River Island Menswear Press Day AW09

By admin on May 1st, 2009

Knitwear and accessories are the shining stars of the River Island Menswear collection, they’ve got a great range of chunky cardigans, arran-style jumpers and we love the rocket cardie below!

We caught up with the RI team at the press day and couldn’t resist taking a photo of their outfits. We spoke to James Lawrence who does the bags for the brand, and he told us he was really excited about all the range, and the nylon shopper (last pic) was declared group fave.

Top Five: Will’s Summer Wants!

By Will Reid on March 26th, 2009

Last summer I was down at Shiny Towers and the gloriously hot days were spent writing, chatting with my fellow Shinies, trying on Drop-Crotch jeans and touring the streets in search of aspirational street style. But despite all the joviality I didn’t quite anticipate the weather (although I refuse to take the blame for that one- when was the last time we had a proper summer?) and ended up the innocent victim of SSS (that’s Skinny jeans in Summer Syndrome.) This summer I am determined to get it right, which is why I have compiled this list of fashion needs (okay, wants.)

Since Christmas and a happy accident haircut, I have been living with a bit of an 80s asymmetrical style. My super-thick hair means that I have to use extra-hold products which are effective but grease-free; the wet fro is never a good look! I will need lots of hairspray to combat the heat.

Living up to the Brit reputation of talking about the weather this post is all about how ruddy freezing cold it is! With temperatures so low some offices are abandoning their dress codes and allowing staff to come in casual clothes Will Smith shows us how to stylishly do formal in winter.
Standing in front of the Brandenburger Tor in snowy Berlin for his latest film ‘Seven Pounds’ Will looks smart in a tweed jacket, checked knit and patterned tie. See after the jump for where you can pick up the look in the shops.

Love The Look: Toby Jones/ Truman Capote in ‘Infamous’

By Will Reid on January 5th, 2009

capote.jpgDuring the Christmas season, I was lovingly entrusted with a vintage copy of Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood.’ The book has definitely lived up to its reputation and the two films that have been made about the creation of the book (‘Capote’ starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and ‘Infamous’ with Toby Jones) offer not only a great plot but awesome fashion.

To achieve the look, buy simple jumpers in bright colours and wear them with trenches and blazers in base colours such as khaki, black and brown. Add either jeans or cords (if you want to edge towards a more formal look,) and bold accessories. Over-sized tortoiseshell sunglasses, fedoras, three watches at a time. Why not go all-out?

Will’s Christmas Outfit Picks: Argyle Jumper from Gap

By Will Reid on December 18th, 2008

This outfit is based around an Argyle jumper from Gap and with argyle being one of the key trends of this season (it was featured on the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana as well as Thom Browne,) the jumper is a perfect foundation for a great Christmas look. Take Levis Skinny 511™ jeans and add in a pair of gold shoes by Common Projects for some Christmas cheer!

See after the jump for full product details!

Rokit khaki jumper

By admin on October 22nd, 2008

rokit green gold khaki jumper.jpg

Click image to enlarge

Yesterday’s Love the Look outfit featured a slouchy green cardigan which acted as the showpiece for a palette of neutrals.

Rokit’s jumper is a similarly warm shade of khaki that would look great teamed in a similar fashion with grey trousers, tan shoes and maybe with a gold watch to bring out the rich tones of green. It’s very thick which suggests it is probably army surplus and would make a hassle-free substitute for a jacket and will only set you back £15.

Love The Look: patterned jumper

I recently stumbled over Glam Canyon and saw this charming picture of a eccentricly dressed young man in London.
It’s so chirpy I want to frame it and have it on my desk, and the pose is just fantastic. The jumper obviously makes the outfit but the glasses and textured cords give balance to the look and stop it from becoming a showpiece. A true fashion inspiration!

A.P.C stripe jumper from Start

By admin on September 24th, 2008

apc stripe jumper knit start nautical.jpgStripes are a bit overexposed in menswear generally but A.P.C’s knit jumper still feels fresh.
The classic nautical style looks less gimmicky in grey and oatmeal and the stripes are just the right width.

The four-button sweater is available from Start for £239, they recommend wearing it with a suit jacket (two buttons done up) which is a handy bit of advice. I’d team it with faded grey jeans, a pale cloth scarf and a pair of white canvas pumps but I’m boring like that!

Terry Hall signs Fred Perry limited edition jumper

By admin on September 19th, 2008

terry hall specials fred perry limited edition jumper modculture.jpg
As if I needed a reminder about missing The Specials secret gig at Bestival by being asleep in a tent, Modculture’s Dave has given me the heads up on a great competition he is running from today.

Terry Hall himself is signing (the tags) of a Fred Perry knit to mark the release of a special 500-limited edition version of their v-neck jumpers. They are being made to the specification of the jumper Terry wore on the first issue of the Face, with a deeper ‘V’, oversized laurel and they will be available in maroon and black.

Outfit Pick: Gauche, Awkward and Isaac…

By Will Reid on September 16th, 2008

outfitpick2.jpgWith a new of series of Heroes about to begin, the unfortunate death of Yves Saint Laurent and the number of Clark Kent-y characters about in the most recent blockbusters, my style radar is tuned to the male who’s gauche, awkward and geeky in the best way possible. Think of 1970s art students carrying open sketchbooks around Paris, Isaac Mendez of Heroes lounging around his studio in over-sized chinos and Marc Jacobs around his grunge era (which means big glasses, baggy jumpers and lots of corduroy.) I took a risk with mixing the denim shirt with dark jeans but the two items together are a wearable look that anyone can pull off.

Check out the product details after the jump and see how geeky you can get this winter- Argyle jumper anyone?

Missoni button-neck knit

By admin on September 10th, 2008

missoni knit jumper.jpg
Autumn has arrived and with it comes all those lovely warm autumnal colours like aubergine, pumpkin and burgundy. Missoni‘s knit button neck jumper combines all of these with a buttercup yellow, a navy and a grey to stop it looking too fusty.
The deep v-neck will allow you to show off a t-shirt, clashing shirt, or even dare I say it a polo neck. Get it from Browns for £430; winter layering has never been so hot.

Rykiel Homme kiss jumper

By admin on August 19th, 2008

rykielhomme.jpgWith the V-neck takeover that happened last winter, this year looks to see a comeback for the good ol’ crew neck and one of the best is this Rykiel Homme jumper.

It’s rare to see an oversized graphic jumper look understated, but RH have managed just that. Due to the relatively sombre colours of the design, it manages not to look too OTT whilst remaining eye catching. For a sweater £199.50 is a little steep, but it does make for a great statement piece so it would be worth the investment.

Adam Kimmel polo neck

By admin on August 12th, 2008

adam kimmel grey jumper knit polo.jpgPolo 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. Polo necks conjure up images of saintly vicars and friend’s dads, not high fashion.

Adam Kimmel‘s slouchy cowl-neck version of the polo is perfect for fellow fence-sitters, you can roll it up if you’re feeling brave or keep the collar down. The marl-y grey colour is versatile and smart enough for formal looks, and the black trim adds definition to the silhouette. Snap it up for £270 from The Corner.

French Connection’s vivid blue cashmere jumper

By admin on August 11th, 2008

My new favourite colour is a rich dark blue that falls somewhere between cobalt and navy. Not as obvious as a bright Yves Klein blue but not as trad as straight navy, the colour looks great with the remainders of a tan.

French Connection
‘s new cashmere range includes a gorgeous crew neck in this exact shade for £85. Use it to pep up a wardrobe of neutrals, the slim fit is flattering and wont give any excess bulk to your silhouette. Block colours will also look good with the blue, try out a vivid orange or coral, dove grey or lemon yellow.

Alexander McQueen paisley jumper

By admin on July 18th, 2008

alexander mcqueen paisley jumper embroidered knit.jpgLike deck shoes paisley is one of those things I always hated as a child but looking at this Alexander McQueen embroidered jumper I’m starting to come round.

It helps that the paisley isn’t the usual stodgy red and green which belies its interesting history but a rather more delicate affair. The branchlets lend a south-east Asian feel and the placement on the shoulders is quirky without being too obtrusive. The slight snag? The $1,225 price tag. I’ll have to make do with M&S dressing gowns for now I guess.
