Simon Crompton Permanent Style

We continue our popular series of “What I have on me” and the first from the new year’s stilskribenten and journalist Simon Crompton. Most of you probably know him from the eminent style blog Permanent Style, which for 10 years has given us inspiration, reviews and reflections regarding male fashion.

Introduction

My name is Simon Crompton. I am a British journalist and writes about luxury and handmade fashion, ranging from tailored clothes to jewelry. I write for newspapers such as The Telegraph, Mr Porter, The Rake , andHow to Spend It on a regular basis. I have also published four books, two of which are actually in years; The Finest Menswear in the World and theBest of British-The Stories Behind Britain’s Iconic Brands.

Mainly, I am perhaps known as the founder of Permanent Style, which is one of the first fashion blogs, as I pushed in nine years and that has got to be one of the most popular in the world. This page has in recent years expanded to include collaborations with clothing manufacturers, events and publications.

Comment to the upholstery

My style has always been pretty classic. The important thing for me is to dress simply but good. The focus is on fit and materials rather than color and pattern. If a passerby considers you to be well dressed without exactly being able to put my finger on why, then you have succeeded. This is something that develops over time. Style is a blend of taste and habit.

On these pictures do I prepare our tailor shop-symposium, an event we held in Florence during Pitti Uomo now last summer. We gathered here the world’s foremost tailors in the same place for the first time to discuss the industry, their customers and the future of tailor-made fashion.

It was a hot and humid evening but the event required a certain formality in dress code. For this reason I wore a light hopsackkavaj, entirely without lining and stitched by Napoliskräddaren Elijah Caliendo. Thin pants in silk/cotton and the so-called Belgian loafers on their feet. The relatively monotonous appearance of the outfit, with a sharp contrast by simple white silk tie and handkerchief, makes the whole pretty slick and elegant.
