Being overly negative about other people’s dress sense is something that I’d happily leave to Trinny and Susannah but one particular menswear trend grates on me like nothing else.

They might seem innocuous but bootcut faded and or distressed jeans are a massive bugbear of mine. Richard Hammond, part of the Top Gear triumvirate of bad denim, is the perfect example of how not to wear jeans. The overlong shirt cuffs and ‘rugged’ leather only add to the effect and make him look out of date.

Is this a fashion crime or do you dig bootcut denim? Take our poll after the jump.

Let me know what your fashion pet hates are, and we’ll feature them on Brandish. Just send me an email or write on our Facebook Blog wall!

Checkbreak: Vintage faded Hawaiian shirt

By admin on July 24th, 2008

ono hawaiian shirt checkbreak shirt vintage print.jpgAt the Arcadia Christmas press day yesterday I was reminded that flannel/check/plaid is going to be huge this autumn, both Burton and Topman had lumberjack-style shirts in their collections.

As much as we’ve been plugging madras on Brandish maybe it’s time to take a checkbreak for a month or two so you don’t get too bored of the trend.

Printed and patterned shirts look cool in the summer and the vintage Ono Hawaiian shirt from Rusty Zipper will see you into the cooler months teamed with a sharp blazer. the faded print is eyecatching without being too gaudy and will look great teamed with black or grey suit trousers or for a more casual look a pair of bright straight-leg jeans.
