London Fashion Week Men 2018. Who wore what? Who said what to who? Who shagged him/her and who the hell cares?
I got some snaps to share with you guys from the St James Catwalk and got us much product information as I could. Enjoy this one.
Ringside at London Fashion Week, Tom Chamberlin, editor of Rake Magazine in a Navy with light blue under check peak lapel Blue Double Breasted suit. Light blue sea cotton shirt with a classic cutaway collar. He’s opted for a yellow diamond motif tie, with a four-in-hand knot.
Richard Biedul wearing a cream New & Lingwood 4×6 double breasted Edmonton Linen cream suit. High peak lapels, blue shirt with large rounded open collars and white binding. Single reverse pleated high rise trousers. There are belt loops but Richard is wearing wine and white polka dot barathea braces underneath.
I couldn’t see the suit on New & Lingwood’s site so I’m assuming it’s due for launch.
My good pal Jim Chapman. I got to speak to him and we shook hands and everything. He’s rocking an awesome Alfred Dunhill Pink suede jacket. Its lamb leather, with over sized chest pockets finished with raw edges and saddle stitch detail on the under collar.
Jim is wearing Burberry trousers and Taylor Morris sunglasses.
You can check out my interview with Jim Chapman on the Menswear Style podcast.
How about this handsome mo-fo. Known as Hubing on Instagram. Wide Peak lapel grey POW single breasted. Hubing has done work for La Perla before, but I’m guessing this might be Alfred Dunhill also.
(Even though on the Alfred Dunhill site the copy righter has mistakenly labelled this as a Notch lapel suit).
He is going for a very classic look with the alligator leather strap watch and gold tie clip. However, having a little fun with the monkey-holding-hoop pocket square.
Above Simon Maloney, Product & Marketing Director at New & Lingwood, said: “As a heritage English brand, we love to participate in this celebration of men’s style, creativity and craftsmanship which takes place in the heart of St James’s.
Exclusivity usually surrounds London Fashion Week Men’s but the Jermyn Street runway show allows the true consumer to be involved. It also offers customers the opportunity to buy exactly what they see on the catwalk”
And the man of the hour, David Gandy. He’s wearing a Private White Irish Linen Field Jacket, crafted from 100% Irish linen. A contemporary style for warmer climates and an ideal jacket for layering over crew neck t-shirts. Current price £495.
This is easily one of the best photos I’ve taken in my life.
Good to see you Robin! Robin blogs over at Dandy Dad and wore TK Maxx would you believe to London Fashion Week this year. And doesn’t he look the part!
The gentleman above in green is wearing a rather fetching green with mild fleck wide notch lapel suit from Tailor Made, Navy Paisley braces from Turnbull and Asser and a city trilby hat from Laird worth £165.
Like this one, the gentleman is called Mathias Le Fevre from Denmark, living in London and you can catch his lifestyle blog here.
Edmond from Cuts for Him had the genius idea of turning up with a leather holdall that doubles up as a camera bag. Edmond can fulfil his duty as a photographer and model whilst maintaining a sharp, unhurried look.
Edmond is also wearing Turnbull and Asser 4×6 double breasted suit and tie, Paul Smith shoes and Garret Leight shades.
Here we have Betty Bachz rocking an awesome snake pattern two piece I believe from Etro. (Although again I couldn’t find on the site). It’s quite awesomely paired with a black and silver paisley shirt from Diesel.
Above and below we have Mr Eric Underwood styled by Deborah La Touche. Eric is going for a coral coloured 4×4 double breasted Tiger of Sweden suit, a white nehru collar Kilgour shirt, Lou boutin brown Oxfords finished with a Thom Sweeney Pocket Square.
Lastly, well done to the aforementioned David Evans from the Grey Fox Blog for doing such a great job handling the social accounts for New & Lingwood over the weekend.
Here he is (won’t thank me for posting this) in a New & Lingwood tropical jacket. (Admittedly too big, he was only trying it on).
That’s it for me this year at London Fashion Week, see you next year folks.
