We’re of a slightly follicular bent today, I’m trying to persuade Will to get a flat-top (he’s got youth and good looks on his side so I don’t know what’s stopping him!) and now I’m bringing you a comb for your moustache.
More bags, this time they’re from TANNER. Cut, sewn and handstitched from single hides, the messengers are constructed to be ‘functionally sound, utilitarian, and durable’. So rather good then. Since they’re handmade from scratch, custom adjustments can be made for pocket sizes or stitch colour. Of course, all the fun in owning a bag like this is watching the leather mature over time – well worth the investment.
The Guardian had an article up about men
bags – I refuse to call them ‘manbags’ – Although I just did. Damn. They
ask five people ranging from Topman’s design director to NME’s editor about
what’s in their bags, what make their bag is and how they feel about the term ‘manbag’.
Since the beginning of time, life, and our own existence- man has been fascinated in choice. From peace protests to monumental civil rights movements, we have always had a taste for the mish-mash aspect of life. This obsession with accessibility has been translated onto this season’s catwalks.
Although spring isn’t even properly here,
people have already started whipping out the sunglasses. As much as I love
shades, there’s something odd about people who wear them inside, in the dark or
(and this is especially weird) on the underground. What do they have to hide?
How can they see anything? Do they have black eyes? Inevitably, this curiosity
leads me to stare at people in sunglasses like they were zoo exhibits.
I would say it’s a bit premature to start
looking at sunglasses, but then I realised that we’ve been looking and A/W 08
collections for the last few months. We’re probably very late in talking about
something that we’ll only wear in a couple of month’s time. So, in conclusion,
it’s actually a perfect time to start looking at sunglasses.
If you’ve seen it go wrong, you might be reticent
about the splash of colour trend. I mean, a splash is fine, but too much
splashing can create a jarring effect. Seeing as accessories are the best way
to add colour to an outfit, why not start with this sky
blue Paul Smith belt?
Looking to jump accessory first into the
plaid/tartan/check trend? Of course you are, you’re on Brandish and by
extension, have an amazing sense of style and fashion. So, as a person with an
amazing sense of style and fashion, you’ll be looking to start early on the
check on check trend (as spotted by our sadly departed Tim). Now you can fulfil
your check on check needs by accessorizing with this F
by Friis woodman bag.

Contrary to popular belief, Issey Miyake
does make items other than aftershave. His range of watches are quite popular
amongst those who can afford them (trust fund kids) and they’ve created several
innovative designs. The pick of the bunch is this twelve 365
