birds boxers

If ladies should be given fancy lingerie for Valentines, why shouldn't a chap get a nice pair of custom boxers from Birds of Sausalito? They are steep at $65 a pair, but compared to the girlie stuff it's nothing!

And, as the boys at Put This On said: Generally, I’d say that if you have the money, one of the best places to spend a little extra is on the fabric that’s right next to your junk.

Mr Lee's General Store and Haberdashery

I want to go to there

Frank O'Hara: Poem (Lana Turner has collapsed!)

Lana Turner has collapsed!
I was trotting along and suddenly
it started raining and snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the traffic
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I see a headline
there is no snow in Hollywood
there is no rain in California
I have been to lots of parties
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh Lana Turner we love you get up

Mumford & Sons - The Cave

I get really dorky and giddy about Mumford & Sons. Genuinely bananas. BANANAS I TELL YOU.

Also, I'm on my second coffee of the day before 9am so the fire has been fueled.

In any case, watch this full screen and pretend you're in the sunshine and singing way out loud with your arms stretched.

Again, this may be the caffeine talking...

The Strange Boys - Woe Is You and Me

so money

everyone's a winner

new new me?

my wanting a head of red hair is nothing new, but now I want it combined with a La Roux coif...

Let's hope I don't get stuck with any spare time on my hands this weekend...

PS I Love You - Facelove

This song makes me super happy. Buy it on vinyl and on the flip side you'll find the wonderful Diamond Rings track.

Plus, a nice little hand written note of thanks.

Class Actress - Let Me Take You Out

je l'aime

le sportif

I'm fully embracing dressed up sporty looks. I even bought "posh" track pants, as much as them having a zipper makes them posh. And my newest ebay fascination - vintage fencing jackets...

I'm going to look like I escaped from a mental institution but I'll feel quite happy regardless I imagine. And if not it will be a great wardrobe for sitting around watching movies.

But at least there's more time for puppies to keep dressing all snazzy!!


I'd very much like to get Fire & Knives through the letterbox. If anyone fancies a few dinners per issue cooked chez moi in return for the subscription, it's a deal. I'll let you use my Barnum & Bailey glasses and everything!

exit strategy

coming in

I need a break

suggestions welcome.

half way

This is pretty much how I dress everyday though without the insta-chic of this girl captured by Garance...

I'm going to be hunting for a long tweed jacket now. I'm seeing Sherlock Holmes this week and I have a feeling I'll be on a tweed binge from then on.
