By Tony Sylvester. “On the pleasant shore of the French Riviera, about half way between Marseilles and the Italian border, stands a large, proud, rose-colored hotel. Deferential palms cool its flushed façade, and before it stretches a s...

Pitti A/W 2023: Too many negronis, too few makers

February 3rd 2023

By Tony Sylvester It’s been three long years since I last shuffled along the cobbled streets of Florence, winding my way to the Fortezza Da Basso, the medieval castle that hosts Pitti Uomo, the international menswear trade fair. Without statin...

From my prespective, there were people at Pitti who went for work, lifestyle, as well as some who... I can't figure out why they went. I came out of it with a great wealth of new connections and many beautiful purchases....

The dilemma of associations

October 28th 2022

By André Larnyoh If you know the photographer Alex Natt (above), you’ll know that he has his own somewhat distinct uniform: a loose oxford shirt, wide jeans or chinos, well-worn cordovan loafers and a baseball cap of some kind. Simple, ...

Video: Tony Sylvester, style and subcultures

September 19th 2022

Can subcultures ever exist in this century the way they did in the last? Why are logos better on some clothes than others? Why do French men dress like happy Englishmen? When I introduced this talk with Tony Sylvester I promised a wide ranging mens...

Summer Top 10: Polos, more polos, and espadrilles

July 6th 2022

I wasn’t going to do a ‘high summer’ version of our seasonal Top 10. After all, the spring edition back in April included such things as panama hats and boat shoes. But everyone’s stock has been arriving so late that the int...

Be open minded. Or, what is style?

September 3rd 2021

I believe that core to understanding clothes, and perhaps even to enjoying them, is appreciating styles that are not your own. If you can’t, it closes you off to dozens of ideas - something as simple as the shape of a sleeve, or a colour comb...

Be open minded. Or, what is style?

Match in comments:
The problem with work coats and shapeless clothes is that it’s about a retro look of the working class in the grand epoch , Apache types for instance . Armani was nothing to do with that because he actually gave a styl...
