Could the Nexus 6 be a phablet made by Motorola?

Despite Google selling Motorola to Lenova earlier this year, reports say that Motorola is still responsible for manufacturing the Nexus 6 for the tech giant, a 5.9-inch phablet aptly codenamed Shamu. Android Police, the original publisher of this rumour, also claims that the Nexus 6 will come with a fingerprint scanner and will go on sale some time in November. …

Top 5: Skinny Summer Ties

toybreaker silk caviar tie bsd.jpg

The Times has a feature at the moment detailing the changing size of the common tie as we go through decades of economic change. Apparently John Lewis has announced “a dramatic inch-loss of nearly 25 per cent in width over the past six months” with its most popular ties. Charlie Allen, the famous tailor Brandish recently had an exclusive sit-down with over the new ‘n’ improved England kit, told the Times that “the impact of economic turmoil on tie design can be traced back through the previous recessions of the 20th century. While postwar Britain and the Swinging Sixties embraced exaggerated prints and widths of up to 5in, the downturns of the 1930s and 1980s saw sizes reduce to as little as an inch.”

Woody Allen vs. American Apparel: Dov, Drama and $5 million!

When American Apparel president Dov Charney tells the press that he’s “not sorry of expressing myself,” it usually means that he has done something involving hip fashion, knee-high socks and models who are dubiously dewy-skinned. However, in this case, Charney is responding to reports over…

Love The Look: Artist Terrence Koh for United Bamboo

terence koh for united bamboo 2.jpg

This week’s Love The Look features the wonderfully odd Terrence Koh (artist, fashionisto, sperm-collector, sculptor of crap and other bodily fluids.) Koh has just been made the face of hip label United Bamboo and the ad campaign for this season is an extravaganza of tinsel, blurry shots and classic tailoring with quirky details.

The image above and the rest of the campaign images after the jump will all debut in the Spring/ Summer issue of Fantastic Man.

Topman Latest Trend: ‘Berlin Wall’

Topman has revealed their latest ‘trend’ (read: mini theme-based collection) and with a name like ‘Berlin Wall,’ I was expecting rough skinny jeans and a fusion of This Is England skin-head with a kind-of Soviet, military cool. As always, the high-street label has delivered…

Doctor Who? Matt Smith- Actor and Possible Style Idol?

doctorwho

Matt Smith, a 26-year old actor and relative unknown, has been made the new Doctor Who and if not for anything else, he will be known as the youngest ever Doctor. Smith has appeared in theatre productions ‘That Face’ and ‘Swimming with Sharks.’ Smith is creating considerable drama with his appointment as The Doctor and my favourite (albeit unreliable) Daily Mail is reporting suspicions of a betting-related scandal.

With his thin frame, gauche mannerisms and androgynous looks, I think we have a potential style idol on our hands. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook wall.

AskMen.com Explore the Sartorial Savvy of Gianni Agnelli

portrait-06.jpg

Gianni Agnelli is a man constantly sourced as style inspiration to fashionistos across the world. From his flair for fine tailoring to his edgy take on accessories, this man had a look that was extremely well-executed and so timeless that it is still being copied on the catwalks of today. Agnelli’s grandson, Lapo Elkann, continues to wear all of Agnelli’s bespoke suits and it is no coincidence that Elkann has, in recent years, been hailed as a modern style icon by the likes of US Vogue and Esquire.

The article is full of great style advice such as, “if you want to dress like an iconoclast, your first step is to dismiss all of the old rules of fashion — just like Gianni Agnelli did when he wore his wristwatch over his sleeve cuff.”

David Walliams- Ladies Man, Transvestite, Children’s Book Author?

David Walliams, the man who shot to stardom with the launch of Little Britain, has accomplished many things. He’s won a ton of awards, just launched state-side, swam across the English Channel and even been spotted with the likes of Natalie Imbruglia and Kate Moss on his arm. Now, the comedian had decided to write a book for children, ‘The Boy In The Dress,’ about a boy who likes to dress in female clothing and his journey to see the approval of his peers. Illustrated by Quentin Blake, I’m sure it will sell simply on shock factor but it would struggle to be as shocking as this editorial from Parade magazine.

Too Black Guys

too-black-guys-tbg-merchant-fear-1.jpg

I once know a girl that used to believe everything GMTV told her, so when a few people died of S.A.R.S then she was convinced she was going to get it, the same with bird flu, she even stopped using her mobile because of the radiation. A few years down the line and she is perfectly healthy but has come to the conclusion that the News and Amon Holmes may in fact, from time to time, be bullshit. This story has a point, which I am now getting to: Too Black Guys recognises also that the media chats balls and this is the topic for their latest line of graphic tees entitled “Merchants of Fear“. The line consists of several graphic t-shirts depicting media propagated fear and are really cool, but don’t trust me- see for yourself!
