Brown Cardigan's Top 8 Fashion Tips

Because YOLO.

Brown Cardigan is a mysterious website run by three mysterious men (Jonnythen, Joey and Toblerone), who spend their every waking hour either on the Internet, in Bondi, or on the Internet in Bondi. Forget Wikipedia, Google, and Facebook, www.browncardigan.com is the only address you need on your bookmarks toolbar. Not only do they enjoy collating animal gifs, Seinfeld screenshots, and memes about memes about memes, they also have a sideline in Fashion (which you can invest in here).

To celebrate their surpassing of Vogue and Harpers' combined monthly pageviews, we decided to ask them for some fashion tips.

JONNYTHEN O'NAILS HOT FASHION TIPS WINTER 2012/2013

1) Keppers Pants

Set your balls free, lads. Sperm doesn't grow on trees. You only have a finite number of lil' cardigans in your love pouch. Don't waste them. "Is this it?" That's what she'll say when you're shooting blanks like Julian Casablancas on the last seven Strokes albums. Keep it nice and baggy. (Also great for sneaking Jim Beam bottles and/or Woodstock tallboys into raves in West Ryde). Suggested further reading: forums.greekcity.com.au/topic/11366-kepper-brand-pants.

2) Kangols

Made famous by LL Cool J's younger and less cool brother Samuel J Adams. A timeless look. Best accompanied by a large Boston Ale, a steely gaze and a McCheese Royal (with cheese). Suggested further reading: www.kangolstore.com.

3) Kuta Lines Jumper

An iconic Australian suburban camouflage brand. Great for soaking up/hiding spilled bong water stains and perfect for disguising yourself as a zebra when you sneak up behind a dingo and/or a can of Reschs. More bloody Australian than Don Burke giving Dazzle Braithwaite a "Manaro" while riding the rip at Curl Curl point. Suggested further reading: www.kutalines.com.au.

4) An amalgamation of image types.

5) I clicked random 58 times, who do I invoice?

TOBLERONE JUST WALK$ AROUND AND GET$ IT

6) The Slouch Beanie

"Just put a beanie on it." The lazier the piece of fabric headgear the better, really. Make sure you wear it effortlessly.

7) Cape

Multi-purposeful, fashionable, unforgettable. The Cape is easily the most memorable fashion accessory, you can never forget a person who wears a cape. Black for the fellas, sequins for the chic(k)s. Don't get left behind in the fashion whirlwind. MAFW is just around the corner, cash your street stocks in on the NASDAQ fashion wallstreet.
