    +1 - makes me glad that I've got a beard! It takes about two minutes to shave my cheeks above my beard and my neck below my beard each morning.

    I use this stuff. It lathers clear so you can see what you're actually shaving, which is quite useful if you want to maintain a straight line on your beard etc. Lasts for ages as well.

    I think you will find all the shirts on the website - different lighting plays tricks on the eyes especially with stripes and the dove grey

    I saw this the other day in THE AGE.

    I cannot identify even ONE item of clothing this bloke is wearing that qualifies as MOD. Not even by "fashion" writer standards. Going further I cant even see where he has a post modernist (note small but extremely relevant word play) approximation of MOD look or attitude. Let alone "classic 60s mod". No neatness or well tailored look.

    In general I have a laissez-faire attitude to what others wear - otherwise I'd be in hospital - but sometimes I think it should be like the law - especially if your photo is in a "fashion" shoot - ignorance (of history and actual clothes) should be no defence.

    A side note: I always assume that like flying first class, only people who aren't using their own money shop at Harrolds.

    ^ Mod? not even remotely reminiscent of the Melbourne Mod revival 1980 looks more like Crystal Ballroom post punk on any Saturday night in 1981.

    I somehow doubt that he is buying Tom Ford at Harrolds on an audio engineer's salary...

    He sounds (and looks) like a complete knob. On the other hand, he is making an effort, and that is to be applauded.

    In his favour, whilst it's not a great look (in my humble opinion), at least he looks interesting and looks as though he makes an effort, unlike so many people photographed for "street style" pages nowadays.

    My particular bugbear is the street seen/scene (or whatever it's called) page in the free MX newspaper every week.

    The women are sometimes interesting or well-dressed, but most of the men featured are wearing very ordinary shoes, very ordinary jeans/cotton pants/shorts, and a very ordinary shirt, and they say that the shop at Jay Jay's, Industrie or somewhere similar. How on earth are such people "stylish"? They're absolutely unexceptional, as they look like 99.9% of other, late-teen university students or shop assistants. Surely the "style" section should be used to show people who actually look stylish or, at the very least, look as though they make some effort to look a bit different from other people?

    Hey that's not fair! Some of us pay for our own first class trips!


    At the actual first class cost to the airline, thanks to staff benefits :D

    But agreed, he looks like a tool. Only shops at Harrolds. Lololololol

    I'd have said Logic. After all it comes with loops and he's probably a producer too so they'd come in handy.

    Ha. I know that guy. Aside from being an audio engineer he works at Jack London and is a semi-successful DJ in the seedy club scene.

    Points for trying, agreed. Not a fan of the overall look. I'm assuming Harrolds is a "designer" label that is poor quality/style for a lot of money.

    I was in mX once, I think it was 2011. They fucked it up. Bad.

    I told them I was wearing selvedge denim jeans, they wrote I was wearing 'salvaged denim'.

    I talked about liking soft shoulders in my jackets since forever, wearing my clothes till they die and patch pockets, they wrote that 'patched jackets lend a more casual look.'

    FYI for anyone ordering CJ gloves - if you go for a button closure, you can opt for horn buttons for 3 quid extra - you need to add a lining that costs 3 pounds to your order, then email them afterwards and let them know you don't actually want the lining, but horn buttons instead. The default buttons are a cheap looking plastic.

    My replacement order from them has shipped - no more cold hands. A week too late, though!
