Velsvoir x Library – Tawa Tanye

velsvoir library crossies blog

Luxury accessory label Velsvoir have made some most dapper uniforms for the staff at new private members club Library in London, and recently had a superb soiree to celebrate, inviting the best-dressed gentlemen London had to offer. Flying the flag for the fabulous Velsvoir cross-braces is Mr ‘My-outfit-is-better-than-yours’ himself, Tawa Tanye. Let’s not focus too much on his hair, because I would simply get lost in praising superlatives. Sufficient to say, it is awesome. So let’s focus on his outfit, which is FANtastic. Braces aside, I love the neck-tie lusciousness, and the texture of his jacket, and the superbness of the shiny brogues. Considering the occasion, location (Library), the fact that it was at the closing of LFW, and the type of gentlemen the Timol brothers consider friends and aquintances, it was a sartorial candy-store of an evening to be sure, yet this man stood out by a mile. *Applause*

LWF Day 2 – Deigh Alexander

This is the final street-style illustration from London Fashion Week. It was all over long ago, yet I’ve been clinging on via coloured pencils and pens, to the fabulous richness and sumptuousness of it all. And what an outfit to sign it all off with! Few men properly rock the socks in pink, and even fewer look this sh*t hot in a pink suit. For those who are wondering why it looks so amazing, take a few notes: Apart from having a great physique, it makes a huge difference how your suit is tailored. Note the slim fit, the pocket details, the narrow sleeves and the tapered not too short/not too long trousers. Men’s style is sometimes quite subtle, and what sets it apart from mediocre will all be in the details, so if you want to look sharp you gotta get them right. So take a little bow, or at least a little nod from where your sitting, to Mr Deigh Alexander Smith; Model agency founder, model, photographer, blogger. Granted, he should know a few things about looking good, and he certainly makes a regular fantastic effort. Don’t be surprised to see a full feature on him some day soon! In the meantime, follow him on instagram here, and see his street-style snaps here. xx
