War Field Wear Research has just dropped at London's Garbstore and nowhere else in the UK. The collection is based on military themes found in 1940's style Burmese army uniforms. The pick of the bunch are the double layered Indian organic cotton button down shirts. These utility style shirts feature a side opening chest pocket with lotus flower print. Think I prefer the khaki to the red.

Yes? Then you've just hit the jackpot in the form of this splendid and m o v i n g freestyle canoeing clip from 2007.
Admittedly, dapper Marc basically only has one move (build up an little speed and then spin the canoe) but I love thinking of what he's thinking about. Ignore the Yankie clapping and feel the romance of the lake art.
Here's more deets on freestyle canoeing for the newly converted:
American Freestyle canoeing is the art of paddling a canoe on flat water with perfect control of its movements. The canoe is usually leaned over to the side to help the boat turn sharply and efficiently and paddle strokes are taken on either side of the canoe depending on the individual move. Balance, paddle placement and turn initiation are a few keys to this control. Since the movements seem dance-like, some practice this art timed to music, which is the ultimate in control.

After so many dark days of supporting the Rs - which included witnessing footballing giants Vauxhall Motors beat the Rs on penalties - it really is quite something to think that the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham and Man Utd will be coming to W12 (for a beat-down) next season.
Promotion is all down to Yorkshire's finest Neil Warnock. Just 13 months ago he took over a club (again) flirting with relegation and proceeded to transform them into league winners. His undoubted masterstroke was the permanent signing of Moroccan maestro Taarabt. He may well be an utter brat but he is also the best player in the world not playing for Barcelona FA. Fact.
I could go on for days. I won't. Here's a round-up of a very special day in the club's history. Love and respect to the Row G, R block boys who have shared the pain.
Warnock praises players:
