Whether it’s pushing popcorn at a local cinema or flipping burgers beneath the Golden Arches, we’ve all had a crappy job at some point. It’s an important life stage; making you appreciate a hard day’s graft, letting you learn that the customer is always right (even when they are pushy, impatient, jumped-up dickheads), and helping you realise that YOU’VE GOT …
Asos have gone live with their new website and judging by all the action on Twitter they’ve been a busy bunch (seriously, there’s about 20 Asos people on there, it’s amazing!) getting up and working.
Hoody £18, Striped Tshirt £10, Belt £10, Chinos £25
Kris Van Assche, creative head of Dior Homme, and luxury sunglasses label Oliver Peoples have already put out successful collections of their collaborative designs but this week has seen the launch of the Spring/Summer 2009 collection.
Nitrolicious has revealed that Alexander Wang, the most recent fashion darling and It-designer, is to launch a menswear collection for Spring/Summer 2010. Adamant that he isn’t simply jumping on the bandwagon, Wang explains that “for us it’s a component that’s always been there..the idea has always been there, I’m just expanding it” in reference to his famously androgynous looks.

The gothic script and dark colours suggest something of a cross between the worst of River Island and All Saints but scrape under the surface of Heartless and you’ll find a great selection of menswear.
According to WWD Sean Connery, ex Bond and cantankerous old man could be the next face of Louis Vuitton.
Hungover, Sleep-deprived, Over-worked, Unfit, Uncared for, Blemish-ridden; not exactly the ingredients for a healthy and handsome male are they? Well now, who cares? After you’ve smudged the Guyliner and poked yourself in the eye with Manscara, you might feel yourself in need of a bit of YSL’s new Touche Eclat for men.
I’m officially torn- Luke Worrall, the almost-supermodel and It-boy of the London Fashion scene has been spotted (now that’s an understatement) with Kelly Osbourne. My question is whether she is a suitable match for a rising fashion star. I’m personally not a fan but then I’m a menswear fashion writer who is rather over-protective when it comes to fashion stars. That’s right Tom Cruise- don’t even try to get near our Aggy!
What a surreal start to the week- trawling Topman for a Monday Morning boost, I was hoping for a few print t-shirts but instead discovered the horror of the new ‘Premium High Waist Slim Jeans.‘ Yes, that’s right; after drop-crotch and MC Hammer (I don’t actually want to touch this) denim, we are being given the chance to try out the latest jean trend. The high waist has failed to get women on side à la skinny jeans simply because they are impossible to wear. In indigo, 100% cotton and selling for £45, I am left wondering if it is really worth the risk. What do you think?

A few weeks ago I spotted something on Nicola Formichetti’s blog but thought it was too vague (being only a set of pictures) and decided not to post.
Snoop Dogg has some explaining to do! Over at Fashionista, they have spotted this rather blatant copy of Jean Paul Gaultier’s ‘Le Male’ perfume bottle for his new Landy Cognac ‘Desir’ bottle design. Snoop Dogg is the latest spokesperson for the alcohol brand but he seems to be running dry of ideas (pardon that shocking pun!) So what do you think? Horrific homage or careless copy?
What can we say? We do try our best here on Brandish and every so often an iconic-well-dressed-mega-major-celeb pays attention.
Topman has perfected the art of online retailing. Constantly changing and adding to their list of online sub-stores, there is a separate store for denim, t-shirts and even summerwear. The latest addition to the website is the Dynamic Denim feature. An essential to every man’s wardrobe, see after the jump for my pick of the label’s latest denim lovelies.
“I’d again like to apologize to those customers who have suffered disrupted journeys or baggage delays.” Well Mr. Willie Walsh, I have just spent a day imprisoned (okay, voluntarily withheld) in my flat. I have also just finished watching ‘The Ring,’ three bags of salt and vinegar crisps and devoured two diet Cokes. On top of this, I have just left the protection of my covers not only because the Jerry Springer marathon finished but also because I feel obligated to comment on the fact that BA has lost my luggage. Sometimes sorry isn’t just hard to say but hard to take.
