Male A Mode: Knitty Gritty Menswear

This season, knits are making a big impact, I know it is still summer (well the British equivalent to summer at least) but buying products out of season saves money, and time, I know those pesky male shoppers like saving money and time when shopping, so perk those ears fellas!

This piece is from Missoni's A/W 12/13 collection, and yes, i am demonstrating that cardigan do not always have rocking chair, slippers and a "nice brew" associations. Opt for simple colours when wearing textured pieces, you know that supposed rule girls go by, with the legs or cleavage out? well it applies to menswear, texture or colour, put them together and you look like a clothing skank, excuse my french.

Great news for your inner geek too, consol graphic prints are making a comeback Mr Pac-Man himself would be jealous of, indulge in bold fonts, attention to detail, but don't forget your loyality to the good ol' super hero tee-shirt (warning, mixing both may result in social isolation).

Looking for a source of cultured inspiration?
> Somers Town, the undisclosed second instalment of This Is England, filmed in black and white the picture sets out the discover the untold story of youth in London, how cultures are clashing and more importantly, how wearing the wrong footie top in the wrong area of town can be a bigger faux-pa than socks and sandals!
plus Somers Town is currently on BBC i-player, no excuses folks!
> Alabama Shakes, this band is a new sound for this era, unfortunately I cannot see them getting onto radio1 any time soon, rough and ready sounds, and they recorded the entire album in a garage! wicked!
> ALT-J like a good synth? 'nuff said really right? album is out now, and they will be supporting Temper Trap at Somerset house later in the year.
