Your bespoke Burberry trench coat awaits

Love Burberry I do. Own one of their trench coats I do not. Paradox? Not so much. Choice paralysis? Definitely. You see, I always encounter something of a conundrum when I enter a Burberry boutique: I either am faced with too much choice or a spate of bad luck. So it is that Burberry offer me up so many variations of their trench coats that…

Nick Wooster talks tattoos

There’s no doubt that Nick Wooster is a sharp dresser, but one whose sartorial influence extends beyond clothes and accessories. To my eye, Wooster is equally as likely to influence a gent’s decision to get a tattoo as he is to influence his the rules that help compose his autumn / fall 2011 wardrobe.

Social media attack: what David Jones should have done

Putting it mildly, this hasn’t been a great week for Australian department store David Jones. There was the profit downgrade, followed by a slump in the company’s value on the Australian stock market, and then there was the social media attack directed against them that followed. The social media attack wasn’t, however, directly related to their profit nor value downturns, but rather related to the…

An open letter to Victoria’s Secret

Dear Victoria’s Secret, I respect you. This I cannot deny. It’s a respect that comes largely out of how exceedingly successful at creating your business you’ve been. After all, you’ve created a label that so many people perceive to be a luxury fashion house, and yet it isn’t. For one, your goods are not made by artisans.

Anna Wintour on new media

Anna Wintour has clearly got many a thing right in her career, not the least of which has been the meteoric rise of her profile in recent years. Largely spurred on by a novel-cum-film, Wintour successfully maintained her image despite the fact that The Devil Wears Prada portrayed others such as Grace Coddington as the real heroes behind Vogue. When it comes to new media,…
