There’s a really interesting article over at The Guardian where Paula Cocozza looks into why Skinny Jeans have become so popular in the UK. They might not be for everyone, but since the mid noughties and in spite of the best efforts to re-market the Boot Cut – Levi’s have recently gone with Boot Cut Skinny – the drainpipes as …

The other day I was idly flicking through the Internet Uber Highway and I came across this LA Times interview with Matvey Lykov the hot new thing with a Y chromosome on the catwalks.
Lastnightsparty.com is ex musician turned socialite photographer Merlin Bronques photo-blog documenting New York’s hottest parties and people. His victims are always well dressed, usually drunk and sometimes topless and as a result the collection of photos provide a snap shot of fashion in motion… whatever that means. The images are far more accessible than that of fashion photography and give insight into the trends currently being peddled across the pond in NYC– a far more useful tool than any forecast.
In the later months of last year, the Brandish team began to see previews from the Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi denim collection.
Now, upon Lady Gaga wearing the orange love-heart suit in Sunday Times Style magazine, we are pleased to tell you that the line will be in-stores this March.
Since I started on Brandish just over a year ago, I have repeatedly examined how trends begin in womenswear and eventually make the leap to menswear some few seasons later. Well now the Ombré trend worked by womenswear designers such as Jonathan Saunders and Prada almost three seasons ago has been dished out in rather glorious spades by designer Robert Geller.
As we move to New York with our menswear coverage, the entire Brandish team has begun searching the shows for particular looks, gossip and moments that have caught our attention. And if there is one designer who has so far got people talking, it would have to be Duckie Brown. This label, designed by Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, has been trend-setting in previous seasons and over the last eight years it has definitely become one to watch for editors and writers alike.
So, with that said, what do you think of the label’s latest headwear designs. Loud, outrageous and not just a bit odd, would you be willing to rock this monumental millinery?

Obedient Sons and Daughters, one of the brands we were looking forward to at New York Fashion Week is closing due to problems with one of their major investors, who is said to be Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt.
With the post-Obama glow making the US a desirable destination again, the pound not doing so badly against the dollar and hot guides like Buck magazine’s current New York issue, you may well be considering a shopping trip to NYC for Christmas or for the sales.
A far cry from the traditional design of the Rolex Submariner, New York based watch brand Nooka has added a couple of new pieces to its Christmas 08 collection. Both pieces sporting interesting design features and high quality construction and materials. These watches are for the man who feels a traditional dial watch is beneath him, though I don’t know how well I’d fair at reading these with a skin full of Christmas Spirit.

It was bound to be a smart affair when Bloomingdale’s reopened their men’s floor in New York yesterday, and who better to have as party guests than the Mad Men themselves?
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.
Moustache gloves. You heard me, moustache gloves. Just in case this hasn’t sunk in: MOUSTACHE GLOVES! In a week of strange pairings Jack Spade has knocked up these eccentric hand socks for the Colette x Gap pop up store in New York. Other than they are available in three colours there’s not a great deal I can say about these because lets face it the pictures speak for themselves, more of which are available over at highsnobiety.com.
My bad! I may have the wrong film but I doubt such a slip-up would result in a look that miserable from Robert DeNiro? Might it be that he’s fed up with films? Maybe he (okay, clearly he) couldn’t be bothered to make the effort to dress up but my bet is that it’s standing next to Al Pacino who, as well as being an arguably equal competitor on the greatest actor front, actually look pretty good!

Calvin Klein have decided to move their menswear catwalk collection to New York this season instead of Milan. The company will still present their collection to retailers in Milan this coming January but the show itself will take place on the ground floor of the company’s headquarters.
Old men should have beards, as soon as you hit 40, along with pipe smoking and walking with a cane, it’s your god given obligation. Which was why I was so impressed to see Sting’s facial hair from his gig this weekend in New York.
The new Batman film, Dark Knight, has been causing quite a stir throughout the film industry. Heath Ledger’s stellar acting, the new and improved Batmobile, the expectations thrust upon Christian Bale- all these things are no doubt exciting but how did the creative edge of this film translate onto the red carpet?
