On the Street: Simon

We spotted Simon on Catherine Street in Central London and was instantly captured by his use of colour. The traditional wool suit with a pop of purple is a contemporary take on gentleman’s day-wear.

Simon told us:

“Great style is all about detail and personality. Learning what works for you, and having a sense of humour with respect to dressing are crucial. Glossy men’s magazines have created a generation of men who wear relatively well-cut dark suits and no ties – London is full of them – and though they think they dress well, they exhibit almost absolutely no panache, personality or sartorial charm. Great style is about doing something different with something classic. Subverting just enough to make yourself smile when you catch your reflection.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
