Will Jaeger Come Back From Administration?


It’s a sad time for British fashion, 2 weeks ago Jaeger entered administration, and it’s said that up to 600 jobs could go. Will it be able to be saved?

You’ll know that from reading my blog I have been a fan of Jaeger for quite a while. I have so many shirts and tailored jackets from them, I got not one but two black Jaeger shirts several months ago, and I’ve got lots of knitwear, including some really nice cashmere jumpers from the brand too.

I really like the quality of the clothing, some say it’s not as good as previous, and many of the things aren’t actually made in the UK, but most of the things are of good quality, and easily matches up to what I consider to be it’s main competitors, which are Thomas Pink, Reiss and Ted Baker, especially for shirts. I always call this kind of clothing premium high street, as it’s usually quite a bit more than high street, especially now with fast fashion and the likes of Primark, H&M and the like, but less expensive than the higher end designer labels such as Burberry. However Jaeger used to see itself as that higher end label, but not as high as something you’d expect to find on Savile Row.

Jaeger has already been bought in 2012, and it went through some changes, most notionally the logo, which I actually don’t like, and much prefer the older, more traditional graphic.

Hopefully they will come up with a strategy which will work for the business as well as producing some great clothing.

What To Wear With Black Jeans

What To Wear With Black Jeans - How To Style Black Denim

I love black jeans! Last time I was looking at what to wear with a white shirt, and since you loved that guide so much I have to talk about denim, in particular one colour which anyone can style, black. If you’ve already read my 5 pairs of jeans you should own, you’ll know that a pair of black jeans is an essential item for your wardrobe. They’re versatile, smart and really stylish. One of the main benefits of a dark colour denim is that they look more classy, more upmarket and can be both dressed up and dressed down, depending on what your own style and look is.

But what do you wear with them, and how do you style them? I am going to give a couple of ideas on how you can style your pair of black denim for all occasions, smart and the more casual.

Get all the details on each style below.

Luxury Loungewear – Pyjamas For Stylish Gentleman

Derek Rose Loungewear - Michael 84 Fashion Blog

When do PJ’s or pyjamas become loungewear or nightwear? It’s probably when you reach get into your twenties, and then once in your thirties, you really should be embracing the comfort and luxury of some really fine clothing to wear for bed, or even when you’re just lounging around (hence the name).

Quite a while back I got some really high end loungewear, I think it’s been on the blog before but I’ve never really written a proper blog post about it. Since we’re in Winter and it’s been cold, it’s probably a good time to feature it on the blog. It’s from Derek Rose, and it’s something which I really love to wear. Now, these are not traditional PJs or “Formal nightwear” as it’s called because it’s posh, this is more for relaxing. I associate the more traditional PJ style with two age groups; Really little kids, or really old men. In our 20’s and 30’s and even 40’s, where does that leave us? With loungewear.

Men’s Fashion Trends 2017: Pink For Spring

Pink Sweatshirt For Men

Spring has arrived, and with it, it’s brought a new fashion trend. Several weeks ago I read that the pantone colour of the year 2017 was green, specifically a green they call Greenery, which is quite a dirty, mid-to-light green, quite a solid colour. There’s been lots of fashion produced in this colour for this season too, as well as other shades of green, signalling it could be big for Spring, but for me, it’s not. The big trend for Spring, at least the first half, is pink!

Specifically a light or pale pink. I’ve seen a couple of pieces of clothing and fashion in this colour, I already own a few bits and pieces too, and I love it. A really deep or bold pink can be hard to wear and difficult to pull off, with the colour being seen as a feminine option usually. Pale shades are synonymous with Springtime, with grey, white, beige, red, blue, green and yellow all being worn, you can add pink to that list too.

England Away Kit For 2017 Unveiled – All Blue

England squad debut 2017 away kit

Nike and England have unveiled the latest away kit for 2017, and will be debuted against Germany on Wednesday 22nd March. The colour of the kit is a navy with varying shades, and I think it could be the best looking away kit for a while.

As with everything Nike these days, it’s a plain sleek style, with the whole kit comprising of matching coloured shorts and socks, with a silver Nike swoosh and light blue star above the classic England three lions badge. The shirt will be available to buy from from 22nd March. The kit is being modelled by England players Raheem Sterling, Gary Cahill, Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.

Nike have released the kit with a launch by Marcus Rashford and an essay for The Players Tribune, which provides an honest look at Marcus’ relationship with the England team and the shirt. You can read the full essay here at The Players Tribune. Rashford talks about his England debut, scoring his goal against Australia, Euro 2016 disappointment and the influence that Wayne Rooney has had throughout his footballing life.

What do you think of the new kit? Check out more pictures below.

The Adidas Calabasas By Yeezy – Coming Soon?

Adidas Yeezy Calabasas Coming Soon

When you think of the latest in street wear and cities the first one you think of is the city of Calabasas right?

The rumoured soon-to-be latest drop from the world of Yeezy are these trainers; The Adidas Calabasas, or the Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase are being talked about by sneaker heads in the past couple of days, and could be the cheapest from the Adidas/Kanye West collaboration yet. The price is rumoured to be around $120, which could be <£100, that is of course if you can even get your hands on a pair.

The design comes from a tennis trainer, an all-white design with three stripes and some perforated design on the upper and toe. It has the Calabasas logo branding in gold, along with an Adidas logo on the upper.

I think that the trainers do look nice, but that’s because they remind me of one of my favourite trainers from back in the 90’s which have enjoyed a comeback recently…

Reebok Classic or Yeezy Adidas Calabasas?

The Reebok Classic! These look quite familiar, the way that Adidas have done the logo in an almost identical way does not really help them distinguish the trainers from each other.

What do you think of the Adidas Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase?
