FANTASTIC, MAN..

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Morning all you Style Mongerinos. How good is this track by William Onyeabor with David Byrne & Money Mark?  Its on The Tonight Show, with that bloke. They joined his band The Atomic Bomb! Band. Quite mental. There are clothes to go in this post too, but lets kick off the music. Bill&Dave, tek it

Lyrics are brilliant. “Now I want you to tell me how I look!?” …lots more to talk bout re William. No time, so just watch and listen to him I suppose.

A super good question?

Saw a brand called Mr&Mrs Italy in Milan. Its fantastic, man.  Outwear classics reworked in wicked fabrics, including washed leathers adorned with patches, appliqué stuff and painted on designs. How good does this look?

MOVING ONWARDS

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Evening Style Merchants. You seen how this month panning out in UK? Its gonna rain. Trust, its gonna come down pretty heavily at some point as well as it is bizarrely now for  June. Fancy something different? Stick on the coat below on by Sealup and It’s Gonna Rain by Reich and see how it fits. Take it Steve..

Steve Reich- Its Gonna Rain.

What with recent torrents, been thinking bout the rain. Am double digging the Explorer Trench from Sealup. With bonded wool flannel lining, lapels and collar and cotton drill water repellent outwear. Also has a plush, removable fox-fur leather interior and additional collar trim. Adore Sealup. Such a good brand, with totally cool product. Sealup open a new shop on Via Brera in Milan come September. S.o…cool, yeah?

In other news, am interviewing Patrick Grant, the menswear designer, at the Hoxton Hotel in Holborn, next Tuesday, (click). More light notes to come with next downpour.

THE IN CROWD

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Morning Style Mongers. Just to confirm, I’m in with The In Crowd, I go where the In Crowd goes etc.. in todays case, its Paris. Wonder if they’ll let us out again if we vote out? Might have to plot in with the out crowd.  Was exciting being in a polling station for such significant gig. Resisted urges to take ‘significant’ pictures of everything and tried to say in the moment. 

 

There’s more good lyrics you know?

“I’m in with the “In” crowd
And I know what the “In crowd knows (How to have fun!)
Any time of the year, donґt you hear? (How to have fun!)
Dressin’ fine, makin’ time…”

so, so Paris Mens Fashion Week, non?
“We breeze up and down the street
We get respect from people we meet
They make way day or night
They know the “In” crowd is out of sight..”

Stubbs In.

<Expect more…>

 

PITTI RUDE BOYS

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Morning The Style Merchants. Am in Pitti and it is hilarious and affirming to witness the Pitti Peacocks are still out in over accessorised force and continue to put the cock into peacock. There are exceptions, natch. This geeza was dropping ivory, cream & choc to stirling effect. Yes Rudie. Put me in mind of this track by Ian Dury. Check the lyrics. Too, too good for Pitti. Take it Ian, old chap. “Dagenham Royal Swagger!”

Ivory, cream, choc-chic at Pitti. Rude.

“Hey, with your natty threads and your nifty dreads
And your Dagenham royal swagger
With your tricky spiels and your Cuban heels
And the face of a carpet-bagger
With your sweet cologne and your mobile phone
And the moves of a desperado
You will cut a swathe on your gangster’s lathe
And an overdose of bravado”

“Hey, with your natty threads and your nifty dreads
And your Dagenham royal swagger
With your tricky spiels and your Cuban heels
And the face of a carpet-bagger

With your sweet cologne and your mobile phone
And the moves of a desperado
You will cut a swathe on your gangster’s lathe
And an overdose of bravado”

Flossin’ with the Luxury Doge himself, Brunello C at the Palazzo last night.

“Hey, you turned up trumps in your purple pumps
And a little bit of made to measure
With your shiny frock and your yellow socks
You’re addressing it to your pleasure
With an urchin crop and a skimpy top
You’ve got to have a good thing going
With your lazy grace and your crazy face
Who cares if your slip is showing?
Now we can see you’re hip to the mother ship
When you pop into the north horizon
You’re the one who’s having all the fun
With everybody’s eyes on
So dance little rude girl, dance
Dance little rude girl, dance
Dance little rude girl, dance
You’ve got to know something
Make me go bananas
Make me feel so right
Take me to Navana
And leave me there all night
Make me hit the ceiling
Send me round the bend
Take me back to Ealing

IMG_3731
When the evening ends
With your natty threads and your nifty dreads
And your Dagenham royal swagger
With your tricky spiels and your Cuban heels
And the face of a carpet-bagger
With your sweet cologne and your mobile phone
And the moves of a desperado
You will cut a swathe on your gangster’s lathe
And an overdose of bravado
So dance little rude boy, dance
Dance little rude boy, dance”

thanks for the help with the post, Ian, images to come, honest

Stubbs out.

THAT DAY

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Evening Style Mongers. This is all can manage at the moment. Having to step away from certain activities and even pretending to do regular style posts on here appears to be one, for just a while. Might add to it, as got some good stuff to mention, but for now, here’s something that made me happy, smile and cry Sunday morning by The The. The LC:M is over, and it was lovely, thanks.  Today was the day I wanted to make to in one piece. Been dreading it with dread for many reasons for about a (fashion) season. Just under. Its done. 

Silly really. Talking of which, check out Matt Johnson’s blow dry. Charming and hopeful song though, no?

Clip this link for a click from Aitors show, below..it was a haunting, superb spectacle.

Ed Skrein & I on Jermyn Street for John Smedley yesterday. His Mum, Maggie, came too, and frankly it was lovely way to spend an L.C.M. Monday lunchtime. Went of to Thom Sweeneys from here, which was properly heavyweight.
