2009-fashion-forecast.jpg

men.style.com have posted their fashion forecast for 2009 and it looks like we will be wearing floral print with holes in our shoes this year. As forecasts go I think it’s a little hit and miss, yes plaid is here to stay and mismatching suit jacket/pants seem to be pretty hot right now but I can’t see myself in a pair of perforated winkle pickers I’m afraid.

Jonathan Smith Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

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.

Will Reid Entertainment, Grooming, Lifestyle & Gadgets Leave a Comment

Men.Style is great for tongue-in-cheek features and their
is not only perfectly-timed but a great read and (just to add some sense of validity to this post,) a good laugh. The feature aims to make you “a legendary host” and the site has got a few of America’s most refined movers ‘n’ shakers on-board to add their two pence to the Christmas-party-nightmare cup.

If you are planning to throw a party and you really hope it lives up to the obviously high-expectations of those who actually enjoy Christmas (which I hope is all Brandish readers!) then you have to read the full run-down of the guide after the jump!

Alan Flusser: fuck you clothes

Jonathan Smith Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

Men.style.com has posted this rather good video of Alan Flusser, the tailor and author of many books on style and fashion. Flusser talks about style rather than fashion and how you should base your clothes on what suits you fit, colour and fabric wise- something I wholeheartedly agree with. The temptation is always there to wear something that is very cool, but looks like a sack of crap off the hanger and on you, let’s face it we all do it.

admin Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News 1 Comment

Apctopten

The Top 10’s on Men.Style.com are pretty
fascinating, purely because they give you a tiny window into a designers life
and influences. As you’d expect, most designers name a Mac and a piece of
clothing amongst their top ten essentials, but some are more abstract than
that.
