It is with great pleasure that we were a part of Sir Tom Baker's inaugural catwalk show held at the infamous 100 Club. The show has been voted by GQ magazine as one of the top ten highlights of London Fashion Week. We have added a few pictures to give you a taste of the rock 'n' roll tailoring and shoe making.

A night in delight for all Jeffery-West Reprobates is the DVD release of Dom Hemingway. Jude Law stars as the master safe cracker with a loose canon personality
Following his release from prison after serving time to protect his boss for a job that went bad, Dom is back on the London streets wih his Partner Dickie (played by the fantastic Richard E Grant) with the urge for revenge, justice and a belief that he is a super hero, a cocktail of carnage is guaranteed. Check out Jude's swagger in his black Rochester Keefs, which we are reliably informed by a film insider were the only footwear this character could and would wear. The two are a roguish match made in hell.
We are also excitedly awaiting the new album "Great Western Valkyrie" from our good friends Rival Sons. Due out in June we have a sneak peak of the album cover with the boys looking wonderfully dapper or is it dangerous in their Jeffery-Wests. In this shot definite contenders for our Rogues Gallery.

In the latest edition of Square Mile magazine based in the City, London's Financial district, you will find a rather good interview with our very own Guy West.
Written by the fantastic Mike Gibson it initially explores the early years of the brand and how it has since remained true to its original ethos; "Life is too short to wear boring shoes". Exploring the City store we discover it's flamboyance and decadence, a place of refuge for City workers to shrug off the conservatism of their day to day and indulge in something a little different...if they dare!

We are always keen to watch or listen to almost anything about tales of indulgence and excess so with immense enjoyment watched Hans Fjellestad film 'Sunset Strip' www.sunsetstripthemovie.com
The film has many fantastic stories and anecdotes from characters that come straight from the who's who list of Hellraisers, dating back to the Strips inception during the wild 1920's.
Mr Rourke shares some great memories with the LA tattoo legend Mark Mahony, and there is a fantastic shot of Mr Rourke's Rochester Keef boots, by the looks of them they too have been privy to some serious action !
