There’s nothing like a man with a true sense of style. Check out these great looks that I captured during London Fashion Week for inspiration. My favorites were outside the Nicole Farhi and Burberry Prorsum shows.

This guy sure knows how to pull off Nordic flannel tights!

James Dean look will NEVER get old

Suspenders, literal bows, and thick glasses.. cool.

Fur, white frames, and mixing brown tones

Get the classy-casual look by pairing a blazer with trousers

And again..

Light washed jeans
