For those about to rock, we salute you. As does this print from Pop Chart Lab.

Leather Fisherman’s Vest by Shakuhachi


One of the lesser seen retro trends in mainstream fashion is glam and punk rock, for obvious reasons thanks to the seventies scene's penchant for the occasionally ridiculous. But with a resurgance in the decade's chick-rocker style coming up, more wearable items are making their way onto the rails.

With the new Runaways biopic hitting screens, items like this Leather Vest by designer house Shakuhachi are clearly taking inspiration from the style of Joan Jett and her peers. While it's not easy to pull off a style like this, classic black leather makes this vest a more wearable option for those of us who want to take the look offstage.

Get it now from Urban Outfitters UK for £235, from their boutique lines.

Dogfish Head does Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew beer


The album was released in 1970 and as well as being a bestseller, has been hugely influential amongst jazz, funk and rock musicians. But now Bitches Brew by Miles Davis is also the inspiration for a beer by Dogfish Head.

It's a potent little number too, described as 'a bold, dark beer that's a fusion of three threads imperial stout and one thread honey beer with gesho root, coming in at 9% ABV. According to Dogfish founder Sam Calagione, is "the ultimate partner for chili or spicy curry chicken" and best enjoyed "sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album."

That album is due a reissue in August, which is when the beer, with that very hip label, will be on the market at an as-yet undisclosed price.
