Burberry combines British design with Swiss craftsmanship in new collection The Britain

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 10th, 2012

Here at Brandish we’re always debating ‘what makes the man’. Of course we don’t expect the men of Britain to be dressed like James Bond all day every day (OK we do a little…), but we’re great believers that accessories is a great way to stay stylish even on the odd off day.

One of our favourite new additions to the world of accessories comes from British heritage label Burberry which has just released its new watch collection: The Britain. Offering ‘a powerful balance of modernity and tradition, mixing strong attitude and innovative design with elegant craftsmanship’ The Britain has been designed in (you guessed it!) Britain and hand-finished by master artisans in Biel, Switzerland. This collection truly captures the spirit of Burberry, celebrating its heritage and culture – it takes inspiration from the iconic trench coat – yet fitting perfectly in with the lifestyle of the modern man. We think even Bond would like to get his hands on one of these…

Take a look at the complete collection here and below are images that gives us a glimpse into how The Britain was made.

Burberry fragrance for men- like rubbing Phillip Schofield all over

By Jonathan Smith on February 20th, 2009

burberry_london_men.jpg

Firstly let me confess my prejudices: I freaking love Burberry. I love Burberry for it’s class and excellence but more than that I love Burberry for its brash and obnoxious reputation bestowed upon it by council estates across the nation. No other brand can you wear and say with equal validity “I’m 1st class on Eurostar to Paris at 8:55 so get me on my Blackberry.” and “You look at Stacey again ‘n I’ll smash your fuckin’ head in!” Which is why I went off the radar with excitement when Isabelle told me she was calling in Burberry for men for me to test drive.

For the sake of this post I will not be suspending my prejudice but will be practically encouraging it. This disclaimed please jump through and get yer eyes round this review chock full of angels vaginas and teenage pregnancy- because you’ll never guess how I shoe horned those into this write up…

News just in that the Kings of Leon are going to be dressed by Burberry this evening at the Brits.

The ‘are they aren’t they’ band of brothers have been nominated for Best International Act alongside Fleet Foxes and MGMT. They’re also up for and Best International Album this evening so hopefully Burberry will have them looking their best should Matthew Horne, Kylie or James Corden (all presenting tonight) summon them onstage.

Wonder if Christopher Bailey himself will be there primping the trio before the evening kicks off?

Brandish Question: Are Your Favourite Labels Ruined By Celebs?

By Will Reid on February 12th, 2009

wenn2282109.jpgI hate to admit it but fashion weeks kill me. They really do. Don’t get me wrong- I love the glamour, the fabrics, the details, the models and every other part of the fashion seasons. But it gives me a pain in the very bottom of my heart when I realise that the glorious clothes I drool over and dream about will only end up on the Jonas Brothers 2 months later.

Case in point: Joe Jonas (above center) in Burberry at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards last Sunday. That brilliant and rather glorious, embossed silk jacket should be mine! What do you think-can clothes be ruined by the celebs who choose to wear them?

Yay or Nay: The Return of THAT Print?

By Will Reid on January 19th, 2009

burberry.jpgThe Burberry Prorsum A/W 2009 show has been going down a storm on the Internet with buyers and fashion critics air-kissing in delighted agreement as they plan their wardrobes for seasons to come (guilty as charged.) Apart from the amazing padded jackets and sharp tailoring, one of the things that has most caught my attention is the subtle return of the infamous check print. The beige tartan-esque print has, in recent years, become a taboo of the fashion industry but designer Christopher Bailey appears to have decided that the time has come for a major return.

What do you think- are you ready to show-off the check print? Vote in our poll after the jump!

By Colin Chapman on December 31st, 2008

Spring_Summer09.jpg

If like me you’re bored, bored, bored of winter and want Spring right NOW then a bit of fashion forward investigation might just perk you up.

I mentioned soft tailoring and pleated shorts in my piece on the Acne/Lanvin collaboration the other day but what else does S/S 09 hold in store for us?

Outfit Pick: Braving the Blue with Burberry!

By Will Reid on October 10th, 2008

Click To Enlarge

I’m currently sitting in a small room in India with a fan spinning in an attempt to cool me down and a mosquito net blanketing the balcony door. I have to admit it’s pretty hard to imagine wearing trench coats right now. But, I’m a proud Brit and nothing is going to get in the way of my winter-wardrobe appreciation.

This Outfit Pick shows you how to rock a modern, edgy winter look that will have you feeling protected and warm but not boring and hoping no-one spots you in your M&S beanie.

The trench adds a sharp shot of buzzing colour and the t-shirt and boots add an urban gypsy vibe that’s very on-trend. The umbrella…well, that’s just for fun.

See after the jump for full product details!

Outfit Pick: Trapper Hat Hot

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

outfitpick4.jpgI have to admit that despite being a lover of high-fashion millinery from the likes of Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy, I just can’t wear hats. They look truly horrific on me.

But the whole Brandish team is currently infatuated with an item that looks set to take off in the coming months (of snow and cold.) That item is the Trapper Hat.

In this week’s Outfit Pick, I’ve added a few eccentric pieces to a Topman Trapper hat and created a look that anyone could pull of by balancing the quirky tweed bag and dancing brogues with a classic beige trench also from Topman.

The season is a changing

By Jonathan Smith on September 26th, 2008

fall08.jpgAutumn is coming, the leaves are beginning to drop, the nights a drawing in and I’m retrieving my knocked off Burberry scarves (yes- scarves, three in fact: navy nova check, grey nova check and the classic beige nova check, don’t try to hide your jealousy) from the back of the wardrobe.

So what does this mean for us real folk who don’t go to the borders to paint the changing of the seasons? Well it means we go out and buy new outfits of course! Not everything lasts a year in fashion so don’t be relying on last years wardrobe to see you through this one- I feel a men.stlye.com buying guide coming on- and here it is, the men.style.com buying guide for Autumn 08. Like most buying guides from men.style.com many of the pieces featured are expensive and unaccessible but there are cheaper alternatives out there and lets face it, it’s a buying guide not the gospel.

Jump through for my top 3 from the list.

Celeb Style: Jay-Z does Geek Chic 2 Months After Matt Damon

By Will Reid on July 3rd, 2008

jayz.jpgLast Friday, Jay-Z turned up on Jonathan Ross and as the guestlist was revealed, I was delighted to see good ol’ Jay-Z rocking the Geek-Chic look. But sadly for Mr. Z (can we call him that?) Matt Damon had tried the look over two months before. Usually an all-round innovator and owner of his own label, I have come to expect more of this man with those infamous 99 problems.

Okay, okay- maybe Im being slightly sarcastic but let’s be honest; that beige jacket is rather horrific. However, I’m liking the ‘Globe-trotter’ scarf tied into the loop of his jeans and with quotes like “home was like the cliché of rough…when I was nine I saw someone shot for the first time” and “my favourite is heartfelt music… I listen to Coldplay, 50 Cent, Kanye West,” what’s not to love?
