In this issue you can expect to find lots of menswear chat from emerging new brands such as Personal Effects, Dr Banana & Parlez, as well as two more established sportswear brands Hummel & Reebok. Mark has also waxed lyrical on corduroy and I’ve gone off on one about the importance of getting outdoors, ideally in a very expensive jacket. We’ve also got a sneak peek at Tokyo’s coolest clothes shop Waiting Room as well as some splendid shoots from our favourite UK retailers. On a dystopian tip we’ve got a piece about the new Rough Trade book on cult film ‘They Live’ alongside a lengthy chat with war correspondent Jake Hanrahan about death and destruction and that. Bringing things back on a positive tip one of our musical heroes Steve Mason has very kindly done us a favourite five.
