A kind of disguise

We currently don’t have $1,129 to spend on a single pair of bottoms. That being said, we’re seriously considering betting the house on red to stand a chance at the Sunderland leather pants, the shining star of A Kind of Guise’s already brilliant A/W22 collection. Crafted from soft buffalo suede and designed in a relaxed 5-pocket denim construction, they’re a gorgeous buttery grail from the Wild West that we need ASAP.

A stylish watch collaboration inspired by the heritage of a stylish watch brand, in a sleek black-green colourway, with an elegant hidden “I AM PRESENT” lettering on the back. Too bad the Adsum x Timex MK1 sold out almost instantly – it would have made for a pretty stylish accessory.

When news broke that Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Will Levis had added mayonnaise to his morning coffee for good luck since a big win last season, we thought it was weird.
