The Flâneur

“The crowd is his domain, as the air is that of the bird or the sea of the fish. His passion and his creed is to wed the crowd. For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate observer, it’s an immense pleasure to take up residence in multiplicity, in whatever is seething, moving, evanescent and infinite.” … Keep Reading

Get Tweed. Wear Tweed. Drive.

in News by

Earlier this year, three brave, intrepid and immaculately attired chaps set off on an epic 3,000 mile journey across the Indian Subcontinent. This might not sound so remarkable, with today’s efficient transport methods, except that these foolhardy fellows relied not on rail, motor car or internet transfer, but that vehicle in which gentlemen generally move betwixt bordello and bazaar – the humble Tuk-tuk. Their journey took Edd Rushton, James Kilkenny and Deniz Hassan from the southern tip of India all the way up the East coast and into Bangladesh, via the Bay of Bengal, and into the foothills of the…

Not Really Made in England

in News by

Soho tailor Tony Lutwyche has launched a sartorial campaign to stop manufacturers labelling products ‘Made in England’ when they have really been made abroad. He plans to petition 10 Downing Street and demands the Government acts quickly to protect the standards and integrity of English tailoring, and other goods, by prohibiting any product not made entirely in this country from displaying the ‘Made in England’ label. “This week,” said Mr. Lutwyche, “John Lewis was forced to stop selling falsely labelled ‘Made in England’ suits for £350, but the net spreads much wider. Other leading clothing brands are still selling inaccurately…

The Talented Mr. Rodley

in News by

A gang of international criminals, spearheaded by an ersatz lord named Hugh Rodley, came within a whisker of stealing £229 million from a City bank. After months of preparation, a team of Belgian hackers working for Mr. Rodley stole into the offices of Sumitomo in October 2004. They made 21 transfers of up to £40 million each from the accounts of high-profile customers including Casio, Toshiba and Nomura Asset Management. Rodley then attempted to transfer the stolen money into accounts of his own in Cyprus and the Seychelles. But the hackers had made a tiny error involving the touch of…

Lithuanian Premier Fined for Smoking Pipe

in News by

The Prime Minister of Lithuania, Gediminas Kirkilas, has been issued a fine for smoking his pipe in a public place. After enjoying a few lungfuls of heady Latakia in a bar in the Baltic Sea port town of Klaipeda, he apologised to the owner, saying, “I’m to blame for this. I simply forgot that we can no longer smoke inside bars. I will cover this fine for the bar.” The fine is believed to be somewhere in the region of 1,000 litas (£222 Sterling). Smoking in public places, including cafes, restaurants and bars, has been banned in Lithuania since January 1,…
