bomber.

In World War I, most airplanes did not have an enclosed cockpit, so pilots had to wear something that would keep them sufficiently warm. The U.S. Army officially established the Aviation Clothing Board in September 1917 and began distributing heavy-duty leather flight jackets; with high wraparound collars, zipper closures with wind flaps, snug cuffs and waists, and some fringed and lined with fur.

The modern "bomber" or "flight" jacket is fashioned after the ma-1 -- a now-obsolete U.S. military jacket, which is mostly found in sage green. Generally, the ma-1 was made with flight silk nylon and usually had a blaze orange lining, with the specification tag in the pocket.

Without abandoning tradition and the expert craftsmanship of the military original, today's garment has been streamlined and reimagined to suit modern life and tastes while keeping key elements of volume, shape and surface.


Generally constructed of lightweight nylon bonded jersey, a modern day equivalent of the fabric used to keep pilots warm at high altitudes. With ribbed cuffs, a cinched waist, internal detailing and finished with polished gunmetal trims, the end result provides a practical outerwear piece which is understated and cool.

fashion profile - simon spiteri.

Simon Spiteri began as the fashion buyer for Liberty and then founded Anthem, in East London in 2011. 

"I felt, I guess as everyone does, growing pains that I didn't look the right way and didn't fit in. Fashion, for me, was a way of exploring a lot of creativity, and it made me feel good. And that's what clothes should do: clothes should make you feel good. It's not about fashion; it's about a lifestyle...If you feel good, you're gonna look good."

"The man makes the clothes, 100%. Clothes are nothing without the person that wears them, they're just an object."

Julien Tuan - French-born founder of Waiting for the Sun.

"Some people have style, and they're just like fake. They're definitely not who they try to pretend. When a style fits someone, it's just like, you don't have to buy style."

THE ABC OF MENS FASHION - JULIEN TUAN from Hardy Amies on Vimeo.

 

"I can't just wear what a friend of mine is wearing. It's probably good on him and nice because it's his style, but it's not mine."

fashion profile - Jack Lowe.

Jack Lowe is the founder and director of North London based store and magazine, HUH
"I think the man can make the clothes in the way that they put things together; the way that you pair stuff; the way that you put together a whole outfit. But then I also believe that you should dress for the life that you want, rather than the life that you have, so that's the clothes making the man in that sense."

THE ABC OF MENS FASHION - JACK LOWE from Hardy Amies on Vimeo.

 

"Style is timeless. If you've got style you have the ability to put stuff together no matter what era you're in, or what the particular trends are for that time. You can always tell if someone's got style, no matter what."

toning.

Toning means the harmony of colour between various garments. In its simplest form one could say it is a question of light and dark shades of the same colour being used together, as, forinstance, a fawn jacket with dark brown trousers. In general it is a question of using colours of the same group together, so that the basic or ground colour of one garment tones with that of another.

fashion profile - wesley verhoeve.

"You don't want to have a uniform on. You don't want to look like you've thought about it too much. Just think about it a little bit and then also live your life. Don't get caught up and try to only be about the outfit, you know, just live."

THE ABC OF MENS FASHION - WESLEY VERHOEVE from Hardy Amies on Vimeo.

"You are the personification of your fashion, it should be something that is unique to you. It should be something that communicates to other people what kind of guy you are."

wool.

Wool is the hair of the sheep, lamb, and some goats. It is made into cloth eithe rby spinning it into yarn which is then woven or knotted, or by felting. For most outergarments today, the demand for wool is great and there is not enough to go round. Most man-made fibres blend very well with it. In this regard, there are no substitutes for wool -- only complements.

wardrobe

It is a good thing, on occasion, to think of your clothes as a wardrobe: a single unit. You should plan to have an efficient one, rather like a tool kit for a car, to get you through any situation or emergency. A man should aim at bulding a wardrobe to help him be efficient at his job and able to enjoy his leisure.
