Beck on David Letterman

The usually cherubic and stylish Beck Hansen looked a little off when he made it to the TV studios to appear on David Letterman’s Late Show.

There is more than a hint of Kid Rock about his outfit (never a good thing!) with hat and the hair and the cossack-style ankle boots add to the feeling of odd proportion. I think Beck looks at his best with a lean and clean silhouette but if you watch the video after the jump (1.50 mins in) onstage Beck’s still got it.

Outfit Pick: Trapper Hat Hot

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

outfitpick4.jpgI have to admit that despite being a lover of high-fashion millinery from the likes of Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy, I just can’t wear hats. They look truly horrific on me.

But the whole Brandish team is currently infatuated with an item that looks set to take off in the coming months (of snow and cold.) That item is the Trapper Hat.

In this week’s Outfit Pick, I’ve added a few eccentric pieces to a Topman Trapper hat and created a look that anyone could pull of by balancing the quirky tweed bag and dancing brogues with a classic beige trench also from Topman.

Outfit Pick: Chinos, Tassels and Binary Clocks

By Will Reid on September 26th, 2008

This outfit is based around my fashion task de jour (as if I could make that sound any more pretentious!) That task would be to make tasselled loafers wearable while avoiding the Ralph Lauren, polo-player trap so closely associated with this (in)famous yet iconic shoe.

I added items that were almost too pop-y for their own good; a binary watch, a Cassette-belt, a Madonna/80s idol tee from and a pair of Alexander McQueen cropped trousers from Oki-Ni.

This is a blend of vintage and modern that I would be more than willing to wear!

Outfit Pick: Gauche, Awkward and Isaac…

By Will Reid on September 16th, 2008

outfitpick2.jpgWith a new of series of Heroes about to begin, the unfortunate death of Yves Saint Laurent and the number of Clark Kent-y characters about in the most recent blockbusters, my style radar is tuned to the male who’s gauche, awkward and geeky in the best way possible. Think of 1970s art students carrying open sketchbooks around Paris, Isaac Mendez of Heroes lounging around his studio in over-sized chinos and Marc Jacobs around his grunge era (which means big glasses, baggy jumpers and lots of corduroy.) I took a risk with mixing the denim shirt with dark jeans but the two items together are a wearable look that anyone can pull off.

Check out the product details after the jump and see how geeky you can get this winter- Argyle jumper anyone?

Outfit pick: Sartorialist-style summer shorts

By admin on July 17th, 2008

sartorialist short suit sports jacket.jpg
The Sartorialist isn’t convinced by shorts suits, but his images of sports jackets worn with shorts does indeed work well for the summer months. If you’re not sold on the idea of a shorts suit but want to look smart this summer see after the jump for my outfit pick which team madras with a pale chambray check and sturdy leather plimsolls. Clubmaster-style sunnies add a dose of bookish retro and the jacket finishes of the smart look.

Stop Press: The Sartorialist comes to London!

By admin on May 21st, 2008

sartorialist london visit summer men's.jpgI am mentally planning each and every one of my outfits for next week because Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is coming to London for the first time. He apparently thinks it is already summer in London, better check Accuweather Scott!

He announced the news on his blog yesterday, saying: “I can’t wait to shoot some of the famous London Sun Bunnies! or at least run into some of the Top Gear guys.”
Thank God he was joking, can you imagine an image of Jeremy Clarkson on The Sartorialist? It would be enough to commit fashion hari-kiri.

How to: Cardigans

By ShinyMedia on April 20th, 2007

Topmancardie_2
The rise of the cardigan has surely sounded the death knell for the blazer and jeans look. A few years ago a blazer looked edgy but it’s now only worn by sloaney types, especially with distressed and ripped bootcut jeans, which surely are a confection of the devil. The cardigan offers a much leaner, modern silhouette; it’s a natural partner for skinny or slim jeans and can be dressed up with smart trousers and a slim tie. Simon Amstell does this look perfectly, teaming a dark cardie with a
floral shirt, or choosing various tones of khaki and olive green for an
eye-pleasing cardigan, tie and shirt combo. I’ve come up with two cardigan outfits so if you are one of the few people who haven’t purchased a cardigan there won’t be any excuse not to. See after the jump for images and product links.

Spring shorts outfit

By Isabelle on April 13th, 2007

Topmanshort
I mentioned yesterday that knee high shorts aren’t easy to carry off, but it’s a bit of a dilemma because purely from a fashion (rather than comfort) perspective 3/4 length trousers are looking a bit dated. I’ve picked out an outfit based around a pair of navy tailored shorts from Topman trying to keep it looking quite casual; keeping all the other items in an outfit low key and in a neutral colour palette is a good way of trying out new trends. See after the jump for full outfit image and product links.
