Owl Movement series six t-shirts

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Artists-submitted design-site Owl Movement has just released its sixth series of t-shirts and it’s the best drop to date. Neverendingsummertime is the theme that these tees are loosely based upon and, although I think summer truly is over, it won’t stop me from getting my grasping chipolatas on a couple of these awesome tops. The two standout tees from the …

Kosmetique trench coat scares me with both its looks and price

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

It’s fantastic that the classic trench coat is making roads back into men’s fashion this season, having been reclaimed from the businessman (although it’ll always be a preserve of the pervert). Although the coats being made on the back of this revival have some great shapes, they are still a little "standard" looking. The Flap Belt trench coat from Kostmetique …

Great t-shirt from new skate designers UXA

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Love this tee from New York skate fashion designers UXA, which combines punk and Americana fonts to create a twisted advertising style design. This UXA Pop tee (£28.99) would look great underneath a skinny-cut suit jacket. If that’s not quite to your tastes, UXA have also released this limited edition Hardcore tee (£28.99) which is testament to the Hardcore punk …

T-shirts from The Affair – Everyone needs a bit on the side

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

The Affair is a new kid on the block, having recently launched its unique brand of tees in August of this year. While most tee shirt designers on the web are doling out whimsical illustrations of cutesy robots or clever slogans, The Affair is taking a more controversial and, arguably, political stance in respect to their designs. So "Muslim Jesus" …

South Willard cardigan: Only for true knitwear connsoisseurs or those with money to burn

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

This Veronique Branquinho cardigan looks like just a rather smart, if a little standard, piece of knitwear at first glance, an item you could wear to your grandmother’s for Christmas, or to your pipe smoking classes. Or something. But look a little closer and you’ll notice that it has an unusual "outer-mesh" effect that covers the entire cardigan, making for …

Synopsis t-shirts – Only films buffs need apply

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

In a similar vein to the Last Exit to Nowhere tees that we featured a few months ago, Synopsis tees from 2KTShirts take a vague reference to a movie and print it on a shirt without actually revealing which film it’s regarding. In this case, 2K use the official one-line descriptions used to advertised films in TV guides, along with …

Monsoon retro bodywarmer, now known as a gilet

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Feeling that the weather too warm to get the duffel coat out but far too chilly for just a jersey and a tee? The solution lies in this sweet looking gilet (£55) (what happened to "body warmer"?) from Monsoon man. Apart from looking great over a smart jersey or casual hoody, this gilet has a cool retro styling that reminds …

Hussein Chalayan’s collection combines Tranformers technology, high fashion and nudity

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Lifestyle & Gadgets, News, Video Leave a Comment

Designers of haut couture have been responsible for some pretty weird, wonderful and creative designs in the past. However, none have been so "innovative" and forward thinking as the outfits being created by left-field designer Hussein Chalayan. Combining Transformers style technology and high fashion, Hussein has managed to come up with some pretty far out designs. And yes, I know …

Purple check Lyle and Scott golfing jersey

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Even by golf-wear standards this Lyle Scott Square Knit is a bit out there. I think the patterning is likely to put a few golfers off of their swings. However, the fading purple colouration is a great compliment for the upcoming autumn months, and the superior Lyle and Scott tailoring ensures you’ll be looking good and keeping cosy. Team up …

Allsaints Raincoat brings in a touch of facist chic

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

This Allsaints double breasted rain jacket (£195) is a refreshing departure from the black woolen coat that has become the only item suitable to wear with a sharp suit. Its severe tailoring, small collar and total absence of lapels even remove it from the "flasher" category of raincoats, the coat looking more like it belongs to a particularly au courant …

Byron Jacket by Morphine Generation is far from strung out

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

I think I’m slightly in love with this Byron Jacket (£150) from Morphine Generation. At first glance it has a severe, almost militaristic look, but on closer inspection the jacket is a lot more informal, with a patchwork quality about it. This hashed element is down to the asymmetrical zips on each side of the jacket as well as the …

Topman mock-leather bomber jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Parkers are out this season, and leather is in, but you’ll still need a hood to keep the frost off of your noggin. Most leather jacket with hoods look like cast-offs from the wardrobe of some gangster flick set in 1980s Noo Yoik and, apparently, that’s not a good look this season. The solution lies with Topman’s mock-leather (good for …

Internation Translation t-shirt from Threadless helps you get places in a foreign country, doesn’t stop you looking like a tourist

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

I knew that learning French in high school was completely futile. After all those years of lessons and thousands of pounds of tax payers money, the one marginally useful thing I can say in our Gallic cousins’ tongue is to ask for a pancake with jam. Yes, useful in certain situations, but it’s hardly going to enamour me to the …

Top Five autumnal hues

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

The weather was glorious on Saturday wasn’t it? Those rays were beating down, the breeze was light and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I do hope you made the most of it, because from here it’s all down hill. Granted, though we didn’t have much of a summer this year, there was always the hope that the sun …

Flux hoody from PrAna keeps you warm, brings inner happiness

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

The Flux hoody (£35) from PrAna (which means breath, life, and vitality of spirit in Sanskrit) is the perfect garment for the ever-colder days and nights. The thick cotton and Sherpa fleece lining will keep out the chill, while the burnt orange compliments the colours of autumn. I’m also quite taken with the embroidered tribal design on the chest. And, …
