The Problem With Menswear is . . .


The problem with menswear is it’s utterly boring on the whole, one on the reasons I hired Harry The Hippo is that this needs to change. With LCM just round the corner it’s the perfect time for a call to action.

Guy’s embrace who you are, find your inner style, build a wardrobe that truly is a reflection of who you are. Don’t play safe, don’t settle for the t-shirt at the top of the pile or the jeans on the bedroom floor, don’t just thing a shirt is for the 9-5 or for a night out with the lads in a club.

There is something out there for you, look at the British style icons and young men heading to that title we have and how different they are, Jonny Rotten,Tinie Tempah, Michael Caine, Elton John, Idris Elba, Jarvis Cocker, Alex Turner, and my hero David Bowie to name just a few, so please enjoy the gallery and take some inspiration, lets make fashion a part of who we are, then we might get a 5 day fashion week, which I’ll love even if my feet won’t.

About Ross Pollard

Since starting writing on my 31st birthday in 2011 I have held a number of positions at magazines and websites as well as regularly producing articles for numerous publications alongside contributing to TV & radio shows as a freelance fashion journalist including Hoxton Radio & Fashion One TV. Alongside writing, I have worked in other industries helping to design & grow digital platforms, develop businesses and support operations practices. This experience has proved invaluable in building an understanding of how businesses work, and the landscape in which retail, B2B commerce and other commercial operations develop. Knowledge of commercial interests has helped shape my fashion industry insights beyond critiquing of garments

  1. I love Tinie Tempah’s style. There is nothing better than a man who’s stylish and handsome. Men should really start pushing the envelope and exploring different styles and trends. What’s the worst that can happen?…Fashion faux pas turn people into icons – learn from your mistakes
