Butt boosting underwear for men

buttpadcollage.jpg

This is another of those ‘who is actually buying these?’ items that are so bizarre they deserve another look. Apparently there’s a large number of men who feel their derriere is inadequate. That’s prompted Canadian company Bottom’s Up to make padded underwear that boosts your appearance at the back and front.

Lucas Ossendrijver’s 10 rules of style

lanvindesigner.jpg

In this month’s Details, Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver delivers his 10 rules of style. While we’ve heard some of these rules before, an interesting one he brings up is that ‘You shouldn’t adapt to what people expect you to wear’. I think that’s an interesting point and one to remember when you get stuck in a style rut.

Is pink one of the colours of the season?

greyone.jpg

In the London paper today, they’ve stated that silvery grey is the colour of the season. I doubt it will be, due to grey shirts showing sweat more prominently than other colours but that’s not my main steak with this article. More problematic is the colour they’re teaming it up with – pink. Back when men started wearing pink, it was a statement of a softer side, the kind of man who cries watching Sex and the City before going back to chop some wood and crush a beer can on his forehead.

Stars of The Wire go all high fashion

If I were to play a word association game with things from The Wire, the last thing I’d associate with it is high fashion. So I was more than a little surprised to see Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson – who play Marlo and Snoop – in this weekend’s Guardian sporting Prada and Paul Boateng. On the plus side, it did give me an excuse to pimp the show -which is the greatest TV show ever – to anyone within earshot. A bit like how I’m pimping it now.

Sears are trying to expand their market by introducing a new line designed by veteran rapper LL Cool J.
It’s no groundbreaking concept collection, more of a range of t-shirts and jeans, Sears senior vice president Irv Neger said: “We know this [urban] customer is in the store, but it’s a customer we weren’t reaching. With this brand, we see tremendous growth opportunity.”

Cannes 2008 Style offenders

I had originally planned this to be a post all about Quentin Tarantino’s lack of style, but then I realised that he wasn’t the worst offender. I can barely believe I wrote that sentence. This is a man who has the worst leather jacket I’ve ever seen and yet he still isn’t amongst the worst dressed at Cannes. That honour goes to this fine group of gentlemen pictured above.

Brandish Poll: High-Waisted Jeans

topman.jpg

What a surreal start to the week- trawling Topman for a Monday Morning boost, I was hoping for a few print t-shirts but instead discovered the horror of the new ‘Premium High Waist Slim Jeans.‘ Yes, that’s right; after drop-crotch and MC Hammer (I don’t actually want to touch this) denim, we are being given the chance to try out the latest jean trend. The high waist has failed to get women on side à la skinny jeans simply because they are impossible to wear. In indigo, 100% cotton and selling for £45, I am left wondering if it is really worth the risk. What do you think?

See our poll after the jump.
