BOND AND BEYOND: Sir Sean Connery at 85

August 25, 2015


Today is Sir Sean Connery's 85th birthday, and to celebrate, I thought I'd take a look back at Connery's relationship with James Bond, the character that made him famous.

READY FOR ACTION – Anthony Sinclair unveil their first ready-to-wear Conduit Cut suit

May 7, 2015


We’ve all dreamed of being Bond. Admit it, you’ve done the gunbarrel in the mirror and uttered the immortal line in your best Sean Connery accent. Sadly, for many of us, the thrill of the adventure, the exotic locations, the fast cars and beautiful women are all tantalizingly out of reach, forever consigned to fantasy. […]

The Prodigal Guide

February 16, 2011


The Prodigal Guide is one of my favourite blogs and I’m very happy to announce that they have invited me to become a regular contributor. For those of you unfamiliar with The Prodigal Guide, it is a lifestyle magazine that looks mainly at cars, films, food, gadgets and watches (lots of watches, actually) – so, not […]

On top Down Under.

December 18, 2010


This is just a brief word to those of you who have been following this blog but have wondered what the hell I’ve been doing with myself. Certainly, I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties, but with good reason: I have been indulging in the delights of Australia, enjoying the sunshine (far more so because it […]

Blame it on sunshine.

July 5, 2010


Hello all! Once again I find myself apologising for a leave of absence. However, who can resist the lure of sunshine and general good weather? It’s not all been lolling around in the sun though; there’s been plenty to occupy me in these last few weeks. I’ve taken a trip to beautiful Vancouver BC to […]

Re: Tweeting. Making a # of it @ Twitter.

May 13, 2010


It seems that the importance of social networking passes many of us by. I know plenty of people who are either incapable of understanding the complexities of it, or despise it with a passion reserved for the killers of their first born. A friend of mine, who runs his own very successful communications business, is […]

Con-Dem Nation. The state of British politics.

May 13, 2010


So we enter into a historic era in British politics. I’ve tried to keep my political views off this blog, mainly because I didn’t think the way I choose to vote has any relevance to how I review a hotel or wrote a feature. However, with such a huge change in the political landscape, how […]

Spring loaded.

April 26, 2010


Ah, Spring is upon us well and truly once again. Blossom flits on the breeze like confetti, the wood pigeons’ coo echos on the wind and Londoners optimistically slip on t-shirts and shorts as the sun recovers from Winter’s barrage, like a slow-mo Rocky Balboa pulling himself off the ropes in round 12. One thing […]

French leave.

March 14, 2010


Hello and welcome to the new format double o’ nothing. As you can see, I’ve opted for a more suitable theme and changed the banner. I hope that this will make the site easier to navigate and more enjoyable to read. My apologies to those of you who were awaiting updates, but, as I have spent […]

“Innit” a shame.

February 21, 2010


Recently, I have become increasingly alarmed by the proliferation of stupidity that seems to be so prevalent in the World these days. This seems to be manifest in the way in which the language is being so radically altered. It is easy to point fingers and lay the blame, but who is really responsible for […]
