I was recently watching Bruce almighty and during the infamous Monkey-Butt scene (I try to be a serious journalist,) I was struck with the cold slap of sartorial envy.

Remember Graniph? If you don’t (and you’re too lazy to click the link) it was a t-shirt site which also hosted a competition to find new designers. The winners were split into one gold prize, ten silver prizes and nineteen bronze ones with Cho Jo Tzu taking the gold with her ‘Peace Love Rabbit Foot’ design.

Office Wear Chic In The Independent

Will Reid Clothing, Lifestyle & Gadgets, Suits & Tailoring Leave a Comment

Reading through The Independent Online last night, I came across this article by Alice-Azania Jarvis on the art of dressing for work. As she states, “the thing about getting dressed for work – the thing that makes it so very difficult – is that work is definitely not about clothes. On the contrary: in the world of earnest employment, such frivolities are almost frowned upon.”

I am going back to Mumbai mid-August and top of my WISHLIST are a pair of swimshorts. I would attempt trunks but don’t share David Gandy’s body (unfortunately) and want to be able to spend this summer without holding the stomach in and clenching the buttocks.

First Day Fetish… Luke Worrall’s Heels

Will Reid Clothing, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

The Farlex Free Dictionary decrees that Monday is “the second day of the week, and the first day of the working week.” That latter part means that for most of us, it is a ridiculously depressing day of hellish tasks and grumpy peers.

So why not add a dash of excitement with these pictures from the August 2008 issue of Dazed & Confused. From the title editorial, itself entitled ‘Dark Magic,’ I present to you Luke Worrall in high heels and other pieces of woman’s clothing.

It’s a staple of every man’s wardrobe (or at least it should be), but who wears the classic white shirt with the most style?

H&M to push the boundaries of their menswear collection

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, News Leave a Comment

hmmen.jpg

H&M have decided to put a little more elbow grease into their menswear line, focusing on a sort of premium range that will be at thirty stores worldwide. Although no mention is made of COS in the article, it’s likely that the success of their upscale big brother has led them to the conclusion that men will gladly pay more for higher quality.

A.P.C founder blogs

Despite being a regular visitor to Honeyee.com, I only just noticed their blog the other day. They’ve roped in several noted names, such as Kaws, Visvim’s Hiroki Nakamura, Carri Munden and, bizarrely, John Mayer. These are all great, but the most interesting blog has to be that of A.P.C’s Jean Touitou.

A Bit of Fun: 80sTees.com

As part of Google Mail, you are constantly bombarded with adverts for whatever your e-mails are about. For me, that is largely fashion and therefore, I receive links to sites such as 80sTees.com. This online store proved to be pretty good; I wasted about half and hour going through the memorabilia.

(L-R: Hot Chip, Iggy Pop, The Little Ones)

I can’t say I’ve ever thought of looking at Playboy for clothing, but this Rock the Rabbit campaign is slowly changing my mind. In their second year they’ve roped established musicians like Iggy Pop, Daft Punk and Duran Duran amongst relative up and comers like Hot Chip and Tokyo Police Club.

For this season, the genius designer Stefano Pilati has decided to preview the label’s menswear collection in the form of an incredibly arty mini-film called ‘Figures Entwining.’ With a couple of androgynous male and female models, Pilati shows a main male (fully clothed in YSL goodness) being showered by this mass of bodies.

Lad Musician coming to Blackbird

This is big. Bigger than finding out Liz Jones didn’t like Glastonbury (Shock Horror! A woman who calls cats ‘fur babies’ doesn’t like a muddy festival). I’m typing this so hard, I’m about to break my 3 year old Toshiba laptop. Lad Musician. Are. Coming. To. Blackbird. Read that sentence one more time and take it all in. I know, I can’t believe it either.

Sale pick – Material Boy double breasted jacket

Given Material Boy’s Topman Lens collection, you’d assume that every boutique would be snapping at his clothing. It’s an understatement to say that this hasn’t been the case. One of the only places to buy Material Boy is Bespoke Boutique and as luck would have it, they’re having their summer sale. The pick of the bunch is this double breasted jersey jacket.

Sale alert – Dries Van Noten sheer shirt

Sheer shirts have been on the catwalk for a while now and still haven’t been taken up by many men. The reason for this is obvious – not many men want to wear any kind of see through fabric. The plus side of sheer is that it can transform ubiquitous pieces into daring ones instantly. Like this Dries Van Noten shirt.

Sale pick: J. Lindeberg jeans

Now that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.
