John Malkovich, transcending fashion

By jsmith on July 14th, 2009

Does cool transcend fashion? In John Malkovich’s case yep it certainly does. Malkovich belongs to a band of bus pass eligible actors that every young man should aspire to when becoming an old man. This motley crew of old geezers romp around southern Europe spreading their own brand of style and finesse and even when they drop a sartorial clanger like Malkovich’s off white suit at the 44th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (yeah me neither) they still come out looking Ex Lax smooth. There is a certain substance to Malkovich’s style that over powers the clothes that he wears, meaning this suit takes on a casual style embodied by the wearer and creates a look that only a lifetime of Being John Malkovich can buy.

What do you think, can you still look cool wearing less than the hottest threads? Is who you are more stylish than what you wear? Let us know via our Facebook page.

Displaying two very different menswear styles Daniel Merriweather and Tinchy Stryder put on their best togs for their appearances onstage at Wireless.

Daniel Merriweather, best known for his vocals on the Mark Ronson version of The Smiths’ ‘Stop Me’ opted for a tweedy jacket, shirt and tambourine, accessorised with a pair of aviator shades. Tinchy Stryder who recently acheived mainstream success with N-Dunz collaboration ‘Number One’ sported a t-shirt from his own ‘Star In The Hood’ range as well as a thick chain and Timex watch. Both very good efforts, and very different, hurrah!

Love The Look: Menswear Maestro Michael Bastian at Fashion Rocks

Condé Nast’s fifth Fashion Rocks event was hardly devoid of well-dressed men: Valentino, Justin Timberlake (who’s fashion-savvy has become a matter of debate…well, for me anyway,) Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford (who’s rumoured to have scored an up-coming VMAN cover.) My point is that, for a menswear designer, Michael Bastian more than held his own in this pantheon of celebs.

I love his vintage-looking blazer as well as his loafers and with an open shirt and a pair of well-tailored grey shorts, he is a vision of relaxed but high-fashion cool.

Notice the subtle pocket-square (an emblem of any well-dressed male) and devour this style inspiration.

Love The Look: Joshua Jackson Looks Pretty Good For An Ex-Dawson Creek Star

By Will Reid on September 4th, 2008

joshjackson.jpgThis week’s ‘Love The Look’ sees Joshua Jackson, and boyfriend of Diane Kruger, looking incredibly dapper in a Hollywood screen-star suit. I’m guessing that, by the waistcoat, details and fact that just about every Hollywood man at the moment is hooked, that the suit is by Tom Ford but who care’s about a lack of originality when you’ve made this much effort!

The details are the key: the perfect black buttons, the patent glint of the shoes, the bold bow-tie and silk (yet classy) lapel of the jacket. Joshua was attending the Jaeger-Le Coultre Gala at the 65th Venice Film Festival and while most men would look a bit pants next to a Chanel muse and seasoned-wearer of Dior, Elie Saab and Prada, Jackson proves he’s a worthy sartorial opponent.

Isle of Wight Festival: Tim Booth, Iggy Pop and Pharrell Williams

By admin on June 16th, 2008

tim booth james isle of wight festival.jpgWhatever happened to Tim Booth?

These pictures taken at the Isle of Wight festival over the weekend are a million miles away from the foppish youth I remember from the early ’90s. I know twenty years have passed -god forbid anyone should ruthlessly pick apart my looks in twenty years time; but that is never an excuse for a shaved head and overcompensating beard. Masking baldness with a freshly razored head is so outdated now that I’d prefer to see a combover than a baby soft shiny pate.

And is it just me or do I spy a touch of Just For Men on the goatee? I’m not even going to start on the soul patch. See after the jump for some more inspiring looks from Pharrell Williams and Iggy Pop.

Kim Jones Short Fashion Flick

By Will Reid on April 3rd, 2008

youwear.JPGFashionista, the fashion gossip powerhouse, has stunned me with an exciting piece of news. I read about it just over a week ago but I did a bit of research and feel that I can just about explain these rather brilliant goings-on.

Diane Pernet, the extravagant fashion persona and founder of blog ‘A Shaded View on Fashion’ has come together with Dino Dinco to create a project varied enough it will excite anyone with even the slightest knowledge of fashion. The project is called ‘You Wear It Well’ and it is a touring exhibition of short fashion films made by some of the great clotheshorses of our time.
