Brandish Alumni Jason Dike Writes for Selectism- Column Madness!

By Will Reid on March 5th, 2009

jason.jpgFlicking over my most frequented pages recently, I came across Jason Dike’s column at Selectism. Jason was on the Brandish team when I first started out over a year ago but sadly he left last September, leaving us all awfully down-in-the-dumps.

However, Jason is now writing a brilliant column for the equally brilliant Selectism and we can’t wait to see more of his stuff!

Brandish Does Boulevard: The Second Bout of Street Style!

By Will Reid on October 27th, 2008

This gallery showcases some of the hottest street style looks I’ve seen in quite a while. Granted, some of the photography is a bit shifty (and the background of sun-washed Camden during the summer is enough to provoke resentment from most Brits,) but these looks are on-trend and rival a lot of professionally styled magazine editorials.

Brandish loves street style and there will definitely be more to come in the next few months. Just prepare for rain drops on the camera lens.

Jason Dike… These are your best bits!

As we wave goodbye to Jason this week I’ve decided to bring you a compilation of some of his best bits from Brandish.
Jason brought us gems like Generic Man, a mild obsession with Taz of Sa-Ra and original pieces like the post on Bobby Womack‘s glasses. Chuck in a sense of humour that brought us stories like: ‘Ronaldo’s suit: Yay or Nay? I’m just kidding, of course it’s nay‘ and you’ve got a writer who will be sorely missed, goodbye Jason!

Last but definitely not least who can forget the controversial Mustang skinline jeans video? Don’t click the link. Seriously. Don’t.

Jason’s departure means we are looking for writers, if you think you’ve got what it takes email me at isabelle [at] shinymedia.com

Polyvore: The Beloved Tool is Brandished!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008

polyvore.jpg

One of my own punk-inspired ‘sets’ combines Dries Van Noten trousers, a Uniqlo t-shirt, an image of inspiration and a black crayon with Vans for some high fashion-DIY.

Polyvore has long been the talk of fashionistas and our sister site, Catwalk Queen, runs a ‘Style This’ competition based completely around the image-making tool. Whether it’s a Vivienne Westwood tie or a Topman ring, styling outfits has never been easier! Granted, we men have it a bit harder in terms of finding a wide variety of items but just search for ‘man bag’ and you have a good page of man-bags.

And best/worst of all? After you’ve styled your outfits you can even buy everything you’ve included in your image.

Look out for more Brandish outfits or watch the Polyvore tutorials and send your own to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com!

Brandish does Boulevard: Neal’s Yard

By Will Reid on August 8th, 2008

Here on Brandish we love a bit of sartorial realism. While Jason deals with cool buys and indie-labels, I tend to veer towards the bright lights of magazines and the high-octane glamour of ridiculously expensive items (WISHLIST anyone?) and the glossy adverts they inhabit.

I do love the high-street and so, with editor’s camera in hand and a trusty phone in the other (who knows what pickle one could get into asking for photos on the streets of Camden?) I set off to find London’s fashionistos.

Justin Lee Collins? Bob Geldof?! Brandish’s Top 5 Unlikely Male Style Icons

By admin on July 15th, 2008

Round these parts we know who looks good and who doesn’t, but who are the more unlikely chaps working individualistic looks that we admire?

Will Reid: Although Justin may be prone to a too-tight t-shirt, The Friday/Sunday Night Project presenter’s sheer charisma and the fact that those tight tees usually bear a cult band logo mean he’s earned his place on this list. With his faded flares and large Aviators Justin has made many a Friday night worth staying in for, and if he gets his shaggy-yet-manicured locks cut, I for one will weep.

Ute Ploier Shorts from b Store

By Will Reid on April 1st, 2008

UTE SHORTS.jpgFrom Marc Jacobs to Topman, McQ to Uniqlo, short shorts have undoubtedly secured their place as the menswear item of the season – and possibly the year. If I said they needed an adopter than Brandish is the orphanage. We have given you examples of short shorts in a spectrum of colours, fabrics and prints and Jason even took it to a political platform!

If politics is your thing, these PVC shorts from Ute Ploier are the David Cameron of this trend (and by that I don’t mean they have their own cringy webcast or a penchant for innocent smoothies.) Quirky, original and edgy these shorts would be perfect for night with a crisp white shirt and dove grey blazer or for day with a plain white t-shirt, raspberry American Eagle jumper and white plimsolls. Most of all just relish in the fact that you can wear PVC short shorts and still be in fashion.

Black shorts, Ute Ploier, £155
