Brandish Poll: Do you Dare? Bum-Bags!

By Will Reid on March 3rd, 2009

n684944737_1400897_1301033.jpgAt a disco the other night, the theme was ‘City vs. Country’ and stuck for ideas, a friend and I decided to go as tacky tourists. Cue vintage novelty braces, high-waisted denim shorts and charity shop shirts.

My charity shop bum-bag has been the focus of much attention. While it was only a joke item, a few friends have since been talking about it and I wonder if it could be worked into an actual outfit.

Outside of an outrageously-themed disco, I think I will wear the accessory when I go to India in March with cartoon-print Harem trousers, white plimsolls, a plain white vest and vintage sunglasses (at right.) Practical and high-fashion!

Yay or Nay?

Bespoke suits on the web from A Suit That Fits

It’s the future! So if you need a bespoke suit now you can buy it on the internet. A Suit That Fits offer a bespoke service online and will deliver the finished product within 6-8 weeks. I would advise spending the extra £20 it costs to go and have a fitting, as that’s what really makes it a bespoke suit and will make all the difference to the finished product. You can buy a suit from around £250 upwards, and even if you don’t have to wear suits at work it is a good idea to try to get a well cut suit for important occasions. After about two years of searching my tall rake of a boyfriend found a gem of a suit for £13 in a charity shop. So if you’ve got bags of time go for the charity shop option, but if you’ve three months give A Suit That Fits a go.
