Find out more from the presenter who has interviewed the likes of Snoop Dogg below and what he’s got his fashion eye on this season!

What’s on your shopping list this season?

Wow! This season first on the list is H By Hudson, Leather Brogue Boots I just got myself a pair. The level of detail is second to none, and I simply love the colour. These bad boys will go with anything and last forever. They represent all that is good about today’s culture without verging on East London hipster desperation.

Also you cant go wrong with leather boots –these are this seasons must.  With this, I add to my list Adidas high tops most recently tweeted about. These represent all things Velcro/ #90s #Olive and are super cool and can be matched with fitted guys joggers, skinny jeans and a plain T and or Jean jacket. YES Velcro high tops are back in a big way! You heard it here first.

My third addition is a black roll neck jumper; these were in years ago and now they’re back! And yes I’m adding this to this season’s list- Just putting it out there.

I’m also adding to the list finally- my Autumn/ Winter Black Francis Lambskin Leather Jacket – no more needs to be said!

What do you think is the thing that makes people’s style really stand out?

Uniqueness and colour- I’m all over olive greens/ and mustards at the moment. But it’s really all about how you wear it that makes the style.

What trends, if any are you loving this season?

Tapered fit smart cuffed joggers, topped with large t-shirt and possibly a sharp slim fitted tailored bomber jacket. I am not brave enough to wear cuffed joggers yet, but it will happen!

#NowPlaying at the Shopcade US Office This November

on

Here in the Shopcade US office there’s quite an eclectic mix of music taste between us. From indie rock to hip hop and everything in between there’s ALWAYS something playing on one of our Spotify playlists.

Now that it’s November, all ears are on songs that say goodbye to fall and hello to winter boot season. Not the OTK kind either. We’re talking about the rubber, ground gripping kind that beat the salt and sleet.
On the last few week before we’re totally bombarded with Christmas music – not that we mind – we’re all about getting down to the just-released jams from emerging artists, mainstream pop songs, and a few oldies-but-goodies while we work.
