Growl & The Gatsby

London just enjoyed a weekend dedicated to the might of menswear, with established names and new talent showing the city how eclectic should be done. My full review will be posted on Spindle Magazine soon, but below are a few of my first day faves. Hackett orchestrated an air of The Great Gatsby at the Royal Opera House, where creamy pastel suits were given a youthful paisley impression and revamp. The look proved that polished can also be fun and fresh. You can check out a behind the scenes video HERE, and I'll also be giving away an exclusive Hackett notebook to a lucky reader. Just follow ME and HACKETT on twitter, leave a comment on this post, and I'll pick a winner at the end of the month! Back to the runway in hand, Topman went for a 'Saved By The Bell' medley, where basketball swagger met tailored shorts and neon art attack jackets. Oliver Spencer consistently inspires me, with a collection that showcased stubble and gritty suits. The look took a bearded rebel and placed him in a business frame, and I couldn't get enough of it. Finally, A Child Of The Jago had one of the loudest looks of the day, where a wild axeman met an eclectic cowboy. The larger than life hats were a statement in themselves! As for my own look, I've made my own medley of a leafy moss knit from a lord of the rings landscape, with suited trousers and a gothic leopard print shirt. Unconventional should always be the norm!

  3. The Hackett show combined Gatsby and Paisley which are my two favourite things; the white double breasted blazer and paisley trouser look is my favourite from the whole of the Collections. Great article! (just realised I follow you - bizarre coincidence) @boynamedAlex

  6. Found my way to your site through the Hackett Facebook page. I enjoy your unique taste, and your delight in the unconventional. While I have much more conservative taste, I appreciate all those who stay true to themselves, which you apparently do! Keep up the good work!!
