R&E Journal | High Summer + Dream Developments

Ever since Back to the Future first hit the big screens in '85, the hoverboard has been at the forefront of our daily-commute-levitation daydreams. Exactly thirty years later (seriously, it's been thirty years), Lexus has come through. Working with a team of scientists from IFW Dresden and evico GmbH, Lexus have recently concluded a high successful testing stage in Barcelona, courtesy of pro skateboarder and hoverboard test rider Ross McGouran and here, High Snobiety show us just HOW it works. We're pretty excited. 

Whilst we like to think we know a thing or two about what should be adorning our backs this season, it's never a bad thing to cross-reference with what the big (fashion) dogs are saying too. Fortunately, our trusty-worthy friends over at Fashion Beans are on the ball, and have compiled a handy list of the top high-street menswear trends for Summer 2015, and we're pleased to say that monochrome, printed short-sleeve shirts and a lightweight bomber are all on our list too. Constructed from a light cotton canvas, our Calshot Bomber is available in two colours and now only £82.50 in our end of season sale

If you're after a high-summer tipple to impress your friends and your taste-buds, then Genteel Flair's Blackberry Whiskey Smash recipe is the one. Simple to make, but does the job! Last BBQs of the summer... lets do this. 

Each month, Dallas based Need curates and sells a limited collection of product - including clothing, literature, furniture, artwork, coffee, and so forth - for the modern discerning gentleman.

Collections are coupled with independent journalism, editorial photography, illustrations, and film, which align perfectly to showcase menswear must-haves for every occasion. If you take a look at their latest offering Around Town - a collection based around a day in the life of a modern commuter, and featuring our popular Tain Slim-Fit Chinos, you'll see just why we're proud of our trans-Atlantic comrades! 

Although David Evans first started his much-admired menswear blog Grey Fox to demonstrate that fashion & style doesn't have to cease after the age of 30, it's fair to say that these days, guys from across the age-spectrum (who share a similar passion for quality menswear and classic styling with a contemporary twist) benefit from David's words of wisdom. This month, we're pleased to see that David has expanded this project even further, with the addition of a personal styling service for readers, in collaboration with Sartoria Lab. Read all about it here.  

And last but not least, this month we're turning our Pinterest wanderlust into a reality by packing up our supplies and heading for the great outdoors... at least until the Autumn chills creep in anyway. All you need is a comfy, sweatshirt from our summer sale, good company... and an even better whiskey.
