Don’t sweat like the rest. Rock a vest!

By jsmith on July 3rd, 2009

Being on public transport in the glorious-but-annoyingly-timed-to-coincide-with-the-working-week heat wave is pretty grim. Buses, trains and especially the Tube are hotter than Bin Laden’s pager number; if you were naked you would still be wearing too much. Clearly you can’t rock out with your cock out on public transport, however you can compromise with Granddad’s favourite, a vest.

There are a few considerations to take into account before you don a sleeveless wonder, jump through to see what you need to know.

It’s different for boys: Jamie Hince, more shabby than chic?

By admin on December 1st, 2008

Looking at this image of Jamie Hince stepping after a night at girlfriend Kate Moss‘ flat I started thinking about how the Croydon-born model always manages to look chic and stylish is shabby rock-y vintage while Hince looks a little raggedy.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the sight of me on a Sunday morning in pjs scuttling to the newsie is far, far worse but the point I’m trying to make is that women are armed with an array of stylistic tools. Mixing mussed up hair with a fancy dress, or shabby jeans with a flashy jewellery has long been Moss’ preserve. When a man dresses scruffy he isn’t in possession of as much to work with to make those well-worn basics look smart, by replacing the well-worn suede boots with a pair of new shoes or the Britpop-era jacket with a duffel coat Hince could have gone from scuzzy to artfully skewhiff.

Outfit Pick: Braving the Blue with Burberry!

By Will Reid on October 10th, 2008

I’m currently sitting in a small room in India with a fan spinning in an attempt to cool me down and a mosquito net blanketing the balcony door. I have to admit it’s pretty hard to imagine wearing trench coats right now. But, I’m a proud Brit and nothing is going to get in the way of my winter-wardrobe appreciation.

This Outfit Pick shows you how to rock a modern, edgy winter look that will have you feeling protected and warm but not boring and hoping no-one spots you in your M&S beanie.

The trench adds a sharp shot of buzzing colour and the t-shirt and boots add an urban gypsy vibe that’s very on-trend. The umbrella…well, that’s just for fun.

See after the jump for full product details!

Outfit Pick: Trapper Hat Hot

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

outfitpick4.jpgI have to admit that despite being a lover of high-fashion millinery from the likes of Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy, I just can’t wear hats. They look truly horrific on me.

But the whole Brandish team is currently infatuated with an item that looks set to take off in the coming months (of snow and cold.) That item is the Trapper Hat.

In this week’s Outfit Pick, I’ve added a few eccentric pieces to a Topman Trapper hat and created a look that anyone could pull of by balancing the quirky tweed bag and dancing brogues with a classic beige trench also from Topman.

Iggy- That’s Not What We Meant By The New ‘It’ Shoe!

By Will Reid on October 2nd, 2008

Iggy Pop has, in previous seasons, been declared by designers as high-fashion inspiration. And for many valid reasons; he rocked skinny leather trousers long before Kate Moss, meddled with blood long before Angelina Jolie and played the effeminate rocker with crazy hair long before Russell Brand.

But when Brandish’s own Isabelle reported on the menswear trend of ‘Medges,’ (men’s footwear with a Wedge heel,) no-one was expecting the trend to filter down to Crocs.

As good old Oscar Wilde once mused, “fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Well, there’s no time like the present!

Brandish Poll: Would You Wear Unisex Clothing?

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!

James Franco Does Agyness Deyn in Interview October 2008

By Will Reid on September 22nd, 2008

Franco’s cover (left) bears a striking resemblance to Agy Deyn’s Pop editorial of S/S 2007

Oops- I genuinely only just realised that the title of this post could be interpreted pretty freely. Anyway, let’s all just grow up and listen to the explanation.

Basically, after a sell-out premiere issue featuring Kate Moss in a cat-suit, Interview magazine has decided to use James Franco on the cover of their October issue. Photographed by Mikael Jansson, this is a huge step for Franco and after his role as the latest Gucci-guy, he has cemented himself as a fixture on the high-fashion scene. This cover however, reminds me of Agyness Deyn’s editorial in the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of Pop Magazine.

Read on for more pictures and a full editorial review with highlights including Raf Simons, Karl Templer and Ryan McGinley.

Roberto Cavalli unlikely to do another diffusion line

By admin on June 2nd, 2008

cavallihm.JPG

Roberto Cavalli’s H&M diffusion line was a major success sales wise but he’s unlikely to do another range, if a recent Telegraph interview was anything to go by. In the interview, Cavalli also stated that he “detest(s) men – dressed or naked” – which goes a long way to explaining why his menswear range for H&M was so awful.

His main gripe was with celebrity diffusion lines, on which he says “I’m very much against all these celebrities doing diffusion lines…Kate Moss’s collection was badly made, stupid and bland; you see things like that everywhere. You can’t just buy things for the label – it’s ridiculous.”

‘Man Alive’- Style Magazine, Sunday 16 March

By Will Reid on March 19th, 2008

Style When I opened Sunday Times Style’s latest male issue, I came upon a great editorial called ‘Man Alive.’ It focuses on shoes and suits but the contents are elevated by Lucy Ewing’s styling and Paul Bliss’ photography.

Among an issue containing Kate Moss semi-naked on a beach and Clive Owen in semi-shadow, it is testament to its brilliance that the editorial made the front cover of the magazine. Particular highlights included the ginger model leaping excitedly in the air. Clothing ranges from Giorgio Armani to Miu Miu and the models have been picked to represent different types of people.

Dissizit! Kate Moss T-shirt

By admin on January 8th, 2008

Katemoss_cokatshirt
Every once in a while, it’s nice to look at items that you can wear in the
forthcoming seasons. While coats are all well and good (we’ll be featuring a
lot more during this week), you need to start stocking up on t-shirts. Preferably
ones that stand out. Everyone knows how annoying it is to see someone wearing
the same t-shirt as you.

Everyone’s bored of Kate Moss’s face in the
papers by now. But absolutely no-one’s bored of her face on t-shirts, as
evidenced by this Dissizit!
tee
. While I like this tee, the incredibly unsubtle “Kate Moss loves La
Coka Nostra” on the back brings it down a notch. Anyone references to Kate Moss
and Cocaine – even if it is actually referring to an underground hip-hop group -
seem incredibly outdated. If you show off this side of this shirt, you’ll look
like the guy who just started wearing Pete Doherty Hats. In other words, a
prick.
