Last year top clothing brands FatFace and Folk collaborated on their first collection. The result of this ski based lifestyle and minimal British streetwear brand joining forces was full of winter wardrobe essentials, perfectly incorporating function and style. Happily I can say they have decided to link up again, producing the FatFace x Folk SS19 collection, a range full of summer staples and essentials designed in Britain. Recently here at The Gentleman Select I had a closer look at some of the key pieces you can expect to see and moreover want in your wardrobe come sunny season.
I’m certain most of you own or have owned a denim shirt in your life time. A fantastic, versatile item to have in the wardrobe, it goes with anything from chinos to denim jeans. Yes indeed the old “double denim” is something I’am an advocate of as long as they are not matching in the same colour. When it comes to popping on the shirt itself however, I would guess a good percentage of you have never worn one with a suit. With this in mind, last month I paid a visit to renowned tailor Andrew Brookes in Edinburgh to check out some shirt options and where I also found a denim shirt perfectly suited for any occasion.
Established on London’s famous Jermyn Street in 1898, T.M.Lewin has been helping men dress to impress for over 100 years. Their fantastic e-commerce set-up and some 100 U.K stores, including new sites opening around the world in Europe, Singapore and Australia, offers up a wide and rich variety of high quality shirts, impeccably tailored suits and jackets, with dapper accessories to match. Here at The Gentleman Select I was lucky enough to link-up with this tailoring titan to explore some of their key, new season pieces. Items that are perfect for everyday use, perhaps a special occasion or if you are dressing to impress. T.M.Lewin certainly has it all.
As many men out there will know it can be a tricky, even slightly nervy task updating your wardrobe and grooming regime for the Autumn season. What products to try, will they work for my skin or do I suit this colour? It can all be very bamboozling indeed. Thankfully, Silverburn is here help as it hosts its first ever menswear style event for those who are looking to update their wardrobe and skincare routine this season.
As I have talked about many times before on The Gentleman Select, tailoring is something I have an obsession with to put it mildly. A form of clothing that dominates my wardrobe, I ‘am always looking for new and exciting cuts and styles to add to an ever-growing collection. With this in mind, you can imagine the complete joy that consumed me when the opportunity came along to meet up with re-knowned Scottish tailor Andrew Brookes, to discuss all things fashion and style, whilst putting together a stunning three piece suit which would knock it out the park at any occasion. During my visit we also explored deeply into how I could wear this suit smart and formal, before splitting it up for a more casual, laid-back look, really re-inforcing both the versatility and importance of having a well cut suit in your wardrobe arsenal, along with the style choices men are making in the modern age.
Here at The Gentleman Select, its always exciting to cover new season items, in this case Spring, which are well worth knowing about when it comes to improving both your wardrobe and keeping stylish. With the arrival of Spring indeed comes the better weather though lets not forget, it also brings with it the quick showers that have soaked us through many times. With that in mind, I’ve picked out a cracking item, the Hammond & Co Mac from Debenhams which is sure to keep you looking both stylish and dry when you are out and about.
There are many menswear brands out there just now doing a lot of good things but not too many that carry behind them such knowledge, drive and passion for their craft as Centre Front Menswear. A brand founded in London by a team with decades of design and buying experience in the fashion world, their focus is to bring you clothing which is a mixture of the latest trends and contemporary styles, inspired by architecture and creative movements all of which look fantastic when you wear them.
Some items of clothing are timeless. A cornerstone of our wardrobe, providing us with carte blanche for which you can build upon and deliver a killer new look. One item which I’m referring to in particular is that of the denim jeans, and furthermore there is one such brand that has nailed what “denim” is better than most, evident in fact they sold one pair of denim jeans every eighteen seconds globally in the past year. This brand is our British favourite Topman.
