East Village E20

Craig shares details of a day spent at the cheese and craft beer market in London’s trendy East Village E20

Just a few short minutes from Stratford station and you’re in the heart of the vibrant, bustling and trendy East Village E20, which according to certain sources is one of London’s hippest postcodes. With various markets and events held there regularly I was excited to be invited to attend the cheese and craft beer market.

Vegan doesn’t have to be tasteless and this incredible fried sandwich proved it.

The smell of street food got us even before we’d entered the market, and there were a number of stalls to choose from, offering wraps crammed with various fillings, Chinese food and vegan delights, to name just a few. View Post

We all know that accessories can lift an outfit from ordinary to interesting. They add a touch of additional colour and interest to your look and say something about the wearer. So what better than to add a touch of bright colour to your cuffs with a pair of bright statement cuff links.

Hawes & Curtis and 42nd Street

Craig tells us why clothing brand Hawes & Curtis joined forces with one of the biggest shows on the west end stage and what he thought of the show

Offering both mens and womens clothing Hawes & Curtis was the brand of choice for famous stars in the 1930s including Fred Astaire. During this period, Hawes & Curtis was renowned for inventing the backless waistcoat which was popular with both royalty and Hollywood dancers. The backless waistcoat was extremely comfortable and always remained in position under the tailcoat. Fred Astaire allegedly approached Hawes & Curtis to have one made, only to be regretfully refused due to high demand from the British aristocracy.

To celebrate Hawes & Curtis’ links to famous stars of the 1930s, they have partnered with the West End’s biggest show – 42nd Street. The production was made famous by the 1933 film starring Ginger Rogers. Set in 1930s New York, the show exudes the height of 1930s charm and is renowned for being the most glamorous and exuberant production on offer. View Post
