One of two highly anticipated new colourways of the recently (finally) released Adidas Trimm Star. The originals, released in the early 1970's helped put Adidas on the map, spawning their golden era and paving the way for many much loved models, this arguably one of their most hard to find and much craved originals. A classic, simple silhouette; brushed suede, 3 leather stripes, ghilly lacing and a sleek sole unit keeps these looking as fresh as ever.
This Dark Marine version is exclusive to Size? and will be released alongside another familiar looking colour combo in Argentina Blue and Black. Available Friday April 26th.

Clarks are pretty damn good at answering our prayers when it comes to bringing back cool, original and mostly forgotten models. Well, I'm not for one minute saying I pray for them, but you know...
A first look at two new models I'm pretty excited about, the original Caravan / Deep country shoe must be one of the most hard to find, seldom seen models there is. I'm sure loads reading would say that's probably a good thing - granted, they really are the craziest, ugliest most mental things in the world, but me personally, I love 'em! Scouring eBay, you'd be more likely to find those checked strides in the advert above. The Wallabee Ridge is the closest you'll get to them today, just look at that colour! OK they've lost their gypsy tagline aswell, but you're bound to get 'special shoes' comments from the boring clones out there, yeah, they are quite special aren't they?
And what about the Seam Trek, fucking hell. And that's swearing. It's like my two favourite shoes stuck together. I don't think there's much more this Clarks aficionado could ask for with them, maybe in suede too?
Both will be released in August.

Any regular reader or anyone who knows me, will know that lairy, oddball coats are always a personal favourite, always looking for that bit of quirkyness somewhere between what the Good Doc himself might wear and what Timmy Mallet may deem a bit too loud, that's the perfect balance.
This from Monitaly was just that, nice heavy cotton 'Aztec'; Ikat vibes going on, not for every day of course, but it was one of them I just had to have. Only went out for a Greggs pasty.
