I am obsessed with khaki at the moment. In fact, the year so far. It’s become a bit of an issue, in that, every lightweight jacket I own is khaki green. Which kind of limits my choices somewhat, colour wise. It’s also an issue when I end up wearing a khaki coloured top, because then there’s a whole load of too much green going on.  Still, love them I do! I, of course, own a shacket already, which I have literally worn to death this…

I don’t know what it is about a denim shirt, but it’s one of my little ‘things’. Especially a really battered, but still looks good, faded denim one. It just has that casual vibe about it.

Especially on my bloke. He very…
