Despite his Irish genes Eoghan Quigg manages not to make any Boyzone-style disasters in his shirt and waistcoat combo. The dove grey and black is a subtle move while the black buttons provide a nice focal point for the young chap and I wish him all the best in his musical and sartorial endeavours.

There’s just one thing… I can’t ignore the hair. It looks like 2 months-worth of Dax red wax has come to roost on his head by way of some frisky seagulls. He’ll grow out of it.

Futureheads’ Barry Hynde joins waistcoat gang

By admin on December 2nd, 2008

The saga of how to wear your waistcoat is reaching epic proportions and I hear there are plans to make the story into a musical in 2012.
You might have to endure a few Boyzone tunes but that’s no big deal when you also have TV on the Radio to sing along to, and now the Futureheads are getting in on the act. Vocalist Barry Hynde sported a subdued combo of black waistcoat and grey t-shirt for their gig at the Astoria in London.

Roger Daltrey is the latest in our famous waistcoat wearers, after Boyzone, Daniel Radcliffe and TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone before him.

Appearing onstage with the rest of The Who in Canada recently he was sporting said waistcoat, fine weave shirt, black jeans and black motorcycle boots. What do you think, is the outfit a success or a flop? Take our poll after the jump!

TV on the Radio sort of passed me by, I always thought they were one of those generic indie ‘four boys and a guitar’ type bands but listening to tracks from their latest album ‘Dear Science’ I realised the error of my ways.

Just in time too, as I spotted Kyp Malone recording for Jools Holland’s show. That bushy but neat beard, those round tortoiseshell glasses, that guitar strap and the gold print tee… Finally! A man who knows how to wear a waistcoat, a great example to us all. Shame Boyzone aren’t TV on the Radio fans.

Outfit Pick: The Waistcoat Done Well?

By Will Reid on September 8th, 2008

waistcoat.jpgJust last week, Brandish editor Isabelle asked the general fashion public if the waistcoat could ever be worn well. We were subjected to the torture of Boyzone (whose waistcoat crimes can also be seen here,) and then buttered up with stories of white waffle and petrol blue. Now, I’ve created an outfit out of an All Saints waistcoat and looked to Frank Sinatra for tailoring inspiration.

Boyzone, or why waistcoats should die

By admin on September 1st, 2008

In theory I should really like waistcoats, they are great for adding definition to a silhouette and are a classic item of tailoring. I own a couple of beautiful waistcoats, a white waffle Moss bros one and a petrol blue wool waistcoat but can’t bring myself to wear any of them because of photographs like the one above. Boyzone were pictured at the weekend providing the entertainment for the switching on of the Blackpool lights, hosted by the Top Gear team.

Do any of you manage to pull off the waistcoat without looking like one of Ireland’s finest? Email me at isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.

Celeb Style: BoyZone’s Bare-Chest Comeback

By Will Reid on June 2nd, 2008

celebstyleboyzone.jpgThere are times I love gorging over celebrity looks; Cannes glamour, Oscar glory, MTV glitz. Then there are times when rather rubbish boybands return with a receding hairline and a group of barely-dressed female dancers, thinking they can win us all over with a rendition of an old classic and a bit of David Brent-dancing. Of course to pretend that BoyZone did not contribute to the Reid family soundrack would be a lie as Ronan’s “When You Say Nothing At All” has not only made my Mum cry but got my brother 16,414 Youtube hits. (I have, myself, never been influenced by that Irish twang and chorus of fiddles and flutes.)

Imagine my horror when the band recently returned to the O2 Arena in lamé trousers and chest-revealing waistcoats. I never thought I would be saying this but for once Take That could provide sutiable style inspiration.
