Lad Musician - Oscar's Unmissable Outlets



'Lad Musician' is the first of many shops to become hunted and selected to become a feature in Oscar's Unmissable Outlets (OUO).

Lad Musician is a quirky, indie stylish clothing store, based in Tokyo, Japan. Some of the garments and accessories are a little pricey however their unique approach to men's fashion and the styling details involved in executing the perfect outfit are well-worth the price.

The link to the store (where you can also see their latest fashion show) and some pictures are below:

Recycling Fashion

Fashion is not just purchased in shops, you can re-use simple materials around your house to make your own fashionable garments.

You can make a dress from the old newspapers around your house, or hunt out your Lego from when you were younger or simply borrow your brothers to re-vamp an old pair of shoes. By recycling objects for fashion you are helping the environment and you are also going to have your own bold and unique outfits. So be creative, become a designer and make a difference to the planet.

Please post anything you have recycled yourself or any new projects!

Fashion Forecasting - Tickets Please!

For my Fashion Forecasting project I had to produce a source-book, showing a fashion forecast for 3 different collections for the brand Topman/Topshop which were: Woman's sleepwear, woman's festive wear and men's casual day-wear. From these 3 collections one main collection had to be chosen and presented.

The collection I choose was men's casual day wear, which I renamed 'Urban Traveler' as the theme for the collection was 'Metro'. When it came to making the source-book and presenting my work on display boards, I wanted to continue with the theme 'Metro' for a strong link between my presentation boards and my source-book.

Some images of the project is below. all work shown is my own.

Thanks for reading, and expect more blogs on the way including my introduction to 'Street Styling'.

Advice when purchasing a suit in 2011

Buying a new suit can be a hassle, but it does not have to be!

Colours 


When it comes to buying a new suit either for work,weddings,casual then different styles of grey is the one to buy. It has proven most popular in runways and has completely put the past popular 'navy' in the shade.

Buttons

Three buttoned suits are completely out and if possible try to avoid. One or two buttons would be best.

Vents

The type of vent to go for in a jacket would be a double vent. Although single vent and no vent is not 'out', it's not considered to be 'in' either, so personal choice really.

When trying on a suit

Trousers:  Make sure the trouser leg sits just at the tip of your heel and not over it.

Jacket:     Make sure the sleeves reach the start of your thumb when your arms are down and relaxed.

TIP 

For an excellent suit with matching top-rate service I would recommend shopping at 'Slaters'. They make buying a suit a breeze, and that should be their catch-phrase. With the best customer service on the high street, top quality suits and free alterations for the life of your suit, you can't go wrong!
