Don’t let Tom Hiddleston cradling Taylor Swift on a rocky beach be the most searing image of the actor in 2016. Instead, see him dress super sharply in some well-fitted 1960s nihilism in High-Rise.

Coffee is complex. It immediately conjures up ideas of morning cups of fuel, rich taste and a plethora of preferences. The act of grinding coffee itself is full of mystery and myth. This week we met Glenn and Sam of @eighthirty coffee who spend most of their day working magic with the dark bean.

Taking cues from what would have featured heavily within a RNZAF environment, our latest concept store is now open - Barkers "Hangar" Palmerston North. This store holds a number of our award winning design features, and pulls inspiration from the Manawatu's rich history as the home of the Royal New Zealand Air Force Base, Ohakea, which has operated there since 1939. Not only this, but we've built a brand new @barkersgroomroom instore too. . . . . #barkersmenswear #lifeinstyle #palmerstonnorth #hangar #airforce
