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.

TOM FORD & His Merry Materialed Men.

Time for a tale of style serious, and cautionary mixing of dress; presented is suiting by TOM FORD circ AW/09.
With his collections arriving each season with no surprise about how "on the money" they will be, the ex-Gucci designer manages masculinity in male dressing like no other. A tour of the 1950s power suiting era is the direction, but with an all round softer shouldered structure and feel.
Standout favorites are the grey suit with the super-wide pink check; the flashes of colour from the shirt and tie combination is English Dandy in all the right ways, and traditional ‘white picket fence’ widely cut plaid ties or knitted ties that have been specially created to finish at a point, rather than the expected blunt horizontal line. 
The cautionary part of this tale, should sit with the more "experimental" of the Gentry dressers. if you choose only part elements of this collection remember to go fourth with style notes in hand to ensure a carefully crafted look will compliment, not conflict, Sir TOM FORD and his merry materialed men.
