Hip Hop <3 Dragon Ball Z

We love Hip Hop music. From Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash and Kool Herc’s time, through Immortal Technique, 2Pac, The Lady of Rage, Nas and Jay Z’s time and all the way up to today, with Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, J. Cole and Earl Sweatshirt. It’s not just about the sick beats, there’s a raw poetic truth to the stories told in the lyrics. And we’re here to listen. MCs are the literary artists and rap is their poetry… But we could geek on about that for hours. So let’s move... Read More

Our Guide To Rocking Chains and Pendants

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the strict stereotyping in fashion is finally starting to blur. Obviously, women have been wearing trousers and cutting their hair short for almost 100 years now. But with men, the benchmarks seem to keep moving. One decade, long hair and make up are in; the next decade, it’s snapbacks, baggy t-shirts and ripped baggy jeans with chains; then we’re onto tight-as-you-can-get jeans and long t shirts that aren’t far off from dresses. This may ruffle some feathers (unintentionally), but it... Read More

Yay for Pavé

This is just an appreciation post for our favourite type of gem setting to be honest.   Pavé   Why we love Pavé What’s not to love? Pavé sets anything on fire (not literally, don’t sue us). And it genuinely works on anything. Got a boring old bangle… Pavé it. Got a boring old chain… Pavé it. Got a boring old ring… Pavé it. Got a boring old watch… Pavé it!   Nothing makes you feel fresher than walking around with a sea of diamonds on you.   And in general,... Read More

Too Many Gem. Too Many Many Gem … Settings

Too Many Gem too Many Many Gem … Settings   First, lemme’ just say there’s no such thing as too many gems. We love to be blinded by a good bit of bling. But, anyone remember the Boy Better Know Too Many Man song by Skepta, ft Wiley, Jme, Frisco, Shorty ? Well that’s how we feel about gem settings. Too many settings too many many settings. (… Just doesn’t have the same ring though, does it). We realised that it’s impossible to know which one someone’s on about without looking... Read More

Why men should thank Louis Cartier and Alberto Santos Dumont for watches

The Cartier Santos Dumont The first aviation wristwatch and the watch that made watches manly.   This post’s all about the first aviation wristwatch. Doesn’t sound like a big deal does it?

But that’s pretty much what they were, pocket watches strapped to wrists. Hardly hardcore... Read More
