Bound up

Two village councils in India's Uttar Pradesh state last week ordered their womenfolk not to use mobile phones, go for evening walks, shop in the market unaccompanied by a man, wear blue jeans or even walk in public with uncovered heads. The media rightly erupted in horror, flagellating them for behaving like the Taliban.

Pop, rock and soles

It's a grey, hangover-ridden Saturday morning when we drop in on Ben McCarthy's loft-like apartment in Sheung Wan. McCarthy has just stumbled out of bed and greets us wearing a pair of Izzue jeans and a women's raincoat from Jack Wills.

A balancing act of basics and classics

Printed trousers

If you're still wearing red jeans or lime green khakis, you probably haven't heard the news that coloured pants have been usurped by a new breed. Enter the printed trousers, their more daring cousins.

I'm considering white jeans for summer, but I can't decide if they look right. Thoughts?

Adopting the casual approach

Jason Godfrey has been a model for 15 years, so you'd expect him to be a master of fine dressing. But we found stacks of retro T-shirts in his closet.

I'm considering getting a denim shirt, but I'd like to hear what you have to say first. What do you think of them?

Stylish and vibrant

From prints and pleats to neutrals and neons, spring/summer fashion is bursting with fresh styles to suit everyone, from the conservative to the avant-garde. It also marks the return of colour with vibrant shades of orange and yellow mixed with soft pastels and ocean-inspired blues and greens.

Jeanetic evidence of a year-long desire for denim

Peter Kim, founder and chief executive of Los Angeles premium denim house Hudson Jeans, has been wearing the same pair of jeans for two months. And he's proud to say that he'll probably be wearing them for another 10 months.

'I plan to wear these for a year - no washing, no changing. It's an experiment for me to see how dirty they can get,' Kim said.

She's with the brand

I think Ksubi jeans have the best cut, at least for me. I also love Cheap Monday and vintage Levi's

After working for many years in fashion public relations, Inti Tsui has become known for her rock chick, too-cool-for-school look.
