Nudie checked shirt

admin Clothing 1 Comment

I immediately fell in love with this checked shirt from Nudie (£55). At first glance it could be any other checked shirt, but the closely tailored cut and shorter-than-short sleeves give it a much more flattering look than your generic Next or Burton’s shirts. The opposing direction of the pattern on the pocket and fly front also help it to …

Oh dear. Burtons sell Neo-Nazi T-Shirt

mofgimmers Clothing 1 Comment

Have a good look at this snazzy t-shirt from Burtons. It’s nice isn’t it? Well, if you like ethnic cleansing that is. What’s that? Well, a clever sod called Paddy Shuttleworth, a student at Bristol University, spotted the unassuming tee in his local Burton menswear shop and was… shall we say… a bit surprised. The Cyrillic writing surrounding the doubleheaded …

Calvin Klein at Milan’s men’s fashion week

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, News 5 Comments

Calvin Klein’s utilisation of sunset-pastel hues stood out on the runway at Milan’s men’s fashion week, where much of the offering from other designers were simple blacks and grey shades. That’s not to say that Klein didn’t exhibit icy-white ensembles and crisp, black shirts, but his strongest display came in puces, powder blues and pale khaki. This warm palette offsets …

Hilary Alexander recently commissioned Jefferson Hack to write a fortnightly column for the Telegraph about menswear and it’s quality. In his latest column he spoke …

admin Clothing, Entertainment 1 Comment

Today’s young people have returned to the dressing up box, our media obsessed culture has created a young tribe of attention seekers. They know how to reference better than anyone, they eat images, they devour them. We are heading for an energy crisis and it seems at times that the world is moving toward a holy war, a new youth …

Fila Zizzore Top

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight 1 Comment

It seems like you can’t buy an item of clothing these days without it being an "original", "distressed" or "vintage", such is our obsession with fashion of the past. Not that I’m too bothered. Most "modern" clothing is crap. Just look at the Nu-Rave look. Twats. In truth, I do have a bit of an axe to grind about "distressed" …

EIO tee

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight Leave a Comment

After complaining yesterday about wanting something a little different printed on my tees, my prayers have been suddenly answered by EIO clothing, makers of some seriously original men and womens clothes. They have some great looking prints, with big, brash colours that are great for Summer on one hand, like this Beach Babe tee (£25) or something a bit more …

Topman Invader top

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

If you’ve always wanted to look like the screen of an iconic 1970s arcade machine, now’s your chance. Continuing the general trend of exploiting people’s nostalgia, Topman have released the Invader Hoodie (£30), obviously based on Space Invaders. Despite my cynicism, I really like the top, but I think they missed a trick by not making the top in a …

Topman rolled sleeve polo

Isabelle Clothing 1 Comment

This Topman polo (£22) is intriguing, at first glance it looks like an ordinary casual polo, but the longer sleeves made me look twice. They give it an added air of smartness taking into shirt style stakes, which puts it exactly on the cusp of smart and casual. The faded wash takes it back to casual making it even more …

Manufactured from 100% cotton and vintage washed, this great Red Dot hooded sweatshirt features a pair of headphones screen printed on the hood.

Monsoon washed out blazer

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

I’m not one for wearing suit jackets with jeans – I end up looking like Jeremy Clarkson rather than the suave-but-casual urban lad I imagine I am. But I might give the look another go if I can get my hands on this Monsoon blazer (£70) which has an informal cut and that "slept in" appearance. The blazer would look …

I …

French Connection Transformers clothing

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

In celebration of the release of the new Transformers movie – believe me, a Tranformers movie is reason to celebrate – French Connection have released a range of tees (£20-£40) bearing the mechanical-mugs of the characters as they appear in the movie. From the pictures on the website, I can’t make out which characters they are, but it looks like …

One week after Gianfranco Ferré sadly passed away, his final menswear show took to the catwalk in Milan in front of an emotional crowd. A parade of children dressed in white shirts (a Ferré trademark) closed the show to a standing ovation from guests, journalists and buyers. Ferré’s final collection included distinct variations of his signature white shirt worn underneath …

Glastonbury fashion, Kooks vs. Killers

Isabelle Clothing, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

Watching the BBC Glastonbury footage from my sofa I seriously impressed by Brandon Flowers’ of the Killlers choice of outfit. Flowers picked a entirely gold suit, with matching gold shirt, gold waistcoat and contrasting diamanté lapels and tie . Now I’m not particularly a fan of the band, but my opinion of them rose immeasurably after seeing that footage. If …

Gammel Jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Cardigan’s aren’t too sure if they’re making a comeback this year. I’ve seen a few indie-nu-rave kids sporting golfer-stylee ones and celebs have been spotted donning plain Lyle and Scott cardies, but your mates will still laugh at you if you turn up in your grandads worn-in, 1970s knit. I for one think cardigans are great. They’re comfy and can …
