In the ’60s, it was referred to as the peacock revolution – when rock stars such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie redefined the look of virility with their gender-blurring wardrobes (paisley shirts, slim-fit pants, silk kimonos!).
Fast-forward to present day and a whole new generation of men is bringing back that same enthusiasm and adventurousness towards dressing up. They love to shop (a lot of them from vintage or vintage-style stores). They tend to mix-and-match garments, accessories and influences – including those traditionally considered to be from the women’s wardrobe – to create their personal look. And they’re unafraid to show it off because, if they’re anything like the 25 men here, why not?
Welcome to the new era of sartorial liberation when (to paraphrase Damon Albarn) regardless of gender, one should always be wearing something they really love.
