Flight Jacket

Dandy & Dapper

Chaps, good to see Doc Martens back in fashion. I have my short back'n'sides, my DMs, my jeans and my Fred Perry polos, but where can I get one of those khaki flying jackets with bright orange lining? Please something affordable and not from those fancy Central stores.

Unless you're a pimp or a rapper-turned-fashion-designer, the fur coat can be a risky statement for a man to make. So how do you keep yourself warm and look cool at the same time?

Dandy & Dapper

I recently moved here from the United States and I miss the Abercrombie/Hollister style of clothing I could get there. Do you know of any place that sells the same style? Not necessarily the same brand, just the same general look.

The Arctic conditions that gripped Britain and most of Europe for three months this winter sent British designers into the cosy territory of Aran knits, longer skirts, shearling jackets and greatcoats. There will be no shivering in chiffon in January as designers got real and produced clothes we will want to snuggle up in next winter.

Leather's a winner on any budget

In the hope of finding a bargain, I decided to explore H&M last week. I wanted to give it a second chance, because my H&M purchases in the past failed the third-wash test. I find it similar to the dating ritual; the more you get to know a person, the more faults you find.

Act casual, chaps, and keep your cool

THIS autumn, the fashion message for men is tres simple : chill out, fellas. No one has to be a fashion slave. And no one has to toss out his wardrobe to look with-it.

Add a vest, a bomber jacket or a half-coat for those chilly trips to Beijing, say a handful of designers, who realise the grunge look will never replace Savile Row in the boardroom.
