With London being one of the world’s fashion capitals the British Fashion Council hosted the now 7th season of London Fashion Week Men’s (LFWM). LFWM is here to showcase the work of the best British designers over 4 days with a packed schedule of catwalk shows, presentations and events.
Being passionated about menswear and style I joined in for another season to connect with likeminded creatives and soak in inspiration. In occasion of London Fashion Week Men’s I worked with a hand full of tailors and menswear brands to prepare 4 outfits.
On day 1 of London Fashion Week Men’s I attended a preview of Kirk Originals’ new collection. They showcased their Spring Summer 19 Made in England Sunglasses in the Private White store in Mayfair. I wore a navy plain jacket in a Pure Wool Traveler fabric by Lanificio Cerruti, a white button down shirt by Eton Shirts, a brown knitted tie, a waistcoat in a cotton, linen & wool fabric by Solbiati and a light brown pair of linen & cotton trousers.

Day 2 was the first official day of the fashion shows and I had a busy schedule of shows, events and presentations. I attended showcases by designers such as Oliver Spencer, Edward Crutchley and St. James London featuring New & Lingwood, John Smedley and many more.
With green being the colour of the season I went for a two-piece suit in a beautiful plain green wool, linen and silk fabric by Solbiati. I had the suit made by Tailor Made London’s bespoke service and it has details such as a wide notch lapel, an unconstructed shoulder and a high waisted pair of trousers with double reverse pleats. I paired the suit with a white high collar shirt by Eton Shirts, a navy paisley tie by Serà Fine Silk, navy paisley silk braces by Turnbull & Asser and brown suede penny loafers by Carmina Shoemaker. Completing my outfit, I wore a City Trilby hat in rabbit fur by Laird Hatters and a pair of Esso sunglasses in tortoise by Emon Eyewear.
Day 3 was slightly more relaxed and I spend it going to a few events and shows with my dear friend Alistair Guy. For my 3rd look I was wearing garments from the Saville Row based tailor Alexandra Wood Bespoke. A burgundy double breasted blazer in a breathable mesh woollen fabric by Holland and Sherry, which was ideal for a warm summer day like this. I paired the blazer with a white pin collar shirt by Eton Shirts, a navy cotton silk tie and a light brown pair of trousers in a wool, linen & silk fabric woven by Huddersfield. I finished off the look with a brown pair of tassel loafers by Carmina Shoemaker and a pair of Cran Classic sunglasses from The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear.
My last day of London Fashion Week Men’s was all about the browns. For my final outfit I opted for a plain light brown jacket in a soft blend of Ferla silk and linen. I paired it with a white shirt, a brown knit tie, a light brown pocket square and a light brown pair of trousers in a linen & cotton fabric. I completed this final look with a brown pair of suede penny loafers by Carmina Shoemaker and an Alfred Panama hat by Laird Hatters.
It has been a whirlwind and busy 4 days of London Fashion Week Men’s but it’s been a wonderful time, I met some very interesting people and I’m already looking forward to the next season. But first, I’m off to the menswear tradeshow Pitti Uomo in Florence and Milan Fashion Week Men’s…
