PERMANENT STYLE // SATOKI KAWAI OF SARTORIA CRESENT: BESPOKE TAILOR, MILAN
(From February 17th, 2017)
Creare - to create
Sentire - to feel
For Japanese tailor Satoki Kawai, these are the two most important things about making a piece of clothing - and are the reason his tailoring house combines the two in its portmanteau of a name, 'Sartoria Cresent'.

GENTLEMAN'S GAZETTE // HOW TO GET THE BEST HAIRCUT FOR YOUR FACESHAPE
(From November 7th, 2016)
In this guide, we’re going to talk about how to choose the best hair style for your face shape.
Haircuts for various face shapes
We’ve all suffered from bad haircuts. Just look at the 80’s. Most men will look at a celebrity they admire and ask the stylist or barber to recreate the cut on their head. Unfortunately, it’s not always this simple. Just because you liked Tom Cruise’s hair in Top Gun, doesn’t mean it will look good on you.
The way a haircut looks depends on a few factors:
- Your hair type
- The way your hair grows
- The shape of your face
Today, we’re going to focus on the shape of your face and how it impacts your hair. READ MORE.

IMAGE GRANTED // MEASURING UP TO MADE TO MEASURE - STEED BESPOKE
(From August 10th, 2016)It may seem contradictory for an established Savile Row tailor to offer anything other than it’s bespoke offerings. After all, this is the home of handmade tailoring at its finest, but this is just what the team at Steed does. While Steed prides itself on their bespoke service, it is not lost on Edwin and Matthew that not every client is prepared for the level of complexity, time and cold hard cash it takes to commission a bespoke suit. Therefore, Steed offers a made-to-measure (MTM) collection in which the process and the product are of the highest quality possible but without the lead time and at a fraction of the cost of a bespoke garment. Matthew speaks passionately about Steed’s MTM philosophy and why he isn’t afraid to promote it alongside their bespoke service. READ MORE.
