Lofty Aspirations: things we like #3
Leaky ballpoint in hand, you're circling your material desires in the Index catalogue. Meanwhile, your mum is downstairs cooking egg, chips and beans to the tropical sounds of Neneh Cherry. You didn't want that massive Aiwa walkman, you needed it.
Reminiscing aside, here are some things we like this week.
Fred Perry MacLeod Tartan Socks
We know it's a tad early to be thinking about the festive period but just imagine turning up at Auntie Barbara's in these rascals. Channel your inner Rupert the Bear and you'll be the talk of the table. fredperry.com
Barbour Tartan Boucle Scarf
Barbour don't solely make superb jackets, they also make knock-out scarfs. Get one for this winter for that 70s Dylan look or to help you solve murders. barbour.com
Fed up of running out of storage on your blower, but don't fancy deleting those memories? Let this bit of kit turn those special snaps into something fun and tangible. prynt.co.
New Balance Accessories Classic Backpack
The US sportswear giants knock out some great gear. Pack your egg and cress sarnies for work in this bag whilst pretending you're a track and field supremo or a skateboarding world champ. asos.com.
It's still pissing it down, but it's weirdly quite mild. With that in mind how about something a bit more lightweight and practical? This Pack Mack ticks all the boxes and will be perfect for your fezzies next summer. urbanoutfitters.com
SUIT Denmark have been releasing classic tailoring with a modern and stylish update since 2004. This well-cut jacket puts big fat ticks in both the mountain and workwear boxes. Like us, the great Danes know a thing or two about cold weather and this heavy duty number will be spot on for winter. suit.dk
Armor-Lux Vareuse Port Manech
Pop this tunic/smock on for instant access to a whole world of French fisherman cool. oipolloi.com.
