Grey Fox features in 'The Grey Fox Issue' - Mr Porter Journal

I'd like to thank Mr Porter for featuring Grey Fox in today's Mr Porter Journal, ('The Grey Fox Issue'). In doing so they are recognising that the older man can be interested in style and that he has commercial clout and influence in the fashion world. For me this is a significant development as it confirms that the aims of this blog are slowly bearing fruit. See The Mr Porter Journal.


We had great fun on the shoot, in a huge, shabby-grand, Georgian house in Belgrave Square, London. The team was outstanding, but I'd like in particular to thank the photographer, Cat Garcia, for her wonderful work. The stylist, Scott Stephenson, allowed me to select the clothes from Mr Porter's astonishing collections; there is an emphasis on some favourite British brands. It was fun trying things I hadn't worn before.


While the use of the description 'cult' is a gross exaggeration, I'm pleased that Grey Fox has been recognised. This is acknowledgement that older men can be the specific target of fashion marketing - and that's one of the aims of this blog.

Many thanks also to the many of you who support Grey Fox, getting in touch with comments, ideas and suggestions; you have little idea how much I appreciate it: greyfoxblogATgmailDOTcom

I have to say as a regular at Mr Porter myself I was really pleased to see your edition of the journal. So much to agree with, particularly the importance of making an effort and physique, and some to disagree with. But that is the point us older guys need not be clones in either dress or attitude. If grey style about anything it is about a continued engagement and enjoyment of life.
Bravo

Lovely to see your work being recognised and in such a great way. The photos are stunning... my favourite is "casual fox" looking effortlessly cool in jeans and a knit!

Thank you so much. Inevitably with an interview a few points get lost in translation, but the general points came across as I would have hoped. Thank you for your kind comments.
