A Guide To Men’s Shoe Colour Combinations

If it’s true that a man’s outfit is assessed from his shoes up, then it’s their shade that first colours someone’s judgement. Footwear, like everything else in menswear, has grown less rigid recently – these days you can wear Oxfords with jeans and trainers with a suit. But the key to pulling either off is […]

AVI-8 Releases Affordable Limited-Edition Watches To Celebrate The RAF

The RAF is the world’s oldest independent air force; when it was formed on 1 April 1918 it was also the most powerful.

31 Budget Spring Menswear Pieces Worth Buying

There’s a famous saying about the weather in spring: if you don’t like it, just wait five minutes. Of course, while it’s nice to know that a mere 300 seconds after being drenched by a monsoon you’ll be dried off by Sub-Saharan sunshine, it’s a less than ideal situation to dress for. Which makes getting […]

How To Mix & Match Patterns Like A Pro

Of all the tenets of dressing well, ‘do not clash patterns’ seems like one that should always hold water.

Even the most rebellious of subcultures throughout history were loath to mix […]

7 Men’s Fashion Trends That Shouldn’t Work (But Do)

The fashion industry can seem like the upshot of a bet between designers to see who can be most contrary. (How else are they going to get you to buy something new every six months?) Then there’s the 20-year trend-rehashing rule, which dictates that the statute of limitations on even the most grievous style crimes is at […]

The Complete Guide To Monk Strap Shoes

In the heritage-obsessed world of menswear, to refer to an item of dress as ‘classic’ before at least 20 years has passed since the first bloke plucked up enough courage to wear it out in public is to risk being stripped of your cufflinks and escorted off Savile Row. However, when the monk strap shoe […]

Common Mistakes Nearly All Men Make With Their Bags

Like a cigarette burn on your knit or a toothpaste stain on your black jeans, a misjudged move with your bag is enough to bring your sartorial efforts crumbling down.

The Barbershop Guide To Getting The Faux Hawk Hairstyle

We’re going to assume that you’ve heard of the mohawk, that pointy, green thing that lived on the heads of punk rockers and which has also been co-opted in other forms by men as diverse as Travis Bickle, Mr T and David Beckham. It’s a strong look. You may not, however, be as confident identifying […]

The Key Denim Trends We’re Backing For 2018

There will always be style purists who say that dark, unsullied denim (preferably selvedge) is the only kind worth investing in for versatility and longevity. And while we agree, to an extent, denim has moved on a lot since tailor Jacob W. Davis and dry-goods salesman Levi Strauss patented the rivet in 1873. The 20th […]

THE GROOM’S GUIDE TO WEDDING DAY ACCESSORIES

MENSWEAR ACCESSORIES CAN TRANSFORM ANY ENSEMBLE FOR THE BETTER The day is all about the bride, that’s a given, but that leaves no excuse for the groom to make his way to the altar in sub-standard attire.

How To Wear Streetwear Like A Grown-Up

Streetwear is a strange and complex beast. On the one hand, it’s disposable, obnoxious and often unflattering. On the other, Supreme – the skate brand that James Jebbia launched in the nineties – is now a billion-dollar behemoth. It collaborates with Louis Vuitton and, if you believe the rumour mill, even has a link-up with […]

21 Trend-Proof Style Staples To Buy In Time For Spring

The Rules For Matching Your Trainers To Your Outfit

FALL 2018 MENSWEAR Death To Tennis

Expect the unexpected. That was the pre-show atmosphere at Death to Tennis, already a curious name. Backstage, designers Vincent Oshin and William Watson spoke cryptically of a “style war” they were about to launch. So when, at show’s start, one front-rower lit up and filled the room with a certain unmistakable scent, the rest of […]

FALL 2018 MENSWEAR Deveaux

6 Ways To Look Good In Corduroy

You probably don’t need us to point out that we live in strange and confusing times. At the exact same moment that the remains of the knuckle-dragging, sex-pest attitudes of the seventies are (thankfully) public enemy number one, in the menswear world if it’s got a whiff of the brown and orange decade, it’s hot property. For […]

British fashion: the reality style you need for your wardrobe

It’s a particularly British trait to think of pragmatism and practicality over all. That stiff upper lip might be on the wane (a good thing, if you ask me) but it’s stout British grit that’s seen the country through its darkest hours, and, in a very different manner, informs the decision of a kid from Clapton […]
