The Barber of Saville Row

Pankhurst London, the luxury Savile Row barbershop and men’s grooming experts, have launched the second in their series of Sixties thriller-inspired short films to celebrate their exciting new range of luxury head-to-toe grooming products.

Shot in the south of France, the film maintains cool of the first Head-To-Toe film and relocates from the streets of Mayfair to the sophistication of the French Riviera as the central character travels across France by train and speedboat. Sleek, stylish and slick, the film encapsulates everything the Pankhurst London range represents: classic cinema, timeless style and enduring elegance.

Featuring the exclusive new range of head-to-toe grooming products from Pankhurst London ­– from superior bay rum and citrus-scented hair moulding creams, to lavish shave creams, aftershave gels and the signature Head-To-Toe Shampoo – the short represents yet another side of the Pankhurst Man, the modern Savile Row gentleman who epitomises the Pankhurst London.

Your iPad needs a case, there is no point in paying the price if you're just going to let it get scratched. But to stop that loud obnoxious casing that you can find at the Apple store, (because you really don't want to be the guy) here's a few that are a cut above the rest.

Want at Libery's £225

The Gentleman’s Corner at Place Vendôme, Paris

I was lucky enough to be in Paris the other week for a very special birthday but also had to pay homage to the most chic, elegant gentleman’s emporium in Paris, Charvet. It's said to be the world's first ever shirt shop, Charvet was founded in 1839, it has supplied bespoke shirts and haberdashery to kings, princes and heads of state worldwide 

Whilst there it was rude not to pick up a pocket square although I could have been there all day looking through fabrics and taking part in my favourite sport in Paris, people watching, although Charvet has probably the worst website ever its does make you want to make the effort to visit the store for the real experience.

 Heres a small video that Mr Porter where Mr Jean-Claude Colban, director of Charvet, discusses how best to wear the pocket square

Label Watch- Nick Bronson

While visiting a good friend of mine the other day at Liberty, I spotted an amazing collection of knitted ties. Nick Bronson launched in 1948 in Milan the woven designs which are cut and sewn on their own premises possess a modish modernity with a classic twist.

 All ties £40 at Liberty.

It's a new dawn, It's a new day..

I have been away for a while but now back in the swing of things just in time for my favourite season to begin. Although on a sadder note it is the final collection of Jill Sander for Uniqlo, but what a way to go out with a bang and a way of instantly putting a lot of Luxury brands to shame with a complete wearable day-to-day collection. My advice stock up on winter essentials to avoid disappointment. A* for J+.
