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.

PETROU\MAN FW 2010-11 Collection

The seasonal return of PETROU/MAN appeared on our radar whilst in New York for Fashion Week - a collection designed by Nicholas Petrou and styled by Robbie Spencer (menswear editor at Dazed & Confused), was presented at Drive Studios. 

The collection, a more tonal and sophomore affair, ratained the technical tailored sports-lux feel we have come to love with PATROU, whilst improving on construction and keeping inline a scattering of signature prints - giving a new take to tie-dye and even hand dyed tartan.

Unusual fabrics, hand detailing in the embroidered shirts and the light use of fur made for a nomad inspired collection - we especially enjoyed the head pieces and customised footwear. This is a collection which seems to be pushed further in the right direction with each passing season - a talent is before us Gentry readers so sit up and take note.
