Grey on top, blue below. It’s like a colour version of a mullet, business at the front, party at the back and works really well.
Moncler have done for the puffa jacket what David Beckham did for ponytails when he moved to Real Madrid.
Grey cardigans are a bit of an obsession for me, and with reason. The colour looks great with neutrals or brights and it makes the perfect unobtrusive cover-up.
I wrote about Farfetch last week on Catwalk Queen but proportionally speaking it’s far bigger news for menswear.

The Desert Boot is a design classic and is one of those items which never really goes out of style. I recently saw a well-dressed chap on the street sporting a suede pair with some tracksuit-bottom style cuffed trousers and it made a great outfit.
It’s a simple look but Jaakko’s tonal outfit posted on Hel Looks a few days ago hits the fashion spot. Breaking up the monotony with a patterned scarf is a wise move and he shows that black and brown can be worn together (more about this soon) without incurring the wrath of the fashion gods.
Autumn has arrived and with it comes all those lovely warm autumnal colours like aubergine, pumpkin and burgundy. Missoni‘s knit jumper combines all of these with a buttercup yellow, a navy and a grey to stop it looking too fusty.
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.
Conjuring up various images from NYC joggers in the ’80s to hip young things in tri-blend, grey marl is infinitely stylish. All Saints’ Dip Dye t-shirt has two-toned sewn panels creating a pleasing layered effect without the bulk.
Neat mod-ish tailoring and large retro buttons make for an appealing jacket which is neither fusty nor faddy.
When Jason featured Generic Man recently I oohed and aahed at the simplicity of it all. As someone who loves COS, Uniqlo and designer like Margaret Howell and Patrik Ervell the pared-down stylings are right up my street.
Polo necks are still too Alan Partridge for me; as much as I love our man from Norwich the thought of actually wearing one fills me with dread.
August is traditionally the month when France shuts down, goes on holiday and people start thinking about ‘La Rentrée’. You could call it the French New Year as the whole country gets gripped by ‘Rentrée’ fever, not just schoolchildren but grown adults too.
Checks have been on the fashion radar for a while but now they seem to have snowballed and there’ll be no escaping the trend this autumn.
A perfect grey v-neck cardigan is something to be cherished, I never take off my Uniqlo men’s one but this one from J Lindeberg is pretty special.
In the London paper today, they’ve stated that silvery grey is the colour of the season. I doubt it will be, due to grey shirts showing sweat more prominently than other colours but that’s not my main steak with this article. More problematic is the colour they’re teaming it up with – pink. Back when men started wearing pink, it was a statement of a softer side, the kind of man who cries watching Sex and the City before going back to chop some wood and crush a beer can on his forehead.
I’ve only recently got over my deck my deck shoe inverse snobbery, which makes it even harder to figure out whether these metallic Lanvin deck shoes are the most awesome shoe ever, or just really lame.
Grey and neon is a pretty good colour combination, I like the way the grey geeks up the neon a bit to remove the nu-rave connotations.
Everyone has had that person they wanted to impress; the girl, the guy, the parent, the boss. And what better medium than fashion? Whether it’s the Louboutin slutty-stiletto (for the girls let me say) or one of Armani’s finest suits, the right look can make or break a first date.
