We spent our evenings waiting for an announcement from Boris, whispers of something called a 'lockdown', swiftly followed by a rush to Boots for hand gel. And then, suddenly we're all 'at home whenever possible'. For many of us, that means taking over the kitchen table with a laptop and dressing our top half only for countless video call engagements. Others...

Why is a leather jacket so expensive?

The classic leather biker jacket style has been around for many years and without a doubt the question ‘Why is this leather jacket so expensive?” has probably popped into shoppers minds countless times.

Breaking the fashion rules in 2021

In May of 1963, they reached number one in the UK charts with, “Please, Please Me” and the rest, as they say, is history.
