Now that we’re enjoying warmer temperatures, our attention has turned to those glorious rooftop hotspots where we can bask in the sun’s glow whilst cradling an icily refreshing drink privy to panoramic views.
We asked our friends at Barchick to source out all of the very best sunshine spots, so that when the sun shines you’ll be able to make hay up high.
We’ve teamed up with our friends, the whisky experts Chivas Regal, to explore how to enjoy whisky whatever the time of year.
As well as launching a competition to offer the chance for a lucky winner to be the beneficiary of a bespoke Reiss suit and a Chivas Regal ‘Art of Blending’ masterclass, here we find out about the house’ signature blends and talk to Master Blender Colin Scott about the process of blending and how to best enjoy Chivas Regal.
Black aside, there surely is no other more versatile colour than blue, come spring, summer, autumn or winter the colour is perennially relevant.
OK, it may not be the most sprightly of hues, but for this spring summer, we’ve been inspired by blue in its various guises. In this week’s Menswear Diaries see how we’re wearing blue right now.
For an effortless weekend look, take your cue from the likes of Margaret Zang and Pernille, choosing a single menswear piece to lend your outfit an effortlessly stylish slant.

SS15 has seen Reiss partner with luxury travel brand, Steamline Luggage, to produce a capsule collection of wheeled suitcases.
To mark the occasion, the My Life In A Suitcase series will follow one man and his suitcase around for a summer of foreign sojourns.
To mark the launch of the REISS High Summer collection, we hosted an invite only event for some of our favourite fashion bloggers and press correspondents. The dinner took place in the idyllic Secret Garden on the roof of Shoreditch House in East London, where fairy lights and a beautifully decorated table created an Instagram-worthy setting for the most social media savvy of guests.

Straight, slim, light wash or raw? This season at Reiss we’ve endeavoured to debunk denim and ensure that wearing this menswear staple is as easy as can be.
While The Denim Guide details our fits, washes and features, this week’s Menswear Diaries will show you how to wear jeans in the most stylish possible ways.
The bucket bag is the undeniable front runner when it comes to this season’s hero accessory styles. A contemporary take on a classic, this beautiful piece of leather craftsmanship is as stylish as it is practical and will lend even the most classic looks a subtle yet directional twist.
This season, the REISS accessory designers have created a series of beautifully executed bucket bags that allow you to tap into the trend in the most sophisticated way. These on-point pieces are designed and created completely in-house, using supple leather and high-shine metal hardware for a luxe combination. Not sure how to wear it? We’ve composed three very different outfits to help to set the tone.
It’s an indisputable fact. Jack Purcell sneakers can count themselves amongst the world’s most iconic shoe designs. And, as if their decades of popularity weren’t testament enough, you’ll only need to glance at the feet of some of the world’s most stylish men for further affirmation.
Loved for their ability to be both cool and core, the shoe’s simple design is doubtless the key to enduring popularity. For SS15 the iconic shoe arrives at Reiss in brand new colourways, fabrications and in the guise of the updated ‘Signature‘ style.
So, we headed to Converse’ London offices for a conversation with brand expert Gavin Campbell, who here waxes lyrical about everything Jack Purcell.
There’s no denying it, we can rely on prints to re-occur as a key spring trend year on year, injecting colour and pattern into our previously neutral winter wardrobes. Each of the REISS designs is produced in-house by our talented team who put a personal spin on every exclusive collection.
To find out more, we caught up with womenswear designer Jennifer Clemson who explained the process behind the coveted Valentine Flower print that’s just launched online and in store.
As we enter a brand new month, there are plenty of reasons to be cheerful. There’s the increasing light, the upcoming Bank Holidays, and the promise of a being able to bare just a fraction more skin in SS15′s sun-ready clothing.
In short April is brimming with optimism. Here are our visual inspirations for the month ahead.
Easter bank holiday is fast approaching and as a traditionally family-orientated weekend, it’s effortless, easy-to-wear style that we’ll be turning to. If you’re planning to host at home, it’s likely that your outfit will be as much in the spotlight as your hospitality, so we’ve pulled together a rough guide on what to wear when you’re entertaining.
This season marks Reiss’ very first collaboration with Steamline Luggage, and to celebrate the partnership, we asked menswear influencer, model and blogger Chris Millington to show us just how useful (as well as undeniably slick) the Gallivant wheeled black suitcase really is.
Throughout SS15 Chris will be taking his monogrammed suitcase along with him on his summer travels. But, before he embarks upon a season in foreign climes we join him in his native Scotland as he shows us how to pack for travels ahead.
While autumn and winter may have their formal accessories, scarves and dress shoes, so too do spring and summer have their own defining accessories.
And, what better way to make the most of them than by investing early and discovering the season’s most important designs? In this week’s Menswear Diaries, we introduce the shoes and accessory styles that you should know for SS15.
