#1531 It's all about the duffel coat

Photos: Life of the Jetsetter

So I know we're nearing summer and all, but up in the Northern Hemisphere, fall has just arrived. That means jackets. Lots of jackets. Glorious jackets. The best of the bunch is the duffel coat. Seen on many a runway this past January, the duffel coat hails from a town named Duffle in Belgium. Back in the Middle Ages, Duffle exported a sturdy cloth to England to be made into workwear for peasants. Fast forward a few centuries, and the British Navy adopted the jacket for its durability and ease of fastening. (Knowledge gleaned from reading Mr Classic – you should too.) I'm obsessed. Now it's just a matter of finding one that looks as good as Gucci – but for a more palatable price. Off to the opshops we go. The photo above is part of an editorial from Popeye magazine. It's fly. Check the rest below.

#1178 Diggy Simmons is fresh to def



Remember Diggy? I met him in New York last September. At the time I wrote,
"He's 14 years old, rich, famous and obsessed with fashion. The son of Rev Run from Run DMC and star of MTV reality show Run's House, Diggy has his own blog where he posts daily about his favourites in fashion, architecture and style. He's even coming out with his own clothing label (rumoured to be called Space Age) in the near future. I ran into Diggy sitting in the front row at menswear show Duckie Brown this afternoon. Standing at about 5'5" and looking fresh in a preppy Kanye West/Pharrell Williams inspired outfit (dark glasses, cardigan, shirt, bow tie, raw denim jeans, white Chucks and of course Louis Vuitton monogrammed cellphone wallet), Diggy was the quintessential child star. Poised, approachable, professional and more than happy to have his photo taken. The kid could throw out a toothy grin like the best of the supermodels backstage. The only difference - those supermodels never seem to have glistening (and I mean glistening) silver braces adorning their pearly whites."
