Just Do It: DIY Project #1- Cartoon Trousers

By Will Reid on April 9th, 2009

cartooncropped.JPGWith a month long holiday in India coming up, I knew I had to get some stand-out holiday wear. I thought about the different eras of recreational wear and began racking the (fashion) history books for inspiration- jumpsuits, capri pants, high-waisted slacks, kaftans, tunics, dungarees…the list goes on. But then, as with all moments of fashion genius, America’s Next Top Model came on the telly and I was reminded of the genius that is Jeremy Scott.

As a result I was led to a picture of a friend wearing a pair of Jeremy’s cropped print trousers and I fell in love. In order to recreate the look, I bought a pair of Topman’s cartoon-print pyjama bottoms (£15) and tied bits of string around my lower legs. I then folded the pyjama fabric under the string to achieve a cropped effect.

Because the print is so loud, you should stick to basic items in muted colours. And even if you don’t get the look that you wanted, I assure you that making the trousers is almost as much fun as wearing the finished edition anyway.

How to: The perfect turn up

By Jonathan Smith on September 17th, 2008

Be they around your wrists or your ankles this year it’s been all about the turn ups, which is why we can all thank American GQ for giving detailed instructions on how to do the perfect shirt sleeve turn ups in this September’s issue. The technique is as follows:

1- Flip your cuff back, then pull it up toward your elbow, allowing the sleeve below to turn inside out as you go. Stop when the cuff is just above your elbow.

2- Evenly roll the inside out shirting that is now below the cuff until it’s covering half the cuff, locking in the sleeve.

3- Leave the rest of the cuff out so that it subtly flies out of the roll.

4- Admire your new look in the mirror. Briefly. Now swagger out the door.

Stripy_jumperuniqWith all the clothes that we recommend to
you, we feel it’s only fair that we show you how to look after the clothes once
you’ve got them. As you may or may not know, you’re not supposed to put jumpers
on hangers. Doing so eventually widens the neck and gives it lumps, losing its
original fit. When you’ve got a lovely jumper like Uniqlo’s stripy nautical knit (reduced to
£14.99) you want it to last as long as you can. With that in mind we’ve decided to show you how to fold a jumper.

to fold a jumper and a Harold Bishop look-a-like
guiding you through each step. [Via Videojug.com]
