Poll: Would you take fashion advice from George Lamb?

By admin on May 29th, 2009

The Clothes Show kicked off today and over at CQ we were left wondering what Katie Price had in mind for her equestrian bikini.
Also at the Clothes Show was TV and radio presenter George Lamb, normally his style errs the wrong side of indie, but he looked quite fetching in a taupe jacket with a gorgeous mustard silk tie. He seems to be positioning himself as a bit of a menswear expert. Would you take fashion advice from George Lamb? take our poll and let us know!

Alexander Olch opens his doors to Todd Selby

By admin on May 12th, 2009

The tie-obsessed Alexander Olch recently invited Todd Selby into his home to snap the man behind the ties in his natural habitat.

It’s a cluttered, messy place but not without charm and proves that creative people do need lots of ‘stuff’ around them. Phew, that lets me off the hook! Looking through the images of his New York home it’s easy to spot why Olch is such a meticulously obsessive character, especially when it comes to neckwear. Watch him show you how to tie a bow tie here.

Kerchiefs: another alternative to bow ties

By Colin Chapman on December 19th, 2008

The other day I posted an alternative to the bow tie .. and here’s another. The kerchief worn as necktie adds a jaunty, hipster edge to your shirt collar. There are several ways to knot, consider your personal style and what you’re wearing it with. Ideally find something vintage. Silk always looks dashing or use that spotted pocket square you’ve never had a use for.

A recent Facehunter post shows this accessory idea off to stunning effect though it’s something that The Sartorialist has also featured before, and can even be spotted in current Uniqlo window styling.

So take a break from Christmas shopping and dig out that gem. But be advised to go for subtlety in colour and proportion: unless you really ARE channeling Quentin Crisp.

Common performs “Universal Mind Control” on Jimmy Kimmel in a bow tie

By admin on December 12th, 2008

Common is also getting on the fashion bandwagon, producing a range of tees with Microsoft for their Softwear range. Whether it will be a little like this is still to be seen but Common is obviously keen to spread his fashion wings as he recently appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show in a nifty bow tie. Are you a bow tie fan? Colin came up with some pretty good alternatives to the bow tie if you’re bow shy, but I quite like them as I included them in my Present Tense Luxe gift guide.

Take our poll after the jump and let us know what you think…

The Antony Price collection (click here to see the gallery) made its Topman debut on Friday and although I haven’t been instore yet I’m keen to see how it’s selling.
There’s a good selection of quality suiting and some quirky accessories like the eye print tie and the purple bow tie which will lend a little character to your outfit without quite being on the Tazmanian Devil/Homer Simpson novelty sock level of kook.

Andre 3000- I’d Vote Just For One Of Your Bow-Ties…

Andre Benjamin (also known as Andre 3000) is taking part in the latest ‘Declare Yourself’ campaign which urges American youths to cast their vote as to who should be the next President of their country. Christina Aguilera and Jessica Alba also star in the campaign but it’s Andre’s image that has caught my attention.

Gagged with one of his own bow-ties, the campaign tells that “only you can silence yourself.”

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.
