Bandsome is bringing menswear back to (sustainable) basics

It’s an exciting time for menswear – the once hard-and-fast rules of dapper dressing have been thrown out the window in favour of experimental style. But where do you turn to when your neon bum-bag and platform sneakers inevitably fall out of fashion? To basics. A good tee and a reliable pair of pants are the bread and butter of most men’s wardrobes no matter what they throw on top. Bandsome is a brand that understands this, so it’s dedicating itself to producing the best basics out there in sustainable style. more

Win a double pass to see Little Women

Little Women draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In writer-director Greta Gerwig’s (Lady Bird) take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms – is both timeless and timely. The Weekend Edition is giving you the chance to win one of ten double passes to see Little Women. Enter below for your chance to win. Little Women opens in cinemas from January 1, 2020. Competition closes Wednesday, December 18 at 11:59 pm. Winners will be contacted by mail. more
