Flamboyant Clothing: Men – How to rock a vintage sweater

With all the major street brands giving us some great Fairisle knits for Christmas, there is no doubt that winter 2010/11 will have seen many guys embracing the ‘Bridget Jones – Mr Darcy’ look over the Christmas break with wine glass and mince pie in hand. A fine way to celebrate the festive season and cheer us all up after a gloomy year.

But what comes next? How does knitwear translate into the new year for 2011?The answer – the vintage jumper. Not only can you bag yourself a bargain by sourcing ‘a good vintage’  from an online boutique (did I mention FLAMBOYANT VINTAGE IS COMING SOON!!) you can sleep safe in the knowledge that you’ve got an iconic knit, that has no doubt stood the tests of time, or at least the last 20-30 years.

To really wear this look well, proportion and sizing is everything. Skinny guys will naturally look good in a vintage jumper tight-fitting or oversized, however broader guys (or those blessed with a well formed stomach) will definitely want to get an oversized number to avoid looking like Onslo from Keeping up Appearances.

Any colours, knits and patterns can work as long as the jeans and footwear are right- Boots, loafers/plimsolls (no socks) and flip flops are best. ALWAYS wear skinny, carrot or drop crotch carrot jeans, the minute you put a baggy or work fit jean with a vintage jumper then you either add 10 years onto your age or look like your going to start the decorating and pulled something out from the back of a rag cupboard!

If you’re feeling really brave you may even want to venture into your local charity shop and rummage through the racks for a real bargain or better still have a kind word with a grandparent and raid the old wardrobes! Who said family heirlooms have to be dusty, old antiques?

Flamboyant clothing takes an elegant turn

Well you can imagine my excitement when I had an email on Friday evening inviting me to make two sweaters for a dance inspired shoot at the Royal Academy of Dance in London  – based on dance, mixing performance wear with practicewear with an elegant feel. There were a load of samples being included in the shoot (which will be sent to some major magazines) from people like Vivienne Westwood, plus Phillip Treacy is making some hats especially for it too so its an amazing opportunity for Flamboyant Clothing to be worn alongside the greats.

Here are the pics of the sweaters, delicately dyed with lace detailng which I’ve been told have been shot with a pair of Vivenne Westwood shorts so watch this very exciting space!!

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well what a year it’s been. This time last year I was getting to grips with using a sewing machine, a real beginner and dreaming of the possibilities of using my newly learned skills to set up a new clothing brand. Its been such an exciting year: I made my first garment for a catwalk show for Transition Towns Leamington made completely out of recycled scarves; I created the Flamboyant Clothing brand with some great logos designed by my amazing friend Clare; I worked with Henry Holland at HOH and made him a Flamboyant shirt and then went back to help out at London fashion week; Flamboyant Clothing now has a presence on Facebook and Twitter with almost 170 Facebook followers and more and more members of The Flamboyant Army growing by the day; We now have an online store for people to buy the clothes and we have done some great photoshoots with some massive help from some great photographers,as well as some help from some great bloggers, you know who you are!!.

As the year draws to an end I just want to a massive thank you to everyone that has helped me, given me their time, attention advice support and patience, and to everyone who has parted with their hard earned cash to buy a Flamboyant Clothing garment. I could not have got this far without you and this is just the first base covered.

Here’s to a fabulous, flamboyant 2011!!

All my deepest love to you all xxx
