Competition: Break Free from traffic with a brand new GO LIVE 820 TomTom SatNav

By Laura on July 28th, 2011

We have teamed up with our friends over at TomTom to help you break free from traffic by giving you the chance to win a brand new GO LIVE 820 satnav!

TomTom recently commissioned a study to find out more about the psychological effect of traffic on drivers. They discovered that it’s not just a massive pain, but can actually increase stress levels. In fact women suffered an 8.7% increase in stress from driving in traffic, whilst men suffered a staggering increase of 60%. The report went on to suggest that long term exposure to traffic related stress could potentially become hazardous to your health.

TomTom kindly wants to help one of our readers break free from traffic by offering you the chance to win a new GO LIVE 820.The device comes complete with TomTom’s HD traffic service, providing updates every two minutes to help drivers steer clear of delays. In fact it delivers accurate traffic information seven times quicker than any other provider and gives you speed camera warnings, weather reports and information obtained via Local Search with Google.

To celebrate the launch of the GO LIVE 820, TomTom have recruited a host of UK celebrities including John Cleese, Chris Kamara, Scott Mills, and Ronan O’Gara to provide a little comic relief around the stresses of being stuck in traffic.

So if you would like have a chance of winning a GO LIVE 820 device worth £199.99, visit and

following question in the comments section below:

Giveaway: Win two shirts of your choice from t-Lab

By Laura on March 23rd, 2011

We recently came across this great new men’s t-shirt label, t-lab. We loved their distinctive style mixing art, design and popular culture.

The shirts overall have a punchy ‘less is more’ graphic style and rely on the use of strong colours and shapes. We loved how the semi-abstract graphics invite the viewer
to ‘de-code’ the shirt’s message, while clearly drawing influence from music, surfing and skiing.

To top it off all t-lab shirts are made from heavyweight 100% cotton, from suppliers committed to sustainable social and environmental policies.

We liked what the guys over at t-lab were doing so much that Brandish has teamed up with them to give you the chance to win some awesome new swag. To win two t-shirts of your choice simply go check out their site here then leave us a comment or tweet to tell us which shirt is your favourite and why.

The winner will be selected at random on March 31st.

Hackett Spring/Summer 2011 collection

By Laura on March 15th, 2011

The quintessentially British label, Hackett have launched their spring/summer 2011 collection. Comprised of four ranges, Hackett have tried to bring a classy sophisticated look to almost every summer event, whether it be a day in the country, a business engagement or just relaxing by the seaside. Although it is quite a traditional collection, I can’t help but love it. There are just so many timeless pieces worth the investment.

The four ranges include the Correspondent collection, which is inspired by “the globetrotting gentleman”, and incorporates light-weight, warm weather suiting and iconic travel garments, such as safari jackets, chinos and macs, with a contemporary cut and style. The Mayfair collection shows off the classic Hackett tailoring combined with knitwear in summery tones of fresh lilac, warm pink and mint green. The collection is a real blend of sophisticated, casual sportswear. The Caribbean collection continues a travel theme with bold colours and prints on cotton and linen trousers, shorts, polos, casual shirts, and swim wear. Finally the Nautical collection comprises of traditional maritime colours, and key pieces including a double-faced navy jacket with red lining, horizontal striped blazers, lightweight white suiting and nautical striped polo shirts.

For those of you who like the sounds of the collection your in luck because to celebrate the launch of the new season collection, Hackett is giving away an essential Hackett beach kit through their Facebook page. Check out their fan page here for all the details.

On a side note I absolutely love the photography for the collection. You can see more images on their Flickr page here

Dress well? Yeh, prove it then

By Jonathan Smith on September 16th, 2008


Are you Esquire’s Best Dressed Real man? He is, rather he was. Frank Kelly, a Business Development manager from Miami, won the 2007 accolade along with a shed load of prizes and now Esquire is on the hunt for someone to steal Frank’s (manly) crown. Along with the title there is a prize package worth $40,000 including an IWC watch, a round trip flight in a Leare Jet, a $10,000 Esquire wardrobe and a trip the Ney York City.

The EBDRM website is chocked full of profiles and though most of the competition is laughable (seriously check out the site- I laughed for like a week) there are some diamonds in the rough so don’t count yourself a shoe in just because you own a waistcoat.

Check out the EBDRM website and get yourself a profile because you never know, you could be the style guru Esquire is looking for.
