Leaving my Tailor’s Mark

In the era of bespoke tailoring and custom-made everything, getting your cut through in a market that’s growing faster than day turns into night must be a pretty hard slog.

Kate Moss X TopShop

Nick Grimshaw isn’t a name we hear all too often (or ever) in Australia, but in England he holds a position of enough esteem to find himself good pals with international modelling powerhouse, Kate Moss. She, however, is a name we see bandied about often, which is no surprise even more so now that recently her collaboration […]

The perfect place, the perfect day, an OB Way of Life

Fashion is what you buy; style is what you do with it. Though for the men of Orlebar Brown, a UK-based men’s resort and casual wear label, style extends to include a little more than just threads; encapsulating everything to food, clothes, cars and overall lifestyles, dubbing everything worthy a part of the ‘OB Way […]

Mr. Porter does ‘sustainable’

Hacking-up old military fabrics might seem like another version of an Aussie Disposals operation at first, but it’s only when you scratch the surface of British designer Christopher Raeburn’s tinkerings that you see what more can be done. While most would write it off as recyclable or rubbish, old military surplus is something that breathes […]

LC: Men – J.W. Anderson

Gender-blurring aficionado J.W. Anderson took to the runway for this season’s London Collections: Men in a blaze of effeminate fashion that left even the most unsold of fashion enthusiasts with a smile.

By Henry Ng.  Orlebar Brown’s philosophy reads “styles that take you from morning to evening, holiday to home, sunglounger to sundowner”. When the OB team brought their collection to Sydney recently for a showing, it was easy to see how that philosophy has translated successfully throughout the versatile products. Launched in 2007, photographer-turned-designer Adam Brown […]

Budd shirt makers of London

By Leo Parker. Style, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder but, every now and then you come across bastions of sartorial superiority and elegance which make it impossible not to be impressed. Budd Shirtmakers of Piccadilly Arcade, London, are one such example of this and they have been responsible for crafting […]

DJs food events

By Holly Thomas.  Tucked away in the basement dwellings of department store David Jones lays David Jones’ spectacular food hall. With wall to wall fresh delis selling everything from chocolate coated strawberries to succulent pieces of meat and an amazing pantry section full of jarred goods, it seemed only fitting to host various talk and […]

Ted Baker’s SS13 Finishing School

There’s no lying that Ted Baker doesn’t do things by the book. From their designs, prints, fits and styles, the Ted Baker name is synonymous internationally with something different to the run-of-the-mill men’s and women’s clothing options we see in the mainstream. Taking a global perspective on a niche market, the Ted Baker spring-summer 13-14 […]

British menswear with a twist: Georgina Hunt

You’ve just finished your studies at London’s Middlesex University. What drove you to the end?
