Hanon have got a great sale going on. They’??ve taken 50% off, and then they’ve taken 20% off, and then sometimes they’ve taken another 20% off. My brain can’??t cope with that arithmetic, but it can cope with the bargains. From left to right we have a rather nice Penfield donkey jacket for a mere £38.37; a Comme Des Garcons/ …
For just over a week now, we’ve seen the catwalk reports for Autumn/Winter 2008 appear daily on Brandish. McQueen pleased, Prada shocked and Rykiel came with a warning (of its brilliance I hasten to add.) Going through the shows it looks as though this season we men will get in detail what we give in cash.
With spring coming soon – I hope – It’s
time to start planning your spring outfits. If you’re into the business look,
then you’ll love this Lyle
& Scott Harrington jacket (£89). Over recent months, Lyle & Scott
has really, really gotten popular. It’s got to the point where you can walk
into a bar and see at least five people sporting the eagle. So if you’re the
kind of person who doesn’t want to wear
brands that are too big, you might want
to give Lyle & Scott a miss.
We’re all going to need a suit at some
point in our lives, so why not get one on sale? Dries Van Noten are
a brand we’ve featured before and for good reason. Suits in general are pretty
timeless, unless you get one with skulls on it or something, so you’re safe in
the knowledge that they’ll never be out of season. DVN suits are tailored impeccably, leading to
a very flattering fit.
Right now is the most awkward time to buy clothes. You know you need some more winter clothing but are also aware that spring is just round the corner. Stock up on tees and you’ll be freezing until at least March. Stock up on coats and jumpers and you’ll have nothing to wear come March. It’s this dilemma that’s led us to stockpile our sale coat recommendations into one handy top five post. After this you will see no more winter coats on Brandish. Unless we see a coat we like.
What’s the word most associated with the
phrase ‘January sales’? Is it ‘great bargains’ or ‘horrible panic buy made just
to get out of the shop with something’? For most, it’s the latter. Bright lights and awful music can make for
some terrible shopping decisions. So why not take some time out, turn your
lights down low, put on whatever music you like and take a seat. Although you
should have been sitting down already, unless you use a PC standing up. And
that’s just bizarre.
Judging by what a lot of high-street stores have in stock, bib shirts (like the one to the left) seem to be popular right now. I’m not sure why. From a distance it just looks like the wearer has been sweating profusely in a asymmetrical pattern. Not the look anyone wants to go for.
