  1. For anyone interested, there's a fascinating documentary about East London gentrification called "The Street". If you've got Amazon Prime you can watch it for free via a BFI trial subscription. A very good watch it is too.
  2. Today my friend in London told me that there's quite a big anti-fashion movement going on in the East of the city. It's basically wear whatever you want to wear, no questions asked. Apparently it takes about 2 years before the clothes and haircuts that are fashionable in Shoreditch filter down to the high street by which time the original trend setters have moved on and are laughing at the people buying into the old styles and cuts. So will be interesting to see how this plays out. He mentioned that hair products and shaped beards are very much out for men. He said that it's about not really bothering and that the preened look is being laughed at a lot. Not sure if he's got this right but he also said that there's a lot of mocking of men wearing tight t-shirt. Personally I like a man in tight clothes, but that's just a taste thing I suppose
  3. Banana fish bones- The Cure
  4. Nice to hear, although I'm sure you've always been on point just by being you. Also my London friend says the shaggy hair look's going to be big this summer. Bad news for barbers I spose. I was in East London recently and there was a lot of men with big trousers and big fringes. Soon to be seen here, you know what they say "Shoreditch sneezes and Stokes Croft gets a cold"
  5. Or perhaps stick a League 2 manager at Manchester City and see how they do. Doubt they'd be reaching any Champions League finals or storming premier leagues.
  6. Apparently the baggy jean is about to become the hottest new trend. Do you think that fashion conscious gentleman will go from the slim/skinny jean directly to the new wider look or will they opt for a straight legged regular cut to see themselves through the transition in what must be a testing time for both them and their families? The jury's out for me. I've got a friend who lives in London and all I'm hearing from him is that skinny jeans are dead. I must say it's taken some time but I suppose it makes sense. He also said that tattoos are on the way out too which must be a little concerning for our inked friends. If you have tattoo and love slim/skinny jean, how do you feel about this?
  7. I must say I'm finding this whole thing rather disorientating. I feel like I've been spun round three times only to be labelled an enthusiast.
  8. Finally got round to watching this. Brilliant and important television. Massive respect to Wrighty for making it good man.
  9. Sorry to be annoying but It's "too cross" not "to cross". No offence intended, I just feel that it's important to highlight these things.
  10. I like Wrighty a lot, looking forward to watching this.
  11. Dave on RB giving it some..Good call
