Style Picks: Tartan Waistcoats

Dead Legacy have been producing unique t-shirts and sweats since 2009. Inspired by music, art and cinema, their designs eschew trends and fashion, an approach which has enabled them to successfully build a following of loyal devotees. This month sees the brand launch a set of three graphic print t-shirts in collaboration with Manchester based artist, illustrator and graphic designer Dave Merrell. The tees feature drawn images of three iconic British talents – John Lennon, Amy Winehouse and Kate Moss. Merrell depicts his subjects in a style reminiscent of Cubist art, with each image being broken down into multifaceted areas of shading, thereby reducing these giants of popular culture to simple geometric forms.

2013’s menswear shows have been dominated by print and designers such as E Tautz, approved James Long, Moncler Gamme Bleu, Vivienne Westwood and Umit Benan chose to pepper their collections with a variety of over-scale checks, diagonal checks and nostalgic tartans.

Moschino led the way with their tartan infused “Modern Highlander” runway show – a fresh take on Scottish heritage. Through their use of sleek silhouettes and sophisticated outerwear Moschino successfully conjured up the idea of the distinguished gentleman, a theme that has undoubtedly been precipitated by fictional characters such as Downton Abbey’s Matthew CrawleyMr Selfridge and of course James Bond. With Baz Luhrman’s elegant Gatsby set to hit screens in May, the fashion world is likely to remain seduced by the refined for some time to come.

The devil is in the details and there’s no better way of achieving effortless sophistication than investing in some eye-catching accent pieces. PAUSE picks these two most gentlemanly waistcoats to get you started.
