Necking it: beat the ‘burn with a summer scarf

By admin on June 3rd, 2009

Parisians supposedly have a saying; you can never have too many scarves on your person. As summer heats up this side of the Channel, and sunburnt necks become commonplace, we’ve been seeing looser neckerchiefs and bandannas slung around the coolest collars. Taking inspiration from Lanvin’s SS09 show, via everyone’s favourite luxo-blogger 00o00 to Liberty’s new dedicated scarf room (and Scarf of the Week feature), it seems the summer scarf is destined to become a bit of a practical trend.
A simple bandanna (Topman have some great ones) knotted around the neck to make a triangle at the front is the simplest way to do this, but any light material can work. This is the place to experiment with unusual patterns, colours and fabrics, so get raiding your nearest charity shop/your Mum’s sewing box/old t-shirts/Berwick Street…

Yay or Nay: The Return of THAT Print?

By Will Reid on January 19th, 2009

burberry.jpgThe Burberry Prorsum A/W 2009 show has been going down a storm on the Internet with buyers and fashion critics air-kissing in delighted agreement as they plan their wardrobes for seasons to come (guilty as charged.) Apart from the amazing padded jackets and sharp tailoring, one of the things that has most caught my attention is the subtle return of the infamous check print. The beige tartan-esque print has, in recent years, become a taboo of the fashion industry but designer Christopher Bailey appears to have decided that the time has come for a major return.

What do you think- are you ready to show-off the check print? Vote in our poll after the jump!

Return of…the WISHLIST! Unisex Circle Scarf from American Apparel

By Will Reid on January 13th, 2009

RSA0503_01.jpgPost-Christmas and the inevitable unwrapping, posing and dressing that occurs as a direct result, I find myself on the hunt for new purchases to slyly absorb into my wardrobe (NYE Resolution: hide fewer credit card bills!)

I have decided to bring back an old Brandish feature- the ‘Wishlist.’ I begin with the ‘Unisex Circle Scarf’ from American Apparel. The scarf can be worn a mesmerising 12 ways for girls (as shown in a diagram on the label’s website,) but I think us boys could get just as much fun out of this great winter accessory.

The scarf costs £21 on-line and comes in 11 colours. A more affordable Wishlist so far!

When your own boss writes that he wants to burn his stripy scarf it’s time to write a definite guide to scarves.
We featured a stripy scarf pick way back in November but we need to go back to basics. The obvious purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm, but sartorially speaking a scarf has a multitude of uses, jump through for our guide to the scarf, and burn that stripy scarf!

Kerchiefs: another alternative to bow ties

By Colin Chapman on December 19th, 2008

kerchief.jpg

The other day I posted an alternative to the bow tie .. and here’s another. The kerchief worn as necktie adds a jaunty, hipster edge to your shirt collar. There are several ways to knot, consider your personal style and what you’re wearing it with. Ideally find something vintage. Silk always looks dashing or use that spotted pocket square you’ve never had a use for.

A recent Facehunter post shows this accessory idea off to stunning effect though it’s something that The Sartorialist has also featured before, and can even be spotted in current Uniqlo window styling.

So take a break from Christmas shopping and dig out that gem. But be advised to go for subtlety in colour and proportion: unless you really ARE channeling Quentin Crisp.

Celeb Style: Ashton Kutcher at ‘Flawless’ Premiere

By Will Reid on December 2nd, 2008

ashton kutcher demi moore flawless film premiere.jpgAshton Kutcher is one of my low-key style icons. Firstly, he started out as a model and it was he who introduced the now infamous ‘trucker cap’ to the fashion scene. Rumours were rife of a fashion collaboration when he was spotted note-taking in the front rows of fashion weeks and now he has provided us with even more style inspiration.

At the premiere of Demi Moore’s new film, ‘Flawless,’ Ashton was a picture of muted luxury with his regal red tie, opulent tweed coat and not-too-flashy Louis Vuitton scarf. This is a look that anyone can copy this Winter!

More winter style solutions, this time with our definitive pick of winter scarves. A scarf is a great chance to add a splash of colour, pattern or texture to your outfit so be brave and pick something bold!
From left: University scarves are a great find on eBay, Paul Smith does a luxe silk-lined version for £110. Chunky scarves with the right amount of texture are hard to come by on the high street but Topman have a good selection, this teal offering is £12.

Farfetch, a virtual smorgasbord of menswear

By admin on October 14th, 2008

farfetch walter van bierendonck helmut lang date designer.jpg
I wrote about Farfetch last week on Catwalk Queen but proportionally speaking it’s far bigger news for menswear. There aren’t many online stores that can boast designers like Jil Sander, YSL as well as newer names like Surface 2 Air all under one roof and when you consider the dearth of options on the high street a site like this is even more vital.
Here are a few of my picks from the site, a really satisfying pair of trainers, a witty patterned scarf and the Helmut Lang shirt is the most perfect shade of grey I’ve ever seen. Full product details after the cut.

Why So Serious DeNiro?- Oops, Wrong Film…

By Will Reid on September 11th, 2008

deniropacino2.jpgMy 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 looks pretty good!

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

Celeb Style: Jay-Z does Geek Chic 2 Months After Matt Damon

By Will Reid on July 3rd, 2008

jayz.jpgLast Friday, Jay-Z turned up on Jonathan Ross and as the guestlist was revealed, I was delighted to see good ol’ Jay-Z rocking the Geek-Chic look. But sadly for Mr. Z (can we call him that?) Matt Damon had tried the look over two months before. Usually an all-round innovator and owner of his own label, I have come to expect more of this man with those infamous 99 problems.

Okay, okay- maybe Im being slightly sarcastic but let’s be honest; that beige jacket is rather horrific. However, I’m liking the ‘Globe-trotter’ scarf tied into the loop of his jeans and with quotes like “home was like the cliché of rough…when I was nine I saw someone shot for the first time” and “my favourite is heartfelt music… I listen to Coldplay, 50 Cent, Kanye West,” what’s not to love?

Trends: Watch & Wear-Public School Drool

By Will Reid on April 6th, 2008

bout2.jpg

Out of show season, it gets just that bit harder to predict the trends. However, in typical fashion, the industry moves on; someone gets a haircut, a designer does a high-street collaboration, Amy Winehouse is paid $1 million to do a Louis Vuitton gig. In the case of April, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lacoste.

René Lacoste turned up at tennis tournaments dressed almost as good as he played and it was from a bet on a crocodile skin suitcase that the famous Lacoste logo came about. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.

Uniqlo Cashmere Scarves for £20!

By admin on December 20th, 2007

Uniqlocashmerescarf
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?

If you didn’t buy it, but still want
cashmere round your neck then you’re in luck. Uniqlo have just released a range
of Cashmere
scarves
costing just £20. In my disbelief, I went to one of the flagship
stores and lo and behold, there it was. £20 cashmere scarves. They feel the
same as the Paul Smith and manage to be £80 cheaper. As a point of comparison,
Y-3 were trying to sell some awful branded wool scarves for £110 and H&M ‘luxury’
scarves cost £20.

Before you start, I know this is another
women’s item but who cares about gender with scarves anyway?
