This is an easy to wear look which I have worn on dozens of occasions. It’s simple to put together, and relies solely on the quality and fit of the pieces involved. There’s no stressing on silly details like clashing prints or co-ordinating difficult colours, so what’s left is the silhouette and what the weather/occasion is.

Unlike so many menswear blogs, this isn’t a veiled presentation of how cool and awesome I think I am*. I can’t compete with the magazine style or quality of output of large menswear blogs. 24 Pinfold Street is my own perspective, my thoughts about clothes, their style and design. I can’t pretend to speak to […]
