From Marc Jacobs to Topman, McQ to Uniqlo, short shorts have undoubtedly secured their place as the menswear item of the season – and possibly the year. If I said they needed an adopter than we at Brandish are basically an orphanage. We have given you examples of short shorts in a spectrum of colours, fabrics and prints and Jason even took it to a political platform!

Cheap Monday look set to keep on branching
out with their KOSTYM
range. Featuring suits, trench coats and the ubiquitous check shirt, the
detailing on the items is what they’re hoping will set them apart. The asymmetrical

But before you all stop reading this, firm in the belief that I have finally cracked, I promise that I am not subliminally feeding you pages from ‘An Idiot’s Guide to … being an idiot’ but instead providing you with an outfit that will allow you to get freaky without the raised eyebrows- more crinkled blazer than straight-jacket.
