Mens Style Blog

The stylish commencement of Mr. Gentry opens with a telling tale of hearty practice in mens style thinking. Mr. Gentry is the anonymous name used to bring style musings and insider observations from the working world of our industry to the outside net. Defined as being "the condition or rank of a gentleman", my interpretation is a classically style minded man with a urban interest of dress who pursues the Gentry Style. Mr. Gentry is not just about things being in the "Now", this is simply because by the time I have finished typing the word now its too late, now is already then.

Sartorialist Style Before Its Time...

Having been a follower and avid fan of the world famous Sartorialist blog, where everyday male and female walkers of pavements, roadways and exiting fashion show visitors the world over are photographed by Scott Schulman and documented online, i heard a book was to be released before New York fashion Week 2009.

Naturally it was a pre-order moment of style for any guy or girl, but before getting round to the pre-order stages on Amazon, I was elated to receive a copy of his book last night - 2 weeks early of its UK release! The soft back book collates the best of The Sartorialist's camera work from across the globe, with some insightful textual introductions to his more "muse" worthy street subjects. Each look is not representing a complete taste of style, but "elements" of a look which are inspiring and hope to inspire. The only slight disappointment, from a truely English perspective, is the lack of London City style captured on the pages, most are from Milan, Paris, Stockholm and New York - but who am i to complain, its the best £20 i've never spent!

Available from early september at Borders, Amazon and Liberty London, Priced at £20.


  1. I am so jealous! I want that book NOW!

  2. This book looks fabulous; I can't wait to get my hands on it! And surely an Anglocentric equivilent has to be on its way soon?
