We’re so close to supping cider in the park and setting free our pasty legs, so we thought we’d get prepared in our latest issue with summer shoes, shades and shorts. But in case summer doesn’t arrive on time, we’ve also put in this month’s best new movie and a dark gothic trend just to be safe.
Iron Man wants to do what the government says, Captain America wants to go rogue. YEEEEAH! Down with the establishment *spray paints wall with communist graffiti*! In this film friendships fall apart as the Avengers square off against each other after difference of opinion. They could’ve just talked it out, but blowing up stuff is a lot more fun.
It’s too late to get ripped in time for summer, but it isn’t too late to get rips. Give your denim shorts the grunge treatment with raw edges, frays and full on rips to give for a 90s Seattle feel. And if you’re looking for sheer comfort, try out our new jersey styles (just imagine Kurt Cobain at the gym).
Your new favourite garage band have compiled a playlist to get your summer started. From Girls to Dirty Beaches to the Shivas, the Madrid lads have selected ten songs to listen to while you’re fuelling up on ‘cheladas’ on the beach, which apparently is beer mixed with tomato juice. Weird.
Instead of trying on every pair of sunglasses like you’re in some sort of 80s shopping mall montage, just take our word for it and know that the shape you need this season is round.

The modern, directional collection returns for the new season, lightening up as the sun returns with sand, teal green and pink. As always its main focus is on feel and shape, with premium tencel fabric appearing in collarless duster coats paired with cropped wide leg trousers. Get behind the scenes of the pieces and see how it went from idea to production in our new blog post.
‘Tis the season of sweaty feet, so ditch those thick socks and let your feet breathe in our selection of men’s summer shoes.

Enjoy a festival but like to finish off the night with a McDonalds in your own bed? Then We Are FSTVL in London’s Upminster is right up your street, featuring Fat Boy Slim, Shy FX, DJ Snake and Sigma. All the joys of a festival minus the camping and bad hygiene…although the cumulative hangover on the Monday will still be present. If you fancy going, we’re giving away a pair of VIP tickets over on the blog.
We knew it would happen, we just didn’t know when. The second coming is here people: white denim is cool again, proven by our Oxford Circus Personal Shopper Tom Codd. Wear a standout piece separately, like the white denim jacket, to boost your everyday black skinny jeans, or go all-in-one for a skinhead inspired statement.
