:: Choker - DIY ::

If you could fit Sports, 70's, 90's, Tailoring & a bit of leg into an outfit I guess this would be it. The weather dictates that multiple layers must be worn pretty much daily, but every so often the rain will break and allow a flicker of Spring to hedge it's way in.

The appearance of the gym bag was due to my trip into the elements being purely for an athletic motive - going to the gym. Keeping true to my roots, and love of all things British-made ( long standing readers may know of my love for Dr Martens, British Independents, English Subcultures and, well, scones ) -  this gym bag, aptly name 'JimBag' ( clever sods ) is designed, manufactured and sold in Great Britain. Mary Portas would be proud. The reason I wanted to feature the bag that many a blogger would shy away from snapping in an outfit post, was simply because the design of this bag stops it from being pigeonholed as 'just a throw-away gymbag' - it's cool, wellmade and monochrome. Happy Days.
Oh, and the first people in the world to rock something from this brand was Beyonce and little Ivy. Another Manc brand doing us proud.
