    I felt like being saucy and starched my jeans. Not enough for them to stand on their own, of course.

    Hmmmm, Zegna maybe. Though I think Ralph Lauren would probably be the smart choice. Both feature timeless designs of exceptional quality, but have a firm enough grasp on the modern without going overboard. Also, both produce enough variety that you'd always have something decent for any occasion.

    I'll have to go with Lakeland. The one designer restriction used to seem like an annoyance, but now I see it as a wonderful chance to explore the possibilities of HazLeisure.

    I have the Apolis Transit parka from that line nad it's essentially just a single cotton (supposedly Ventile) layer. It's fine for layering over a suit, but London in January seems pretty darn cold and I'd go with something more insulated. Also, the craftsmanship of the jacket is rather meh.

    It's that time again. We've got a special issue of the Styleforum Brief coming your way next week, so make sure you sign up. Oh, and if you like Star Wars - well, stay tuned.

    I can't say I'd be happy about it - or that I'm particularly happy to admit it - but yeah, probably the same here.

    I don't think I've ever worn a single label head to toe, but I own top-to-bottom elements (shoes, pants, shirt/sweater and outerwear) from at least four brands.

    Out of those four, Lanvin and Prada are the two with which I could actually produce wearable outfits.
