British tailor and designer Ozwald Boateng is one of my favorite men on the planet. Aside from designing his namesake collection housed on Savile Row in London, and having a stint at Givenchy, Boateng is one of my favorites because he has impeccable personal style. His personal style upholds the precision cut silhouettes he designs with an almost carefree bravado (if that even makes sense, makes sense to me!). He uses luxe materials in fearless colors, which are always commendable in menswear in my book.
In 2012 he released the film “A Man’s Story” which documents the evolution of his brand as well as his personal life over a series of years. We get an inside peek into his daily life; the time in the workroom, his relationship with his family, his world travels and more. He is quite an inspirational dresser! I don’t want to give too much away, but I highly recommend this film as the viewer gets a a first-hand look at the life of a man in fashion. Trailer below.
