Today was a good day for the fashion savvy man. In pursuit of the London Collections that happened yesterday, a host of genius displays took centre stage today, with many a wearable outfit on show.

I believe that Maison Smalto, like so many long established menswear tailoring houses in Paris, London and Milan, can still occupy a place and address the tastes and needs of male consumers.

I feel the need, the need for SXC. Or more specifically, the Denham x Space Exploration Corporation (SXC) collaboration which sees Denham the Dutch jeanmaker fuse classic Top Gun style with astronautical garment technology to make up the Training Kit collection which will be used by SXC's Future Astronauts on the first commercial space flights.

At a time when fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris reflect the global recession conjuncture, and the overall feeling of their audiences is one of depressing apprehension, Brazilian fashion breathes much-needed fresh hair and optimism into a multi-million dollar industry.

Isn't this just the best idea? Savile Rogue use Scottish mills to produce affordable cashmere football scarves for the more discerning, prawn sandwich eating, football fan. I've ordered two already as Christmas presents as they come beautifully boxed so make perfect, easy gifts.

It's Good To Be Bad

As girls, when it comes to film, most of us have a tendency to root for the good guy. Usually the good guy from the wrong side of the tracks (Dirty Dancing, The Notebook) or with a hellish streak (Indiana Jones, Drive - possibly largely down to the casting of Ryan Gosling), but always a man who comes good by the end credits.

At One Time, Even the Humble Suit was a Newcomer...

Suit design has been on a varied and exciting journey over the past 350 years, but its conception can be attributed to one man, Charles I.

Hairless celebrities are fewer and farther in between on the sexometer (patent pending), and those who do feature tend to be cast as the rugged, manly figure.

It's not often you come across a great designer brand which is cool, wearable and affordable too but White Tent ticks all those boxes and then some. For a start, their sustainable, often androgynous separates are designed with both men and women in mind.

Last week the world got its first glimpse of toddler Harper Seven up on her feet as she accompanied her mother, the style powerhouse that is Victoria Beckham, on a visit to luxury department store Brown Thomas in Dublin. It was my first time to meet Victoria and I must admit I was impressed. I particularly enjoyed hearing her personal anecdotes about her family and their influence on her designs. For instance, did you know the caps in her latest collections are inspired from David's love of beanie hats?

The debate about the runway show as the most appropriate format to display fashion collections is certainly not a new one and proof of its contemporary impermanent status is the fact that, over the last couple of years, its demise has raised more questions than answers.

Folk is one of those understated, effortlessly cool clothing brands often spotted on trendy media types and music industry boys who want to look like they haven't tried too hard. Through combinations of intricately stitched patterns, beautiful fabrics or unusual, interesting cuts, for all it's seemingly simple design, Folk stands out because it's all about the detail.

My barber tells me I'm a lucky man. I've been blessed with more than my fair share of hair. Recently though, a somewhat awkward encounter with an old school friend, who's now bald as a coot, reminded me that not everyone is in the same boat.

Why I Started the Rock n'Roll Camden Walking Tours

We could feel that Camden was different than anything we knew in California. Southern California was hot and bright, the Santa Anna winds dried out your skin and messed up your hair. I was using SPF 50 and had my hair cut like Justine from Elastica. I didn't fit in to say the least. But when I was in Camden I felt like I finally fit in.

It's particularly interesting to note that it's younger men who are really embracing luxury fashion over older generations. Although they currently make up as small segment of the overall spend, Gen Y presents an interesting opportunity for the luxury fashion designers and houses, both in London and across the world.
