Lad Musician A/W 08 highlights

By admin on September 12th, 2008

Lad Musician are clearly a brand willing to take some risks. For example, take their studded gloves (pictured above). Although it’s a look associated with people who wear new rock boots, it looks surprisingly wearable, although it would look better if it were just polka dots. The other risk is their inclusion of denim jackets.

These jackets are risky not because no-one is wearing. It’s risky because everything who is wears them horrifically, matching them to their denim jeans and looking like rejects from a Bruce Springsteen lookalike competition. I’m not about to call it a comeback, but denim jackets might just be a viable alternative for people looking to change it up from bombers and trench coats. Lad Musician is available from blackbird and the site’s webshop.

Lad Musician coming to Blackbird

By admin on July 4th, 2008

lad musician.jpgThis is big. Bigger than finding out Liz Jones didn’t like Glastonbury (Shock Horror! A woman who calls cats ‘fur babies’ doesn’t like a muddy festival). I’m typing this so hard, I’m about to break my 3 year old Toshiba laptop. Lad Musician. Are. Coming. To. Blackbird. Read that sentence one more time and take it all in. I know, I can’t believe it either.

This means you can finally stop putting the Lad Musician site through the google translator – especially as it tends to hand back sentences like “The LAD original material for this season’s T-shirt material is nice and soft textures”. Blackbird are starting to stock Lad Musicians AW 2008/9 collection and it will show up in their online store from early August.

Lad Musician T-shirt – how far will you go for fashion?

By admin on April 29th, 2008

lad musician.jpgThere comes a point in every man’s life when he desires an item no one else has. An item that runs no risk of being worn by anyone else in the country. Would you go halfway across the world to obtain that item?

If you said yes then you’re in luck, because that’s the only way you’ll be able to get your hands on this Lad Musician T-shirt. If you said no, then say hello to a life of every third person wearing the same Debbie Harry Topman tee you just bought. So if you’re travelling to Japan anytime soon, you can pick up this tee for ¥9,450 (£45).

Lad Musician short sleeved shirt

By admin on April 4th, 2008


In theory, everything about this Lad Musician shirt
shouldn’t work. (1) it’s short-sleeved (2)it’s multiple shades of blue and (3)
It’s a short sleeved shirt. This (rather weak) theory doesn’t hold up once you
look at the shirt, which looks great despite all the things it has going
against it.

The different shades of blue look great
because they haven’t gone completely crazy with it. The sleeves are the same
colour and the collar is the same shade as the left side of the shirt, giving
it more of a ‘frontman of a band’ look rather than a ‘cut up pieces of
different shirts and stitched them together’ look. The only downside of this
top is that you have to be in Japan to buy it.

Diet Butcher Slim Skin

Diet Butcher Slim Skin – which
manages to win the awards of best & worst brand name simultaneously – are
another Japanese brand that feature Punk influenced clothing with a
contemporary Japanese twist. With Pinstriped purple coats, wraparound cardigans
and a waistcoat that can be tied at the bottom, it’s definitely more daring
than fellow counterpart Lad Musician. They’re also more clearly influenced by
bands such as The Clash and The Jam, whilst Lad Musician are influenced by The
Rolling Stones.

Whilst this may look like more teasing,
this time Diet Butcher Slim Skin are actually sold in Doors by Jas M.B. They’re only
available in stores, but that’s better than nothing.


Lad Musician coat

Teasing is a horrible thing. What’s the
point of showing people things you can’t have? That’s wrong. Just plain wrong.
So here’s the new
to Japan’s Lad Musician
label, which you can only get from Japan. Teasing is a horrible

Isn’t this jacket pretty though? The cut is
well structured and slim, going with the Rock N’ Roll aesthetic that Lad
Musician pride themselves on. The colour is bold and lends itself to any number
of outfit combinations. If you can pop round to Japan, then the jacket costs a
very reasonable £150.
