We’ve mentioned Diet Butcher Slim Skin on
Brandish before, but now you can actually buy their items online, we feel their
pieces are worth another look. If you like the look of sheer fabrics on the
catwalk but are worried about getting beaten up by idiots, this layered
t-shirt

Ute Ploier Shorts from b Store

UTE SHORTS.jpg

From Marc Jacobs to Topman, McQ to Uniqlo, short shorts have undoubtedly secured their place as the menswear item of the season – and possibly the year. If I said they needed an adopter than we at Brandish are basically an orphanage. We have given you examples of short shorts in a spectrum of colours, fabrics and prints and Jason even took it to a political platform!

Reiss Sky Blue Trench Coat

Why do writers (myself included) challenge
your masculinity every time something like sheer shorts are on the runway? It’s
always ‘go on if you dare, if you think you’re man enough’ ad nauseam (I’ve
done this many a time, so I’m just as guilty as anyone else).  The reason this occurred to me is because I
was tempted to follow a similar theme with this Reiss
trench coat

So, you’ve decided to go nautical this
season – good choice. Most of the pieces are pretty timeless on their own and
together it’s a look that won’t be copied by many, allowing you some
individuality. The absolute best thing about the nautical look is that you’re
spoilt for choice from the waist down. Finding the perfect top to finish off
your look can be a quite a challenge but John Smedley aim to make the task
easier with this Polo
shirt

My Theory- The Future of Short Shorts

00340m_2
“You were on my mind at least nine tenths of yesterday, it seemed as if perhaps I’d gone insane. What is it about you that has commandeered my brain? Maybe it’s your…” Kimya Dawson’s brilliant lyrics ring through my head as I realise that it appears I have nothing better to do on a Saturday night than listen to the Juno soundtrack (heads up my friends,) and appear pensive and philosophical while typing away at my laptop. That is until you know what is causing me so much mental frustration- I am deciding upon my ‘theory’ (as labelled by Jason and furthered by Isabelle) regarding the devious short shorts trend.
