Le Swine | Shoreditch Guide

Posted by 2

When we first heard of Le Swine and their self-professed "best bacon butty in town" we feared the boldness of their statement. Would this be another claim too large for any one street food van? A good amount of bacon sandwiches later and you've probably worked out our thoughts on the whole situation. It turns out the bacon butty is in good hands. James, the man behind Londons best bacon butty knows a thing or two about food. He worked under Bruno Loubet (chef extraordinaire) in Clerkenwell for five years. It's fair to say he has earnt his stripes. Though...

Earn Your Stripes

Posted by 2

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed a slight obsession with stripes this summer.  You've probably also guessed that we are loving it. There is nothing like adding a bit of nostalgia to your look with a retro stripe or a bit of Ivy style with a striped oxford. That is not to mention some of the stripe wearing icons of days gone by, greats like James Dean, Pablo Picasso and of course Dennis the Menace. In celebration of all things stripy we've done a round up of some our season favourites. Without further a do here...

SEVERAL; SS17 at London Collections

Posted by 2

The Several SS17 show at London Collection Mens was another nod to times gone by. Set in a yellow and white cafe, the show offered a retro palette even Wes Anderson would envy. The brands attention to detail did not fall short at the clothing. Vintage magazines and papers alongside toast on the table all served as parts of the Several time machine. Furthermore the clothing featured was just as much a tip of the hat to Britain of post war times. Utilitarian work wear teamed with the aspirational trench coat & sunglasses blended industrial styles of the early 20th...

Posted by 2

Attention To Detail: The Work Jacket

Posted by 2

For any of you with a keen eye you might have noticed we are partial to a work Jacket at Number Six. Now I can think of many things to thank the French for like French bread, the 1998 world cup winning squad and mime artists, however Work Jackets have to top that list. The History: Originating in France, the work jacket was a staple of the French countryside. The most well known form of the work jacket is the "Bleu de Travail" jacket, this is the iconic jacket with heavy indigo dye. This jacket became prominent in France and throughout...

Sunglasses - Effortlessly Cool

Posted by 2

Minimal effort with maximum effect sounds like a dream to us (when it comes to getting dressed anyway). With it getting hotter who couldn't do with some tricks to conserve energy. Bob Dylan, The Blues Brothers, James Dean and Lour Reed are all testament to what a good pair of sunglasses can do for a man. [caption id="attachment_6324" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Bob & that other cool guy Andy in Sunglasses...[/caption] It's a hard one to get right but we like to think once you've found the right pair of sunnies they'll be with you for life. So as a gentle nudge...

OTD - 30 April 1993 - World Wide Web

Posted by 2

The World Wide Web: Seeing as we are coming to the end of the month, we thought we'd see it out with an On This Day. We are a techy bunch of people here at Number Six (...well some of us) and we thought it quite fitting that we should bring you an on this day which is tech related. The 30th of April 1993 saw CERN put World Wide Web Software in the public domain. That's right it's been 23 years since the internet was made available for everyone to use.
