Buffalo check is all over the high street, but as we saw yesterday with the Winter Scarves pick a simple change of colour can make it seem more unexpected.
River Island‘s lumberjack shirt (£29.99) is an inspired way to bring a little vim to a workwear outfit. Purple is a great hue for menswear, teamed with a little grey it loses its Sweet Valley High connotations and looks smart and adventurous. Perhaps the most desirable adjectives when describing someone’s dress?

If you’re going to go for this season’s lumberjack trend you may as well jump right in and go for Topshop’s flannel plaid jacket (£60).

It’s lined in faux sheep which means it’ll be wonderfully cosy for the winter and will add bulk to your silhouette in a satisfying way, overly skinny is out now dontcha know? You could play it safe and team it with jeans but why not go for something different and wear the jacket with cuffed chinos and geeky Doc Marten style lace up shoes. Add some contrasting socks and it’ll set you apart from the swathes of men in check.

Checkbreak: Vintage faded Hawaiian shirt

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.

By admin on March 19th, 2008

Fourteen years after his death Converse are releasing a collection of sneakers inspired by the Nirvana frontman. “Distressed in the way Kurt Cobain wore them, the shoes display his hopes, dreams and lyrics from amazing songs such as ‘Come As You Are,’ ” the press release reads.
