I had the good fortune to be sent on a pair of Claes Goran Chelsea Boots the other week and wanted to give you a demonstration. In the video I go into a brief history of Claes Goran and give you an even briefer outline of the goodyear welted shoe. For more information and where to shop for the Claes Goran Chelsea Boot click here. For a full insight on what goes on inside a goodyear welted shoe then it might be best to check out the Oliver Sweeney tutorial with Cobbler in Chief Tom Cooper which can be found here. For ideas on how to style a Chelsea Boot the Idle Man did a piece here that’s worth checking out. Profile picture taken by John Pickup.View Post

This week I was sent some Funkin Cocktail mixers to review. Doesn’t Funkin sound like a name thought up in a board room filled with over 50’s? Anyway, I’m not getting paid to write about it here, or do a video. However, I needed to test out the camera, the new dolly and the new Movofilms Nano Camera Stabilizer, which in the end just acted as a tripod. I’ll need to figure out why it’s so blurry when I transfer it over to YouTube, looks a lot better on Final Cut. Also how to get a smooth run on the dolly. Anyone got any tips I’d appreciate the feedback. Don’t forget to subscribe that would be nice. Thanks.View Post
Ahead of his fight with Tony Bellew this Saturday 4th March, Live on Sky Sports, David Haye invited me down to his private gym for a training session and interview. Lovely man is our David, always got bags of time for journalists. Even when the allocated time was up, he still had time for a chat whilst he was getting a rub down. We spoke about his confidence levels, would there be any reconciliation with Bellew after the fight is over and of course, we talked Rocky. Check out the interview in the video below.

OK so the name is terrible, but then as far as names go, so is Radiohead. Didn’t stop them being one of the best bands in the world. This weekend we got to sample some of the fabric of an American independent, Gentlmvn. About Founded in 2014 by Isaiah Sanchez, Gentlmvn is a refined lifestyle brand that represents the culture and anatomy of an absolute gentleman, ultimately exhibiting proper style, tongue and grooming.

First thoughts We were handed a bow tie a black tee with the Gentlmvn Logo T motif embroidered on the breast. It felt soft to the touch made from 100% cotton and actually, thankfully, rather slimming. The Shoot The Gentlmvn brand certainly has some good old fashioned chutzpah. Isaiah has constructed a functional easy to use website and is offering a…View Post
This weekend we took some pieces from Ages Apparel for a little wander down Brick Lane.
