The search for the perfect jeans might just be over

first_imgAfter perfecting the classic tee, polo shirt and boxer short, Luxury English brand Sunspel has launched the latest product in their line of men’s essentials: the Made In England Jean.This marks the first time the brand has delved into the world of denim in its 150-year history. Sunspel’s head designer Pascale Pinxt says that creating the jeans felt like a natural next step in their mission to offer customers the best in menswear basics.“Sunspel prides itself on providing quality cornerstones of the wardrobe,” she remarks. “We knew denim was a key component to any wardrobe and a natural pairing with our signature white t-shirt.”When asked what she believes makes for the perfect jean, she succinctly replied, “Fabric, cut, and construction.” To answer to these three criteria, the designers at Sunspel constructed a straight-leg pant out of 14-oz. selvedge denim from Japan.  The denim undergoes a special rope dyed technique, which lends it a particularly rich indigo hue.Related: The Manual’s guide to the perfect pair of denim“We selected a simple rinse wash to the jean, which means it retains a lot of its dye and looks smart—even in color.  That works best for us as our look is cleaner and more refined,” comments Pinxt.Though the jeans accrue a certain worn-in character over the course of several washes, as a result of this dying process, the true-to-fit jeans also manage to retain their dark color. The effect is a jean that’s modern yet stylishly classic, all while hearkening back to the brand’s English roots.“These jeans have a really easy fit, so it works well across a range of customers ,” says Pinxt.  “We see our customers dressing it up with a shirt and our unstructured blazer, or styled casually rolled up and teamed with our signature white t-shirt.”No matter how they’re worn, the Made In England Jean ($325) makes for the perfect staple in any man’s closet.Check them out, here.

Big gamehunting Harley Street doctor jailed after faking invoices worth almost £200000

first_imgChang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley Street Passing a two-year sentence at the Old Bailey, Judge Philip Katz told him  he could see no other reason for him doing it “other than greed”. “There was a gravy train passing by and you wanted to jump on it,” the judge said.  “This is, in many ways, a tragic case because, as you realise, the scale of this fraud and the fact that you have denied it in the face of overwhelming  evidence means there is only one way I can deal with you – it is to sentence a hard-working doctor to prison. He added: “You got greedy. You were living an ordinary and respectable life, you come from a respectable background of professional people who, I expect, are horrified to witness what happened as a result of the choices you have now made.”  Chang, who was born in Hong Kong, sparked anger among animal-lovers in 2009 after he was photographed sitting on the head of an elephant he had shot in  Zimbabwe. He defended killing the beasts, insisting it helped local people, and survived the public backlash to keep his job. But the latest scandal is almost certain to end his medical career for good and he has recently been scraping a living with driving jobs and by working  in a restaurant. The court heard Chang systematically defrauded insurance companies by billing them for physiotherapy sessions which never took place. The scam lasted for two years until one of the insurance companies became suspicious about the number of invoices coming from Proteus Healthcare.  A big game-hunting Harley Street doctor who faked invoices worth almost £200,000 for non-existent treatment has been jailed for two years. Dr Benjamin Chang, 57, was at the heart of a controversy after he was photographed giving the thumbs up next to a dead elephant during a hunting trip in Africa in 2009. His career is now in ruins after he was found guilty of a two-year scam against insurance companies by billing them for non-existent physiotherapy  sessions. Chang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley Street.  There was a gravy train passing by and you wanted to jump on itJudge Philip Katz Chang claimed £183,000 while running  his private medical practice from Milton Keynes, but also used consulting rooms at Harley StreetCredit:Ed Willcox Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Their investigations revealed Proteus was being run by Dr Chang and the physiotherapist supposedly providing the treatment did not even exist. Prosecutor David Povall said Chang was carrying out the scam “to enrich himself” and pay off his debts to his family. Mr Povall said: “The police found dozens of examples of cases in which Benjamin Chang had supported claims from Proteus Healthcare for physiotherapy. “They seized Dr Chang’s computer server and found dozens and dozens of  Proteus invoices for named claimants purportedly signed by Helen Preston. “What the Crown is suggesting is that Proteus Healthcare is not a business  that provides physiotherapy – it is a business that provides invoices for  physiotherapy. “Dr Chang knew that these invoices were false, that there was no physiotherapy or not the amount being claimed for.” Chang, of Mill Hill, north London, denied fraud by false representation. last_img read more
