Return of…the WISHLIST! Unisex Circle Scarf from American Apparel

By Will Reid on January 13th, 2009

RSA0503_01.jpgPost-Christmas and the inevitable unwrapping, posing and dressing that occurs as a direct result, I find myself on the hunt for new purchases to slyly absorb into my wardrobe (NYE Resolution: hide fewer credit card bills!)

I have decided to bring back an old Brandish feature- the ‘Wishlist.’ I begin with the ‘Unisex Circle Scarf’ from American Apparel. The scarf can be worn a mesmerising 12 ways for girls (as shown in a diagram on the label’s website,) but I think us boys could get just as much fun out of this great winter accessory.

The scarf costs £21 on-line and comes in 11 colours. A more affordable Wishlist so far!

Brandish Poll: Would You Wear Unisex Clothing?

American Apparel, the brand synonymous with androgyny and men in skintight jeans, has just launched their Unisex Oxford Shirt. I have three sisters and I’m no stranger to borrowing the odd jumper (actually, that would be reclaiming,) and I have in past borrowed Ralph Lauren shirts and vintage blazers for a better fit and a slimmer silhouette. Russell Brand, a man who walks on to a talk-show in a jersey tunic dress and girl’s jeans from Topshop but still manages to be a sex god, would be a great example of unisex dressing at its best but what do you think? Is it worth the sartorial risk when you might see a girl in the same tee as you?

Would you go Unisex- vote in our poll after the jump!

Reader request: All Saints’ mac

By admin on September 10th, 2008

all saints women's mac.jpgI’ve had a few emails since our last reader request which I’m still working through, one of which was a really lovely message from a reader called Ade who says: “I’ve seen a very nice mac in All Saints. At present, they only do a women’s version.”

He wants to know whether you think this mac would look good on men and if All Saints have any plans to do a men’s version. As far as the actual All Saints mac goes I say why not just buy the women’s one?

Topshop’s skinny jeans are renowned for being the best kept secret in many a man’s closet and it’s not like us women haven’t been raiding men’s wardrobes for aeons. The mac has a loose unstructured fit which would suit both men and women. I think it would work well as part of a smart layered outfit with skinny or slim trousers.

I’ve got in touch with the All Saints press office but while I wait for their response what do you think?

Email me your thoughts and questions to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.

WISHLIST: Rykiel Homme T-Shirt

By Will Reid on April 2nd, 2008

rykiel.jpgThis shirt from Rykiel Homme is perfect for the season. Dark with a touch of colour it is fresh and non-fussy as well as being a quirky classic. From the über stylish Start Boutique, it would honestly work with just about any item. 100% cotton with stripes of black, white, grey, blue, lilac and green it also features a ribbed collar and sleeves and could be unisex with its balance of masculine and feminine tones. I would style it with white skinny jeans, the gorgeous blue brogues Richard posted about (please be released!,) a vintage velvet blazer and my silver watch. This is a label I definitely have my eye on. T-Shirt, £99.50, Start Boutique
