Perfect summer layering: John Smedley Blue cardie

Smedley_Blue_Cardie.jpg

This is the point in the year when layering becomes essential. With your peacoat professionally cleaned and (hopefully) being relegated to the wardrobe until autumn, what you need now is some flexible options. One of my perennials is a Sea Island cotton cardigan by John Smedley. Heavier than the usually slinky Sea Island fare, this cardigan will keep the breeze at bay whilst allowing you to breath comfortably during those sweaty Tube moments. I’ve literally had a black version of this cardie for years, actually re-dyeing it black when it starts to fade. It’s a great shape – short on the waist – with chunky, retro-looking buttons.

Paris Menswear Fashion Week began last Thursday and now that is has finished we are able to fully consider all the fashion inspiration from both on and off the runways. From Jefferson Hack and Alber Elbaz to male models and rake-thin boys wearing baggy cardies and vintage Chanel, the shows are an excuse for men to be outrageous and the results are often brilliant.

Brandish Inspiration: Topman Latest Trend- Block Heads

Click To Enlarge

For AW08-09, Topman has created a video showcase of their latest collection- Block Heads. Model James Mclean poses in what Topman tells is a trend “inspired by the look of a Dickensian gypsy mixed with influences from the deep south.” We get a glimpse of what we will no doubt be wearing by Christmas and the video really projects what the look is all about- a poetic Grunge with not a slight hint of Luke Worrall.

“Bib front t-shirts are worn under a waistcoat and double breasted cardigans, topped off with a black padded donkey jacket for a military feel. Big accessories for this trend include a selection of trilby hats and scarves worn with tweed trainers or brogues.” Winter’s never looked so good!

Check the video here.

Beauty & Youth x Lacoste and Jessica Simpson… kind of

beauty-youth-lacoste-cardigan-1.jpg

Does the world need anymore cardigans? No but the world doesn’t need another drunk blond hick, but we have Jessica Simpson and I love her. These cardigans and Jessica Simpson do have a few things in common: we don’t need them, there’s nothing really special about them, we have loads of them but we kinda like them.

Folk Drawstring Cardigan/Corset

With tights and make up all seemingly now accepted male staples, why not corsets? That’s what Folk have sneaked into the mainstream with this drawstring cardigan. Initially I thought the most interesting part of this cardigan was the contrasting squares on the neckline creating a lapel-like effect. A look closer revealed something much more interesting, are corsets in for men?

Sale pick – Material Boy double breasted jacket

Given Material Boy’s Topman Lens collection, you’d assume that every boutique would be snapping at his clothing. It’s an understatement to say that this hasn’t been the case. One of the only places to buy Material Boy is Bespoke Boutique and as luck would have it, they’re having their summer sale. The pick of the bunch is this double breasted jersey jacket.

What do you think of Roger Federer’s Wimbledon look?

Roger Federer turned heads on court at Wimbledon sporting a refined retro outfit of gold-trimmed cardigan, polo shirt and tailored shorts. It’s a departure from the on court trend of wearing hi-tech sportswear and harks back to a more genteel era of tennis.

Men A La Mode summer sale

With most sales selling out within hours these days, it’s refreshing to see that the Men a la mode sale still has stock an entire week after it started. There’s so many pieces on sale, you’ll probably be suffering from ‘embarrassment of riches’ syndrome. I just made that syndrome, but I bet someone out there has it.

Robert Geller S/S 2008

German Born, New York based designer Robert Geller is a very new kid on the block. His label only launched in A/W 07, after working at Marc Jacobs, revamping Cloak and creating a women’s wear range called Harald. The following sentence will sound a little odd, but I’m going to look at a S/S 2008 range while we’re actually in the same season.
