Everyday we are out and about in the elements. Perhaps heading to work, going shopping or off to a meeting. Undoubtedly at some point you also will have been caught in a Spring downpour. Sitting in damp clothes for the rest of the day is certainly no pleasure but it is avoidable with some preparation. My recommendation, the new Tornado umbrella from Fulton. A stylish, functional accessory, it’s perfect for keeping you protected from any Spring shower that appears by surprise.

I’m certain most of you own or have owned a denim shirt in your life time. A fantastic, versatile item to have in the wardrobe, it goes with anything from chinos to denim jeans. Yes indeed the old “double denim” is something I’am an advocate of as long as they are not matching in the same colour. When it comes to popping on the shirt itself however, I would guess a good percentage of you have never worn one with a suit. With this in mind, last month I paid a visit to renowned tailor Andrew Brookes in Edinburgh to check out some shirt options and where I also found a denim shirt perfectly suited for any occasion.
