Watching BBC Four’s current series of fashion programmes? If not, shame on you! Hot on the heels of British Style Genius, Style on Trial has the premise of evaluating each decade from 1940s to 1980s in terms of its sartorial elegance. Whilst the programme takes the rather tired focus of fashion=womenswear, there’s enough on show to keep it interesting for us guys. Upcoming: the 70s and 80s (the latter featuring John Taylor from Duran!) Check broadcast times here, or in these days of convenience just watch the whole season via the fabulous BBC iPlayer.

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!
Ewan McGregor, Brandish fave and actor extraordinaire, has made it as this week’s ‘Love The Look’ style icon. While not actually a look he created himself, McGregor’s get-ups in the film ‘Down With Love’ were unbelievable. Mod suits, a Rat Pack-slick haircut, patent shoes and exotic skins; the look was one of excitement and interesting times. As the love story blossomed, each event was painted with the brilliant sartorial brush of McGregor’s dapper-dandy. Who cares if the actual film was rubbish?
