Going to Henley Regatta? Wear Comme des Garcons plaid jacket

By admin on July 4th, 2008

This weekend sees Henley Regatta in full swing and if you’re heading down to Boris Johnson’s old constituency you’d better look the part. Comme des Garcons’ plaid jacket will look great teamed with a straw boater and some deck shoes and is perfect for lounging on the banks of the Thames.

The acid-bright check contrasts nicely with the chunky, boxy tailoring and slightly cropped sleeves while the pale cream buttons add a vintage feel. You can get your hands on this coat at Browns for the sale price of £255, tally ho!

So the news is in on the provenance of Chris Taylor’s shirt and unfortunately it’ll be hard to get the exact same one. With the nonchalance of someone who doesn’t have a 9 to 5 job (jealous, moi?) the Grizzly Bear clarinettist simply replied:
It’s just a thrift store shirt I found somewhere on tour
Which means that if you want to emulate the look you’ll have to scour the vintage shops or simply take your pick from the three shirts I’ve dug out for you. Product details after the jump.

Bricolage are a band I saw last week as part of the excellent Twee as Fuck club night, and as much as I loved their set (click on the link to hear the brilliant ‘footsteps’) what immediately struck me was the awesomeness of their outfits. Their bassist sported an impressive madras shirt and I immediately thought of all you lovely Brandish readers. Not only that but the lead vocalist had a fine print shirt, and the guitarist had a very special Fair Isle cardie and a quiff so substantial you could have quite happily built a block of council flats on top of it. See after the jump for more images of the band.

Top Five Chris Taylor-style madras shirts

By ShinyMedia on March 13th, 2008


When Paul, one of our commenters asked where he could find a madras shirt similar to the one Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear is sporting in my short shorts post I went on a madras mission. I’m waiting to hear from Gizzly Bear’s publicist about the actual shirt (which will probably end up coming from a thrift store) but in the meantime here are my top five shirts to give you your madras fix. Land’s End seem to know their madras and their shirt is pretty cool but the jonquil colourway (behind the shirt) beats the moss green hands down. See after the jump for the rest of the picks.
