Evening Style Mongers. The Oscars last night provide neat excuse to go back and comment on black tie and also Baftas again a bit (as previous post got hacked) and compare what happened style wise on the men. The other issues arent my remit. But what a massive balls up though with best picture envelope, eh? Top jokers. How could they nause up on such a grandly global high-vis scale? Even me and my lot could have pulled that one off more securley. Totes-pillocks. Rather good to see such panic and chaos at that level though. And a sweating bald bloke being rude&short with poor old Warren Beaty. Anyway, I thought best look was Pharrell, in Chanel. With all that accessory caper going on about his torso, too.

The GQ have posted its six best dressed men zi Oscars (click), so have a shufty at that and will get back and finish this later on.. right now, gotta do myself hake with ndjua. Apols. There is some good style stuff to consider,  like Ryan’s frilled Gucci shirt.. but I really am doppio starving.

Now revisting this (two nights later) finding its a bit of dull subject in some ways. Thought I cared, now not so sure. Just read some other coverage elsewhere thats talking bout ‘pooling’ round the trousers. Of course that shouldnt happen. Happend to Matt Damon, looked well shabby-odd know one points it out and deals with it. Straight red really, but talking about it is dull. 


Shannon DB Tom Ford featuring Missus, (models own)

Briefly, I liked Michael Shanons look, who I saw proudly bowling down Albermarle with a pram only last Thurday. My boy Rob Brydon pointed him out to me. Liked him in his Tom Ford DB. Andrew Garfield looked nice and rangey in a handsome Tom Ford SB too. A great straight up black & white rig.

Dev Patel looked pretty good in cream Burbs though lacked something- maybe should consider what Eddie Red’ did in cream dior with black pocket square? Maybe.

Also looking good was Mahershala Ali in black on black shirt Zegna- a particularly good look on a black man, but someone stuffed a pointless-knee-jerk pocket snotter in his pocket… that look is well late. Clean would have done it fine. Yellow card for that, if we were doing cards, that is. Might bring back the Style Referee at this rate. Was gonna talk about think how being ‘of colour’ really helps for black tie on the red carpet. Was gonna, but bit shattered and have little to say at this time. The Baftas were fractionally more interesting- more error to mock. Except for my two boys: They looked great. Style fact.

PS. Picked up a whole new roster of altenrative bits in town today that might help even stances not be dull, so do stay tuned.

PPS. Also got some proper slippers than Niven would have been proud of. Put a nail thru the delicate leather soul while on hake drill. That fragile..

Morning Style Merchants. Bought this massive patchwork square thing from Comme des Garcons at Dover Street Market (click). Its part of the Good Design Shop bit. Am double effected by it, happily losing self in this new thing, for no other motive than I love it. A new flag for a new era. Getting a pitcure of how plan to wear it is far harder than actaully wearing it, however. 


Rad neck.

Right at this moment, vague, diredctionaless editorial isnt a problem as think have lost/disenfranchised all/most of viewers. Gone invisible. Noticed this invisbility the other night at the Brits bash, too. Invisibility in head is way forward; for freedom. This flag is the start of the new plan, so can make it up as go along.  Theme for the weekend. The spirit of today, in song form, below.  

Gonna do some current style on here from Baftas, Beast and Brits tomorrow. For now, its gone flag-bohemian Woodstock. Gonna get myself a bloody YouTube chanel. Yeah? Influencers? Pah! (How does one apply for a YouTube chanel? The Genral Post Office?)

IMG_2960Another version, work in progress.

See what I mean about how to shoot? Need a new M.O. Applied for one of those too. Due from Amazon later in week.  

Could cause some issues if worn wrongly when riding Pashely, Am driving West though. Will report back. 

Stubbs out.

PS. This Mitchell moment made me cry this morning. Found it on old post here, but dont care. here Joni is again.

Morning Style Merchants. I am still rather vexed bout getting hacked and having a post obliterated. I struggle enough to get stuff up on here as it is, and was dead keen on that post, for some reason. The post was bout Bafta dressing, but it had good music and moment captured within. Bafta is done now, but despite that am gonna stick it back up if I can. No time now though. . Got time for Hopeton Lewis & U Roy though: Tom Drunk

This came out year I was born, making me double old. Taking my godson/Budhason out in the manor today who has just turned 16. Eating at Jims Cafe down Chatsworth Road and looking at Stoney/CPCompany et at, down at the Hackney Walk (clicky) are two of our plans. There will be style&fashion. Oh yes, for I am #FashionUncle.

When all that, and column and film star is done, back on to here. Cometh the res-design..

I gotta a bag-o-things wanna talk about here but have no time for this morning. Keeping them in the bag, for now, and this is my bag of choice for today, the new Airsilk printed silk holdall from the Hermes. Am bang loving it, even though its £1,100. Designed by Henri d’Origny, a fella who has been designing Hermes prints for 50 years, and is also responsible for the marque’s emblematic Cape Cod kettle. The pattern  motif is known as Cavalcadour, taking its name from the harness decorations worn horses belonging to Comte de Chambord, Grandson of Charles X, yeah? Packs down to almost niche as is so so light. 



Hermes Airsilk holdall.

This is what am gonna chat about, if it kills me..

-The menswear shows AW17 (that have just been), good and bad stuff.

-The perils of ‘Designer clothes’ and why I think they’re about the worst thing to be into style wise- Designer fashion is double naff- and I can prove it.

-Bafta dressing and why black tie can be killer dull/pony.  And how it can be good, too.

-Wanna elaborate o something a very cool, laid back spiritual designer said to me bout “first Brexit, then Trump, now Gucci…”

Stubbs out.

PS.I actually feel far better for this. Hope you lot like the music. Go have a wicked day and stay tuned, something will happen…

Evening Style Mongers. Keep gettin hacked on here and its upseting. It liked the last post. I had some sort of flow to it and it was good fun, and true, and now its gone for second time. Not sure can do it again. Please stop hacking my blog RxRHacKEr. Cant even find way back via the auto saves. #Glum. This sound below sounds a bit sad, so it works for this moment; Ibeyi. Destroy, if it you must, Hacker-man/woman.

Following from where was on Sunday night, visiting people, mid post, met a charming woman called Maya, and she introduced me two the work of her twin daughters, who are Ibeyi. They’re dead good.  Hello Maya. Hope things super good.

Evening Style Mongers. Shot this on The Row during LondonFashionWeekColonMenapostropheS. The Doctor wasnt even practising. Gotta love his all British flex, non, including Peter Jones? #Strong. Full Marx.


The Doctor snagged the Gary A’ coat for £990 in the  J.J.Cale. How there is a bespok sale, I dont know, but he must have special dispensation. Lock softy Fedor a is a bit spesh. Other moments included the tiny orb&septre on his Vivienne Westwood

Nice one Doctor, was top plezj’ stancing to you. I dubbed it a serious statement Sunday ensemble for LFWM’s and the Doctor explained ” I have standards- to blend in!” 

Meanwhile, in other news, my hippy nerd, Karoli, who I am very fond of (note), has gone (effectively) mental and AWOL as well. The double*.Last heard from in Budapest. Need a new nerd. Let it be heard. I’m doing the best that I can…
