A while ago when Silas pulled out of the UK I was pretty gutted because at the time they were my favorite brand due to the fact that their T-Shirts fit so damn well, the actual design of the T’s were less important to me but to be fair these were just as great.

For AW08-09, Topman has created a video showcase of their latest collection- Block Heads. Model James Mclean poses in what Topman tells is a trend “inspired by the look of a Dickensian gypsy mixed with influences from the deep south.” We get a glimpse of what we will no doubt be wearing by Christmas and the video really projects what the look is all about- a poetic Grunge with not a slight hint of Luke Worrall.

“Bib front t-shirts are worn under a waistcoat and double breasted cardigans, topped off with a black padded donkey jacket for a military feel. Big accessories for this trend include a selection of trilby hats and scarves worn with tweed trainers or brogues.” Winter’s never looked so good!

Hot on the heels of yesterdays Terry Richardson x Supreme post comes news of the Ellen Stagg x Mishka 2009 calendar and t-shirt, proving once more that these photographer/clothing company collabs just won’t be out done by one another. This collab is slightly more promising however with a calendar AND t-shirt to choose from. “WOW” I hear you cry, and WOW would be right because this calender is full of tits and bums, typical of Stagg’s provocative style of scantily clad photography.
