This Reader Request comes from Sarah, for a chilly boyfriend with no central heating. Come winter time, in the words of TLC I ain’t too proud to beg (for thermals). M&S should be your first port of call, they have long johns, thermal socks and nifty cosy shirts which have masses of grandpa chic appeal. Fellow old-school retailer John Lewis is also unbeatable for some winter warmth.
Thermal tops and underwear are all great, but if the cold is really getting to you drown your sorrows with a handy Ace of Spades hip flask, I’m sure TLC would approve.

If you have a fashion dilemma or you just want to chat drop me an email, or write on our Blog Network wall.

So LFW has been and gone and I can concentrate on my Brandish readers once more. Andrea sent me an email a couple of weeks ago asking for clearer sartorial guidance (and praising Will’s outfit picks). Well we’ll never tell you what to wear on Brandish but Andrea has beef with brown: “I know black shouldn’t be worn with brown, but what are the appropriate colours to match it with?”

I vaguely remember Charlie Porter saying teaming brown and black was a fashion faux-pas in his great Guardian Weekend column a few years ago but I disagree. As long as the brown is a rich russety shade it will look great, think of the colours in tortoiseshell and you can’t go wrong.

Reader request: All Saints’ mac

By admin on September 10th, 2008

all saints women's mac.jpgI’ve had a few emails since our last reader request which I’m still working through, one of which was a really lovely message from a reader called Ade who says: “I’ve seen a very nice mac in All Saints. At present, they only do a women’s version.”

He wants to know whether you think this mac would look good on men and if All Saints have any plans to do a men’s version. As far as the actual All Saints mac goes I say why not just buy the women’s one?

Topshop’s skinny jeans are renowned for being the best kept secret in many a man’s closet and it’s not like us women haven’t been raiding men’s wardrobes for aeons. The mac has a loose unstructured fit which would suit both men and women. I think it would work well as part of a smart layered outfit with skinny or slim trousers.

I’ve got in touch with the All Saints press office but while I wait for their response what do you think?

Email me your thoughts and questions to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.
