Love The Look: George Lamb’s Lashings of Fashion Fabulousness

By Will Reid on July 21st, 2008

georgebblb.jpgBig Brother’s Little Brother (BBLB) presenters have a tradition for being rather cool fellows and after the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Russell Brand, George Lamb is the latest man to be lighting our screens with his look. Take a look at the screencap (left) from a recent episode of BBLB; the cropped and turned up trousers, the worn-in brogues, the grey (still a key colour) and the Alber Elbaz-inspired bow-tie.

Topped off by the same messy but manicured hair that catapulted the likes of Bob Geldof to style icon status, Lamb has the foundations of an up ‘n’ coming sartorial institution.

Justin Lee Collins? Bob Geldof?! Brandish’s Top 5 Unlikely Male Style Icons

By admin on July 15th, 2008

Round these parts we know who looks good and who doesn’t, but who are the more unlikely chaps working individualistic looks that we admire?

Will Reid: Although Justin may be prone to a too-tight t-shirt, The Friday/Sunday Night Project presenter’s sheer charisma and the fact that those tight tees usually bear a cult band logo mean he’s earned his place on this list. With his faded flares and large Aviators Justin has made many a Friday night worth staying in for, and if he gets his shaggy-yet-manicured locks cut, I for one will weep.

WISHLIST: CA4LA Trilby

By Will Reid on May 28th, 2008

trilby3.jpgThis week I happen to be in the rather happening city of Mumbai. This former Bombay is, according to US Vogue, the new “It-City” but after landing yesterday I must admit that the gruelling heat wave soon quashed my hopes of glamour and a jet-set style wardrobe. In my stone grey Topman shorts, white belt, Karate Kid t-shirt and flip-flops I realised I was missing something and as soon as I stepped into the light of Indian sun I realised that what I needed was a hat. In my opinion, the trilby is a classic ruined by our own style icons but Browns is trying to change this and the CA4LA collection they have started to stock has a great variety of classic hats with a modern twist. My fave is this hat above with blue brim, white trim and black crown. With badge and feather included, what’s to stop you from pulling a Geldof and strutting out of airport lounges stealing bottles of wine (that’s an actual observation.)

Trilby, £135, Browns
