Gerald Lynch News, Sports, Sportswear Leave a Comment

With all the hype surrounding this year’s London 2012 Olympics, it’s easy to forget that there’s also a major football tournament going on too this summer in the shape of the Euro 2012 cup. Adidas, key sponsors and kit designers for Great Britain’s Team GB, would have more excuses than most if they were to forget the fact. But quite to the …

Laura Brand Spotlight, Clothing, Coats & Jackets Leave a Comment

Hart Schaffner Marx have launched their Fall/Winter 2011 collection, with a great short video featuring Joseph Abboud as he takes the viewer behind the scenes of collection photo shoot.

Attending one of East London’s ridiculously trendy gyms as I do, the quota of fashion-focused gym attire is higher than average but there’s still a lot of guys who turn up in washed-out ‘I usually sleep in this but who cares?’ T-shirts and (worse) saggy cargo shorts.

Thom Browne Runs…In Thom Browne Cardies!

Will Reid Designer Spotlight, Heroes and Celebrities, Lifestyle & Gadgets, Sportswear Leave a Comment

This is probably a good time to admit that before Brandish, I wasn’t too involved in the world of menswear (only now do I realise how much I was missing out on!) However, Thom Browne is one of those designers who manages to capture two opposite industries with just the cut of a hem and the snip of a gorgeous thread. His signature look of shrunken suit, sports socks and loafers has cemented him as a style icon for both sexes and his shows have even inspired my own trend reports. Now, Style.com has talked to him about his exercise regime (although running daily on tracks including Central Park, the Eiffel Tower and the Imperial Gardens of Japan are a luxury rather inaccessible to us hoi polloi.) But I really must warn you that the vid may leave you feeling slightly inferior- after all how many of us can claim to have completed 15 marathons worldwide and still be running in Thom Browne knitwear?
