In case you’ve been too lazy to scroll down the page, this is the second post of Matches sale items, this time focusing on Paul Smith.
Manchester United Football Club have enlisted Paul Smith, to design the team formal wear and accessories for the next three years. The deal follows a similar deal by Champions League opponent, Chelsea and Italian designer, Giorgio Armani.
Hopefully this summer will sound the sartorial death knell for knee-length boardshorts. They’re fine on teenagers and actual surfers, but on a twenty or thirty-something male the look is a bit tragic.
Last week, as news was released of the Macca divorce settlement, my brother Doug (as well as the lovely Kim over at Catwalk Queen) brought my attention to the criminal costume of Miss Mills.
“Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” If good old Coco Chanel was right (which really isn’t a question) then there is really no reason to feel as guilty as I do about desiring these pricey PJs from Paul Smith. Prepare yourself now for some major alliteration.
If you’ve seen it go wrong, you might be reticent
about the splash of colour trend. I mean, a splash is fine, but too much
splashing can create a jarring effect. Seeing as accessories are the best way
to add colour to an outfit, why not start with this sky

These bracelets from Paul Smith have been around for a while but they’re proper nice.
New year, new pants – that’s how the old
saying doesn’t go. Everyone harks on about essentials, but I don’t think enough
time is spent harking on about our most needed essential: The humble boxer (If
you’re wearing pants or Y-fronts, then leave now. Close the door behind you).
Seeing as we’re in the second month of 2008, it’s more than likely that you’ll
have some underwear that should have been thrown out a long time ago.
Don’t underestimate the power of socks.
Okay, it’s not like they can put you in a chokehold or anything – but they can
ruin a perfectly put together outfit. Match your Nike running socks with a pair
of shoes and you’ll look like you get style tips from Larry David, regardless
of well dressed you are. Put it this way; if you have a brown pair of shoes,
you need these Paul
Oh Sir Paul, you don’t disappoint do you? With this laptop case, you’re really spoiling us.
A couple of weeks ago, I suggested a Paul Smith cashmere
scarf as a Christmas gift. If you bought it, return it now! Right now! Why are
you still reading this and not returning that scarf?
High boots can be scary for the newcomer. Who’s to say you won’t just look like a soldier who’s lost the rest of his uniform? Most designers have been thinking up a happy medium between boots and brogues – I think they should be called ‘Broots’ – and Paul Smith is one such designer.
I think I’ve fallen in love. These Paul Smith summer pumps combine brogue detailing with summery denim and colourful eyelets; although he had me at the brogue detailing.
