We have been going through our archives recently as we are currently working on a book about Burro that will be published in the Autumn. A friend dug out this grey leather jacket that he bought from us "years ago",well it's nineteen years to be precise, it was from winter 1992 and was called the Paul Newman jacket, it is still in remarkably good nick.
Black and Navy is without doubt one of the sharpest colour combinations for winter, from uniforms to nineties Gucci ,Yamamoto and Comme des Garcons it's invariably cool and moody. Amazing then that people still take the time to ask if it's ok to wear them together- don't bother googling the big question we've wasted time doing that and there are 9,170,000 results !
It's an easy look to put together, more interesting than head to toe black but equally slinky. Think stormy seas and midnight sky, try indigo jeans/ black jumper, black shirt/navy cardigan ,black suit/ navy shirt and tie.

They've just put out one of the album's best tracks as a single with a fab video which is a sort of 70's biker homage with a really cool twist. They're touring the UK from the end of January:
26th January / Newcastle Academy
27th January / Glasgow Academy
28th January / Birmingham Academy 1
30th January / Bristol Academy (sold out)
31st January / Leeds Academy 1
1st February / Manchester Academy 1
3rd February / London Brixton Academy
4th February / Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion
We're thinking that the deco splendour of the Bexhill Pavillion might be a good option if juxtaposition is your thing. Click here to see the video: Band of Horses
