  • From a Sunday Times article on the influence of television and film on men’s fashion (which also included 

For the past 10 years, the thirtysomething creative has been dressing, well, down. He’s never been smart, and he’s certainly not dapper. But things are changing and it’s snappily dressed men on TV and in film who are behind it. “There’s been a rise in fashion-conscious men in sharp suits, especially in the media,” says Gordon Richardson, Topman’s design director. “Your average fella is shopping to be like them.” 
 Men don’t shop like women: they don’t “do trends”, there are no “must-have pieces”. Men look at other men for style cues and, until recently, other men didn’t really do dressed-up fashion. “People like Dermot O’Leary are sharp dressers,” says the suit-savvy rapper Wretch 32. “You look at him in those great double-breasted numbers and you want one.” O’Leary and Gary Barlow have both nailed the “fashion” suit — a slim-fitting, go-anywhere three-piece that Asos, Topman and Burton tell us there is huge demand for. 
 Meanwhile blockbusters such as The Wolf of Wall Street are packed full of preppy get-ups to be aped, and period dramas such as Peaky Blinders, with the undercut hair, tweed jackets and penny-collar shirts, have also become a lesson in how to dress well. Your average bloke now feels he has permission to dress up like his on-screen hero.

  • Sam is a funny guy. Awards are so arbitrary. To say that one thing is better than another is crazy.

    Hi, is there a known date for the beginning of the second season, or not yet? Great blog by the way ;)

    Thank you! 

    There isn’t a definite airdate yet, no. Apparently it’s scheduled to return sometime in August, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet, so please take that with a grain of salt until we know more :)

That one minute. The soldier’s minute. In a battle, that’s all you get. One minute of everything at once. And anything before is nothing; everything after - nothing. Nothing in comparison to that one minute.
