Percival & Korean-based illustrator Aaron Chang

aaron chang illustrator Percival menswearBritish menswear brand, Percival, has joined forces with Korean-based illustrator Aaron Chang. Chang's ivy-style illustrations are featured across a capsule edit of Percival's classic embroidery and screen-printed styles.

The illustrations focus on adventure centred around the three themes of sea, air and land. Chang takes inspiration from his hometown of Busan, Korea, for the collection, as it is known for having incredible seas, sunsets and nature.
 
The collection is available from www.percivalclo.com and at the Percival Soho store.

TheChicGeek says, "This is cute. Percival is a British brand really killing it atm. They are offering men something different, but with taste and is extremely wearable. Only a brand with confidence starts to produce fun product like this. It's moving into the Rowing Blazers territory or maybe even Drake's and that Wes Anderson preppy look I always love. I particularly like the corduroy tote bags.

Percival is six years old and still owned by its co-founder and head designer Chris Gove. By making in London, Percival is able to drop multiple short runs of product a year, keeping its offering fresh & varied. Percival recently provided garments for David Beckham's recent Holiday and designed trousers for 'No Time to Die'."

Grooming Dated Daniel

daniel craig james bond male body hair

daniel craig james bond male body hairWhen Daniel Craig had his birth of Venus (more like Mars) moment, emerging from the sea fully hench, we all knew this sexualised image was the dawning of a new era of Bond.

That was 2006, and was many people’s first introduction to the first of his five Bond films, Casino Royale.

From Left - 2006 -2020

Fast forward to 2020, and, as Craig bows out of his dinner suited role, we get another undressed look thanks to British GQ. 

Now, 52, he looks just as toned and muscular as he did 14 years before. He looks good, but, there’s something of out of step and slightly dated about the image. While he hasn’t changed, men have.

The clean-cut, shaved, tanned and hairless body of 2006 looks almost immature for a man today. There’s a slight hairy treasure trail above his waistband, but it feels like he’s stuck in a Love Island-like time warp sponsored by Veet.

Like I’ve written before, (see below) men are hairy now. From Only Fans porn stars to Frida Kahlo, hairy is lazy and it looks great. I don’t know why, but it just looks right, and that’s the whole point about it looking and feeling contemporary.

Right - We've had a hairy Bond before - Sean Connery
