I used to live in Manc a few years back and haven’t been back too often since. When I was there I wasn’t much interested in menswear or the concept of Casual and so didn’t notice how flippin’ smart everyone is up there. Honestly, I saw about ten different pairs of pristine Adidas as soon as I got off at Piccadilly. Blokes out drinking on Saturday afternoon had matched their jacket perfectly with their sand-coloured desert boots. North West lads take clothes very seriously indeed. Also one of them bought me a pint cos I correctly guessed that his mate was an Everton fan (he looked like Leighton Baines). 
Anyway, I finally went into Oi Polloi to have a perve on all the beautiful things and one of my favourite pieces was this jacket by Nanamica. The workmanship on that shit is off the hook.

I am selling a number of Fred Perry (and vintage, NW3 and COS) items on eBay. They’re all in good condition and in need of a good home.
Please buy them so I can buy more.

I’m nearly 25 and I spent my lunch hour colouring in a trainer. Ensigns are buff though and I desperately want this colour way.

"Like Merseybeat before it and ‘Madchester’ rave in years to come, Northern Soul was a riposte to London’s dominance that amplified a perennially strong northern English identity. The cult grew up against a backdrop of economic decline in the industrial heartlands of Britain … British youth culture provided an alternative community that became a substitute not only for regional and civic pride but nationally for the decline of British global power."

So this is how I occupied my half term. Well done to all these girlies, nailed it!

AMAZING. This was the only bit of the Brit Awards I saw apart from that cringe acceptance speech by Alex Turner.

"A survey of London teenagers in 1967 observed that ‘No one knows what happens to old mods because we haven’t had a whole generation of them yet. Presumably they marry, have children, and settle down to form the backbone of England.’ That is exactly what most of them did - but the backbone of England was never quite the same again, for its vertebrae had been subtly realigned by the experience of Britain’s first youth culture."
