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.

A Clockwork Orange

Luxury - a word we find banded around by so many "non-luxury" classified brands these days. To my mind this is a word to be used to pin-point and categorise a very specific type of production quality, expertise's and ultimately the expense paid for such items produced with these points in-mind.

French luxury brand Hermes, who could single handily define the word luxury, stand only for the highest level of quality and have been producing covetable good since it was founded way back in 1837, and in-time for Spring-Summer holiday season continue to reign supreme with the ultimate nautical watch.

Hermes introduced the Clipper watches, which were originally designed by Henri d'Origny in 1981.  Named after old three-mastered racing ships, the watches were always nautical in nature - and the newest version arrives in an eye catching 44mm case, suggests that its owner will probably spend most its his time flitting between Mediterranean ports and Caribbean hideaways. 

The masculine and sporty design is accentuated by the black free face and orange rubber strap. Inside the steal and titanium case -luxury point proven- there's an automatic chronograph Valjoux movement, which is protected at depths of up to 200 metres.

Priced at £3,700
