STYLE EDIT: DAN ROOKWOOD

09.02.13

As you can see from our first London Lives menswear feature, Dan Rookwood knows a thing or two about great style. The Men's Health style director describes himself as "on-brand" for the magazine, and is rarely seen not wearing a sharply tailored suit. We decided to take a closer look at Roodwood's style, focusing on the pieces he donned in the feature.

On the Road

Dan's first look in the shoot is all about confidence, which perfectly epitomises the writer's style. The Naples three-piece suit in navy exudes sartorial elegance with a bold touch and looks great teamed with a pair of tan shoes such as Reuben. Of course, the vintage Mercedes from the Classic Car Club helps add an extra dash of cool to the look...

 Tea for Two

When you have as hectic a schedule as Dan Rookwood's, it's important to take time out to enjoy afternoon tea at somewhere like Warren House in Kingston. Of course, that's not to say you have to dress down. Rookwood still chooses to reach for an elegant suit such as Amalfi, complete with a textured tie and printed pocket square.

Casual Luxury

One of the things Rookwood loves about British style, is how we manage to combine luxe tailoring with casual pieces to create the perfect contrast. This is exactly what the style director has done with this look, pairing a preppy polo and chinos with a tailored blazer and pocket square.

Grey Matter

A fan of independent cafés and coffee shops, it's no wonder Dan Rookwood enjoys spending his Saturdays at Petersham Nurseries in Richmond. It's also no wonder he takes an independent approach to the way he dresses, teaming a three-piece suit jacket and waistcoat with a shirt without a tie and casual chinos.
