We’ve known that BARBOUR jackets are badass since we’ve read “Faserland”, at latest. And that WOOD WOOD is cool, we’ve known since we’ve first been to the shop.
Therefore, we’re excited that BARBOUR and WOOD WOOD have jointly launched a renewed classic British waxed jacket. The Danes from WOOD WOOD have added subtle color blocking, strengthened outer pockets and added some leather elements. The iconographic style of the jacket, in which the whole generations of land gentry strolled through the forest, they have not changed.
Thus is the “Barbour X Wood Wood 10th Anniversary Jacket” not really a must-have – at least not if you already have a Barbour jacket in your closet.
Should someone have the audacity and, on the other hand, no such jacket, he should order one in the end of September in the Wood Wood-Onlineshop.
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
The german sportswear-manufcatorer PUMA is currently vying for a favour by RIHANNA. Rumours say that the enterprise from Herzogenaurach has offered the barbadian singer more than a million dollars, if she designs for PUMA
So far, so uninteresting.
In case that Rihanna accepts the offer, she would not only be a designer for PUMA, which has already been done by Beoncé’s sister Solange Knowles, but would also mean that she is not allowed to wear clothes by ADIDAS anymore from the moment of signing the contract, on. That is written in the contract between PUMA and Riri, if you want to believe some insiders.
We think that something like that is really great. On one side, because it is very amusing, that the enmity, which started in 1948, between ADIDAS and PUMA, is still on-going. On the other side, because we hope, that that goes along with Jeremy Scott losing his job as a designer for ADIDAS. Rihanna is one of the most consistent promoters of his horribly loud designs.

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
