Stars of The Wire go all high fashion

By admin on May 28th, 2008

thewire.jpgIf I were to play a word association game with things from The Wire, the last thing I’d associate with it is high fashion. So I was more than a little surprised to see Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson – who play Marlo and Snoop – in this weekend’s Guardian sporting Prada and Paul Boateng. On the plus side, it did give me an excuse to pimp the show -which is the greatest TV show ever – to anyone within earshot. A bit like how I’m pimping it now.

The shoot itself was ok but it could have been better. For one, there was an over reliance on blazers and t-shirts, which just look terrible together. Felicia Pearson also just looks uncomfortable out of sporty clothing, so it makes for an awkward looking shoot. The best looks were the Y-3 outfits because the subjects looked comfortable in their outfits and the purple Ozwald Boateng suit, which I would consider wearing if I had a spare £895 lying around.

Acne Jeans – Why settle for less?

By admin on April 17th, 2008

acnejeans.jpgWhy do people put such a low price limit when jeans shopping? Don’t give me the price nonsense either. If you spend £50 on jeans which develop holes after 3 months, then you’ll need to replace them. Do this 3 or 4 times a year and you’ll spend £150-200 on the same awful pair of jeans. So why not save that money up and get these Acne Jeans?

Sure, at £177 you could get cheaper jeans but why put yourself through that ordeal? It would be the equivalent of watching Lead Balloon instead of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The Bill instead of The Wire. Dane Cook instead of Bill Hicks. Taxi Driver instead of….you get my drift. It would be a bad choice.

D.I.E Spring/Summer 08 range

By admin on February 11th, 2008

Die_superman_tee We’re ardent D.I.E fans here at Brandish. So we could barely contain our excitement when the D.I.E S/S range went up at Oki-Ni. While they do make other items, everyone knows that eye catching t-shirts are their speciality.

This season features a playful take on the Velvet Underground and Nico album cover and my personal favourite, this Superman shirt. I love the fact that it’s yellow, which in turn allows me to pretend that spring is here already. In fact, waiting for spring has become my favourite pastime next to searching for the perfect t-shirt and watching the Wire.

Trendwatch: Now we’re Lost

By admin on December 19th, 2007

Continuing our trend watch, we
present to you the ‘Lost’
. There’s no need for us to recount the whole story of how these tees
came around, but now even underwhelming TV shows are getting the t-shirt

One does wonder though, when was this shirt
thought up? Was it during the first season, when Lost looked certain to become
the biggest show of the decade or during the second season when people got
bored of it? They could have made a similar tee from Heroes characters would
probably be a lot more successful right now. Although I personally would like
one featuring characters from The Wire, the best show on TV bar none. If
someone made that I’d give them all the money I have on me right now (£2.34
& some Halls Soothers).
