Finely tailored, provocative clothes

Social Suicide is a clothing label started by a couple of guys from Brunel University and the Royal College of Art, both of which I attended. Extremely beautifully made suits with a twist.

Graphic Novels

Those of you who are remotely into the more serious end of comics, titles like The Watchmen, Ghost World, From Hell etc. , will love this book. Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life is beautifully structured. Each chapter deals with a theme, going in depth on the relevant "classic" graphic novels, and then suggesting related ones. It's a great source for new matinal to read. Can't recommend it enough. . . if you're into that kind of thing.

I'm a little sceptical, myself, that this will work for everyone. Some people seem to NEED clutter to function.
