Men’s Fashion

Don’t tell anyone, but the red carpet is an overrated source of style inspiration. A-listers always look great but the clothes are free, the stylists unseen and the dress code, well, unless you have a film premiere in the calendar, it’s unlikely you’ll be stealing many of those outfits. Which is why, more often than

In menswear, the clothes that truly seem to endure are the ones that offer the person wearing them some kind of function. They are literally fit for purpose. That’s the reason so many so many military pieces make the transition from the front line to the runway, and it’s also the case with workwear. Items

Even if you’ve avoided the gym for the majority of your adult life, it’s likely that at one time or another, you’ve vowed to get in shape and pushed through a few push-ups. Maybe in your bedroom, late at night. Maybe in the lounge when no one’s in. Either way, every man – gym hero

When hibernation mode kicks in, style can easily become an afterthought, or at least something you do unconsciously. You get dressed in the dark, literally and figuratively. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In winter, you reach for a cable knit jumper with the same cold-snap reflex that causes you to start ordering real

It’s been a busy year, with highs, lows and WTFs aplenty. We had more than one royal wedding, a world cup, a heatwave, the successful launch of a reusable rocket and a bit of a fuss about Europe. Menswear has had its moment, too. And as always, there have been well-dressed people, badly dressed people,

It seems strange now that hip-hop was once fashion’s rejected child, obsessed with brands but largely locked out of the party. Now, rappers front campaigns for the world’s biggest fashion houses, snap up most of the front row spots and take home all the gongs on award show red carpets, even if they’re still not

It’s been a big year for trainers, both literally and figuratively. Building on the chunky styles that set 2017’s Richter scales racing, in 2018 platform-esque stompers made way for nineties-inspired dad shoes. We also saw technology come on in leaps and bounds with innovations like Nike’s React cushioning system and the rollout of Adidas’s 3D-printed

Mother’s Ruin. Bunter’s Tea. Kill-Grief. Roll-Me-In-The-Kennel. Even if you’ve never tasted gin, the always-fruity (and slightly disturbing) nicknames of this historic spirit should give you an idea of its reputation as a potent, moreish concoction that can fell even the hardiest drinker. Its vigour might account for its early popularity – when getting steamed was

“Age is whatever you think it is,” Muhammad Ali once said. “You are as old as you think you are.” It’s a nice thought, isn’t it? That, with the right mindset, you can just sort of think yourself younger. Lovely. For those of us not floating like butterflies in the metaphysical realm, however, the first

If, like everyone else, you have long been confused and frustrated by the smart-casual dress code, base a pair of pinstripe trousers at the core of your wardrobe and you’ll make the job a whole lot easier. The fine-line print hasn’t always been seen as a key piece in a man’s everyday arsenal. For a

Also known as a down jacket – or if you’re Wyclef Jean, a bubblegoose – the puffer jacket is that rarest of things: a nineties fashion staple with real practical benefits. These padded wonders are capable of locking in heat in even the iciest of conditions, making them the first choice not just for hip-hop

Seen the news lately? It’s grim. We’ve got sea life choking on plastic, homeless baby orangutans and an overall picture of more people than resources to go around. It’s something to mull over while you’re applying your moisturiser, serum and eye cream before bed tonight, or restocking your shower gel, hair wax, and deodorant. How
