YSC Brand Watch - Opumo
A triumphant fist punch in the air, as i discover new men’s specific accessories retailer Opumo! Long have we suffered, and I mean myself, searching through countless websites, just for a comprehensive offering of great, well crafted men’s only accessories, but there is now a light at the end of tunnel with Opumo’s launch this week. A website that is clean in it’s...

What We'd Wear - Something for the Weekend
Sticking with (what seems to be) our Friday theme of Stripes…a little outfit build to keep you looking sharp for the weekend ahead! We’ll use a dash of #Marni for the base to this look…lightweight, practical for layering in this cold weather and whilst simple, you are sure to turn heads, with these bold bands of almost autumnal coloured stripes (£340) found on the mr.porter...
YSC - Cover Stars
Victoria Beckham has done her damndest to shake the image of WAG and in some ways the Pop Star status…I have to admit that it was easily achieved with the strength of her WW collections, which have grown from dresses to include outwear and an exciting range of accessories! i-D magazine have clearly noticed her for being more than an incredible clothes horse, as they feature her as a cover...
YSC Say - Let's get Stripey
Thinking about the sailors who have evidently spurned a long time love affair with stripes, here’s a picture that i found trawling the net…i think their fashionable charm shines through in the accessorising of a bobble hat and of course the stripes! It is quite evident to see where the brands, who offer a clean selection of product, draw their inspiration. YSC of course salute you...
YSC What We'd Wear - Spring hasn't quite sprung
As the title suggests, Spring hasn’t quite sprung in Britain just yet…this may be down to the cold weather that has blown over, but shivering aside, YSC got to thinking about what is a clear visual representation, of the changing season, in the busy bustling city of London. The obvious answer here would be the Daffodil bulbs, that emerge to reveal a beautiful yellow flower (which we...
YSC What We'd Wear - Men in Pant's?!
With the most recent release of a celebrity endorsed underwear affair, i got to thinking about men and their pants…Are you a man who dares to bare with the lights still on, or do you switch them off in the knowledge, that you don’t quite match up to the image you’ve portrayed? As David Beckham teams up with H&M to release a line of 6 or so pieces, I imagine that it will...
YSC What We'd Wear - Is there a Dr in the House
British shoe brand Dr.Martens, have a long and very established relationship, with the street culture of London’s cool kids. Having been sported by the punks, skinheads and a selection of New Wave musicians, the oxblood boot was a favourite of the early 90’s and still very much has it’s place in our wardrobe, many would refer to it as a staple for the youth subcultures. As we...
YSC What We'd Wear - Hawaii 5'O
There are plenty of things that tell me that i shouldn’t like this ASOS find, but if i’m really honest, there is an overriding voice, which tells me how damn cool it is. SS12 as we are well aware, is full of somewhat obnoxious brights and prints for modern menswear, and if you are one of the chaps who are brave enough, infact, cool enough to wear them, then this is the one for you. ...
