This is what a £60,000 t-shirt looks like

Gerald Lynch News, T-shirts, Polos & Shirts 1 Comment

I once bought a vintage second-hand Prince Purple Rain tour t-shirt on eBay for £80. It felt like the most extravagant garment I’d ever bought at the time at a score short of £100 (and even more so when it actually arrived, stained and moth-eaten as it was). But £60,000 for a t-shirt? That’s just madness. But that’s almost what …

GOOD BEARD, BAD BEARD: Is facial hair sexy?

Gerald Lynch features, Grooming, News 3 Comments

Razors at the ready folks; a new scientific study claims to have proven that your chin chaff is about as attractive as draping a mangy cat over your face and then combing yesterday’s porridge through it. OK, so that may be a tad extreme, but there’s a fair amount of research backing up the anti-beard brigade this time. Haven’t we …

Paris Menswear Fashion Week began last Thursday and now that is has finished we are able to fully consider all the fashion inspiration from both on and off the runways. From Jefferson Hack and Alber Elbaz to male models and rake-thin boys wearing baggy cardies and vintage Chanel, the shows are an excuse for men to be outrageous and the results are often brilliant.

Dude! Grab your board and celebrate Stephen Sprouse

What’s the betting that Kanye West wants one of these? He’ll probably get one too, but for us laypeeps these are a little out of our price range- pretty sweet though. The uber exclusive Steven Sprouse x Louis Vuitton skateboards cost a whopping $8,250 and come with a wicked bad trunk. Released this week at Vuitton’s SoHo flagship store, the skateboards and associated merchandise are all covered in the trademark Stephen Sprouse graffiti seen on the Marc Jacobs collaborated bag back in 2001.

Newsflash: Kanye West Designs Trainers for Louis Vuitton

Will Reid Designer Spotlight, Footwear, Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

After months of rumours and hipster-praying, Hypebeast has confirmed the rumour that Kanye West is to design a pair of trainers for Louis Vuitton. The trainers appear rather bland (they’re just white high-tops,) but they might prove to be a valuable base for many a winter outift. Kanye tells the online fashion magazine that the trainers are to be released in June of this year.

I wait with bated breath!

Men.style.com
has compiled their top 25 stylish moments of 2008, sadly it doesn’t include me, grey acid washed, one shoe, a bottle or rum and a whole load of vomit- a classic look to span decades. What is even more upsetting is that rapping retard Kanye West features in this list and as 2008 draws to a close is still alive, so my prayers have gone unanswered.

Kanye watch update!

At the start of the week we saw Kanye wearing a piece of his own clothing line Pastelle, we can now inform you that Pastelle will be released to us normal people this coming January. “Hurrah!” Kanye fans cheer, I sigh in disbelief. I sigh further because we are not done with the College Drop Out’s assault on the fashion world as his signature Nike’s the Air Yeezy will be released in March. The Air Yeezy, a bastardisation of Air Jordan’s, Bapestars and pure evil from the mind of Mr West can be seen on the man himself, along with another Pastelle piece through the jump.

WISHLIST: MR P T-Shirt by Tim Lahan

Will Reid Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

As much as I hate label-whores and Louis Vuitton/Gucci-style designs that are made only for the monogram printed across them, I have to admit that my Sartorial ‘id,’ survives vicariously through Kanye West’s ‘Universecity’ blog.

Often, we catch (not very) subtle glimpses of candy-coloured designer goods but sometimes we’re treated to the odd indie-flash buy. Like this ‘Mr P’ t-shirt designed by Tim Lahan. It’s quirky, fun, lighthearted and a piece that you could wear with anything.

Just how far can you go with your platonic man love? I mean it’s one thing to merely admire someone for their sense of style, it’s another to copy his every outfit. That’s the dilemma that the site Dress like Kanye West is posing as it threatens to go a step too far into freaky adulation.
