other hand stayed put and did a spot of sightseeing and DIY, after all, that’s what bank […]

  • Celebrities and their duffle coats

    Posted on May 23rd, 2011

    We all know that celebrities (with their personal dressers) are somewhat fashionable. Many young girls open up magazines and decide that they want a dress like Beyonce’s or a handbag like Paris Hiltons.

  • Duffle coats, a necessity for winter

    Posted on May 19th, 2011

    I know we have only just entered spring, however I am going to retract slightly, or fast forward depending on how you see it, and speak about the great duffle coat and how necessary it is for those cold winter months! The most important thing a man needs during the cold winter months is a […]

  • The Duffle Coat and my father

    Posted on May 17th, 2011

    My father is renowned for his stories; fond stories of mine and my brother’s childhood, exaggerated stories about his teenage years, proud stories of his father during the war and so on; he is basically one big story book. Although, we usually screw our faces up when my father tells another one of his stories […]

  • One day, two totally different outfits

    Posted on May 13th, 2011

    As we all know, the British weather can be a tad temperamental. This is perhaps why I have seen one lady in shortest skirt possible and a vest top as well as a lady in a duffle coat and jeans all in one day. Or perhaps it’s because the lady in her duffle coat is […]

    As I walk the streets of my suburban town, down through the park and over the river; I see many youngsters enjoying the summer sun.
