One Button suits – the way to go for the smart office party

By admin on December 18th, 2007

If you need to make an impression for your
Christmas party, a one button suit may be the way to go. They’re sharp enough
to make you look like you’ve made an effort, but are still casual enough to
wear with a pair of trainers. This Ute Ploier suit is a
perfect example of what you should be looking for. The standout piece of this
outfit would be the trainers and it’s here where you need to get things right.

Whilst Chuck Taylors can look good with a suit,
they can also make you look like you dragged any old pair of trainers from the
back of your wardrobe. Nanny State’s patent
leather trainers
go well with suits and smart attire in general, whilst
still looking like trainers.

Top present picks for men from Catwalk Queen

By ShinyMedia on December 17th, 2007

Take a look at Gemma and I sat on the couch at Shiny Towers looking through a selection of gift ideas for men. They’re good for your brother or your bezzie, but frankly I think you just should treat yourself to one of these gift ideas because Christmas is usually disappointing enough!

Martin Margiela Jacket

By admin on November 7th, 2007

Ordinarily,
clothes that come lumped together are the height of laziness. Cardigans with
shirts attached are simply unnecessary and unpractical. What if you want to
undo the cardigan? Go bare chested?   Then you’ll end up looking like a poor man’s
Magnum P.I.  But Martin Margiela looks to
change this terrible trend with his jacket
with attached tie combo
.

Although
that comment would normally fill anyone with fear, on this jacket they’ve added
the tie as a collar rather than sticking it on as an afterthought. This sets it
apart from any other combo item on the market. It’ll cost you a pretty pound
though, coming in at £680.

Dries Van Noten Suit

Although
you might try putting it off, at some point you’re gonna have to shell out on a
great suit. This Dries
Van Noten
suit is made from 95% wool and 5% flashy cashmere; which means
you can look down on the cretins who only have wool suits and really look down on those who have
polyester suits. At Brandish we heartily promote suit snobbery.

The cost
for this feeling on superiority is £655, a great price considering the amount
of condescending looks you’ll be able to give out.

Topman olive cropped trench

By Isabelle on August 15th, 2007

Topman’s olive trench is a great colour to add a military feel to an outfit and the shade works well with other on-trend A/W colours like mustard, russet and grey. The cropped length makes it less fashiony than a full length trend and the nylon fabric gives a nod to the sporty trend. It’s £65 which makes it fairly reasonable for an investment purchase, layer with a hoodies and you can wear it all winter long.

Interpol looking good while bassist Carl Dengler stars in new movie

By admin on July 26th, 2007

Interpol_3

Carlos Dengler, bassist with New York indie oufit Interpol is set to

be a movie star after landing a role as a drug dealer in My Friends Told Me About You, a Chicago based thriller that Dengler will also be producing . Other than making great music, Interpol also have to be the snappiest dressers in the music biz at the moment, which is why I’m featuring them here.

I would have given that accolade to Rufus Wainwright, but lately he’s started to dress as if his wardrobe was inspired by a trip to DFS. And don’t get me started on Doherty. Two hats? Why? Just take a look at the picture above to see if you don’t just agree on how sharp these guys look.
