Oliver Spencer AW18 at London Fashion Week Men's

London Fashion Week Men's, which finished earlier this week, has sadly shrunk over the last few editions and none of the usual classic (rather than fashion) menswear brands were present, with only Oliver Spencer putting on a catwalk show. E. Tautz wasn't there and none of the tailoring stalwarts like Turnbull & Asser, Gieves & Hawkes, Chester Barrie etc etc, who used to put on local presentations even if they didn't show on the catwalk, were around.

However, Oliver Spencer didn't disappoint; with the usual diverse selection of models livened up by the presence of a few women (including the lovely Catherine Hayward, Fashion Director of Esquire and Daisy Lowe, left and middle above).  The clothes are available for purchase online through Oliver Spencer’s Vero page.

The collection comprised a significant amount of corduroy, some velvet and sober but rich colours redolent of London, the theme of the show. Greys, pale blues, brown, mustard, burgundy and cream held no threats to men cautious of bright colour. Shapes were very Oliver Spencer, relaxed but essentially classic. Suiting all men, the collection would provide an excellent alternative to the usual unadventurous uniform of the older man, artificially distressed jeans, fleeces and unfortunate trainers. Here are a few of my favourites:
