We're beginning to make that seasonal transition from summer to autumn. Along with a seasonal change comes a change in colour. Nature, clothing, food, and drink all adapt aesthetically according to the season. Think of an ombre effect; yellows through to orange, down to reds, burgundy, and brown. Whilst the weather becomes colder, Autumn into Winter is jam-packed with holidays, traditions, and festivities that we can all look forward to celebrating in style. There is no better way of welcoming in the colder air than with a good drink. Whether alcoholic or not, we turn to a much warmer tipple, which we can cosy up with by a fire as the nights draw in earlier, or to party into the night with Halloween, bonfire, and Christmas festivities.
The Roaring Twenties was a time when many people defied prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards. It was a period when society was returning to normal after the First World War and the general mood was positive. This decade was a time when fashion took a turn from the conservative, old styles into a new era of fashion.
100 years on and many of the most popular men’s dress styles today are still modeled from the fashion of that decade. Heavy wool dark coats, vintage tweed suits, newsboy flat caps, tweed waistcoats, and penny collar shirts are some of the timeless garments that are becoming super trendy in the UK thanks to the Peaky Blinders drama. It’s the British drama series based on a gangster family after the First World war lead by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) as they try to run the city with their corrupt activity. The programme hasn’t only taken over our TV screens though, it’s also influenced our fashion sense and inspired many themed bars and restaurants.
The Oxford Dictionary describes a belt as “A strip of leather or other material worn, typically round the waist, to support or hold in clothes or to carry weapons.”The need to hold one's pants up has made belts indispensable for men since the 16th century.
However if you think men's belts are just for keeping trousers up, think again. Brown or black, rugged or designer, a good leather belt makes a real fashion statement. It adds a personal touch to your outfit, creates a clear distinction between your top and bottom half and ties an outfit together.
SageBrown belts have recently featured in a photoshoot for a new collection of Henry Arlington Shirts. This has inspired us to write a blog about belts and their importance to complete an outfit.

31, Trinity Street, Cambridge, is the location of our new shop that opened at the beginning of November 2108. The word "trinity" is derived from Latin trinitas, meaning 'the state of being 3' or a group of three people or things. As this is our 3rd shop, it seems only right to do some research of this fascinating city, its universities and history.
Last November, just one day after Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement was announced, the palace confirmed the first details about the wedding. In a break with royal tradition, which usually sees couples marry on a weekday, the wedding will be held on Saturday 19th May at noon in St George's Chapel, Windsor. This is the same place where Prince Harry was christened in 1984.The ceremony will last one hour, after which Harry and Meghan will take part in a carriage procession around Windsor. Afterwards a reception in St. George's Hall will allow the newly weds to toast their union with their guests.

Carrying coins has it's advantages and disadvantages. Paying for public transport, car parking, street entertainers, supermarket trolleys or paying for the occasional beer are made easier if you have a small stash of coins but it can be heavy, bulky, dirty and noisy.
This begs the question what to do with coins? Do you leave them to jingle in your pocket informing everyone of your every move or invest in a functional accessory to contain them?
Finding the perfect purse is not as simple as some might think and is an age old problem for men and women. It often depends on your lifestyle, what you are going to put inside it and how and where you are going to hold or store it.
The perfect purse can range from a cute little kiss clasp purse that sits discreetly in your handbag to something large enough for notes, coins and keys. Here we review some of the best selling coin purses on offer at SageBrown to help you make your decision.

What is Bridle Leather?
Bridle leather is soft and supple calf hide that has been heavily oiled, conditioned, and finished with a wax sealant to preserve it’s appearance and physical integrity.
