Nigel Cabourn’s utilitarian style takes us into AW17/18 at London Fashion Week Men’s. The collection, which manages to turn comfortable and practical clothing into elegance, was covered in safari and military print. The garments were durable and ready for the wear and tear of a working man, or at least one braving the streets of London this winter. Actually, the collection is appropriate for women as well, and contains 20 unisex pieces that can be worn for ski trips or otherwise.

This season, to celebrate the brand’s 30th anniversary, the brand put forth a collection of not only urban casual wear but also ski wear. Cabourn explains that while his designs are typically based in British army wear, this season, he used Sweden’s military as the base of inspiration for his ski collection.

The camouflage style makes the items perfect for stylish street wear, but the clothes do serve a purpose: they’re made to last through all sorts of inclimiat weather conditions. Hopefully there’s some ski resorts near London!

John Lobb footwear has been a staple in the London Men’s Fashion scene for many years now. Their special marbled leather look has been selling since the 1960’s, and the trend carries on for AW16, as well as shoes with suede finishes and curated sneakers. Within any collection, there’s always a favorite, and the wow item is the suede Jodhpur boot with a rubbers sole and a leather strap and buckle.

BDMOTP thinks the muted fall colors and elegant, classical styles, finished with a modern edge will appeal to all sorts of men as workwear or casual weekend footwear.

Berthold’s AW17 collection at London Fashion Week Men’s could really be described in one word: oversize. The baggy, large silhouettes that dominated the collection seem to be a coming trend for fall.

We aren’t just seeing a wide-leg pant, of course. The oversize looks are happening in a whole new way, think extra long sleeves dangling beyond fingertips and turtlenecks covering noses, and not just for men, women also walked the runway.

Long and wide overcoats and plastic or fur trenches covered boxy shirts and pants. Large, lengthy tunics cover even larger pants. In an interesting turn, Berthold calls the colors of the collection “polar white, heavy black and bruise.” While BDMOTP would probably label them black, cream and wine/oxblood, Berthold’s creativity and larger than life garments are intriguing, and we are excited to see how this baggy trend will move forward in 2017/18.

What We Wear was quite possibly the most coveted collection at London Fashion Week Men’s for AW17. Created by rapper Tinie Tempah in hopes of offering garments to a more a youthful man, the collection reflects its title: wearable clothing that men feel comfortable dressing in.

The line was cool and urban, featuring jersey sweats with drawstring waist closures and funky tee shirts. The line was full of satin shorts and collarless coats layered over blue, white and grey separates with the occasional vertical thick striped shirt for a patterned pop. Most looks were accompanied by practical sneakers featuring the brands zig-zag logo.

The collection, while simple, seemed to accomplish its goal: comfortable, practical clothing for a young, urban gentleman.

If you’re looking for wearable this season at London Fashion Week Men’s, Phoebe English Man is all about soft and comfortable fabrics and textures for the casual man. It already sits well with the ethics BDMOTP shares, meaning it was made in the UK and created from natural fibers, but it also fits a stylish man’s weekend wardrobe. While it’s not quite work wear, the black, grey and blue AW17 collection seems to fit a rainy Saturday afternoon, which conveniently, is a common occurrence in London’s fall weather.

The looks are characterized by added volume and detail, especially around the neck and chest area. Light coats with a ruched closure or textured neckline, layer upon layer, will be the signature look for the AW17 Phoebe English Man.

Nigel Cabourn’s SS17 London Collections: Men line, The Desert Rats, was inspired by the British WW2 Field Army. The three separate lines, Authentic, Lybro and Army Gym collections, while all being quite different from one another are all tied together with this common base.

The Authentic collection is the most classic, featuring traditional British style suits, of course with that desert vibes. The Lybro collection offers a more relaxed style of cotton separates and denim. The Army Gym is the most casual, featuring sweats and active wear appropriate for spring.

BDMOTP loves the soft khaki and brown stripes with pops of red and green color, and the earth tone vibe in general. It seems for SS17, we’ll be moving into a very brown and beige color palette, but don’t worry–pops of color will still keep things fresh.

Chester Barrie, famous for their impeccably tailored British suits, wows us yet again with an SS17 collection of elegant and classic menswear at London Collections: Men. Modern touches keep the iconic brand relevant, such as a shiny tinted patterned suit jacket or mixing a pale pink suit jacket with a bold pink shirt underneath, paired with a brown and blue pocket square.

Bow ties and crisp cuts keep the looks dapper, while summery, more casual outfits were also shown, like relaxed-fit linen pants with blue and white suit jackets. Colorful and patterned ties such as a bold green with polka dots add spice to the collection. Traditional pinstripes and plaids were also present, paired with bold white shoes or casual summer loafers.

No one likes to miss the Chester Barrie event, and British models David Gandy and Oliver Cheshire both made appearances. Chester Barrie isn’t just for models, though, it’s for anyone who believes themselves to be true gentleman.

Turnbull & Asser’s SS17 collection Velocity shone at London Collections: Men. Based almost entirely on blues and greys, this elegant menswear line impressed BDMOTP. When we say “shone” we meant it literally, as many of the suit jackets were silky and shiny, perfect for an elegant occasion. They were eye-catching without being garish, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one for our next wedding or event. The striped blue and grey one paired with red sneakers gives offer a real modern vibe, casual paired with dapper.

More casual looks were also incorporated into the otherwise elegant collection, like boxer shorts and light short-sleeve button ups for hot summer days.

Thomas Pink shocks us at London Collections: Men with a group of smartly dressed models, sporting suit jackets, button ups and ties…in their underwear! A very direct way of showing us that they really are focused on their shirt game, which does happen to be rather dapper for SS17. Models dangled from chairs placed up on a walls, a-la-Annie Lebowitz Vogue inspired.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 11: A model poses as part of the Thomas Pink Spring/Summer 2017 Collection during London Collections Men at ICA on June 11, 2016 in London, England. On Saturday 11 June 2016, modern British shirt maker Thomas Pink - part of the Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton group - showcased the best of its Spring/Summer '17 Business Range, to reinforce the brand's commitment to providing men with immaculately cut and finished formal shirting, five days a week.

Each shirt is focused on tailoring and detail, and comes in various cuts: Classic, Slim, Super Slim and Athletic fits and in addition, the brand also offers tailoring, separates, knitwear and accessories (and boxer shorts, as we now know).

The models also had some pink knee high stock socks, alluding to the brand name Thomas Pink, reminding us time and time again that pink is not just for the ladies.

The Belstaff SS17 line at London Collections: Men was biker style to the max. But no one ever said you couldn’t combine motorcycles and style, did they? The collection took inspiration from none other than Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie On Any Sunday. Bringing leather and riding gear and mixing it with daily, wearable looks was the name of the game.

Outside of the presentation, a stunt rider Dougie Lampkin MBE (who just so happens to be a Twelve-time Trial World Champion) showed off some bike stunts outside of Westminster Abbey. Let’s not forget he proudly sports Belstaff clothing.

Earth tones mixed with jolts of red and blue, plus the appearance of white encompassed the collection. Leather was present, but the line went beyond that and used fabrics like cotton and denim as well. Light summer knits and even an accessories collection were present, and of course, there was some camouflage in there too.
