Each week our Meet Bernard team will let you know their favorite looks and give you a snipet into their world with a small Q&A. Following from last week where store manager, Sean, went for the Marty McFly inspired look, store owner, Laura’s gone for something just as good, if not a little warmer. Take note men, women know what they want in a man…
Over almost a century and a half, Brooks England has grown from a small workshop to a byword in quality craftsmanship. Back in 1865, John Boultbee Brooks left his hometown of Hinckley in Leicestershire with just £20 in his pocket.
He headed for Birmingham, where in 1866 he established a business in horse harnesses and general leather goods in Great Charles Street under the name JB Brooks & Co. In 1878, the unfortunate death of Mr Brooks’ horse led to a stroke of inspiration. Unable to afford another horse, he borrowed a bicycle in order to commute to work. He found the seat so uncomfortable that he vowed to do something about it.
On 28 October 1882, Mr Brooks filed his first saddle patent. Waddling cyclists everywhere rejoiced and the new product was a roaring success. Soon, Bernard will have his very own saddle from our friends a Brooks England. These will make a perfect Christmas gift for any man who values his rear and wants to look good while racing towards his destination…

You can now discover the beauty of authentic vintage 8mm film. iSupr8 is a video recorder which grades each pixel based on exposure adding old school effects and film-burn. The resulting film becomes a unique and retro masterpiece.
Keeping the 8mm movement alive is what iSupr8 is about. It’s not just a fun novelty app, it is an effort to revive and increase awareness of a commercially dying format to a new generation, as well as a production tool for filmmakers seeking an authentic, vintage look.
While developing iSupr8, a majority of the time and energy was spent making sure that the colour grade was as authentic as possible. No filters or cheap overlays in the coloring process.
Here’s two examples of what you can actually do:
