The other day I had the pleasure of speaking to Jany Temime  –  award-winning costume designer for the new Bond film SPECTRE  –  about what men can learn from the way 007  dresses. We didn’t talk about the labels he wears in the movie – you can read about those elsewhere – but about what men can learn from Bond’s general style. If you want to read more (and discover how many pair of gloves Daniel had to be fitted with before the right ones were found) simply click on the pic above.

Want to freshen up your clothes before a night out? Here’s the perfect way to do it.

I love it when I come across genuinely useful products – ones that can actually improve your life in some way. This nifty Fragrance Liquid for Fabric from cult Japanese brand retaW is one of them.

Specially formulated for fabric it can be used directly on hats, scarves, jackets, overcoats, gloves, honking trainers, you name it, without causing the kind of damage that spraying eau de toilettes onto clothes can cause (staff at Abercrombie & Fitch take note).

This one, bizarrely named Evelyn (that’s the Japanese for you) is light and fresh with a zingy hint of bergamot and is antibacterial too It’s the perfect solution for when you’re going straight out from work and want to refresh your work togs. Your friends will still appreciate it if you acquaint yourself with soap and water now and then of course…
