Paul Hamill describes himself as “student, stylist, blogger, writer and retail assistant”, we invited him to give us his picks for this summer and he came good with a selection of staples that will make a good addition to any man’s wardrobe:

Summer in Glasgow is always a risky affair. Thankfully I met my American flat mate who invited me to stay at her family home in Seattle for a few weeks this summer. My saviour! And with this blissful invite comes the summer wardrobe shop.

Every once in a while you stumble upon a trusty outfit formula which you can use and reuse to your heart’s content. For me it’s bright tights, vintage skirts, lace ups and a men’s cardie, when I’m stuck for inspiration I can wear umpteen variations of this outfit before I run out of looks.
Back to menswear, it seems that CA has stumbled upon a failsafe outfit formula, his combination of vintage tee, chinos, quirky belt and cardigan can have a dozen different permutations but still look fresh.

Celeb Style: Radio 1′s Big Weekend with Irwin Sparks, Dan Gillespie and Usher

By Will Reid on May 12th, 2008

irwinsparks.jpgAt Radio 1′s Big Weekend this weekend, the line-up was that of a rather well-dressed bunch of bands. Madonna excluded. Looking at the photos from this Maidstone extravaganza of fun and frolicking, Irwin Sparks of The Hoosiers stood out as a Brandish-reading sartorialist. He has obviously caught on to our nautical debate and performed in a striped polo and chinos. Also interesting was the appearance (as in attendance not attire) of Usher who wore a Burberry-inspired leather jacket with oversized studs on top of a black vest (see Dan Gillespie of The Feeling.)

Pics below and more celeb style later- although that of a different genre.

Uniqlo’s Vintage Chinos

By admin on April 9th, 2008

Chinos are the perfect mix of jean and trouser, but it was excruciatingly difficult to get hold of great fitting chino’s as they’re still a rather American item. This all changed with Uniqlo’s Vintage flat front chinos. Whilst the price point is usually the selling point with Uniqlo – and at £25, it’s a great price – the detailing is what makes this piece stand out.

From the metal button to the deep herringbone pattern inside the pockets, it’s clear that Uniqlo have thought about how to make a great piece rather than how to make a cheap one. You can buy these from Uniqlo’s site for £24.99
