In the plans for my redesigned man cave one of the key features is a working gramophone, One of the key parts of having a Gramophone is having the right vinyl collection to play on it. I plan to keep the vinyl collection pretty tight so here are the 20 greatest albums of all time (according to me) that I’ll limit my collection to.
The Definitive Blues Brothers Collection
Pink Floyd- Atom Heart Mother
Johnny Cash- At Folsom Prison
Iron Maiden- Brave New World
The Rat Pack- Live And Dangerous
Donald Byrd Quintet- Parisian Thoroughfare
Roger Waters- Pro’s and Con’s of Hitchhiking
Misfits- American Psycho
Paul Anka- Rock Swings
Hugh Laurie- Let Them Talk
A Twist In The Myth- Blind Guardian
Paul Simon- Graceland
Emilie Autumn- Opheliac
The Glenn Miller Orchestra- The Glenn Miller Story
One of the best items in my wardrobe is actually a fairly recent addition, and with the slight inkling of the possible hint of sunshine I feel that its time to bust out the Boating Jacket.
A boating jacket is both smart and light weight, and can be worn as both a slightly more formal attire (ie with a tie) and as some sort of smart casual piece (I only put this in theory, I wont ever try it in practice). But lets face it in this day and age (because who goes to a regatta) they stand out, it adds a bit of colour to your wardrobe. And to be honest this is something I’ve been talking about a fair bit lately, formal men’s clothes have a tendency to be either black, navy or grey, what is wrong with injecting a little bit of colour into your sartorial game?
But the other thing that really works about a proper boating Jacket is that they are usually made out of some sort of cotton or linen so are actually pretty light to wear out and about, so you can look good without having to worry about sweating your proverbial’s off.
So go get one. I recommend checking out the range from Samuel Windsor here.
