And now for something completely different… Keen is a company from Portland who make sandals like nothing we’ve seen before.

Made using their ingenious ‘two cords and a sole’ design, their patented Uneek sandals are ideal for seaside scrambling and lake-based hijinks, and due to the way those cords wrap around your feet, they’re pretty comfortable too.

These things are ridiculously popular in Japan — and for good reason, if you’re after a well-thought-out pair of sandals, these are just the ticket.

As far as mixed doubles teams go, not many are as stylish as Fred Perry and Margaret Howell.

Just look at these polo shirts they’ve just made together.

Lightweight pique cotton… slightly oversized fit… fancy tonal laurel wreath… the tastiest tennis collaboration since strawberries and cream?

Like striped trainers?

Love the Swiss city of Bern?

Looking to combine your two seemingly disparate passions into one easy to wear trainer?

You might want to look at these adidas Berns.

First launched as part of the much loved Island Series, these are finally set to return.

Keep that alarm set for 00:01 on Saturday the 18th of May.

To talk about Carhartt solely as a workwear brand in this day and age is sort of like saying that Honda just make motorbikes.

Yep, Carhartt still make some mighty tough work-shirts, but they also do some of the finest climbing pants going, and their quarter-zips are the perfect modern day track-and-field accoutrement.

Workwear? Sportswear? Life-wear?

Whatever it is, we’re big fans.
