London Collections: Street Style




January 9th 2015 was the start Fashion Month and as always it first takes us to London. The streets are soon flooded with the fashion obsessed and street style photographers capture their looks from morning to night. With each fashion show or fashion event, they don a new look before they hit the streets again.

We won’t be looking at what went down the runways, we will be looking at the trends they wore at the London Collections: Men’s.



England is known for their exceptional outwear and topcoats are at the top of the lists for British men this year. Tartan, Army Green, and Gray are just a few of the many different kinds of topcoats that were worn. Whether it was with a suit underneath, t-shirts, or cable knit sweaters it was the popular choice. Pictured below, David Gandy wears it over his shoulders for a more dramatic look. Other options were to pick a print or saturated color in camel, green, or maroon.




Street style photographers took many photos of guys in fedoras. All kinds of fedoras were worn. Wide brimmed fedoras were the popular choice that donned many heads. The more eccentric decided to wear the Vivienne Westwood Fedora, aka the Pharrell hat.





Black, Gray, Navy, Browns and Tans were the popular colors. Whether it was full monochromatic or a mixture of neutral colors. The go to all black look or camel coats were often scene on the men of the London Collections. If they were wearing a suit in a neutral, they opted to wear a plain shirt underneath to let the suit’s texture or pattern really stand out.


Lined Patterns

Prince of Wales Check, Tartan, Windowpane, and Pinstripes were the trend patterns that filled the streets. Where else would you find more men in classic patterns? England is home to Savile Row. Classic men’s tailoring and patterns dominate this genre of style. The pattern was mostly worn as a scarf, blazer, suit, pants, or on a coat.

Head turner!

This is my 2nd Ella Bing wooden tie and it again has surpassed my expectations. The gift set to include cuff links was an incredible value to boot. Every time I wear this collection, I have friends, colleagues, and students simply marvel and the beautiful, intricate, and classy design of these bow ties. These are a MUST have for the well-heeled gentlemen.

Great Service For A Great Tie

The service from Ella Bing was so great! Not only was the tie fantastic it came packaged in a cigar box. His cool is that?

Classic and unique

Very classic looking glasses with a modern edge and touch. The bands are different and with the wood and silver it makes them very versatile. I have worn them with a suit, shirt and jeans and to the pool. Works in all environments.


Clark was knowledgeable of the items in the store. A lot of the items are locally made , and the music was off the hook , the hats were beautiful . Nice atmosphere.
