More Bargain fodder i'm afraid, this time coming from stalwart Sinister Delicious favourite, You Must Create.
I remember driving to the beautiful rural town of Monmouth many moons ago to snare the hounds tooth hooded windbreaker that YMC brought out the same season as this.
Being a little less wiser and a little more broke, I couldn't stretch to the Mac nor did I feel comfortable walking around in one, but then time changes you I guess and when I saw this going for a pittance on eBay I was compelled to snap it up.
It's hooded cohort went a long time ago, shipped off somewhere in the world to an eager young tyke just finding his feet with his clobber - that's what I derived from it anyway.
Anyhow, I present the Hounds Tooth YMC summer mac... Another chunk of bargain that just can't be missed.
Pretty damn dandy for forty bar!

I can't speak for everyone but I feel it's an important factor that among the oranges, reds and greens, hoods, zips, waxed cottons, cashmere's and most intricate treasures of our wardrobe, there's a strong foundation of the basics and classics.
I've been a little quiet on the buying front of late, channeling my funds into other avenues and pursuits, but then I've always got a few extra quid to spend when there's a bargain to be had and I've always managed to sniff them out.
Take these classic button down Ralph Lauren Oxfords I copped for at the weekend - I had the both of them for £80, which isn't a bad days work, bolstering up my shirt selection while I was at it which is something I've been meaning to do in preparation for summer anyway, so it was bit of a winner.
Although nothing ground breaking or fancy, these are a typical, classic button down design with the added inclusion of a button flap pocket which is a nice little detail to boot. It makes for a perfect shirt both for smarter or more formal occasions.
With one crisp light blue and the other a cheeky shade of lilac, this pair will get a good wear this summer no doubt and just goes to show that there's quality garments to be had when you're not looking to take your overdraft into deep space nine in the quest of a tasty wardrobe.

The Boogie Cartel is now celebrating one year with our first birthday party on May 12th 2012 at the Horse & Groom in Shoreditch, London.
Right where it all started for us.
And to celebrate we have a few thing's up our sleeve's but as well as that we are giving out our edit's free to download.
This week we are sharing 3 Madonna edit's that were planned for a vinyl release but seeing as some original production work will be seeing the light of day soon we thought we would be kind and give out our edit's, the first one being a sleazy rework of Lucky Star.
Hope you enjoy it.

On day's like this when it's all a bit chilled and slow I love to just sit down and listen through a few mix tape's and slow jam's and stumbled over this Elektrik Soul guest mix which has been perfect this last hour.
So if you like your soul and beat down mixes this is well worth a listen.

This weather, crazy right? Last week we were basking in hot climes, this week there's a whitewash of snow. You'd be forgiven to think the end of the world was coming or something, still, if it is then I intend to go out in style and lots of it.
To help me on my way for the Summer months I invested in a couple of essential tees and I can safely say it was money put to good use, but then these things are important and a heavy supply of decent t-shirts comes top of the agenda when the mercury rises.
Moving onto business, there's a couple of boxes that need to be ticked when I'm searching out possible tee purchases. This APC number ticked every box and earned a big fat shiny star for its efforts. Killer ain't it? Proper ace stuff from the Parisian label and definitely in line for a good hammering when the sun's high in the sky, to simplify - I'll wear this to death. For sixty bucks I can't complain and dare I say it, I doubt I'll find something more suited to my tastes again. Ever.
You can't go far wrong when your throw some Ralph into the mixer and when you add hints of nautical chic into the equation you've got a tasty sum that'll make me part with the Queens head. Another great example of the perfect Summer tee. Nice and light, ace quality and spot on for a mid morning totter down to the green with your disposable BBQ in tow. Another that I'll wear to death and a timeless classic - which is pretty much the epitome of Ralph Lauren in my eyes.
Last but not least I took a 40 bar swipe at this tasty little Penfield number. Unfortunately, Penfield seems to have a stigma attached to it after being completely raped by the masses over the past two years but when they bring out simple, quality garments like this I'll always revert back with my cash. A lot's said about the standard of quality in mass produced items, but hand on heart I can honestly say that for 40 quid you wont do better.
Aside from the fact that it's striped, there's some nice detail on this that make it perfect for slotting in a Summer wardrobe and along with it's new stable mates, makes up a pretty ace trio of tees ready to get busted out when the weather decides what it's doing.
