Plus Deck Cassette Converter

We’ve all got tapes lying around the place that we don’t listen to anymore. For example, I’ve got a bag full of John Peel tapes left at my mum’s house. Why didn’t they make the move with me? I spend most of my time at the PC and can’t play tapes in it (and I’ve […]...More

Evel Knievel Stunt Set

Older readers of Brandish may well recall their youthful years being frittered away with a bloke trying not to kill himself on his motorbike. Of course I’m talking about Evel Knievel. You may also recall that brilliant rip and rev toy of the great man. Well, you can now relive some of his crazy stunts […]...More

Free stuff: Top 15 babe blogs

There are literally thousands of blogs devoted to pretty women – or ‘babes’, as the internet calls them – wearing not-very-much-at-all. In theory, this is a very good thing. In practise, it can be hard (no pun intended) picking out the good ones from the wastes of web space. Luckily for you, dear Brandish readers, […]...More

Etnies Bernie retro skate shoe

The ‘Bernie’ from Etnies is a retro skate sneaker with canvas upper, rubber sole, and trademark Etnies ‘E’ logo. I like its simple, understated design – yes, they looks pretty similar to the Converse AllStar Lo, which tend to be worn mostly by twats in bands and London media types, but these Etnies make an […]...More

Karhu Trainers

If you’re sick of wearing big label trainers like Adidas or Nike, then how about this small Finnish company called Karhu? Karhu have been taking advantage of its sportswear legacy by reintroducing classic designs under the Karhu Originals banner. They’ve a pretty big range of shoes out, but most notable are the Karhu Originals Olympic [...More

Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard

Good lord. We’re actually living in the future! Not only do we have the chance to wear futuristic digital T Shirts, but now you can use a keyboard that doesn’t actually exist. An amazing glimpse of the promised retro-future (by which I mean a future that looks like Tron) has just arrived at ThinkGeek in […]...More

Burton Dominant snowboard

If you’ve never been skiing or snowboarding (the real thing, as opposed to on a dry slope), then you’d better get a move on – global warming is really kicking in now, and several resorts have had to shut down this winter, due to a distinct lack of snow. Oh well, at least in 2086, […]...More

California Surf Co. Rainbow Wave t-shirt

‘California’, ‘surf’… two words that conjure up images of fit, tanned bodies and sunshine and golden beaches and hot-panted girls on roller skates. For those readers unfortunate enough to live in Hull (where, I’m reliably informed, the surf is crap) rather than Cali, take comfort in this lovely t-shirt, with its ...More

Brandish blog’s best bog books

Try saying that headline when you’ve had a few ales. A good bog book adds immeasurably to a man’s toilet experience. Here are five books fit for the Brandish blog’s bog: 1 Red Meat GoldMax Cannon’s Red Meat is a gloriously black comic strip, featuring a host of memorably dysfunctional characters. Our favourite is Milkman [&h...More

Lifepod Rocksteady retro iPod speaker bag

There are loads of things to plug your iPod into, but none as cool as this. Retro design crashes headlong into modern technology with the fabulous Lifepod Rocksteady retro iPod speaker bag. It’s pretty much a vintage holdall (very much like the sports bags from the late seventies) in a range of colour schemes and […]...More

Kickers Kick-Hi Boot

Kickers haven’t really brought out a boot (or shoe… or anything for that matter) that has captured the public’s imagination since the Kick-Hi Boot. Well, it’s hardly surprising that the Kick-Hi Boot has been seen sneaking around the streets again recently. The boots are leather upper with a rubber sole and feature the classi...More

Most wanted: Ducati 1098 motorbike

Ducati’s new 1098 is essentially a MotoGP (the bike equivalent of F1) bike for the public road. And that is a damn scary thought. The 1098 is the lightest, fastest-stopping, quickest-lapping Ducati ever produced, so as well as £14,000 spare cash, you’ll also need balls the size of watermelons to handle this beast – it’s [&h...More

Five lovely skateboards

Now I don’t claim to know anything about skateboarding, apart from the fact that a lot of ‘decks’ (isn’t that what the kids call ‘em?) feature rather lovely artwork and graphics. Here’s a few choice boards for you to check out, all of which are available from online skate & clothing shop Route One. More [&hel...More

Design classic: Helly Hansen striped crew top

I own no less than three Helly Hansen long-sleeved crewneck tops, and, who knows, I may not stop there. They’re so damn versatile – wear them as a base layer or an outer layer for jogging or mountain biking or snowboarding or just lounging around the house. The wicking fabric means they dry in a […]...More

T-Qualizer Shirt

A T-Shirt is just a T-Shirt right? It’s either got a good design or it’s functional. Anything to waver from that leaves with Global Hypercolor… and all that did was alert everyone to your sweaty armpits. Well, not anymore. ThinkGeek has unearthed this marvelous space age Tee that comes complete with a fully functioning graphic [&h...More
