Topman turn to tweed for AW12 Premium Suiting Collection

By Gerald Lynch on November 7th, 2012

Looking for a new suit to see you through the winter months? Topman’s newly revealed AW12 Premium Suiting Collection doffs its cap to traditional styles, using coloured herringbones and houndstooth, multi flecked birdseye, tweed and fine Italian fabrics for a classic, nostalgic look without breaking the bank.

Consisting of the Harris Tweed line, the Made in England range and the inaugural Super Premium collection, Topman’s AW12 winter collection leans heavily on slim-fit styles, but use tonal colour schemes to soften the look on men perhaps not usually as comfortable in close-fitting suits.

Gordon Richardson, Creative Director at Topman, said: “Our new elegant Premium Suit collection uses the finest cloths woven in Italy to produce a sophisticated and elegant range with refined bespoke details and a longer silhouette.”

More A/W09 Looks: Steven Alan

By Colin Chapman on May 20th, 2009

Steven_Alan_AW09.jpgFollowing Isabelle’s lead in previewing some A/W looks, here is another collection of relaxed and very wearable clothes, this time from US designer Steven Alan. Whilst not a household name here in the UK (though he has been stocked at places like Liberty) it would be unusual for a well-dressed New Yorker to not have at least one SA piece in their wardrobe.

Loved for his spin on American classics, Mr Alan treads the line between formal and a slightly crumpled. I love the tweeds in this collection, especially the pleated pants and whilst I’m not sure how much plaid I’ll be wearing this Autumn, dressed up with a tie or interesting layers it can be excused. Great styling, too – love those battered workboots!

Celeb Style: Ashton Kutcher at ‘Flawless’ Premiere

By Will Reid on December 2nd, 2008

ashton kutcher demi moore flawless film premiere.jpgAshton Kutcher is one of my low-key style icons. Firstly, he started out as a model and it was he who introduced the now infamous ‘trucker cap’ to the fashion scene. Rumours were rife of a fashion collaboration when he was spotted note-taking in the front rows of fashion weeks and now he has provided us with even more style inspiration.

At the premiere of Demi Moore’s new film, ‘Flawless,’ Ashton was a picture of muted luxury with his regal red tie, opulent tweed coat and not-too-flashy Louis Vuitton scarf. This is a look that anyone can copy this Winter!

Brandish Inspiration: Topman Latest Trend- Block Heads

By Will Reid on November 20th, 2008

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!

Check the video here.

Outfit Pick: Trapper Hat Hot

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

outfitpick4.jpgI have to admit that despite being a lover of high-fashion millinery from the likes of Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy, I just can’t wear hats. They look truly horrific on me.

But the whole Brandish team is currently infatuated with an item that looks set to take off in the coming months (of snow and cold.) That item is the Trapper Hat.

In this week’s Outfit Pick, I’ve added a few eccentric pieces to a Topman Trapper hat and created a look that anyone could pull of by balancing the quirky tweed bag and dancing brogues with a classic beige trench also from Topman.

Valet profile Alexander Olch

By admin on August 14th, 2008

alexander och valet interview ties.jpg
By the time he graduated from high school Alexander Olch was in possession of an impressive collection of 300 ties. He started off life as a film student but when he gave out ties as a wrap present to the cast the requests from friends started coming in and he’s not looked back since.

His website features a selection of ties that physically made me drool, and I don’t even wear ties! The crispness of the superfine wools and the soft weaves of the tweeds are pure eye-candy. To read more about Olch and his love for ties check out the feature at Valet

Alife Everybody Mid Lux Tweed Trainers

By admin on June 18th, 2008

Don’t you hate it when something doesn’t fit into your overall look but you still like it? That’s how I feel about these Alife Everybody Mid Lux Tweed trainers. Part of Alie’s A/W 08 collection, these are the kind of trainer that makes you want to buy a few matching pieces just to accommodate it.

Retailing at $152, they’ll only be available in upscale stores and boutiques. There’s no word on UK availability just yet but there’s still time for that to change.

Style Icons: The Young Knives

By admin on March 12th, 2008

Young_knives_2

Although Indie style icons are plentiful,
they all seem to follow the same consensus of skinny jeans and trenchcoats. That’s
why the Young Knives are one of my favourite style icons. Sticking with the same
look – which could be described as fox hunter meets 60′s office clerk – since
2006, it’s clear that they’re not wearing their clothes as part of a fashion fad.

The clever mixing of herringbone and check by lead
singer Henry Dartnall (centre in the picture above) is like something you’d see
on the Sartorialist. The band also wear skinny ties, which give their outfits just
enough modernity to make the look fresh.  Look after the jump for their ‘Up All Night’
video, which is about beating up people in Shoreditch.
