Harvey Nic picks

Harvey Nic picks

When it comes to clothes shopping, men tend to be a lot more regimented than women. Generally speaking, if a man wants to buy a blue shirt, he will go to one shop. The adequate blue shirt in the correct size will be selected off the first rack. He will buy it and that’s the job done.

With this in mind, Harvey Nichols held an ever so manly evening of men’s fashion and grooming to tease out the fashionista within. The evening combined all things macho such as poker lessons from Manchester235, Boutique pole dancers, shoe-shining and man-sized burgers. There was even a fork-bending magician on hand to entertain the crowds. After all, it takes the burly strength of a man to bend a fork.

Manicures, facials and eyebrow shaping were available from Task and Urban Retreat. Surprisingly, or maybe not, it was the beauty treatments that had the waiting list. And we all know why this is. Deep down underneath the blasé exterior, men genuinely care about the way they look.

To save the tedious task of trawling around looking for something more than a blue shirt, we’ve picked the best brands from Harvey Nichols menswear collection.

Artful Dodger
Has been billed as a fashion brand with a singular mind and purpose- to provide clothing for those set on causing mischief and mayhem. Not your standard basics, but pieces full of quirky details that will only come apparent in the fullness of time. Trim details, complex prints and artfully stitched embroideries are the result of hours and days of reckless thought and careful application.

Fred Perry Blank Canvas
Reinvents Fred Perry classics by customising, over printing and de-constructing. The 'Blank Canvas' project is unique and illustrates Fred Perry's commitment to support both new and established design talent. The brand has invited cutting-edge, British based designers to develop a capsule range that combines their own, distinctive creative style with classic Fred Perry product.

Just Another Rich Kid
Known for the coolest fitted tees. This summer sees one of a kind hand drawn graphics with the design team’s interpretations of ‘sex, money and violence’ Mix in surf/skate Culture, Black Sabbath Lyrics and early 80s punk rock flyers and you are half way there.

Velvet
Is a collection inspired by the Southern Californian attitude: easy, confident and independent. With a focus on high quality fabrics and great colours, Velvet offers men basics with a subtle twist.
