Outfit Pick: Gauche, Awkward and Isaac…

By Will Reid on September 16th, 2008

outfitpick2.jpgWith a new of series of Heroes about to begin, the unfortunate death of Yves Saint Laurent and the number of Clark Kent-y characters about in the most recent blockbusters, my style radar is tuned to the male who’s gauche, awkward and geeky in the best way possible. Think of 1970s art students carrying open sketchbooks around Paris, Isaac Mendez of Heroes lounging around his studio in over-sized chinos and Marc Jacobs around his grunge era (which means big glasses, baggy jumpers and lots of corduroy.) I took a risk with mixing the denim shirt with dark jeans but the two items together are a wearable look that anyone can pull off.

Check out the product details after the jump and see how geeky you can get this winter- Argyle jumper anyone?

Go all Clark Kent with these glasses

If you’ve been suitably superhero inspired, you’ll know that the starting point is the specs. While metallic blues look great on their own, geeky spectacles give it an extra boost. These Salt Alec glasses transform any Joe Schmoe into Clark Kent, who dressed much better than Superman.

While these are great for all those who do need glasses, if you don’t you might feel like a fraud. Just how a lot of people feel like idiots wearing sunglasses – preferring to squint when they walk down the street – you’d surely feel a bit silly pretending to need glasses. If you can get past that then these are retailing from £142.

We at Brandish have talked about this and I drew the unlucky straw of having to tell you that your outfit, you know the glasses and print-knit jumper; well you’re just a little late for the geek-chic look.

Check Luella S/S 2008 or Raf Simons A/W 2005 and you’ll see that while you were in leathers and manmade fibres doing Bourne Identity, we were rocking Clark Kent shades and vintage ties.

See after the jump for more information and pictures.
