Houllier tells French TV Thierry Henry might not be going to Arsenal – no contact between the clubs

More problems for Arsene Wenger this morning. It seemed as if Arsenal’s greatest ever striker, Thierry Henry, was destined to return to the club for a third spell this winter. Many papers have suggested that this is a done deal and that Henry would be at the club for several weeks and could even play for The Gunners in the …

Sports Personality Of The Year Bradley Wiggins – and where he got the velvet suit from

It seemed a pretty much done deal last night that Tour de France/Olympic Time Trial Champion would win the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year. So in this parish at least it was as much about the suit he chose to wore as it was scooping the award. Wiggins plumped for a bespoke velvet (very on trend) double-breasted suit made …

Arsenal planning double raid on Liverpool – goalkeeper and winger on Wenger’s radar

There has been a lot of Arsenal-related transfer news in the last few hours. Though today it isn’t all about where Theo Walcott will spend the next part of his career, but about the list of players that Arsene Wenger is after in a bid to add steel to his rather brittle squad. The Mirror has a run down of …

Manuka redesigns the belt – now with added magnets

Here’s a classic Brandish story. It combines style, technology and our favourite website Kickstarter, which pretty much sums up what we are all about. Anyhow, belts, as you know, are fairly boring affairs. Not in terms of style but in the way they work with buckles and holes. This design revolutionises the boring common belt, making it smoother and simpler. …

How to wear a scarf – and ten you’d look great in

In Winter, at least, the obvious purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm, but sartorially speaking a scarf has a multitude of uses from adding a splash of colour to an otherwise slightly dull suit through to adding a degree of formality to casual clothes. Personally I am a die-hard stripey or houndstooth scar wearer. They can …

Brandish Christmas List #2 Savile Rogue Cashmere Football Scarves

I have always found it surprising that football clubs haven’t cottoned on to the fact that not all of their fans want to be seen wearing cheap and rather nasty clothes and accessories. There’s clearly a whole group of fans who want to show their colours but wouldn’t be seen dead sporting the usual branded clobber that their team churns …

Moore backs Skyfall’s Craig, not Connery, as the best James Bond ever

Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, Craig; six James Bonds, but which is best? At least three of them are too old to fist-fight for the title, so who do we turn to for a definitive answer? Why, Bond himself, that’s who! Roger Moore, the third James Bond, has once again given Daniel Craig his blessing, calling the Skyfall star the …
