Please Mess with Texas t-shirt

By ShinyMedia on March 13th, 2007

Proto_005_lg1
This green tee gently pokes fun at the famous ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’ environmental campaign, which began in the mid-1980s as a protest against high levels of pollution and litter dumping in the state. It’s printed on a standard American Apparel cotton t-shirt and comes in any colour you like, so long as it’s green. Available from Elsewares, for $20. BUY IT

Hussein Chalayan Jacket

By mofgimmers on March 12th, 2007

Hussein_chalayan_blazer

Twice ‘British Designer of the Year’, Hussein Chalayan, has created this simple, but very handsome jacket for the discerning gent this spring. 

This smart blazer
is a lovely cloth
effort with three pockets and one internal pocket (for pulling out a lighter in a really smooth manner)
with two simple buttons
and a centred rear vent. Of course, with it being designer, it will cost you a cool £268, but you get what you pay for with things like this… and this is high quality.

Topman shirts

By Isabelle on March 12th, 2007

Topmanshirt
Topshop often stray into the Burton-style no-man’s-land of ‘retro’ ‘distressed’ fashion (spit, spit!) but one thing they do get right is their shirts. The slim fit style means that the puffy-shirted tight-jeaned townie look of yesteryear is but a painful memory. I especially like the subtle sage-striped white shirt, very fresh and would look great with some beige or grey slacks and white pumps.

Brandishfashionfair

Last night I went and investigated the ‘Fashion Made Fair’ at Fabrica Gallery in Brighton. There were stalls by howies, and People Tree; I ended up buying a couple of howies tees for my boyfriend. Ade from howies on the left, kindly
remaining civil despite my fumbling efforts with the camera!
Other brands at the sale include ethical t-shirt label Tonic and Brighton-based Red Mutha. The sale finishes on Sunday at 4pm, and is open 10 till 6pm
today and Saturday so that leaves plenty of time to get your hands on
some ethical bargains.

By mofgimmers on March 9th, 2007

PaulsmithblazerApparently, all men should own at least one item of pink clothing. For most of you, that will mean the odd T-Shirt. For the more adventurous soul, you could pay tribute to the recently deceased John Inman (Mr "I’m Free" Humphries from Are You Being Served?) by measuring yourself up in this pink Paul Smith jacket.

It’s part of Smith’s mainline range, and is a dashing pink two button tailored jacket with chest pockets, top stitching and decorative loops. This jacket has contrast buttons, two back vents and is fully lined with internal vented pockets. It’s 100% wool and yours for £429.

If you have the balls, you should be looking at getting a mac. Mixing the style of a badass seventies cop with the chic of a Parisian beatnik, a mac will set you apart from all the other blokes scuttling down the street in their bombers and tracksuit tops.

Topman have made this long double breasted nylon twill mac with waist and cuff belts that should be worn with your favourite jeans and scuffed trainers. This’ll cost you £90 and it’s machine washable too! Available in grey and black (pictured)

T-Shirt Thursday: The Brian Glover T Shirt

By mofgimmers on March 8th, 2007

GloverMany Tees feature the faces of those not worthy. I’ve seen T-Shirts with Morrissey on for example. Well, buck the trend of dour indie bands emblazoned across your chest by getting the marvelous Brian Glover T-Shirt.

For those of you foolish enough to have let Mr Glover pass you by, Brian is a man of the highest excellence. He’s a former pro-wrestler, voice of the Tetley Tea man, star of Aliens and most importantly, the bullish and brutish PE teacher in Kes. Sadly, Brian is no longer with us, but the best way to pay your respects is to sport him in this fine fine Tee.

Joe Browns: good for a laugh but not much else

By Isabelle on March 7th, 2007

Meatjoebrowns
It’s not very often that I will give sartorial orders, but this is one of those times. Go and get yourself a Joe Browns catalogue and take a look at the hilarious write-ups, but on no account should you buy anything from it. Their sub-brand Indystar "have cornered the market in free thinking, free living clothing" which basically means they do a roaring trade in awful faux-vintage t-shirts. Their clothes make me think of clueless Hooray Henry first year students who dress like beach bums even though they’re at Leeds or somewhere equally chilly; which coincidentally is where the company is located. My favourite description is this one: "Sailing, surfing, sunning yourself – whatever you plan to do this
summer, this multi stripe polo is so versatile it’ll take you anywhere
- and you’ll probably end up at the beach bar." Twats.

Paul Frank Guitar Pedals Tee

By mofgimmers on March 6th, 2007

PedalsteeWant to show the world that you’re a fan of all things fuzz and wah-wah but couldn’t play a guitar if your life depended on it? Well, you’ve got two options. One is to buy an old tennis racket and mouth all the noises yourself, or alternatively, you could buy this rather nice T Shirt which features a fine array of guitar FX pedals from Paul Frank.

It’s vintage-washed to give it a great worn in rock’n'roll look, and it’s a regular, which means it will fit a skinny frame, or disguise a lager gut. With it being dark, we all win.

It’s going for $28.00 from Urban Outfitters and is a must buy from anyone wanting a rock’n'roll T-Shirt that doesn’t feature some crappy old metal band.
