Nigel Cabourn Umbro Rugby Collection Menswear

The British king of vintage workwear, Nigel Cabourn, has teamed up with Umbro to produce some classic looking sports kit. Signalling Umbro's recent step into rugby as Official Technical Kit Partner to England Rugby, this capsule collection gives a contemporary update to rugby styles from the late 1940s and early 1950s.

This Sky Blue horizontal and vertical striped rugby shirt features an oversized ‘C’ back patch, and, like all rugby styles, looks good on any body shape. Add some wide leg trousers and classic plimsolls and you have a timeless Hockney look.

Gucci Tom Ford Red Velvet Suit

The sign of a confident and secure designer is one who acknowledges the strengths and triumphs of their predecessors. If you were into fashion in the mid 1990s, then there would have been no avoiding Tom Ford’s first collection for Gucci and its luxe and louche velvet suits. This collection was almost as significant as Dior’s New Look in 1947 at catapulting a brand into the spotlight. Tom Ford’s Gucci was sexy as hell.

Over 25 years later, and in Gucci’s 100th year, designer Alessandro Michele has paid homage to this pinnacle of the Tom Ford’s Gucci era and it's looking as timeless as ever. Though it would probably be cheaper buying a 90s original from a vintage seller or auction, not to mention a better investment.

Martine Rose houndstooth coat strong shoulder menswear

It's all about striking a pose, with a bold silhouette like this one, at the moment. I love the strong shoulder on this coat. A power shoulder says strength and this follows a trend that has been pioneered by brands such as Balenciaga, who has continued to push very distinct shapes in outerwear.

Martine Rose is London's home grown answer to Balenciaga, stealthily building a healthy men's and women's fashion brand which recently received investment. One thing to note is, this coat is made from cotton in Mauritius, but it would be great to get the same shape in solid worsted wool from a great British factory. You could always buy separate shoulder pads and stick them in your favourite overcoat.

Menswear Product Of The Week The Pouch Glove

Prada pouch glove orange raf simonsRaf Simons at Prada is basically Raf Simons, but with a triangular logo. While he delivered for his debut menswear collection for Prada, - the fans seemed to be happy - the most memorable items were the coloured leather gloves with an annoying little pouch on the back of the hand which you'll never be able to access easily. Costing £850 you'll have nothing left to put in the pouch anyway! Could it be perfect for the back-of-the-hand Oyster entry onto the Underground?

Menswear Product Of The Week The Down Duffle Coat

Gloverall Descente menswear product of the week best duffle coatThis was the coat getting the most attention during the AW20 trade shows. From Florence to Paris, I saw many men’s buyers and press trying this on and oooing and aring with the best of them.

Left & Below - Descente x Gloverall Down Duffle - £1300

Descente Ltd. is a Japanese sports clothing and accessories company, formed in 1935, when Takeo Ishimoto started the company in Osaka as Ishimoto Shoten. The company logo depicts 3 basic skiing techniques - traverse, schuss and side-slip. It’s another one of those under-the-radar Japanese brands producing minimal yet beautiful product.

This tie-up with Gloverall will be for the Japanese market foremost, but we can all enjoy its tech fabrics in the signature, classic Duffle coat style. I’ve gone for Gloverall’s signature ‘stone’, but it also comes in navy with this striking high-vis orange lining.

Gloverall Descente menswear product of the week best duffle coatMade from a uniquely developed CEBONNER® Horns Nylon fabric, it has a natural wool-like feel and features high water repellence. The Parahood system, uniquely developed by Descente, stops the water pooling inside the hood as it is compactly stored. A ‘Para-zip’ is easily accessible ensuring the hood can be released rapidly in one movement plus it features the internal hiking straps first showcased in Gloverall’s SS20 collection.

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacket

He has previously done collections/collaborations with John Smedley, Kurt Geiger, Rowing Blazers, Habitat, Anthropologie, Lucy Folk, Richard Ginori, Stubbs & Wootton, and now GANT is added to the list. The man in question is Luke Edward Hall, a modern day Hockney with the eye for colour to match.

When GANT’s current Global Artistic Director, Christopher Bastin, return last year, the brand was due some quirky direction. I’ve always been a fan of what he did at the now defunct GANT Rugger brand.

"This collection takes its inspiration from my home in the English countryside, and how I spend weekends there with friends. From jumpers and tweed coats for stalking through fields to 1970s-inspired velvet suits and silk shirts for candlelit dinners, it’s ruggedly elegant and very English.” says Edward Hall.

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacketHe does the same thing for everybody, but that’s okay, because I like it. It’s the same eclectic rift as Gucci.

The standout piece is this cosy corduroy DB in rich reddy brown with brass buttons. It’s a shame they didn’t include one of Luke Edward Hall’s classical heads as pictured. They could have made it detachable. That aside, this is a classic and lifetime wearable piece.

Just add a pink dahlia!

Menswear Product Of The Week The Conran Blue Jacket

Drakes blue suede chore jacket Terence Conran blue

Britain recently lost one of its retail and design kings, Sir Terence Conran, who was famed for his love of cobalt blue. From his shirts to his socks, this knight loved his French blue workwear or 'bleu de travail’. He actually has his own blue called Pantone 072 C, aka Conran Blue.

It help you celebrate this giant of British style, Drake’s has a thick suede ‘Chore’ jacket in this striking blue primary. Made in Italy with horn buttons, it also has a touch of the Hockney’s about it, which I’m sure Terence would have appreciated even more. Wearing this will never be a chore.

Menswear Product Of The Week The Shiny Winter Sandal

Joseph Cheaney Richard Biedul sandal collaboration

Being a geek, it goes without saying that we like a sandal and sock combo. And, we don’t let cold weather stop us when getting our geek footwear on.

Left & Below - Cheaney X Richard Biedul - Vetri - £325

Part of a new capsule collection with English shoemaker, Joseph Cheaney, and, solicitor/model turned artistic director, Richard Biedul, is this elegant 'Vietri' sandal in black rub off hi shine.

This T-Bar sandal, also known as a Gurkha sandal, has something of the jelly and fisherman sandal too and I’m all over it. The high-shine takes it up a notch.

Biedul is a man of good taste and has become one of the most photographed men during London Fashion Week Men’s both on and off the catwalk. This is a man who knows how to rock a suit or Oxford Bag trouser and further proof of his expert eye for detail is seen this new collaboration. I’m sold.
