Outfit Pick: The Waistcoat Done Well?

By Will Reid on September 8th, 2008

waistcoat.jpgJust last week, Brandish editor Isabelle asked the general fashion public if the waistcoat could ever be worn well. We were subjected to the torture of Boyzone (whose waistcoat crimes can also be seen here,) and then buttered up with stories of white waffle and petrol blue. Now, I’ve created an outfit out of an All Saints waistcoat and looked to Frank Sinatra for tailoring inspiration.

Polyvore: The Beloved Tool is Brandished!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008

One of my own punk-inspired ‘sets’ combines Dries Van Noten trousers, a Uniqlo t-shirt, an image of inspiration and a black crayon with Vans for some high fashion-DIY.

Polyvore has long been the talk of fashionistas and our sister site, Catwalk Queen, runs a ‘Style This’ competition based completely around the image-making tool. Whether it’s a Vivienne Westwood tie or a Topman ring, styling outfits has never been easier! Granted, we men have it a bit harder in terms of finding a wide variety of items but just search for ‘man bag’ and you have a good page of man-bags.

And best/worst of all? After you’ve styled your outfits you can even buy everything you’ve included in your image.

Look out for more Brandish outfits or watch the Polyvore tutorials and send your own to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com!

The Sartorialist isn’t convinced by shorts suits, but his images of sports jackets worn with shorts does indeed work well for the summer months. If you’re not sold on the idea of a shorts suit but want to look smart this summer see after the jump for my outfit pick which team madras with a pale chambray check and sturdy leather plimsolls. Clubmaster-style sunnies add a dose of bookish retro and the jacket finishes of the smart look.
