The shape of this t-shirt is perfect. I love the over-sized boxy shape of it with the scoop neck. It reminds me of the American Apparel version but with a wider and higher neckline. Synonymous with their fantastic jeans, which are the best value, best fitting and best pretty much everything jeans out there, Cheap Monday’s clothing range is growing …
Fashion retailer Republic has announced a new menswear brand aimed at the mainstream. Boasting catwalk inspired styles but without the hefty price tags, Fabric’s range includes sleek silver Beatles jackets with a turqouise lining, muted toned polo shirts, fine knitted cardigans with shawl necklines and Quadrophenia-inspired slim-line trench coats (modelled here by Arctic Monkey Alex Tuner).
Being on public transport in the glorious-but-annoyingly-timed-to-coincide-with-the-working-week heat wave is pretty grim. Buses, trains and especially the Tube are hotter than Bin Laden’s pager number, if you were naked you would still be wearing to much. Clearly you can’t rock out with your cock out on public transport, however you can compromise with Granddad’s favourite, a vest.
Nixon is a company in it’s relative infancy, in the world of time pieces there is more heritage and history than you can shake a stick at: Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling, Bvlgari, Omega all have elaborate back stories usually involving some other notable trade such as aviation or nautical navigation. Nixon makes up for it’s lack of heritage by coming up with contemporary, provocative and colourful designs, the voguish feel of these watches is achieved by using high quality modern materials until now rarely seen around the wrist. The popularity of the products Nixon has been putting out has made the jewellery elite sit up, take notice and put out their own products in less traditional materials, most noticeably Chanel’s J12 coming in both black and white ceramic, though while the others are treading water to keep up Nixon remains ahead of the pack pushing the boundaries and combining new designs with new materials.
It’s a little early for Father’s Day but Aramis‘ body shampoo on a rope is the kind of thing you want to keep for yourself.
Yours truly missed the E.Tautz show when they made their catwalk debut at last September’s London Fashion Week so it was a real treat to see the collection up close and personal.
Celebs sporting an excessive amount of facial hair are not a new thing, but when you spot ‘Joaquin Phoenix Stole My Style’ groups on Facebook you know these celebs are getting hairier.
News just in from the Topman design team about the direction they will be taking the Topman Design show:

Flavor Flav strikes a kooky pose to promote his latest show ‘Nite Tales‘, which is billed as a horror extravaganza it’s a far cry from his days as Public Enemy’s flamboyant rapper.
Grey on top, blue below. It’s like a colour version of a mullet, business at the front, party at the back and works really well.

Happy Socks are making waves all over the blogosphere, the Swedish sock company launched in Europe recently and even has its own Facebook Group.
Click image to enlarge On Thursday Uniqlo plan to give away 4,000 gift packs as part of their Heat Tech launch. Apparently in Japan Heat Tech is as popular as a cup of tea when it comes to keeping you warm, the fabric absorbs moisture and converts it into heat combined with an exciting mix of milk proteins which ensures …
Call me fickle but by this time the shine has worn off the main trends we’ve been drooling over all summer and I’m left feeling a little bored.
David Beckham’s possible January loan to AC Milan is big news in football but all I can think about is whether he’ll start dressing more like an Italian… hey, even James Bond, the quintessential English gent wears Brioni.
The Sartorialist featured these two images of a young man wearing a jumpsuit and heels in one, and jeans and patent lace-up in the other. Men in heels has become a slightly more common occurrence, on the streets of London anyway; I’m sure the sight of a man in stilettos would probably raise an eyebrow (and possibly a fist) in …
The usually cherubic and stylish Beck Hansen looked a little off when he made it to the TV studios to appear on David Letterman’s Late Show.
As we walked into the On|Off exhibition I had a ‘I want that boat’ Napoleon Dynamite moment looking at Rozalb de Mura’s designs. I especially lusted after a pleated sleeve tunic in a gorgeous shade of grey and on the catwalk the menswear was equally impressive.
Rozalb de Mura is the name of a fictional baron thought up by the design team which is a brilliantly Martin Margiela touch. Designer Olah Gyarfas has been working in his native Romania for the last two years on the de Mura label.
With the sun constantly teasing us in the UK, it’s about time we started looking at Autumn/Winter collections. First up will be APC, who have a distinctly winter-sailor feeling, continuing on from their SS collection. They also surprisingly make Ugg-like boots look wearable. Check after the jump for more looks and accessories.
I found this video on Youtube and couldn’t resist putting it on Brandish.
