As always, the recent London Collections: Men event offered an insight into what we’ll all be clamouring after come next year. But just as important as dissecting what went down the runway is taking a look at what the menswear elite chose to wear off of it.
With this in mind, we bring you our ten favourite street style looks from the event, in the hope of inspiring some of your own outfits this season.
Does this guy ever not look dapper?
International male model and LC:M ambassador David Gandy proved that he doesn’t have to wear a suit to look elegant, with this sophisticated suede bomber jacket and white T-shirt combination one of our favourite looks from the entire weekend.
Also embracing suede outerwear (a key trend both on and off the runway) was YouTube star and one of our 5 Best-Dressed Men In Fashion, Jim Chapman, who sported a deep tan jacket in a slightly more casual yet equally chic way.
The 27-year-old paired his version with an all-black ensemble and chunky brogues, leaving his statement piece to do all the talking.
Denim has gone deluxe this summer, with jean jackets becoming a coveted piece for men of all ages.
This fashionable gent hits all the right notes with his dark wash version, pairing it with well-cut neutral chinos, a sharp white shirt and double monks (worn sockless) for a look that effortlessly straddles the line between casual and formal.
The cuff peeking out of the jacket is a nice touch that shows he is a man that pays attention to the details.
Another LC:M ambassador in our line-up, Tinie Tempah is always on top form when it comes to style.
The London-born rapper embraced the dressed-down tailoring trend at this season’s LC:M, matching a classic navy blue suit with a pair of minimal grey leather trainers.
Add a plain T-shirt and a pair of dark sunglasses into the mix and you’ve got a slick, contemporary ensemble that is ideal for smart-casual occasions.
It’s official: the double-breasted suit is back.
For summer we’re leaning towards soft-coloured, lightweight options for a slightly more relaxed feel, with the double-button front bringing a retro touch to contemporary tailoring.
Pair it with a plain T-shirt and classic brown leather shoes like this fashion-forward fellow for a modern take on an old-school aesthetic.
This look is urban simplicity at its finest.
The monochrome palette, minimal branding and clean silhouette keep this ensemble feeling luxe and modern, while subtle streetwear influences come through in the baseball cap and black hi-tops.
Yet another suede jacket, this time courtesy of British model Oliver Cheshire.
Cheshire anchored his bright yellow version with pared-back staples – light grey trousers, brown brogues and a crisp white shirt – allowing it to take centre stage.
Note the Cuban collar on the shirt and lack of a belt – two small details that make all the difference.
Graphic prints were a key trend at LC:M, with labels from Christopher Raeburn to Burberry Prorsum sending a wide array of motifs down the runways.
This stylish guy clearly got the memo early, pairing this eye-catching sweatshirt with relaxed trousers and a luxe baseball cap for an urban look with an artistic edge.
These striking striped trousers captured the attention of every street style photographer at the event.
This relaxed ensemble works perfectly thanks to the plain black Henley and suave slippers, which keep the look grounded and let the legwear speak for itself.
Among the sharp suits and streetwear ensembles we’ve come to expect from LC:M we spotted this modern utilitarian look, with practical workwear pieces cleverly styled to create an individual outfit with real character.
It’s the finer details that make this outfit: the relaxed-leg selvedge jeans have been given a healthy turn-up, the rugged motorcycle jacket has been left slightly open and belted nonchalantly across the waist, an extra shirt button has been left undone, while the neckerchief brings interest and personality.
