Hackett Spring/Summer 2011 collection

By Laura on March 15th, 2011

The quintessentially British label, Hackett have launched their spring/summer 2011 collection. Comprised of four ranges, Hackett have tried to bring a classy sophisticated look to almost every summer event, whether it be a day in the country, a business engagement or just relaxing by the seaside. Although it is quite a traditional collection, I can’t help but love it. There are just so many timeless pieces worth the investment.

The four ranges include the Correspondent collection, which is inspired by “the globetrotting gentleman”, and incorporates light-weight, warm weather suiting and iconic travel garments, such as safari jackets, chinos and macs, with a contemporary cut and style. The Mayfair collection shows off the classic Hackett tailoring combined with knitwear in summery tones of fresh lilac, warm pink and mint green. The collection is a real blend of sophisticated, casual sportswear. The Caribbean collection continues a travel theme with bold colours and prints on cotton and linen trousers, shorts, polos, casual shirts, and swim wear. Finally the Nautical collection comprises of traditional maritime colours, and key pieces including a double-faced navy jacket with red lining, horizontal striped blazers, lightweight white suiting and nautical striped polo shirts.

For those of you who like the sounds of the collection your in luck because to celebrate the launch of the new season collection, Hackett is giving away an essential Hackett beach kit through their Facebook page. Check out their fan page here for all the details.

On a side note I absolutely love the photography for the collection. You can see more images on their Flickr page here

Dee and Ricky loveheart Lego brooches

I love it when a good fashion mystery gets solved, and last week Style Salvage unearthed the names of the two siblings we featured recently on Love the Look.
They’re called Dee and Ricky and they make the cute Lego heart badges snapped by the Sartorialist and sported by Kanye West. They come in classic red, multi or for the dead inside, black. It’s too late for Christmas but they would make a perfectly non-soppy Valentine’s gift, or even better a post-Christmas treat for yourself should Santa’s haul prove to be disappointing.

Brandish Inspiration: The Sartorialist Shoots Chanel Menswear in Fantastic Man 8

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Chanel1Web.jpg

It’s that time of year when men and women of every age are all forgetting about work and turning their thoughts to something much more important- Christmas presents. I’m not talking about gifts for the slightly odd uncle or some flowers for that 80-year old neighbour who suddenly said ‘hello’ yesterday even though you heard she had died two months ago (just me?) I mean a Chanel Menswear tweed coat.

The great Karl Lagerfeld is no idiot when it comes to the gift-giving season and for the eighth issue of Fantastic Man, he has asked Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) to shoot the latest collection of elusive Chanel menswear for an article written by Charlie Porter. Wow.

What I Saw Today’s pared down fashion sketches

By Jonathan Smith on September 30th, 2008

sc000876e1.jpgThis is a guy going by the name of Designerman, similar to the Sartorialist but at the same time oh so different. The difference comes in that where the Sartorialist is armed with a camera, Designerman is armed simply with some pencils and a sheet of sketch paper. His blog is filled with some really cool sketches of people wearing some really cool clothes, or perhaps just some pants.

Though obviously less detailed than photographs these sketches give you the essence of a look, which is a lot more adaptable and easier to tailor to your own image, also they give you a crazy backwards view into the process of fashion design: from sketch to garment and back to sketch again… Ooh postmodern and stuff!

Check out the site here and my faves after the jump.

Love The Look: Men at Kris Van Assche, Paris

By Will Reid on September 29th, 2008

The Kris Van Assche show was bound to attract some of the fash-pack’s best-dressing men and with the help of The Sartorialist, we need not fly to Paris to savour the front-row fashion savoir-faire.

These guys are both rocking fairly androgynous looks and as Isabelle mentioned earlier, it’s no secret that Doc Martens are the industry’s hot (but slowly cooling) item. I like the other man’s over-sized bag but what interests me the most is his headscarf. D&G featured Queen-chic headscarves on their runway last season and being of Scottish origin, I fail to not feel a slight home-sickness when faced with high-fashion previously seen in my gran’s wardrobe.

Fashion inspiration comes when you least expect it!

One for the bloggers… Scott Schuman, better known as The Sartorialist, has hit the big time by starring in Gap’s autumn 2008 line-up. The street snapper chronicled his stint in front of the camera, as opposed to behind it, on his own blog.

One of the few pictures from the Sartorialist’s London visit has surfaced and it’s a wonderful piece of British nostalgia. The tasselled loafers look great with the mustard top and oxblood bag, like the commenters I’m not so sure about the fit of the jeans but I think we can let him off!

Andre 3000 and Kanye West collaborate

By admin on July 17th, 2008

This is only vaguely fashion related but who can resist Brandish favourites Kanye West and Andre 3000 doing a bit of choreographed dancing? The other partakers in this slightly bizarre video are beatmakers Sa-Ra and P.Diddy’s former butler-turned-singer Fonzworth Bentley. Together they call themselves C.O.L.O.U.R.S which stands for cool outrageous lovers of uniquely raw style.

Bringing this back to fashion, Taz of Sa-Ra has been featured in a couple of Sartorialist photographs on Men.Style and seems to have a very eye catching look. Do we have a future style icon in the making?

Outfit pick: Sartorialist-style summer shorts

By admin on July 17th, 2008

sartorialist short suit sports jacket.jpg
The Sartorialist isn’t convinced by shorts suits, but his images of sports jackets worn with shorts does indeed work well for the summer months. If you’re not sold on the idea of a shorts suit but want to look smart this summer see after the jump for my outfit pick which team madras with a pale chambray check and sturdy leather plimsolls. Clubmaster-style sunnies add a dose of bookish retro and the jacket finishes of the smart look.

Purple Moccasins: Yay or Nay?

By admin on June 20th, 2008

purple shoes.jpgI’ve been slightly Sartorialist obsessed lately, but seeing as his Men.Style blog is pretty well hidden within the site, I thought I’d bring this post to your attention. In it, he notes that Italian men have taken to purple the same way British men take to grey. Now that it’s summer, they’ve graduated from purple sweaters to moccasins.

Being a lover of all things purple, I love the look. But what do you guys think? Vote in the poll after the jump.

The Sartorialist’s ‘Done Right’ on Men.Style

By admin on June 18th, 2008

paleblueblazer.jpg‘Done right’ is one of the most interesting features on Men.Style.com right after the monthly 10 rules and Glenn O’Brien’s blog. The Sartorialist’s style insights are always a good read, even if they’re aimed towards the slightly older gentleman.

This feature’s main style tips are pale blue blazers, vintage shoes, shorter (not short!) shorts, spring scarves and white shoes. White shoes are a difficult one as they either make you look like a Mediterranean style icon or an English pimp, depending on how they’re worn. Pale blue blazers are a great look and I think more people would wear this if menswear stores started taking a few more risks with colour.

Seeing as we’ve been bleating on about the merits of short/mid length shorts for months now, what’s taking it so long to hit the high streets? I don’t know if my eyes can take anymore combat Cargo shorts.

Stop Press: The Sartorialist comes to London!

By admin on May 21st, 2008

sartorialist london visit summer men's.jpgI am mentally planning each and every one of my outfits for next week because Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is coming to London for the first time. He apparently thinks it is already summer in London, better check Accuweather Scott!

He announced the news on his blog yesterday, saying: “I can’t wait to shoot some of the famous London Sun Bunnies! or at least run into some of the Top Gear guys.”
Thank God he was joking, can you imagine an image of Jeremy Clarkson on The Sartorialist? It would be enough to commit fashion hari-kiri.

Denim on Denim – It can be done

By admin on April 15th, 2008

levisjacket.jpg

For eons, I’ve had the denim on denim look as the sole preserve of builders and creepy men in clubs. But seeing this picture at the Sartorialist has changed my mind for good. Although it’s best left for the colder months, the look can be recreated with this LVC 1936 type 1 Jacket.

The problem with most Denim on Denim looks is that the jacket is usually ill-fitting. With the cinchback design, it’s possible to create a strong V-line, which is what sets off the jacket in the picture. The other major problem I had with this look was that the denim didn’t match. As this is a navy blue, it should easily match at least one pair of jeans in your closet. The jacket costs £125 and is available from Cultizm.com.

Tom Ford in Fantastic Man

By Isabelle on March 14th, 2008

Tom_fantastic_man_fordWe’ve been waiting for the latest issue of Fantastic Man with baited breath and not only does it have a beautifully footnoted interview with Tom Ford but it also features Scott Schuman (aka The Sartorialist, but you know that) and a beautifully photographed Maurice Sheltens shoot showing how to pack your clothes properly.

The designer talks about his art collection and his time in New York at the tail end of the ’70s. He also discusses the sexuality that runs through all his creative endeavours: ‘Sex is part of my image’ he says. ‘I’m extremely sensual. If I like someone I want to touch them, if I love them I want to hold onto them. I’m very physical.’
Ford compares himself to Alexander McQueen and Nicolas Ghesquière saying: ‘I am very much a designer but I am not an artist and I have never pretended to be.’

The Sartorialist snaps New York Easter Parade

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Easterparade
Every Easter in New York they have a wonderful Easter Parade, but unlike the overblown Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade the Easter Parade is an altogether more genteel affair. Donning their finest hats and suits people parade down Manhattan’s streets looking very sophisticated. The Sartorialist had some wonderful pictures up last year, and this year the pictures are just as good. The images capture New York and the pleasure of dressing up brilliantly.
