Now that the Strokes seem to be on indefinite hiatus, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. has decided to turn his hand to suits. Working together with stylist Ilaria Urbinati, the suits will be available from autumn at Urbanati’s LA based store.

In other Hammond news, there was an interesting article on dressing sharp in The Quietus. In it he states that smart is the new casual, his distaste for underdressed CEO’s (Steve Jobs, I’m looking at you) and how he was the most fashionable in the Strokes.

Expose your inner dandy with this Unity shirt

unityshirt.jpgDandies are back in fashion (according to Mens Flair/L’Uomo Vogue). If you’re getting weary of your wardrobe why not add some eye catching accessories? If you’re looking for ways to jazz up your shirts, you could start with a neck tie. Or better yet, just get a shirt with a matching neck tie, like this Unity striped shirt.

Call me crazy, but I think this would look great in the workplace. Obviously not in the power meeting with the CEO, but any other day is fine. Sure, you might get heckled slightly for using some blue sky thinking to step outside the box but it’ll be worth it.

Would you buy from a company that had an unsavoury owner?

I bring this up because the Guardian has an article about American Apparel’s founder Dov Charney, focusing on a recent sexual harassment case of his and talking about his previous sexual harassment cases. Just how much does the owner of a company affect whether you buy their product?

On one hand American Apparel don’t use sweatshops and make affordable ethical clothing, although the quality on some of the pieces could be improved. But on the other hand, you have an owner who has had multiple sexual harassment charges brought against him, a marketing campaign that is offensive to some and – despite what some might say – devoid of irony. It becomes a question of which is the lesser evil and the answer isn’t a simple one.
