Mark Ronson dons blue jacket from Topman

By admin on May 21st, 2009

mark ronson blue jacket topman.jpg

Mark Ronson was snapped recently out and about in London looking particularly colourful in a bright cobalt jacket.

Good news for fashion fans on a budget, he isn’t sporting a designer label; after a chat with the paps Ronson apparently divulged that his jacket was in fact from high street staple Topman! Cobalt blue makes a hot statement and is an easy colour to add to an existing wardrobe. What do you think? Tell us on our Twitter or our Facebook wall!

Edited to add -We spoke to the Topman press office and they told us this: “No it is brand spanking new, not even in store yet he spotted it when he was at our New York press day, it is due in store the first week of June”

Brandish Watch + WISHLIST: ‘Priceless’ S/S 09- Topman Tailoring by Antony Price

By Will Reid on May 18th, 2009

Thumbnail image for Picture 2.pngTopman is great for its designer collaborations and its ‘Priceless’ range, designed by celebrated fashion designer and tailor Antony Price, delivers every season. The range has just gone up on Topman.com and with its wonderful waistcoats, brilliant blazers and perfectly pleated pants (in the American sense of the word,) I can’t wait to get a piece of the action! The look on the left is almost exactly what I outlined in my ‘Will’s Summer Wants’ piece only last month and the peach colour is perfect for summer.

Other standout pieces include the taffeta suits in purple and green as well as the ‘ice grey chintz’ suit. Most jackets are around £140 with trousers at £60. Why not enlighten us as to what you plan to invest in by chatting to us on Facebook?

P.S- The ‘Swim Skinny’ suit is a fash-gasm waiting to happen!

Eco Chic or Recycling Freak? Coke Can Tux

By Will Reid on April 8th, 2009

coke-can-1.jpgWhen you see a photo of a teen wearing a prom tuxedo jacket fashioned entirely from Coke cans, you have to wonder what the teen in question does with their free time. This guy, a Napoleon Dynamite-lookalike with a penchant for commercialism, has decided to venture into eco-friendly fashion and after the jump you can witness the entire creation of the waistcoat and jacket (plus bowtie!) from metal to masterpiece. Sadly, this look is more Sideshow Bob than Stella McCartney.

Which High-Profile Model Inspired Brandon Flowers’ Brits Brilliance?

By Will Reid on February 26th, 2009

wenn5250728.jpgWhen Brandon Flowers stepped onto the stage at this years Brits 2009 in that jacket I died as I felt my own wardrobe implode with sheer joy. His jacket had major shoulder pads covered in long feathers and the overall look was a mixture of indie legend and an American footballer who had been given a makeover by Jean Paul Gaultier.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many people shared in my amazement and when I set my Facebook status to something Brandon-related immediately I had replies from fashion, music and technology writers all claiming to be either in love/ mad with envy or seeing double. I, myself, felt that I recognised the jacket and it wasn’t until the next day that I realised the model Brandon had obviously been taking style tips from…

Love the Look: Winter wool smarts

By admin on February 2nd, 2009

How to do class in the freezing cold… Take one well tailored grey coat, a battered but sturdy pair of boots, slim wool trousers and top it off with a pair of tinted specs. When temperatures plummet there’s nothing like a pair of thick wool trousers to keep you warm and if you really feel the cold slip on a pair of long johns.

It might take you a while to get that impressive beard but if you’ve got the basics sorted hopefully the rest will follow.

Duffle coats pick from Schott, Topman and Peter Werth

A quick Wiki of ‘duffle coat’ offers a great backstory and an explanation of why I was spelling it ‘duffel’. The name refers to the Belgian town of Duffel, where the thick woollen fabric used in making the coats originated. Marvellous fact!
Duffle coats make a great winter layer, and as February approaches you can pick up some bargains in the sale that won’t be out of date by next winter. The traditional colour is camel, but that can look a little indietastic, so go for muted greys, navys or good old black.

Jack Wills ‘Classic British Tailoring’ Collection

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Jack Wills is a label synonymous with public school brats and pink polo-shirts with faux-Rugby Club logos. However, beneath what appears to be a rather empty and shallow brand image, every now and then Jack Wills releases a couple of items that can be put together to form fashion-friendly looks. I, myself, have a skinny scarf that is a perfect blend of stripey knit and dove grey silk- it never fails to improve an otherwise boring look.

In time for the Christmas period, the high-street chain has released their ‘Classic British Tailoring’ collection featuring gems such as the Lewington Tails and Oakington jacket.

Click image to enlarge, full product details after the jump

Winter has crept up on us and while you can’t beat a classic pea coat there seems to be little else on offer on the high street.

A wool bomber jacket is a more modern looking shape and goes well with newer silhouettes like double pleat trousers and cuffed jeans. The wool fabric gives the shape a smarter and more structured look than its sporty counterparts and more importantly is a lot warmer. Take your pick from double and single-breasted, zip-up, vintage, retro and modern there’s a bomber for every taste and wallet.

moncler grey wool jacket puffa puffer start.jpgMoncler have done for the puffa jacket what David Beckham did for ponytails when he moved to Real Madrid.

Their Gamme Rouge collection for women has elevated the simple puffer to a work of art, and while this Moncler jacket (£785) isn’t on a one-way journey to Kookytown it’s pretty special.

Featuring an impressive 220 grams of down in each jacket and a hidden elasticised waistband this ain’t no NAFF Co 54 market offering that will leave you shivering at the bus stop. The grey wool is a smart choice easily taking you from the rugged outdoors to the city in one fell swoop.

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.

Tavi Tells The Truth: A Man And His Gold Coat

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

goldjacket.jpgTavi, the girl-wonder-blogger with a fashion sense so incredibly brilliant I feel like crying when I ‘m reading her blog, has found this picture and decided that she wants to marry the wearer of this great, gold jacket.

I’m okay with just being his friend but it is an undoubtedly fantastic image.

Now, the only question is where to find that jacket.

Stussy x Schott – yeah seriously

By Jonathan Smith on September 22nd, 2008

stussy-schott-wool-onestar-2.jpg

Not since the Aguilera/Bratman marriage has the world seen such an unlikely pairing, street fashion brand Stussy has gotten together with Whetherspoons favourite Schott to work on this jacket. Made from cow hide and wool the coat looks… really good… am I the only one who’s genuinely shocked? Pencilled in for release in November, there is no mention of price but at a guess I’m thinking- not cheap.

Reader request: All Saints’ mac

By admin on September 10th, 2008

all saints women's mac.jpgI’ve had a few emails since our last reader request which I’m still working through, one of which was a really lovely message from a reader called Ade who says: “I’ve seen a very nice mac in All Saints. At present, they only do a women’s version.”

He wants to know whether you think this mac would look good on men and if All Saints have any plans to do a men’s version. As far as the actual All Saints mac goes I say why not just buy the women’s one?

Topshop’s skinny jeans are renowned for being the best kept secret in many a man’s closet and it’s not like us women haven’t been raiding men’s wardrobes for aeons. The mac has a loose unstructured fit which would suit both men and women. I think it would work well as part of a smart layered outfit with skinny or slim trousers.

I’ve got in touch with the All Saints press office but while I wait for their response what do you think?

Email me your thoughts and questions to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.

If you’ve already got a half dozen zip up nylon jackets and fancy something a little different and smarter then snap this Oliver Spencer jacket up from Sarah Coggles for the sale price of £117.50. The warm dove-tone is less harsh than a straight grey and the linen mix ramps up the formality a notch.
