Handbags, All Colours of the Rainbow

Rainbows are a symbol of hope in many cultures. They appear as perfect arcs, often during a rainstorm when the sun shines onto water droplets, shattering its white light into an array of brilliant colours. (They are actually full circles, but to see the half that falls below the horizon, you would have to view the rainbow from the sky, such as in a plane.) In Christian culture, a rainbow promises better times to come – the Abrahamic god sent one to Noah after the great flood as a sign that people could go forth and multiply without fear of another calamitous drowning. Rainbows are frequently represented in Western art and culture, as a sign of hope and promise of better times to come.

Overlapping with Chinese New Year is Valentine’s day on February 14th and in the words of John Paul Young, “Love is in the air”! With local and global restrictions in place, Valentine’s Day may be a little less conventional this year and dinner dates and cinema trips may end up being takeaways and movie nights in, but there are no excuses not to send a gift to someone you love! We’ve included a few of our favourite gift ideas for Valentine’s Day in this blog, perfect for him and for her!

British Heritage, Peaky Blinder Style

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. 

Belt Up and Style Up!
Belt Up and Style Up!

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.

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. It gets its name from what it was originally created for - a bridle - the straps on a horse's head, to connect to the reins. It is very strong and long lasting, but more importantly, it is very beautiful and naturally produced.
