THE WARDROBE ITEMS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN

06.08.15

In a world of ever-changing trends and fast-moving sartorial codes a sense of permanence in menswear is a rare but much-welcomed gift. While we’re constantly inspired by the innovation each new season brings – whether that’s in the unconventional weave of a fabric or a new way of looking at an old favourite – some items maintain their relevance season after season, year after year. It is these familiar items that form the foundation of a wardrobe, the solid building blocks upon which you can develop your personal style.

From our AW15 collection, we’ve put together a list of the items that every man should own, no matter the season.

LONDON’S TOP 5 BOTTOMLESS BRUNCHES

30.07.15

When it comes to talking about trends, the topic is no longer restricted to that of clothing. Social events, exercise classes and superfoods are now amongst those genres well and truly in the spotlight (cue afternoon tea, Soul Cycle and kale). So far this year, London has welcomed the rise of the Bottomless Brunch with open arms. The concept is simple – just add endless prosecco or cocktails to the weekend pastime for an indulgent combination that feels especially on-point.

If you’re planning to test-run this new phenomenon we’ve outlined our favourite spots across the city to help you decide which bottomless brunch to head for.

SINATRA: THE MAN & HIS MUSIC

22.07.15

For Reiss it was over to London’s Palladium theatre for a press preview of Sinatra: the Man and His Music on Monday night. Celebrating the life and times of Frank Sinatra, guests were glued to the multimedia production which rattled through Frank Sinatra’s greatest hits (too many to count) at dizzying speed.

A short hop across town to The Savoy Hotel’s ballroom saw guests reflect on the night’s all-singing all-dancing spectacle during a raucous after-party, the only topic of conversation on guests’ lips; just how many classics can one man lay claim to?

See what we saw at the premiere and after-party.

FRANK SINATRA: STYLE ICON

14.07.15

A performer, an icon, a legacy, a maverick. Few men in history have or will find themselves so admired and emulated as Frank Sinatra. This year marks a century since the entertainer’s birth – a milestone which firmly underscores his status as an undisputed icon.

To celebrate the centenary of Sinatra, a new multi-media concert has arrived at the London Palladium. Running from the 10th of July to the 10th of October, Sinatra: The Man & His Music will feature all of Frank’s greatest hits, such as Fly Me To The Moon, My Way and New York, New York.

Here though, we celebrate the style of a man who has provided endless sartorial inspiration for generations of men, and one who no doubt will continue to do so for some time yet.
