A.P.C stripe jumper from Start

By admin on September 24th, 2008

apc stripe jumper knit start nautical.jpgStripes are a bit overexposed in menswear generally but A.P.C’s knit jumper still feels fresh.
The classic nautical style looks less gimmicky in grey and oatmeal and the stripes are just the right width.

The four-button sweater is available from Start for £239, they recommend wearing it with a suit jacket (two buttons done up) which is a handy bit of advice. I’d team it with faded grey jeans, a pale cloth scarf and a pair of white canvas pumps but I’m boring like that!

WISHLIST: CDG Embossed Wallet at Start London

By Will Reid on September 3rd, 2008

cdg.jpgMy style pick for this week is this gorgeous Comme Des Garcons wallet from Start London. Mr Start, a past columnist for Brandish, has a great look and I can imagine this item slotting into his vintage chic and classic cool wardrobe quite nicely. The embossed leather is a great cerulean blue, made famous by the brilliant film ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ The wallet has a zip around two sides and an “internal pocket to hold either coins, cards or bills.”

Rykiel Homme kiss jumper

By admin on August 19th, 2008

rykielhomme.jpgWith the V-neck takeover that happened last winter, this year looks to see a comeback for the good ol’ crew neck and one of the best is this Rykiel Homme jumper.

It’s rare to see an oversized graphic jumper look understated, but RH have managed just that. Due to the relatively sombre colours of the design, it manages not to look too OTT whilst remaining eye catching. For a sweater £199.50 is a little steep, but it does make for a great statement piece so it would be worth the investment.

Expose your inner dandy with this Unity shirt

By admin on July 24th, 2008

unityshirt.jpgDandies are back in fashion (according to Mens Flair/L’Uomo Vogue). If you’re getting weary of your wardrobe why not add some eye catching accessories? If you’re looking for ways to jazz up your shirts, you could start with a neck tie. Or better yet, just get a shirt with a matching neck tie, like this Unity striped shirt.

Call me crazy, but I think this would look great in the workplace. Obviously not in the power meeting with the CEO, but any other day is fine. Sure, you might get heckled slightly for using some blue sky thinking to step outside the box but it’ll be worth it.



Coats & Jackets

APC Herringbone Double breasted jacket

By admin on May 13th, 2008

apcjacket.jpgHold your horses, I’m well aware that there’s no need to buy a jacket in the midst of summer. But think about it, with the economy crumbling and the 10p tax rate eating up more of your pay, it’s time to start investing in quality pieces like this APC herringbone jacket.

Whilst the piece does fit with the nautical look, it will undoubtedly be much too hot to wear a jacket. On the bright side, the double breasted trend is set to continue on into next winter at least, so you’ll be buying an item that is in fashion whilst remaining stylish. The price is a very reasonable £159 and it’s available from Start.

Miu Miu Brown brogues

By admin on March 7th, 2008

Miu_miu
Seeing as this is the last Miu Miu men’s
collection ever, why not get a timeless piece that you can still wear in a few
years time? While round toes are in fashion now, they’re also the most
versatile and durable style of shoe, tending to outlast the faddier pointy toe.

If you want a piece of history and fashion
at the same time, then these round
toe brogues
do the job perfectly. It seems like everyone wanted a piece of
history, as the only sizes left are 7, 7.5 & 9. If you’re any of these
sizes, then you can get these for £275 from Start.

Philip Start’s Fashion Week diary

By Isabelle on January 23rd, 2008

Philipstart
Philip Start has been in Paris at the menswear shows looking for new pieces for his London Boutique Start. He caught up with us and gave us the lowdown from the last few days:

Tranoï a small French retailer, had the best brands that didn’t have showrooms and some of the bigger names included Juun-J, U-ni-ty and Tillmann Lauterbach.

Philip went to the Dior show which he said was ‘a bit retro, all black skinny jeans and nothing new’. Ever since Hedi Slimane’s departure Dior has struggled to find a new style and Kris Van Aasche’s MC Hammer trousers weren’t impressing him: ‘My suspicion is that because he
didn’t invent skinny jeans he’s trying to make a mark but I’m not interested in
it’. Philip’s celebrity companion Brian Molko apparently wasn’t too impressed by the baggy trousers either.
