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.

FARAH Vintage Knitted Salvation!

The reputation of the chunky shawl-collared cardigan has undergone a remarkable rehabilitation in recent years. Having once typified naff Seventies style, as worn by David Starsky in Starsky & Hutch, everyone from designer cashmere brands to high street chains is selling a version this winter.
However, knitwear is a vital component to the winter wardrobe so what better way to wear a piece than to choose a brand which can provide you with not only style but a vast heritage to back it up? Well thats exactly what FARAH Vintage have managed to do in their AW09 offering. The go-to brand of casualwear are currently celebrating their 90th Anniversary year and have a perfect selection of chunky shawl-collared cardigans in their Aw09 range, providing us with a credible outlet for this opinion dividing style choice.
The 'Fairfax' Shawl cardigan (pictured above) is aptly priced at £90
