Bored. As the world ends around us in a coronavirus apocolyse. I decided to tweet out some of my old blog posts. The original “5 Brands I’d Never Be Seen Dead In.” Who goes and tweers a reply… only Sleaford Mods. Well blow me down. I thought I’d be cheeky didn’t I.
I lived with a mate once who was a die hard Evertonian – one of the angry ones. He was also a top bloke and a real scouser. He knew how to dress and in the true sense of the word casual he liked to do things a bit differently, seek out lesser known brands, […]
See the bottom of the post for a chance to win a pair! I feel like I’m getting less and less excited about adidas release these days, maybe all the re-releases are getting a bit much and saturation is finally kicking in, or maybe I’m just trying to train my brain to switch off the […]
In the second in my series of “Casual Chats” I caught up with David, Liverpool fan, trainer obsessive and the man behind one of the North West’s best loved bands – The Ragamuffins. We talk Liverpool’s title win, The Ragamuffins and having Liverpool legends see you changing a nappy… trainers of course and Liverpool as […]
Despite being a relatively quiet person, I’ve always loved conversion. I’m fascinated by people and hearing what they have to say. I’ve also always loved the every day, ordinary, normal people. I think they are the most interesting. So I decided to try and start having “casual” chats with mates, people I know vaguely and […]
When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease my biggest concern was not being able to drink lager, luckily I soon discovered that Gluten Free Beer did exist! As time has gone on I’ve discovered more and more, not just independent craft types, but a lot of the big boy breweries have their own Gluten […]
I love a pool slide. Or more specifically an Adilette. My obsession with them is getting close to my relationship with trainers. It’s worrying really. But I have started to spot some that I like that aren’t even adidas! Look at me, I’m growing. So with that in mind, I thought I would pick out my […]
Another re-release from the 80s, the adidas Frankfurt is perhaps the most unusual of the limited edition city series. The bluebird navy and silver colour way with suede and leather is very easy on the eye, it is the velcro straps that stand out. Despite having the original terrace feel from the 80s and more than […]
Having to #stayhome has given me a lot more time to play with so I thought I would do a weekly post – The Casual Edit. It will be a selection of some of my favourite new products, videos and music to help you pass the time and anything else that has caught my eye in these strange times.
trange times we’re living in eh? Pretty scary, but also everything still feels sort of the same. Very hard to comprehend at the moment and no one knows where this will end. But one thing is certain, loads of independent businesses, creatives and musicians are going to be really affected. So I just wanted to put together a post about some of my favourite artists, bands, independent labels and businesses and show how you can support them through this, by buying something, donating… whatever.
