Trousers London: G-Star wearers need not apply

By Jonathan Smith on October 2nd, 2008

tl.jpgA little while ago our young fashionable upstart Will test drove a pre-production sample of a pair of drop crotch jeans by Trousers London and now the equally young denim brand has opened their online store so you can buy the finished article, fancy that!

Their first line comes as four styles of jean each limited to 150 pairs and individually numbered, costing £180 per pair. The brand focuses on the quality and the sustainability of their materials and looks to be a big player in the cutthroat world of denim. I seriously like these jeans; they are potentially a superior alternative to Levi’s Vintage, Evisu and Edwin. In fact, I think they are far superior to all these brands, which is hard for me to say being a Levi’s die-hard.

If you’re looking to splash out on a new pair of jeans then look no further than the Trousers London website and jump through for more images of all the styles – G-Star wearers need not apply.

Yay Or Nay: Denim Deity?

By Will Reid on September 30th, 2008

Denim has been rife on the catwalks of this season with many big-name designers putting out denim tuxedos, denim waistcoats and even denim shirts (okay, that’s not too odd.) I, myself, have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this timeless fabric and I think it’s safe to say I’ve explored it thoroughly!

Brandish Poll: Would You Wear Unisex Clothing?

By Will Reid on September 23rd, 2008

American Apparel, the brand synonymous with androgyny and men in skintight jeans, has just launched their Unisex Oxford Shirt. I have three sisters and I’m no stranger to borrowing the odd jumper (actually, that would be reclaiming,) and I have in past borrowed Ralph Lauren shirts and vintage blazers for a better fit and a slimmer silhouette. Russell Brand, a man who walks on to a talk-show in a jersey tunic dress and girl’s jeans from Topshop but still manages to be a sex god, would be a great example of unisex dressing at its best but what do you think? Is it worth the sartorial risk when you might see a girl in the same tee as you?

Would you go Unisex- vote in our poll after the jump!

Levi x Fenom

By Jonathan Smith on September 8th, 2008

ap_F23_20080907122243275.jpgFenom’s assault on Denim continues with their now well established collaboration with Levi’s. This seasons offerings are a 207 and a 505 all with the Fenom trademark details such as a new leather patch on the waistband, lining on the rear pocket, zip pocket and of course the Fenom lightening bolts painted on in red. These should be available at select Levi’s dealers soon- possibly by the end of the week.

Henry Holland gives Levi’s the 90210 treatment

By admin on September 2nd, 2008

hoh_90210levisannounce.jpgFrom Catwalk Queen:
House of Holland is once again teaming up with Levi’s for a six-piece capsule collection, which has been inspired by Beverly Hills 90210.

Being a tribute to 90210 , does that mean we can expect a bit of stone-wash, mum-waist, rolled-up jean a la Dylan McKay style? Hmm… perhaps not.

Pieces will feature print and laser-cut jeans style, making use of floral and polka dot designs.

Just like his debut range for the denim brand, Holland will showcase his new collection at his forthcoming London Fashion Week show on September 17th. Only this time, they will go straight into Selfridges for sale the day after the show.

Talk about hot off the catwalk.

Brandish Feature: Drop-Crotch Demo

By Will Reid on August 22nd, 2008

Drop-crotch jeans have been dubbed the ‘future of denim’ and ‘the next skinny jean.’ I am an unbelievable skinny devotee (yes, I am scarred after wearing them in Summer-heat London and not even joking) and for this reason, I decided to road-test an exclusive pre-production sample pair from Trousers London. I ventured into Covent Garden to get the public opinion on whether the jeans were ‘(Drop-)HOT!’ or ‘PANTS!’ Pitying glances, envious looks, angry words and self-styling monologues; the Drop-Crotch jeans certainly attracted attention-but was it praise or pity? Read on for the full report with street-style pics, interviews, comments and product details.

Celeb Style: Steve Jones’ Summer Lovin’

By Will Reid on August 20th, 2008

stevejones.jpgSteve Jones was seen on Monday with rumoured new girlfriend Fearne Cotton. A stylish, undoubtedly TV-friendly pair, I have to admit that I actually think Steve is better dressed on this particular date.

Let’s start with the leather jacket- this staple item is unexpectedly hard to pull off (without looking like a T-Bird; never a good look.) Jones’ version is masculine yet still on trend and the slim-fit detail means that your swagger won’t be shapeless. The white canvas brogues are a perfect summer piece and can be worn on holiday with a pair of shorts or actually in the UK with jeans, as seen here. Add black Wayfarer-style glasses and run the risk of looking like a trend-victim or try a non-Ray Ban style and be all-out original, fashion quirkiness will get you a Brandish A-Grade.

Embrace your inner lumberjack at Oi Polloi

By Jonathan Smith on August 12th, 2008

2626-300.jpgIt’s a good day for a plaid lover like myself, with trend reports claiming that the American working man is ready to have his time in the fashion lime light the new A/W 08 range from Levi’s has dropped at Oi Polloi.

I’ve been a fan of Levi’s Vintage denim for some time now but have always felt that the range as a whole has left a little to be desired, however this year the line up looks great with some of the usual suspect such as 501′s and 505′s and some awesome (you guessed it) plaid shirts.

So embrace your inner lumberjack and check out the full range after the jump.

Brandish Poll: Leg-in a-Sock Style Jeans

By Will Reid on August 6th, 2008

photo.jpgWe’ve made you endure some pretty terrible things on Brandish (see here and here,) and now I present a sneaky snap of New Look’s new adjust-a-length jeans. The trick is you have to button up each different level of the jean depending on what you’re after; shorts, the semi-crop, full jeans or the button-embellished. Is it just me who gasps at this fashion indictment?

Mr Mills (yes that is the third week running we’ve mentioned him but this is truly relevant,) reported on this trend for the David Cameron-trouser-in-a-sock style only last Sunday and he also came to the conclusion that it was a modern-monstrosity.

What do you think?- tell us in the poll below!

Forget stitching, glue is the future

By admin on July 31st, 2008

gluejeans.jpg
Heard of the saying ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’? Apparently Glue Jeans haven’t as they’ve decided to do away with stitching and make their jeans using glue. Guessing from their name, they decided on the glue before anything else.

It sounds like an interesting idea that will garner publicity but the glue can’t possibly withstand the wear and tear that jeans go through. Also the jeans look to be raw denim, which has to be worn for extended periods of time without washing, so look out for a bunch of ‘my glue jeans fell apart’ stories come next year.

Michael Jordan in hand-me-downs

By admin on July 23rd, 2008

Looking at this picture makes me empathize with Metallica fans who watched ‘Some Kind of Monster‘. It’s the moment you realize that someone you previously idolized is just a person – and one with terrible style.

At 6 foot 7, it’s a miracle Michael Jordan can find oversized clothes in the first place, let alone a blazer so big it looks like a hand-me-down. And to add to the misery, his jeans are dragging against the floor. You’ll have to watch Space Jam sixty times to erase this memory.

False alarm! Victoria Beckhams mens line will go ahead as scheduled

By admin on July 15th, 2008

dvbjeans.jpgApparently, news of dVB’s mens denim line being pushed back was either wrong or premature. A rep told New York magazine that the report was inaccurate and that dVb jeans are due to be released on schedule. You can buy yourself some proper mens jeans in Holiday season (I’m guessing that’s around December) this year.

Victoria Beckham’s denim line unwanted by retailers

By admin on July 14th, 2008

1522articleimage_2.jpgIf you couldn’t wait to get your hands on a pair of men’s dVb jeans, you’ll have to wait a good while longer as retailers have refused to stock them. It’s not yet known whether Vicky B will retreat to the drawing board (she might even include some of those skinny jeans she hates) or whether they’ll just lower the price point. Either way, the line has been pushed back to at least next year.

Poll: Would you wear skinny pink jeans?

By admin on July 9th, 2008

uniqlo skinny pink jeans sale.jpgUniqlo are always chock-full of sale bargains, but I wonder if anyone would go for their pink skinny jeans even with the reduction.

They’re down to £14.99 from £24.99, which a good price, but pink is a bit of a tricky colour to wear.

The shade of pink itself is a nice dusky colour which will look good teamed with neutrals in a colourblocking fashion. A nice touch is the dark stitching which gives the jeans a little bit of contrast.

So what do you think of these pink jeans? Would you wear them? Take our poll after the jump!

Sale pick: J. Lindeberg jeans

By admin on July 1st, 2008

jljeans.jpgNow that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.

Something you should know is that J.Lindeberg run their clothing in indie sizes (i.e a size smaller than they are). So although these are labelled as straight leg, they fit like slim jeans.
