men.style.com 2009 Fashion Forecast

By Jonathan Smith on January 8th, 2009

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.

Check out the whole run down here.

men.style.com: The Most Stylish Moments of 2008

By Jonathan Smith on December 31st, 2008

menstylishmoment.jpg

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.

Men.Style- ‘The Ultimate Party Guide’ by The Upgrader

By Will Reid on December 8th, 2008

brandish.jpgMen.Style is great for tongue-in-cheek features and their ‘Ultimate Party Guide’ 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’re hoping it lives up to the obviously high-expectations of those who actually enjoy Christmas (which I’m sure is all Brandish readers!) then you have to read the full run-down of the guide after the jump!

Alan Flusser: fuck you clothes

By Jonathan Smith on November 3rd, 2008

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.

Flusser goes on to say that style transcends fashion and should be timeless and once again I agree that constantly chasing fashion is too expensive and too much hard work; it’s far better to find a good look for yourself and then augment it as fashion moves on. Alan also discusses men’s catwalk fashion and how it alienates many men from following or being interested in menswear, which I think we can all agree is a fairly accurate statement.

Check out the video below to hear from Alan himself on style, Hollywood and Thom Browne.

The season is a changing

By Jonathan Smith on September 26th, 2008

fall08.jpgAutumn is coming, the leaves are beginning to drop, the nights a drawing in and I’m retrieving my knocked off Burberry scarves (yes- scarves, three in fact: navy nova check, grey nova check and the classic beige nova check, don’t try to hide your jealousy) from the back of the wardrobe.

So what does this mean for us real folk who don’t go to the borders to paint the changing of the seasons? Well it means we go out and buy new outfits of course! Not everything lasts a year in fashion so don’t be relying on last years wardrobe to see you through this one- I feel a men.stlye.com buying guide coming on- and here it is, the men.style.com buying guide for Autumn 08. Like most buying guides from men.style.com many of the pieces featured are expensive and unaccessible but there are cheaper alternatives out there and lets face it, it’s a buying guide not the gospel.

Jump through for my top 3 from the list.

men.style.com suit you up

By Jonathan Smith on August 27th, 2008

00001fff.jpgIf you are in need of something a little smarter and a lot more expensive than the Topman suit you bought for your court appearance then there is a guide to the coolest cool suits of A/W 08 over at men.style.com with this seasons theme being broad shoulders and wide legs, are we venturing back into the realm of shoulder pads? Sweet lord let us hope not.

I’m a massive advocate of the slimmer cut suit so this is perhaps not the guide for me but I’d say if you’ve got the money then these are a safe bet. Check the full selection out here and jump through to see my 3 favorites.

The best welly wearers at Glastonbury 2008

By admin on July 3rd, 2008

wellycollage.jpg
We’ve focused on celebrity style at Glastonbury, but what about the rest of the people in attendance? Men.Style.com have a slideshow focusing on the best wellie wearers at the festival, mixing celebs such as Dan Gillespie Sells and Luke Worrall among regular festival goers.

For what it’s worth, I think Dan Gillespie Sells pulls off the welly look best as he seems to have colour co-ordinated his outfit around the colour of his boots. A close second is the guy on the left and in a distant third is Luke Worrall, who looks like he’s on his way to a Fall Out Boy tribute band audition.

The Sartorialist’s ‘Done Right’ on Men.Style

By admin on June 18th, 2008

paleblueblazer.jpg‘Done right’ is one of the most interesting features on Men.Style.com right after the monthly 10 rules and Glenn O’Brien’s blog. The Sartorialist’s style insights are always a good read, even if they’re aimed towards the slightly older gentleman.

This feature’s main style tips are pale blue blazers, vintage shoes, shorter (not short!) shorts, spring scarves and white shoes. White shoes are a difficult one as they either make you look like a Mediterranean style icon or an English pimp, depending on how they’re worn. Pale blue blazers are a great look and I think more people would wear this if menswear stores started taking a few more risks with colour.

Seeing as we’ve been bleating on about the merits of short/mid length shorts for months now, what’s taking it so long to hit the high streets? I don’t know if my eyes can take anymore combat Cargo shorts.

Lucas Ossendrijver’s 10 rules of style

By admin on May 29th, 2008

lanvindesigner.jpgIn this month’s Details, Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver delivers his 10 rules of style. While we’ve heard some of these rules before, an interesting one he brings up is that ‘You shouldn’t adapt to what people expect you to wear’. I think that’s an interesting point and one to remember when you get stuck in a style rut.

A couple of his other rules are simply variations of this answer, but it’s always good to know what matters to one of the world’s top designers. I didn’t really understand his last rule where Ossendrijver states that:

“I don’t really like wallets. I prefer that you carry your money in your pocket or put everything in a bag and carry it there. Just keep it simple.”

Surely putting all your money and cards into a wallet is simpler than putting it into a bag?

Top 20 Cannes fashion moments

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

redford.jpg

Men.Style.com has a retrospective of its top 20 Cannes fashion moments. Most of the fashion moments come from the 60′s and 70′s, the 80′s has two looks, the 90′s has three and the noughties only get one, that being Brad Pitt’s Tom Ford suit.

The fact that there was only one choice from the 00′s must prove that male movie stars have stopped making an effort. It’s like they’re all afraid of being featured on the worst dressed list and have decided to dress in black suit and tie wherever they go. I’m resisting the urge to go on a rant, but you know there’s a problem when sartorial dullard Daniel Craig gets feted for his fashion sense.

Váronique Nichanian’s ten rules of fashion

VÁRONIQUE NICHANIAN.jpgRules, rules, rules. Who needs them? Apparently men into fashion clearly do, otherwise men.style.com wouldn’t have monthly features on the ten rules of fashion. This month is Váronique Nichanian’s turn and the Hermes menswear designer chimes in with her ten rules of fashion.

A.P.C’s Top Ten Essential items

By admin on February 18th, 2008

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 an Apple mac and a piece of
clothing amongst their top ten essentials, but some are more abstract than
that.

Take A.P.C’s Jean Touitou, for
example. His top ten features rice, water, books, Olive Oil and soap. Unlike other designers, his choices aren’t brand led. So there’s no 61" TV’s like Ozwald Boateng or customized iMacs like Paul Smith. Touitou’s choices are similar to his design philosophy in that they’re simple and uncluttered, yet not plain in any way. His
most interesting/bizarre choice however, is white sheets. He says he uses them to ‘cover
shitty art in a hotel room’.
