Manchester clothing hipsters Oi Polloi have teamed up with illustrator Ben Lamb to produce a limited edition range of greetings cards, going by the name of Icons.

Because that's exactly what they are – images of Icons – the first of which are Hunter S Thompson, Jack Nicholson as George Hanson in Easy Rider, and of course the King of Cool, Steve McQueen (pictured above).

The Cards are strictly limited and exclusive to Oi Polloi. printed on 100% recycled paper and sell for £2.50 each. See over the page for a shot of Hunter Thompson.

Louis Sidoli’s “Most Wanted” Prints

Louis Sidoli’s “Most Wanted” collection of prints uses police mugshots of famous people who’ve fallen foul of the law.

We’ve seen a similar idea used before on mugs and tea towels, but Sidoli’s designs have been given a pop art twist with each portrait having a brightly coloured wash over it, which he says is in tribute to Andy Warhol’s silkscreens. There are twelve designs, featuring all the usual suspects (if you’ll pardon the pun) including Sid Vicious, Mick Jagger, Al Capone , Jim Morrison, Frank Sinatra and Steve McQueen.

The framed giclée prints are each limited to 495 of each design and cost £399 from Washington Green.

Lee 101 Storm Rider dry denim jacket


It was the denim jacket of choice for Steve McQueen, so if it's good enough for him, I'm guessing the Lee 101 Storm Rider dry denim jacket is good enough for you and I, especially with the weather getting colder by the day.

It's made from a selvedged dry denim, with blanket a lining, sherling collar, two chest pockets, double pleated front detail, button cuff and adjustable waist.

Available in all sizes, £130 secures you one.

Tag Heuer Monaco Vintage Chronograph reissue


First produced back in 1969 in honour of the Monaco Grand Prix and famously worn by Steve McQueen 'back in the day', the Monaco is back once more, this time as the Tag Heuer Monaco Vintage Chronograph.

Apparently, this latest version is based on one of the original Monaco designs, one with the original Tag-free Heuer logo, grey dial, a charcoal grey stainless steel case and of course, the microrotor for automatic rewinding.

The watch will be available in a limited run of 1,860 pieces and goes on sale soon, priced around the £3,200 mark. If you don't like the looks, you can always head to Bamford, which offers a bespoke version.
