I’ll start by saying that my knowledge of men’s style is limited, so please do turn away if you’re seeking insights.

Despite experiencing wifi access problems at the moment (how did we ever live without it?) I’ve enjoyed catching the odd glimpse of the menswear collections which began this week in London. It’s a blossoming industry which holds the same mix of outlandish creativity and gloss as the quarterly womenswear collections.

In my eyes men under the age of 35 with an interest in style fall into four groups – dapper, preppy, urban street or hipster. Beyond 40, unless a look has been honed to perfection over years of trial and error, you’re looking at the mannequins in Debenhams for inspiration.

And of course that’s where the designs striding down the catwalks over the next couple of weeks will end up. By September the wearable and toned-down versions of the collections will be on the shelves and displays of our favourite high street and online stores. If nothing else the shows inspire the latest collar length, style of sleeve, cut of a trouser, colour, pattern and fabric.

For me though, I can’t think of a man who doesn’t look good in a decent no-fuss pair of blue jeans, sweater or t-shirt.

Quality is the key.

But then, what do I know?
