beCOS

Up north, in a city whose technological innovations range from the spinning jenny and the intricate ship canal, creating the catalyst for the industrialisation of Britain (Boring!). This in turn shaped our beloved city's landscape with engineering jewels such as the cotton mills and grand Victorian warehouses.  Even with such beauty, albeit grey (beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Pfff.) and historical importance (minus the slave trade) us northern scum are deprived of many a sartorial delight that our Southern counterparts take pleasure in. My point – I know, I tend to waffle! H&M’s - COS and its goodies are not available to us common folk, yes the internet is an option but I wish to savor and shower myself in all its glory. Therefore, I gave it the attention is so deserves during my recent trip to Berlin. Disappointed, No! Its aesthetically pleasing layout and its original Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair (willing me to rest my achy feet) tricked my simple brain into thinking I was gracing the isles of a boutique rather than a high street clone. Regrettably, I only purchased one item but I am on the prowl for more…

Nice choice, I really dig the collar and the pocket. I'm so used to seeing what feels like the same denim shirt everywhere (which I admit I also am into) with a regular pointed collar (not sure of the actual name) and square pockets and it's nice to see something different.
