Or these chocolatey, sophisticated things...
Bizarrely, the most covetable of the styles is designed exclusively for use in sport. Pfft I say. These would be perfect with a combination of Acne grey slim jeans, white tank or tee and that blazer I bought recently. After all, if neoprene's good enough for McQueen it will definitely do me.
Can't believe Kate chose such a dreary pair from such an exciting collection...

I'd seen the Junk de Luxe a handful of times on various shopping excursions, however I'd never pay much attention due to my horribly ignorant, entirely bizarre, subconscious association of the brand name with Juicy Couture. The two, as I'm sure you all know, could not be further apart in aesthetic.
The site offers more slickly styled Scandinavian pieces - each and every one undeniably covetable. Oh, and it was just 59.99 euro.

In the AW 0809 collection his inspiration is evident. Thick, sizeable knits, robust leathers, heavy military coats and don't-fuck-with-me denim are fitting for the modern counterparts of the soldiers of the Schleswig Wars.

Must really recommend you check out Guga's 'Evolution'. That is, of course, if you haven't the time to enjoy each and every one of these thought-provoking and often heart-warming masterpieces.

Anywhat, I'm hoping the deconstructed, blackest-of-black jackets and host of Victorian ruffles seen above will also appear in the mens offering. Looks incorporating the SS09 CdG aesthetic [below] would be particularly delectable. Oh, and no skirts please, Rei.

Gordon Richardson on the project:
"The brief to design a future classic black trouser has to be one of the most challenging for a men's wear designer," said Gordon Richardson, Topman design and product development director. "Each of the hand-picked designers contributing to the Black Trousers project have managed to design a pair that not only reflects their own design aesthetic but challenges the existing Topman one. All immediately desirable, wearable and ultimately collectable."
Although it's all - ultimately - rather disappointing I do quite like the Ervell and Back pairs...love for the former could just be related to the superb styling but I'm undecided.
Also, I know they're striving for that edgy, scene aesthetic which so epitomises Topman's target market but this unnecessary contortion is beginning to be tiresome.
