We all know that Lando “Billy Dee Williams” Calrissian is a sharp dresser. Heck, even his Cloud City pad would be a dead cert for the title of “Best Intergalactic Crib” should the MTV show ever spread among the stars. But what of the rest of the Star Wars cast? With a whole empire at his disposal Darth Vader would surely be able to charm (READ: Force Choke) a decent tailor into suiting him up into some crisp threads. And what of an outdoorsman like Chewbacca? He’s going to need some serious Birkenstocks to keep those furry paws in shape.

John Woo (the illustrator/designer, not he of “Face/Off” fame) has the answers, dressing up the galaxy’s finest aliens and Empire henchmen on trend for his new “He Wears It” project.

It’s not only great fun, but they look neat too; the Clone Tropper in Junya Watanabe and Darth Vader in Band of Outsiders look particularly sharp! Still, there’s no saving Jar Jar Binks; in Maison Martin Margiela he’s even more of an annoying dick.

All of Woo’s Star Wars illustrations (alongside some Forrest Gump and Edward Scissorhands ones too) are available to purchase as prints from his Etsy.com shop, priced $60.00 USD.

Video: Band of Outsiders x Sperry

By Jonathan Smith on January 5th, 2009

As videos go this one is kinda dull. There are no explosions, guns or tits nor is there a girl satisfying a horse/dog/herself (delete as applicable) so it’s doubtful that this is the kind of fodder we would usually ogle on our TVs or behind our bedroom’s locked door. However there are shoes, lots of lovely shoes. The video is from Band of Outsiders and showcases their collabo with Sperry bringing some awesome deck shoes for the coming season.

Hit play to see what to look out for in the coming months.

Band of Outsiders Holiday Collection

By admin on October 21st, 2008

Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg asked photographer Paul Jasmin to pose for their Holiday Collection in his LA home, it’s a shoot full of character and really gets the message of the clothes across.
The pieces are traditional menswear worn with a casual feel, think mustard velvet waistcoats, gently rumpled shirts and bow ties.

More boat shoes! this time from Band of Outsiders

By admin on May 8th, 2008

If we said phrases like ‘so and so is the new so and so’ we’d say that boat shoes are the new Puma for Brandish. The latest hoppers onto the boat shoe bandwagon are Band of Outsiders. Their new collaboration is with boat shoe specialists Sperry topsider.

With piping and boat shoes becoming increasingly popular nowadays, these effectively hit two trends with one shoe. There’s also the added luxury of knowing that these were made with people who know how to make good boat shoes, meaning it won’t be badly made overpriced nonsense, like a pair of Armani jeans or something. You can get these from eluxury for $265.

Trends: Watch & Wear-Public School Drool

By Will Reid on April 6th, 2008

Out of show season, it gets just that bit harder to predict the trends. However, in typical fashion, the industry moves on; someone gets a haircut, a designer does a high-street collaboration, Amy Winehouse is paid $1 million to do a Louis Vuitton gig. In the case of April, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lacoste.

René Lacoste turned up at tennis tournaments dressed almost as good as he played and it was from a bet on a crocodile skin suitcase that the famous Lacoste logo came about. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.
