Nylon Guys TV + Liam Gallagher

Back in the days when I was attending high school, there was a distinct divide in the student cohort: you either listened to Brit pop or grunge music and never the twain shall meet. I was Brit pop all the way and still have the Oasis, Blur and Suede albums to prove it. Plus, I’m pretty sure that there’s an Elastica cassette hidden somewhere too.

So it was with a mixture of delight and amusement that I watched this video from Nylon TV with Liam Gallagher, as he discusses his particular take on fashion with his label Pretty Green. I was left wondering: Is Liam Gallagher a style icon and should he be influencing the way modern men dress? I quite like the black military coat that he models in the middle of the video, but I think I will leave the final answers to those questions open to the male readership.

Just remember: “If the shoes are right I think everything else falls into place, you know what I mean?”

I most certainly do, Liam.

    I don’t think no one form the Brit Pop movement is a fashion icon is it? At least not for me. Now the question is, are you Team Liam or Team Noel?

    @José Luis Maybe Jarvis Cocker might fulfill the fashion icon role? He can look quite spiffy. As for whose team I’m on: I think I would have to say Liam because he is so unwittingly hilarious (it must be all the years of cocaine use)…Noel’s a bit serious for my taste.

    Danica, I second you both with Jarvis Cocker, This bloke got a sense of style on him! and with siding Liam.
    You knocked me down with the quote at the end of your post… Unlike his too serious brother, he’s seriously hilarious.

    @Galit Ah, it’s excellent to read that there is someone else who appreciates Jarvis’ style and Liam’s humour. I think that the majority of the stuff that Liam says in the video is absolute gold!
