The Spring Low Down - Part Two - The Camp Collar and Print Shirt

By T W Coombs

Just as a random heat wave moves on from the UK we will now be hit with rain showers mixed with some Sun and lows of 4 degrees, which is always a nightmare when it comes to sartorial ideas.  I would love to tell you all how to exactly dress but sadly you have to take the gamble of warmth or rain on a daily basis and you will find you get caught out.

The Spring Low Down – Part One

By T W Coombs

The sun is here, the heat is rising and we are still fully wrapped up because you can never be too sure and to be honest we are only weeks away from a snow storm that shut Britain down. But I have had a word and I’m sure we can get our SS18 wardrobe out soon.

This is the first of a series of blogs on Spring fashion this year and keeping it high street and affordable and what I like and what you may also like.  I kick this off with the inevitable rain.
Being British we live most of our time in the rain, looking at rain and waiting for rain so it really is a big part of our lives, so why when it does rain we look terrible.

There are two types of rain, straight forward rain and the worst the “oh for f~*k sake I can’t even hold my brolly” windy rain. You need to cover both bases at once; the easiest is the straight forward just use a umbrella rain but when that brolly fails you need to be covered.  Of course there is more to it, this is a fashion blog after all, when it rains you need to think practical and stylish, we all know how we dress for work, the uniform so here is the out of hours, the casual.

Umbrellas are key but so are darker trousers, you don’t need those water marks and mud stains noticeable up the back of your legs now do you. So go for dark colours on bottom, a casual shirt and an awesome oversized Mac, like the below outfit from Zara available right here, and grab a black modern style umbrella to keep that hair in shape and off you go unless the wind picks up them your hair can look after itself. Chinos are key here as light weight so dry quick and keep you cool in the hopefully rising heat.

Meet the Grey Owl

By T W Coombs esq.

With the abundance of street-wear hitting our streets and with the casual attire of Generation X some may think the old is out.  But this is not the case, the dapper generation still want to master the art of the oldest accessory.  Originating from 17th century, during the 30 year war in France, King Louis XIII spread this fashion which he took from some of his soldiers.  But this is not the oldest bit of pea-cocking I know one simple one which can be taken back to the Egyptians.  I am of course talking of the Tie and the Pocket Square.

Sock it to me - BAM Clothing

By T W Coombs

The lovely people at Bamboo Clothing kindly sent me a pair of their socks from their Kingswear range to give them a whirl.  So I slipped them on and popped them into my everyday trainers and to show them off a little put with a turned up pair of jeans.  This is my normal daily work wear and these fitted in nicely to the look, the striped pattern is a little treat for the eyes and breaks up the mundane within an outfit.

The Social in Social Media - The Algorithm

By T W Coombs

I had some call by others to do another copywriting blog and after much pondering and a lot of people freaking out I decided to get my head around the new Facebook Algorithm.  That nasty bit of code that even makes your most recent not your most recent. So here goes.
