Watch the Oasis man on NME.COM now

Liam Gallagher has posted a new video online explaining why he’s started his Pretty Green clothing label.

Scroll down now to see Gallagher talking about what clothes mean to him, and why he hates the “skinny” look favoured by the likes of The Horrors and The Strokes.

In the video, which was posted on, the Oasis man says his disappointment in the current men’s clothing market was one of the factors that lead him to start Pretty Green.

“I’m just doing it [launching the clothing range] because there’s a lack of…the stuff I want. You can’t really get it,” he said. “I’m not gonna be putting anything out unless I’d wear it.”

The singer also laid into what he called “the skinny look”, saying he hopes Pretty Green will force a change in the style’s popularity.

He ranted: “I’m not into the skinny look. These skinny things. That’s what I’m here for, to fucking get rid of that shit. You know them shoes that just come at you like a fucking snooker cue?! It’s like, leave it out man! You got a license for them bastards or what?!”

Gallagher can also be seen inspecting a pair of ‘Pretty Green’ shoes in the video, declaring them “fucking tasty”.

The star joked at his Oasis bandmates would only get to wear the clothes “if they get their hands in their pockets”.
