Fly53 Men’s Kyoto V-neck Knit

29th September 2008

Fly53 Men's Kyoto V-neck Knit Here’s a tasty black jumper with eye-catching yellow collar and cuffs like some Toyah Wilcox throwback from the early 80’s.

The site says it’s a ‘Mid-weight 12 Gauge’ which sounds pretty dangerous, so be careful when wearing this thing. Check the safety catch is on first.

Available in small, medium, large and extra large.

This Fly53 Men’s Kyoto V-neck Knit is now £40. Shipping is £3.50.

Converse All Star Double Upper

26th September 2008

These trainers have a split personality disorder, bi-polar and double laced. They think with two minds and talk with two tongues. Will your feet be able to handle such a psychological mix?

Available in sizes from 7 to 13.

This pair of Converse All Star Double Upper trainers are £40. UK shipping is £3.

Ask SmartGeezer: Where can I get a casual waistcoat?

25th September 2008

Ask SmartGeezer: Where can I get a casual waistcoat? Lawrence emails SmartGeezer with this little tester:

I’m trying to find a store that has a decent selection of must-have waist coats?

I have to apologise to Lawrence cause he sent this a while back and I’ve only just got around to answering it. I shall punish an elf on behalf, accordingly. Once again, I packed off the SmartGeezer elves to forage into the underworld of the webs to find UK websites selling such items that would adequately please Lawrence. If not, they would be banished from this place like diseased ridden old whores. If they succeeded, they would be fed the bare minimum portions that befit slave elves.

Did they eat or were they banished? Find out below:

All Saints – Some good waistcoats here on the more high end of the smart spectrum.

Ben Sherman – got a few knocking around in there somewhere.

Austin Reed – mainly really smart wedding type waistcoats but you never know, you might want to be looking extra sparkly!

Burton – I think this link may save my elves from banishment, quite a few casual waistcoats at good prices.

YOOX – a good selection but also a bit heavy handed on the pricing. Who know’s? Maybe Lawrence is loaded.

Dress For Less – take a closer look through this page and you’ll see a very nice selection of casual waistcoats.

Roktic – Streetwear Clothing

18th September 2008

Roktic I don’t know if you’ve noticed this week but I’ve been extremely slack. I felt like taking a week off out of sheer laziness.

Then Joe from Roktic emails me and says check out my clothing site. So I do and he brings me a nice easy excuse to pull my finger out and post something this week. I’ll get back to normal next week.

Roktic sells streetwear tshirts, hoodies and bags all with that retro 80’s feel to it. My favourite tshirt is the one I’ve stuck in the photo on the left here. Not a huge range like other stores but a good quality range nonetheless. All smaller, lesser known brands so it’s all original stuff here, none of your major brand nonsense.

Easy to use simple site and good photos, I think a good addition would be a good size chart especially as these are small brands who may size their stock differently to each other and to the major brands who may use to pick your size. There’s free shipping for September and they do returns, so it’s not a turn off, just a nice addtion.

Overall, Roktic is a good site with some great items you’re not going to find anywhere else, well worth a visit. Thanks for the email Joe.

I’m going to hibernate for the rest of the week now.
