I doubt I need to give any background to the ‘Presidential Major Moment’ currently hitting headlines around the world. Looking through pictures of President Obama’s (how unbelievably cool is that?!) inauguration, I couldn’t help but let my mind wonder onto more sartorial matters.

When it comes to jeans I always believe less is more, which is why I have never taken to Diesel jeans or even most Evisu but Levis, for me, Levis seem to get it right almost every time. However for the Levis Engineered Jeans I feel like they really dropped the ball. In theory I love the idea of an homage to the quirk in a twill that meant that early pairs of Levis would twist to the left but the finished product seemed a little cheap. Luckily for Levis few people shared my lack of enthusiasm and the Levis Engineered were an immediate success, 10 years on and the first purpose twisted pair of jeans is being re-released in a super cool collectors box. The special edition comes in the original three cuts: the Standard, the Giant and the Loose Culottes for girls and is slated for release in Spring/Summer 09, however the first 100 pairs will be available from Oki-Ni from early December.

Why So Serious DeNiro?- Oops, Wrong Film…

My bad! I may have the wrong film but I doubt such a slip-up would result in a look that miserable from Robert DeNiro? Might it be that he’s fed up with films? Maybe he (okay, clearly he) couldn’t be bothered to make the effort to dress up but my bet is that it’s standing next to Al Pacino who, as well as being an arguably equal competitor on the greatest actor front, actually look pretty good!

Read on for pictures including 50 Cent and other major stars as well as info about this cult-to-be film.

Diesel not working with Hedi Slimane

When word first spread of Hedi Slimane working on a Diesel red campaign, it originally looked like Diesel had pulled off the fashion scoop of the century. The idea of Diesel, the brand more associated with premiership footballers than fashion icons, working with Hedi Slimane was too weird to be true. Apparently Hedi thought so too, putting out a statement saying that he had “no interest at all in Renzo Rosso’s group, let alone Diesel”. Ouch. He could have just denied it.
