If there was one staple piece of autumn/winter wear that's been a flag-bearer for my Menswear E-Commerce store Hawkins & Shepherd, it's the 100% British Cashmere Overcoat. It's a collaboration garment borne of a long working established relationship with myself and Savile Row trained woman's designer Calder London.
For those asking if my recent jaunt to Reims was as good as it looking in my Instagram pictures, it was. You probably guessed that I was there on behalf of Laurent-Perrier to celebrate 50 years of the esteemed Brut La Cuvée Rosé. A champagne with an illustrious history. Perfected in each stage of its making, remarked for its consistency and its high quality.
I going to elaborate further on this exquisite French Connection Deluxe Pile Coat as it's drawn a lot of attention on my Instagram feed. Firstly, it's a double breasted wool-blend with a heavily textured look. A lot of bloggers and sartorialists will tell you never to wear a double breasted open, which is true for suit jackets and long coats as they will lose their shape under the unevenness of the fabric.
The word you'll hear most associated with the 1920's is 'roaring'. It really was a period where more than ever in our history, people were conscious of having a style and more importantly, being able to express themselves through their individualism. With the uptick in secret club events evoking the clandestine nature of 20's Speakeasy's, I thought it would be appropriate to put a style guide together. But first a quick bit of information on some of the reasons on how the 20's earned its roaring reputation.
If there is one piece of clothing that can define a look for the autumn/winter seasons, it is a statement overcoat. Most men have a large number of essential coats for winter such as a leather jacket, a shearling jacket and probably navy, black and camel overcoats. However to mix it up a little bit, check out the ASOS collection of overcoats, including this incredible green, camel, maroon number for only £85.
I had a great response from a Mental Health blog I posted on the site a few weeks back. I'm really pleased it resonated with so many of you and thank you all for your contributions and comments. Here today I'm wanting to draw a spotlight on a well-being journal that's being launched on Kickstarter entitled The Zelo Journal.
I know you'll all be inundated with Christmas Wishlist's and gift guides this year. However, I only want to deliver the gifting ideas that will save you time and save you money. Today I want to introduce you to The Grooming Constellation by Estee Lauder Companies.
