Angel’s Big Vintage Sale, the sale of a lifetime!

By admin on December 4th, 2008

I don’t want to compete for vintage dresses, old suits and heels with anyone but dear Brandish readers come close and let me tell you about one of the most exciting events I’ve heard of in a very long time.

Angel‘s, the London costumier, is hosting the Big Vintage Sale in its Wembley storeroom this Saturday where you can rummage for ex-Angels stock and ex-BBC Resources Costume stock. Clothes hoarder that I am, I’ve spoken to people at the BBC about their costume department and apparently they hardly ever sell of their stock, so this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Watch the video above to get an idea of the scale of the event, and see you at 8.30am on Saturday!

Visit Angel’s Facebook event page for more information on the sale.

Checkbreak: Vintage faded Hawaiian shirt

By admin on July 24th, 2008

As much as we’ve been plugging madras on Brandish maybe it’s time to take a checkbreak for a month or two so you don’t get too bored of the trend.

Printed and patterned shirts look cool in the summer and the vintage Ono Hawaiian shirt from Rusty Zipper will see you into the cooler months teamed with a sharp blazer. the faded print is eyecatching without being too gaudy and will look great teamed with black or grey suit trousers or for a more casual look a pair of bright straight-leg jeans.
