Sharply Groomed in London
“Mad Men,” sigh, is over, but we’re still suckers for sharply-groomed guys. So, hurray! Just in time to supply a much needed dose of Don Draper come these slick fellows from London’s Autumn/Winter Richard James Chains + Cranes collection, courtesy of Daniel Jordan, GO24•7 European Art Director.

In actuality, it wasn’t 1960s ad men that inspired this collection, according to Daniel. “This collection was inspired by the ‘30s East End docks in London where the diverse world of chic, clean-lined cruise liners and enormous, jam-packed container ships met as one,” he explains. “The street-savvy East-Enders who worked there were rough and ready but still wanted to look pristine with immaculate looking hair. It’s a wearable, dirty/clean finish.”
