Men’s Fashion

Holidays are great. No one’s denying that. But why suffer annoying couples who’ve all found the same online deal, in a bed that thousands have done the deed in (you know they have) when you could spend a night with your mates in a treehouse, or a military pod, or even a castle? This year,

They say life begins at forty, but that’s not usually the case when it comes to fashion. Forty is the age when you swap sneakers for square-toed brogues, when your slim black jeans become bootcut and unnervingly blue, and when the fit of your shirt gives way to a rapidly swelling paunch. Or so we

An enlightened man no longer thinks of pink as something that only comes cut with an A-line hem or replete with buttons that fasten the wrong way around. And yet, it’s still a colour that’s criminally underrepresented in most wardrobes. “The main worry for guys is that they could look effeminate in pink,” says Mr

Camo print has become something of a staple in menswear over the years. It’s a pattern that has come out of hiding, figuratively and literally, from its military origins to its infiltration of the streetwear scene. Originally designed to go unnoticed, wearing camouflage today is all about standing out. The print itself is thought to

There are two questions that, as a watch critic, I hate being asked. The first comes with alarming frequency, and is this: “What’s your favourite watch?” Often, before my hand can hit my face, it’s caveated by, “I’m sure you get that question all the time…” Or, “you probably don’t have one, but…” And worst

Quick we’re flatlining. Grab the defibrillator. Clear! The beating heart of shopping as we know it is in dire need of a restart. Last year, 85,000 retail jobs disappeared from the UK in just the first nine months. Department store chain House of Frasier went into administration. Turnover was down by £113 million at retail

Yes, if you’ve got money, it’s entirely possible to dress well. But it’s no guarantee. Jeremy Clarkson, Simon Cowell – these are rich men, but you wouldn’t know it from the clothes they wear. A big bank balance gives you access to the finer things, but it doesn’t buy you taste. But what if it’s

“Do you remember the first time?” crowed Jarvis Cocker back in 1994. If the answer is yes, you may have wanted to forget the nineties ever happened – jorts, tinted sunglasses and bandannas all ensured the decade ingrained itself as the era that style forgot. Despite this unceremonious assessment, the nineties resurgence has hit full

A grooming routine that doesn’t include moisturiser is basically no grooming routine at all. You can get by without a specific eye cream, comfortably skip the face scrub and scrimp on the shampoo, but no moisturiser? That’s crazy talk. Even putting aside the damage caused by extreme weather and thick pollution, chances are you drag

“Italians see fashion as a search for beauty,” says Matteo Persivale, one of Milan’s best-dressed men and a senior writer at Corriere della Serra, the country’s leading daily newspaper. Perhaps that’s why those in less tropical climes are still so drawn to the Italianate style — it breaks free of the workaday pragmatism of traditional
