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.

Alexander McQueen

Mr Gentry is not a place for tragic news stories, but today we all heard the tragic news that British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead after taking his own life. 

It begs the question of how fragile we are, and how our industry is so demanding, exhilarating and yet so damming pressures of each season to put out a collection to the gaze of the world's media whilst putting yourself on the line too - we are surrounded by a need for immense change and pushed for drastic finales.

At only 40 years old Lee McQueen was a true original - an irreplaceable visionary creative that the world will be miss, and continue to wonder what would have come next.
