Book Club 2011 Fall Lookbook

By Laura on April 11th, 2011

A friend in Melbourne recently sent me the Australian brand Book Club’s Fall 2011 look book.
I love the aesthetic of the shoot… and the clothes weren’t half bad either. The collection is comprised of simple clean looks that focus on solid color blocks, chinos, jeans, and button-down long-sleeves. One other notable item in the collection was the two-tone parka with contrasting drawstrings – great for English weather. To find out more about the collection Check out their site here

WISHLIST: Pete Versus Toby ‘Tipsy’ Jumper

By Will Reid on March 4th, 2009

pvt2.jpgPete Versus Toby are an Australian label and they are easily one of the coolest new menswear labels out there. From the incredible hair of their model to the vintage-feel of their prints, I am fast falling in love with this great label!

For their latest collection “designer Marco Zirov has collaborated with Byron Bay artsists Lex Williams and Raina Hede to develop an in house winter range that juxtaposes the falling Roman Empire (USA) with Rothschild family inspired sketches. Through developing the diverse range, a study of drug use and its effects on an artist was also important.”

The collection will be in shops soon!

By Colin Chapman on January 9th, 2009

You may not have the body of Hugh Jackman after all those mince pies but if you’re looking for a a piece to invest in you could do worse than the Australian cowboy classics on offer at RM Williams.

The RM Williams brand has been around for 75 years and brings with it a sense of gritty heritage. They also have a lovely site, including ‘Australia’ themed galleries featuring items worn in the movie.

The fabulous boots (around £189) are made to last a lifetime and even if they don’t they offer a full repairs service so you can genuinely call them an investment. To add to your Aussie rover swagger, a pair of moleskin jeans [heavy duty 'sueded' cotton] will keep you warm in the long run up to springtime. They retail at around £100.

The London store is at 102 New Bond Street, London W1S 1SS tel 0207 629 6222 or Google RM Williams to find UK outdoor clothing suppliers who stock the range.

Australian streetwear (yeah i know, I thought it was all just surfing and BBQ’s too) brand Schwipe has released pics of their Autumn/Winter 2008 collection. With dark base colours and high contrast tongue in cheek graphics all the pieces look great and set the brand up to be really taken seriously in the street fashion world outside of Australia.

Brandish Feature: Drop-Crotch Demo

By Will Reid on August 22nd, 2008

Drop-crotch jeans have been dubbed the ‘future of denim’ and ‘the next skinny jean.’ I am an unbelievable skinny devotee (yes, I am scarred after wearing them in Summer-heat London and not even joking) and for this reason, I decided to road-test an exclusive pre-production sample pair from Trousers London. I ventured into Covent Garden to get the public opinion on whether the jeans were ‘(Drop-)HOT!’ or ‘PANTS!’ Pitying glances, envious looks, angry words and self-styling monologues; the Drop-Crotch jeans certainly attracted attention-but was it praise or pity? Read on for the full report with street-style pics, interviews, comments and product details.
