My London Fashion Week Mens: Day 1

Craig of That Dapper Chap takes us around the shows and presentations on day one of this seasons London Fashion Week Men's

It doesn't seem six months ago since I attended the last London Fashion Week Men's (known previously at London Collections: Men) they say time flies when you're having fun right!

So, on a grey and traditionally wet British Friday we made our way to 180 The Strand, the hub for the event, and began a hectic round of shows and presentations. Once again there were some amazing designers to see, ranging from the well known and well established to new and up and coming designers for whom this was their first outing.

The White Stuff SS17 Press Day

Craig of That Dapper Chap takes us around the White Stuff SS17 Press Day and shares some of the new styles coming our way next season

Held at the Oui 2 rooms in central London this was the very first press day that White Stuff have held. I have attended other events with the brand, but press days is a new venture for them. I'm calling it a success, so lets hope we get to see more of them!

Shirting is strong again for SS17

As always White Stuff have pulled together a very nice collection of menswear for us. Those additional and sometimes quirky additions continue to make an appearance with contrasting threads and linings, different coloured buttons and great prints.

A city break in Reykjavik

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares his experience of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city and offers his top tips for a successful stay.

If you want to see the Northern lights, sip hot chocolate in a quaint cafe while you watch the snow tumble silently from the sky, and dip your toes on the hot springs of the Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik might just be the place for you.

Some friends and I recently spent five days in this beautiful city, we sampled the local delicacies, shopped in the pretty boutiques and marvelled at the chocolate box architecture. Here, I not only share what I wore on my most recent city break, but I'll also give you all the hints and tips that you'll need when you travel to Iceland's capital city.

About Reykjavik

With a population of only 203,000, Reykjavik is one of the worlds smallest capital cities, and is a great choice for a bustle free break. No crowds, no jostling in the street, just a relaxed and friendly atmosphere greets you, and you can be there in around three hours from London.

Menswear by Steel & jelly

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares his look from the range of menswear from Steel & Jelly.

Meet Steel & Jelly

While this is the first time I've written about Steel & Jelly, it's not the first time I've worn their clothing. While they're not a heritage brand, they were established in 2004, so they've been around for a few years now and they clearly know what they're doing.

A Father & Son brand, they like to create pieces that are both traditional and contemporary in design, catering to the modern gentleman. They're passionate about British design and attention to detail, often adding a contrasting button or a surprise flash of pattern inside a shirt collar.

With a range of great blazers, shirts, shoes and accessories, they have a wide selection to choose from, and I recommend a look.
