A chronicle of people, places, happenings, and creations we admire.


Colin Firth applies his stoicism and dry wit to recruit a wayward, but capable youth to join the Kingsman, a covert branch of her Majesty's Secret Service. (see what I did there?) Draped in the full Savile Row kit, a brilliant costume collaboration with London retailers Mr. Porter promises to add a luxurious sheen to the upcoming film. The cast includes acting heavyweights Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes) and Welsh upstart Taron Egerton as "Eggsy", Firth's character's potential young charge.  Samuel L. Jackson, seeming to channel both Mike Tyson and Russell Simmons(!) is the predictably cool but schizophrenic nemesis in this action packed spy-adventure premiering February 13th. 

Head over to Mr. Porter
