Loose ends.


Like Arab Strap said There is no Ending so let's just say the blog and I are on an indefinite hiatus. I'll still be updating the other one with as much LISTEN TO THIS LOCAL BAND THAT I WANT TO SCREW bullshit as I can be bothered to. So you know the deal.
All you need to know is you should do as Peter Griffin did when he got that moustache and wear Denim everything until I come back and tell you it's not cool.

Get in touch dear blog readers, I'm missing you already.

the New Retro.

I don't know about everyone else but I'm getting pretty sick of the 80's being all up in my grill. I never thought I'd say it but it's time to move on kids. I know Summer's coming along and everyone's going for some sort of Easy Rider hippy look or that Wayferers waving American Apparel meets Miami Vice beach party vibe.

But summer? Psh! You know it's always damn cold in England (apologies to international readers) and you also know that we love to wear black and look miserable. At the moment it seems like everyone from skaters to minor indie musicians are dressing like very charming and sensible post-war teens. So I'm pretty sure that 40's nerd cool is the way to go.

Horn rimmed glasses have been cool again for a while now and Raybans Clubmans are the glasses to be seen in this summer (so I'm told). Technically I guess these are more Mad Men than anything else but I could see them in a 40's film so whatever.


And re: my last post (I know it was ages ago) on round glasses, check out these 1940's Parisian girls who most definately put Frederick Blood Royale to shame.


I hope this made sense. I've got out of the habit of blogging...on here at least. Have some more photos I pillaged from the net.





PS- Extra points for pretending to be some camera toting Russian retro punk.

Round we go

Apologies for my absence lately but for one reason or another I just haven't got round to posting here for a bit.

Anyway onto the interesting stuff, thanks to my favourite z-list blogger and former Les Incompetent Fred Blood-Royale, I have a feeling David Hockney glasses will be big this year, replacing the Buddy Holly Morrissey ones everyone (including me) and their dog is wearing right now.







Once again thanks to my good friends lookbook.nu for letting me mine images from their site. Makes my life a hell of a lot easier.
Also fyi both Topshop and Topman seem to be selling versions of these so it's kinda simple really.

blowing in the wind

If there's one person I hate, it's Bob Dylan. Contraversial viewpoint, perhaps, but I just can't stand the fellow. The internet is unanimous though, looking like Bob Dylan is cool. I guess for once I'm behind on a trend. Oh well.





Like I've said before, Tortoiseshell Ray Bans are really cool. Although I do love the gold ones I saw in Urban Outfitters Leeds which aren't anywhere on the internet.



And don't think looking like Bob Dylan is just for guys! Cate Blanchett did it and we all know how cool she is.

Check This

Following on from my last post on tartan, and since it's March (and I am well aware that I didn't keep MLATIL up in Feb), here's a post on the jacket we should all be wearing this year (cos I've seen it in an advert for Skins and Minder)



Awaydays is coming out soon, so you better start pretending you're in a firm and wearing one of these badboys. The real thing's £120 but there's plenty of knock-offs hanging around that are probably cooler anyway.

Check Me Out.

Winter trudges on, regardless of the high street's insistance of Spring/Summer collections. Face it, we're all bloody freezing. We need scarves. Scarves like these






As you can see, Tartan and Burberry look very cool whilst keeping your precious hipster neck warm (and hiding whatever happened on Friday night down the indie disco). Denim jackets are also a key theme here. Pale denim of course, you don't want to look like an ageing motor journalist, do you?

On a side note, is is possible that all these photos are the same person and I am an epic fail when it comes to "resarching" my "articles"
Peace out.

Suck on the Pastels

Neon Pastels. Neon Pastels. What are they? Some sort of Nu-rave-C68? No. It's this year's latest colour trend, so I'm told.





Oh it's all sunny and nice. I don't know what neon pastels mean exactly but I think it's something to do with looking like you're in the video to Rio

Anyway, short and sweet today, I'm off ot try and harvest more images from lookbook for my next one. And to pray they'll give me a damn invite.
