We’ve already lost the ability to promote our reading habits on the bust thanks to coverless-Kindles (maybe for the best if you’re a Fifty Shades fan…), and there’s nothing more obnoxious than blasting out your favourite tunes through a smartphone loudspeaker. The true gent flaunts his impeccable taste in more subtle ways. When it comes to music, how about these …
Nickque Patterson is setting the London fashion world alight- slowly but surely. As a stylist, DJ, designer and all-round fashionisto persona, Nickque is one of those people for whom every street is a real-life catwalk. Whether in front of the camera as a model or working behind the scenes orchestrating an edgy editorial, Patterson knows the trends and makes fashion happen.
Ever so fortunately, he was excited to be interviewed for Brandish and after the jump we have his full interview. Prepare for shoes described as ‘elite,’ Nickque’s self-decided role as the “Jesus of Fashion” and grooming-secrets (just check out the hair!)
We love him!
Perma-pout Ed Westwick had a sharp slicked-back do, which always looks good for formal occasions. Use pomade and a fine-tooth comb to acheive this look, we like Black & White Lite for this.
Mark Ronson was snapped recently out and about in London looking particularly colourful in a bright cobalt jacket.
The latest issue of American GQ looks set to be an exciting issue. While not the most fashion-forward of magazines, GQ manages to provide consistent style advice and it usually has at least a few good features.
In this issue, we have Justin Timberlake posing in a variety of stylish albeit bland looks and one of the most interesting looking features looks set to be their ‘Top 10 Most Stylish Men in America’ feature. Check back soon for the entire list with pics!
Who’d a thunk ol’ Petri Dish was on You Tube?! Well here is showing us how to dress like Mark Ronson.
This seems to consist of a Specials-lite look of Ray Bans, retro jacket and pork pie hat. The respected music journalist doesn’t always hit the menswear mark, but to his credit he is self-depreciating enough to be loveable… Give it a watch!
Mark Ronson has always been a tiptop fashion star and this year has been awash with his sartorial influence. From the stripes and Mod look of early 2008 to the sharp tailoring in kooky fabrics. From the 50s rock-star (read: Elvis) to the fur-clad aristo-geek.
Now, Ronson is taking it upon himself to lead the way with the trapper-hat wearer, ‘Lightspeed Champion,’ look as first established by our (soon to depart-) Jason Dike.
Pretty soon there isn’t going to be a single celebrity left who doesn’t have their own clothing line and even Patrick Kielty will be down at Brixton Market trying to flog a 3-pack of Kielty socks for a fiver.
Last night The Royal Opera House, London saw the GQ men of the year awards. I wasn’t invited let alone nominated which of course draws a question mark over the validity of the event, however that aside it still proves to be a great opportunity for the men of London and the world to get up and be counted for style and talent. Some of the more interesting awards went to the following: International Man – Josh Brolin, Most Stylish Man – Brandon Flowers, Designer – Christopher Bailey, Politician – Boris Johnson (really? I mean seriously though, really?) and Radio Personality – Chris Evans (again: really? I mean radio yes but personality? I wouldn’t have thought so).
Along with sisters Samantha and Charlotte, Mark Ronson took part in a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar which saw them dress up as the various characters from Wes Anderson’s Royal Tenenbaums.
It’s a staple of every man’s wardrobe (or at least it should be), but who wears the classic white shirt with the most style?
This year’s Brit Awards saw a pretty varied spectrum of red carpet-dressing. The men either went for smart-casual monochrome (Take That) with accessories such as elaborate ties and glittery belts or glorious brights (look out for my other post on Mark Ronson and Mika.) But one group of well-dressed individuals stood out. The Arctic Monkeys proved to be the attention-grabbing act of the night, whether it included their drunken thank-you speech (or slur,) their winning the Best Group of the Year or their spectacular look.
