Get acquainted with this falls Classic Coat Trend

 

Hey! guys so here’s what’s new lately on my thoughts for Men’s Winter Coat Trends this Fall. Just recently, I recall  seeing  Vogue doing an Interview with Actress Alicia Silverstone who gives insight to her iconic yellow plaid outfit in the Cult teen Movie Clueless explaining how it holds a significance in popular culture and the plaid trend that dominate the catwalk ‘keeps coming back in style”. Believe it or not the orginal twin set plaid outfit worn by Alicia in the movie was Dolce & Gabanna chosen by Costume Designer Mona May and Film Director Amy Heckerling.

To this day, the fascination with plaid has stuck with me ever since and so it will always hold a special place in my heart forever as it’s such an iconic piece in popular culture that even Versace dedicated a whole collection to pay homage to plaid.

 

For those of you wondering what is ‘Blackwatch Tartan’, and where does it originate from? Infact you’d be astonished to find out that it is associated with the British Infantry Regiment that has roots dating back to 1715 born after the first Jacobite Rebellion.

Interestingly enough The Blackwatch is now part of the Royal Regiment of Scotland founded in July 1881 by Royal Colonel: HRH The Duke of Rothesay is quite special don’t you think? It’s interesting what you can actually find out about the origins of clothing throughout history and society.

 

“Black Watch Tartan A Cult Classic Heritage Trend” 

I first realised seeing this style of coat worn during the House of Holland Show by former Fashion Editor of Teen Vogue Phillipe Picardi but managed to find an alternative close enough to the trend at ZARA MAN which is my number 1 go to for trend pieces and find similar styles from the runway from season to season here.

You can’t go wrong with Zara when it comes to trend pieces just because they are so on point and the quality you find here is great which you can guarantee that’s reflected in the brands premium price point.

This is what I love about the high street because you can emulate designer looks and I do love to mix less expensive trend pieces with designer pieces at times to create individual looks of my own. Personal style and taste is always something that has stuck with me rather than lavishly following trends and let’s face it who even has the money to splash on new clothes all the time right.

Sometimes even my most favourite statement pieces have been found in the SALE and desire to wear them out as much as I can is limited even during a lockdown because we all have our favourites.

SUSTAINABLE LUXURY | THE NAECO TRIDENT SUNGLASSES COLLECTION

A NEW VIEW IN MY NAECO 'DO GOOD LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD' CAMPAIGN FOR SPRING SUMMER 2020

Sustainable fashion has been at the focus of the apparel and clothing industry recently and it’s heartening to see the brand Naeco producing their sunglasses using repurposed plastic bottles from our oceans.

The Deep Connection with the Ocean is Naeco’s DNA, and Founder Zak chose to be a business that reduces waste, recycles and makes a difference.

It’s quite astonishing how their approach to pioneer eco textiles makes for a stylish design and investing in products like these will help secure cleaner oceans for future generations to come.

 

Just 5 percent of plastics are recycled effectively while 40 percent end up in the landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.

Much of the remainder is burned. Did you know, at least 8m tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans – which is the equivalent of dumping the contents of one rubbish truck into the ocean every minute.

Treat Yourself and the Planet Better

Naeco is the proud winner of the DHL Fashion Potential Award 2019. Their new website and Trident Sunglasses collection has just landed and I can’t wait to tell you what they have been working on. So far there are jackets, blazers and other garments all made from recycled plastic in signature super soft fabrics.

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last.

 

 

I just couldn’t wait to do a try on at home for the new collection of Unisex sunglasses designed to suit the face of both men and women including the exceptional high workmanship to the high end German hinges ensure they stay on your head in all situations – even the roughest of weather conditions too.

 

The Ocean is in Our Hands

 

 

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last. When I was asked to model a new sunglasses range for Naeco of course I said yes absolutely 100 percent. Why? Not only because they are a luxury product, and who doesn’t adore something well made and long lasting.

They have a few different styles but the wayfarers were my favourite just because they are light weight and very comfortable. It’s maybe it’s something to do with the German engineered frame is spot on and very versatile to wear whether sailing the highs or poolside lounging.

Most importantly this is a British Brand that is working hard to make a difference and help clean up the planet. Also, during the pandemic we must do our utmost best to support small business and new start up to get the economy going in Britain.

What have you done today to save our oceans? Let’s use less single-sue plastic and together we can solve this huge issue. It’s time to Support the cause and become an Ocean Guardian. Get yours today! Find more on Naeco just here

STYLING THE SEERSUCKER CLASSIC SPORT BLAZER | A DAY OUT AT THE VARSITY POLO MATCH

WHAT TO WEAR TO A POLO MATCH THIS SUMMER - INSPIRATION FOR STYLING THE CLASSIC SEERSUCKER BLAZER

Imagine a Summer of Sartorial Style and being pitch side on the lawn enjoying a pitcher of Pimms with friends – a British Summer Sporting Event wouldn’t be the same without experiencing the thrill of a live Polo Match to say the least. I reminisce about one of my favourite days out to watch a game at Guards Polo Club in Windsor for the Ivy League Jack Wills Varsity Polo Tournaments to see Oxford vs Cambridge……

One of my favourite summer outfits featuring the Classic Seersucker Sport Coat. Summer is the ideal season for watching the polo and the feeling of being outdoors pre- Covid 19 times. This Blazer is one of my favourite summer staples to relax in, great for a day out to watch the polo or club house party. Since my past experience as a polo goal judge, back in my college days, I’ve become quite fascinated with learning the rules of the game where Pimms, Picnics on the lawn and Argentine style BBQ are enjoyed by spectators in a relaxed setting, the divot stomping in between polo chukka’s and immerse yourself in the spirit of polo.

With Pastels associated as a summer classic colour palette, the seersucker blazer or two piece is trending this summer sporting season, so let’s make the most of this summer trend with temperatures set to soar, the classic seersucker let’s you keep cool in a breathable fabric made for summerWhat to wear to the poloWhat to wear to the polo

Highlights of the International Menswear Collections at Camera Moda Uomo Autuno Inverno 2020

As one of the most important dates in the fashion calendar, all focus will be on Milan over the next few days as Fashion Houses are preparing to reveal their new season’s collections for Fall Winter 2020. Camera Moda the official event organiser for Milan Fashion Week returns this season with a jam packed schedule of catwalk shows, presentations and events to celebrate Men’s Fashion Week with style and flair.

The thrilling line up on the fashion week schedule has both established designers as well as emerging talent, even more reason to secure your spot on the FROW for a close up of this seasons key trends.

DUOMO Milano – Italy. It was honestly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever set eyes on with a long climb to the roof before lunch then heading to a catwalk show. Great weather too! Surprising for January.

We visited the Designer Showrooms Milan – one of our favourites from Men’s Fashion Week. I spoke with the Designer Matteo Bigliardi and told me how they are going for a new way of doing Tuxedos. I’ve never seen anything like it I thought it was excellent. Everything was so high quality and well made. I loved the coordinating sets and tried on one of the comfiest coats ever too.
