By Laura on February 20th, 2012

One of our favourite online retailers, MRPORTER.COM, is turning One years old, and to celebrate they have teamed up with a number of designers to produce exclusive pocket squares for the site.
Brands involved include:

Alexander Olch
Band of Outsiders
Drakes
The Elder Statesman
Jean Shop
Oliver Spencer
Our Legacy
Richard James
YMC

This limited edition project is sure to turn the pocket square into a collector’s item, with only 50 of each square available.

The pocket square project is just one of a series of initiatives celebrating MR PORTER’s first birthday. From tomorrow a special MR PORTER birthday microsite will bring together a menu of anniversary content, including the launch of an interactive global treasure hunt.

The designer squares go on sale tomorrow on www.mrporter.com

Stately homo: time for some eccentric grandad chic

By Colin Chapman on May 13th, 2009

grandad_chic.jpgHaving lost not inconsiderable time exploring in blogworld this morning, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt – thanks to Mister Mort – it’s that old guys have the best style, and young guys wearing old guy style have all the best fun. Here’s a fun collection of items to give you that gentlemanly, eccentric beyond your years appeal.

You may think I’m a little crazy in recommending tweed at this time of year, but the tweed is in the detail here and a tie shouldn’t make you sweat.

Love the Look: Waris Alhuwalia at Ben Cho

I have a bit of an obsession with Waris Ahluwalia, the jewellery designer, actor and sometime Ben Cho collaborator.
Café Mode’s Géraldine snapped him looking amazingly turned out for the Ben Cho show in New York recently. It’s a happy coincidence but the dark grey background adds to the tonal mix of his outfit. I love the dun brown suit, and the contrast with the delicate floral pocket square. Research has shown that if you stare at a picture of a tree for long enough it lowers your heart rate, but I think in this instance you could happily substitute tree for Waris Ahluwalia.

Love The Look: Menswear Maestro Michael Bastian at Fashion Rocks

Condé Nast’s fifth Fashion Rocks event was hardly devoid of well-dressed men: Valentino, Justin Timberlake (who’s fashion-savvy has become a matter of debate…well, for me anyway,) Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford (who’s rumoured to have scored an up-coming VMAN cover.) My point is that, for a menswear designer, Michael Bastian more than held his own in this pantheon of celebs.

I love his vintage-looking blazer as well as his loafers and with an open shirt and a pair of well-tailored grey shorts, he is a vision of relaxed but high-fashion cool.

Notice the subtle pocket-square (an emblem of any well-dressed male) and devour this style inspiration.

Style Icons: Mad Men

If you work in an office dominated by a smart casual dress code, you may find yourself actually wanting to wear a suit from time to time. For these people, Mad Men has become compulsive viewing. Not just because it’s a great show, but it harks back to a time when men actually wore all three pieces of their suit to work. Today’s average rucksack carrying, shirt and no tie wearing office worker could do with taking a few style tips from Don Draper (pictured left).
