More inner lumberjack at Hanon

LESH1DE-01.jpg

More of the Levi’s Vintage A/W 08 line has turned up at Hanon, and the more I see the more I like. As I mentioned in a previous post I have always thought that the Levi’s Vintage line as a whole was a little lacking but this year they are killing it with some awesome shirts and jackets to complement the denim back bone of the line.

Comme Des Garcons blazer

commepictures.jpg

Lining has been an interesting part of blazers for a while now, with inventive designers using it to showcase a contrasting colour or pattern. Comme Des Garçons have gone one step further with this lining print of an anime-like boxer. It’s the kind of the lining that seriously makes you consider walking around in the same pose the models doing above. You can get this from the usual outlets once they start stocking the A/W collections.

A Vintage Find: My Retro Sunnies from Rokit

vintage.jpg

I’m currently down in London, lapping up the (dubious) sunshine and attempting to dress in a way befitting of the cramped, and quite frankly grumpy, tube passengers. Turns out their not too pleased about being next to someone wearing a blazer with Margiela-esque shoulderpads. Basically, the heat is ridiculous and so yesterday I wondered into Convent Garden and bought some vintage sunglasses at Rokit.

The Brandish Sphere of Influence- Mr Mills Style Column?

mrmills2.jpg

Just two weeks ago, Brandish reviewed the first edition of the Sunday Times Style Magazine’s ‘Mr Mills’ menswear and style column. I decided that Mills needed to brighten up a bit and make the column a little more cheery and summer-inclined if he was to hold the attention of readers. Well, call me egotistical, but is it pure coincidence that the latest edition of the column featured pieces on swim trunks, sunglasses, lime green hair oil and bright-coloured ties?
