Silvio Fiorello showed a wild collection of silk prints on ties, bowties and shirts for SS17. The collection at Milan Uomo Fashion Week, which just so happened to honor their 30th anniversary, was bold, bright and shiny.

The accessories were printed with intricate paisleys and funky prints. The concept I see for these particular items is giving personality to an otherwise tame suit or outfit. Why not at a bit of pizzazz to your black suit with a printed ladybug pocket square?

But don’t let these loud colors and prints fool you as the collection is very high-end. Regardless of the colorful prints and patterns, this silk is perfection. One tie in particular even had real silver threads woven into it.

Decidedly Italian, Fiorello brings a little bit of fun to the table. Just enough to spice up your outfit, but not so you much you won’t be taken seriously as a gentleman.

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.

The Berthold SS17 collection at London Collections: Men was all about geometrics. Clean, straight lines and bold colors among black and white. Sharp, strong, minimalist looks that played with asymmetrical lines and volume were present in most of the looks.

Different styles and cuts of jackets were present in many of the looks as well, giving men options for spring outerwear. Long to medium trenches, zippers, blazer-style closures or shorter jackets were all present. The most important take-away is that the jacket for SS17 is ever-present.

The Qasimi SS17 collection was all about fabric and layers. In each varying color scheme, a minimalist look, then something a bit more substantial followed by baggy pants and layers on top, including light coats, offering up various trends to mix and match.

The line was inspired by the Gulf War and politics, and we do see this reflected in the desert colors of the garments. BDMOTP especially liked the long jackets and trenches layered over the baggier, lighter garments.

This collection is all about savoring the key pieces and incorporating them into your wardrobe.

Traveling Brits at Private White V.C. for SS17.

As usual, Private White V.C. showed a cool collection of contemporary, casual menswear, complete with a visit from British model David Gandy and an appearance from the brand spokesperson spokespuppy, the adorable Private White dog.

We love these clothes and this dog.

The SS17 collection was focused on the concept of a traveling gentleman: one that wants to look dapper while being comfortable and of course, using fabrics that travel and wash well for the ultimate convenience. A small new capsule collection, Ventile, included items like bags and hats, cashmere sweaters and jersey knits.

BDMOTP especially loved the lightness and practicality of the whole collection. With many being avid travelers this day in age, garments which one can look casual yet stylish in, that are lightweight and soft are absolutely ideal, especially for spring and summer weather.

CMMN SWDN presents Market Rodeo SS17, inspired by a recent trip the two designers took to Morocco. The browns, honey and beige tones used represent the exotic desert air and spices. The mix of stripes and solids, plaids and tones gives off the feel of a chaotic, busy whirlwind, not unlike a day at the market in Morocco.

The collection seems to also have a very vintage feel, a distinct 70’s glow about it, and slim models worked the leather jackets and mesh shirts like none other.
