Green is the new black over at Levi’s, who’ve just revealed the WasteLess jeans range for Spring/Summer 2013. Revealed at a slick launch bash at London’s Farmiloe Building in Farringdon, Brandish went down for a sneak peak at the new eco-freindly denims. Each pair of Levi’s WasteLess jeans is made from a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content, roughly 12 to …
Under…denims? That’s the new underwear push from Diesel, who’ve put together a new range of “Underdenim” trunks for men who like to wear their slacks low with a bit of cheek on show, otherwise known as the “Most Dumbest Fashion Fad Eva”. Misleading marketing be-damned, they’re made of cotton rather than denim (which we’re certain your knackers will be thankful …
Supreme is at it again this time partnering up with Levi’s on their new capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2011. The collection features a number of standard staples from the American denim giant, including Levi’s 505 Zip-Fly Jean, a Chambray Work Shirt, a Trucker Jacket in leather and suede, a Denim Down Vest and Denim Bell Hat. Although I love the …
Levi’s latest collection aimed at cyclists has been creating a lot of buzz this week and it is not hard to see why. Their debut cycling line draws on their workwear heritage, while incorporating technical functionality. One of my favourite pieces from the collection is the Trucker Jacket, based on a 1967 design. It’s long cut with a slight drop …
I have a bit of a confession to make. I pretty much never wash my jeans…Once in a while I throw them in the freezer, but that’s about it. But what if you could save millions of liters of water just by washing your jeans less? It seems this is the very idea behind Levi’s new Waterless line. Apparently the …
At one point the majority of denim brands Levi’s, 7 For All Mankind, Earnest Sewn, and J Brand offered at least one pair of organic cotton jeans and while it may have seemed like a gimmicky sales tactic, cotton is one of the worst offenders when it comes to the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. In fact the Sustainable …

In the later months of last year, the Brandish team began to see previews from the Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi denim collection.
Now, upon Lady Gaga wearing the orange love-heart suit in Sunday Times Style magazine, we are pleased to tell you that the line will be in-stores this March.
Denim has been revolutionised in recent times and the last few years have seen denim be used by menswear designers to make a true statement. Whether skinny, twisted, acid bright faded, torn, studded, boot-leg: some might say that ‘jeans maketh man.’ And they wouldn’t be far wrong.
So, what would these jeans say about a male? They lace up (with white leather might I add) the side and turn up at the bottom. The have a diamond pattern detail on the back pockets and come from one of the coolest labels of the moment.
Yay or Nay my friends? Vote after the jump.
Topman has revealed their latest ‘trend’ (read: mini theme-based collection) and with a name like ‘Berlin Wall,’ I was expecting rough skinny jeans and a fusion of This Is England skin-head with a kind-of Soviet, military cool. As always, the high-street label has delivered…
The latest Buck magazine hit the stands last Friday and amongst its Gallic-themed pages is a great piece on the importance of denim this S/S. Highlighting the same Acne/Lanvin collaboration I’ve been talking about here recently it seems that there’s nothing to stop a full on indigo revolution once the sun finally breaks out.
The massive queue, deep in denim conversation.
As we arrived to Neal Street this morning the queue outside the Diesel shop snaked around Earlham Street and almost spilled out onto Seven Dials.
The fuss was for Diesel’s Dirty Thirty limited edition jeans, created to celebrate thirty years of diesel, modelled by Daisy Lowe and retailing for just £30 you can see why so many people turned up for the one-day only sale.
Life begins at 30, or so they say- I’m 24 and I beg to differ. Come my 30th birthday I will become a recluse until my 50th and can rejoin society with a cane and pipe, middle age just isn’t cool. However for a denim brand a 30th birthday is the prime of its youth so lets all send our warmest birthday wishes to Italian denim fiends Diesel.
American Apparel, the brand synonymous with androgyny and men in skintight jeans, has just launched their Unisex Oxford Shirt. I have three sisters and I’m no stranger to borrowing the odd jumper (actually, that would be reclaiming,) and I have in past borrowed Ralph Lauren shirts and vintage blazers for a better fit and a slimmer silhouette. Russell Brand, a man who walks on to a talk-show in a jersey tunic dress and girl’s jeans from Topshop but still manages to be a sex god, would be a great example of unisex dressing at its best but what do you think? Is it worth the sartorial risk when you might see a girl in the same tee as you?
Would you go Unisex- vote in our poll after the jump!
Hitting you up with some more Levi’s action, this time from Japan. Levi’s Japan has launched a new service for all of those who wanted custom jeans straight out the box. Following in the footsteps of Nike I.D it is now possible to get custom jeans direct from Levi’s with the ability to pick the cut, wash, wear, and details such as rivet colour and paint spatters.
As you can probably tell comments are down on Brandish, so when Nick emailed me asking about grey skinny jeans I clapped my hands together in excitement… A clothing hunt!
I went looking all over the internet for some grey skinny jeans with reasonable success. Hopefully there’s something here for you Nick and if anyone else wants me to don my web-hunting gear or just have a chat about clothes send me an email to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.
