The Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz seems to have been awarded a heart for fashion. And the menswear fashion weeks, a heart for automatic updates to its fans. I’ve been on a massive life swap/change, so keeping up with the Menswear weeks hasn’t been really accessible. However, the excitement has been more than vibrant on my instagram, rather than on style.com or the GQ (websites). This excitement is reflected on my twitter, by the way.
Above are all snap shots via my iphone of the instagram images from Burberry, Mr Porter, and BOF. The images are instant and self explanatory within local time of the event. Its simply Brilliant! With London kicking off the menswear week in a massive social/tech manner, the menswear market grows. Even Pinterest was mensweared out! Sorry ladies, the men are moving in.
The Tin Man could have pulled off the coloured metallics too and if you think about it, being a Tin Man is a modern different man with some steampunk ideas behind him. Glad you got your heart Mr Tin Man!

Gift shopping for my brothers birthday today. Despite my current low budget ,I decided to go for the one stop at Mr Porter. Just a few bits that got me excited, but obviously I only selected one. My favourite, the Jimmy Choo monk shoes. Stunners!

Men & Luxury can be dangerous.
A style influenced film with an intense plot. Thumbs up on my end and for Danish actor Nikolaj Coster, he definitely gets 5 stars for being a hunk.
p.s. someone take me back to Norway.

Three years ago I created Wally, a personality which represented a man who was part of the upcoming menswear market. I discovered Wally through my Trans-man-tation study, (Trans-Man-Tation : Study of the transformation within male shopping in fashion). At the end of my research my tutor thought I created a man I would take a fancy for, however mansome brings my trans-man-tation and Wally himself to life.
You can find my Where’s Wally book via the link below. Ill scan some bits up from this project and post. http://www.blurb.com/books/672988
Ideally, I would date this man.

Not only were the watches extraordinary and unique, but the event itself was incredible! The display cases, the venue (Park Avenue Armory), the music (The Irrepressibles & Claude Nobs), and simply the presentation of everything was visually stunning! Swanky event, yes, but with a cool edge. The showcase to celebrate the 40 years will be traveling among some of the top cities. Definitely a menswear event not to miss. The link with details follows:
