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.

Useful Wastage

Though the sentiments behind new art-eco-fashion brand ISSI are truly worthy we cannot accept that ‘waste not, want not’ is a maxim that necessarily rings true. Why? Well, ISSI’s products might all be made from waste but we really, really want them.  

The launch collection has been produced in collaboration with a series of award-winning contemporary visual artists. The ‘Volcano’ Messenger bag £260 and Kitbag (above £270) by artist Paul Morrison are made from decommissioned fire-hose and reclaimed parachute silk. Fifty per cent of profits from the ISSI range go back into charities associated with waste.

My favorite is the Kit Bag priced which you can buy online here or find the collection at Selfridges from 4 May.
