The 620 dates back to 1980 with a marketing plan directed at the then new Nike Air Tailwind with the tagline “Lighter Than Air”. The sneaker was more than just talk, it weighed in at 224 grams and was hailed as most advanced runner on the market. Today the sneaker is no longer state-of-the-art but you can still run the streets in these trim runners, which will soon release in three colourways.

Wolsey Membury Cotton Canvas Jacket

 

So now the Olympics & Paralympics are over so is the summer so its time to invest in Autumn Winter outerwear…hang about though mother nature is still taking the piss and the temperature is up and down like a like a fiddlers elbow so what is needed is a jacket that fills the transition between Autumn & Winter. Hey Presto one that fits that bill is Wolsey’s Membury cotton canvas jacket. The original was designed for those soldiers facing variable climates, since it was relatively roomy, and had a detachable insulated lining which could be worn underneath if the temperature dropped.

Wolsey’s quilted version is heavily garment washed to give it an authentic look, and features two large bellow hip pockets and two medium-sized breast bellow pockets, and removable button on hood. Equally at home in town or on the battlefield (dont laugh I live up North!)  the Membury jacket is given a contemporary city edge with the addition of a zip down nylon bottom flap, internal pockets and MP3 lead outlet.

H&M Autumn Winter 2012 Lookbook

 

Despite being categorized under the umbrella of “fast fashion,” H&M has always maintained a decidedly high-end approach to its seasonal lookbooks, imagery and visuals. Presenting its Winter 2012 range, the Swedish retail and fashion giant debuts a minimalist and cleaned up pictorial highlighting its range of menswear. For this season, the brand initially displays an affinity for all things formalwear via tailored blazers, skinny ties and knitwear. While overtones of formal garb are heavily promoted.Obviously the swing to streetwear is is there in Letterman jackets & hoodies. Dont expect any of these items to be amazing quality or last more than a season..
