When you hear a new album for the first time and you are reminded of artists that you enjoyed as you defined your own tastes in music, you know that the music by the current artist’s album is ticking the right boxes.

Spaceman – The Veras

The new three-track 45 by The Veras is out now, and what a lively slice of music it is! 

 It has to be said, that style culture is often systematic of a rebellion. A resistance to the environment you live in. A form of uniform that serves as differentiation from the accepted.

It seems that if you are influenced by the Beatles, and live in the area of Woolton in Liverpool. Your influences are likely to be worn on your sleeve. Rob Clarke, the main man behind this band does not shy away from his influences and embraces them

If you like your music to have a mixture of the psychedelic, good old British R&B, and Glam then you can't go wrong with this fantastic album that has so many textures and layers -

The Shaggy Dog Story

There are many pieces of knitwear out there, and a whole multitude of styles. One style is an Ivy League staple, and the long-established American outfitter J Press have affectionately called them “Shaggy Dog” sweaters.

The hero of Winter dressing will always be the overcoat. Warm, luxurious and thoroughly practical, a beautifully tailored overcoat gives any wearer an air of stature and style.

According to The Rake ‘London shoemaker Wildsmith is credited with creating the first modern loafer in 1926 for client King George VI, in response to the stuttering regent’s request for a bespoke casual shoe he could ‘loaf’ around his country houses in. A beefier ready-to-wear rendition suitable for outdoor use was soon put into production, and the style was quickly emulated by many more of Britain’s gentlemen’s shoemakers.’
