I’m a fan of the Bellroy range of wallets, I make no excuses for it. Their range of quality leather, pocket slimming wallets will revolutionise how you view wallets and all the things you carry. Minimalist is something I think of when trying to describe them, but actually they are perfectly full featured. Bellroy wallets are very simply clever.

Here is my round up of the best from Jacket Required AW15. I would traditionally shy away from the menswear trade shows, simply because for a long time, high fashion and niche trends have ruled where I would prefer updated, current evolution of classic tailored style. Thankfully with the resurgence of the modern gentleman over the past couple of years, times are changing and I like to keep abreast of current developments.
On my hunt to find the perfect Valentines day gift recommendation, I came across Sock Beat, simply the most fun packaged socks I have ever seen on a webpage. As a gent who has a penchant for fun but stylish socks, this had to be the perfect solution.
Let’s get one thing clear right out of the gate: BOMBERG aren’t subtle. And this isn’t just in terms of their design, either.
