We’re trying to discover which city is more stylish; New York or London?
Apart from stating the obvious, both cities are flourishing cultural centers, and hubs of busy life, with underground transport, parks, attractions and numerous places to eat or party. If you don’t mind brushing shoulders with your fellow city dwellers, they are fantastic places to live or visit. (We won’t mention the ridiculous cost of living in both cities because that’s not a competition, it’s a pain in the backside.) It would seem that in many respects the New Yorker and the Londoner are very similar. Both take pride in their appearance, lap up the busy lifestyle and enjoy a drink. This being said, do the fellas dress the same?
Well, London has long been synonymous with style, fashion and a dapper look. And why wouldn’t it be, Saville Row was after all the birth place of the suit and has been styling chaps since 1731. New York has always been a stylish city, but some say it’s now fallen behind, as the popularity of London Collections: Men has elevated London’s style credentials. #NYC men’s style tends to be a more slicked back look, a clean aesthetic, not too flashy, simple but modern. The slim fit suit is very popular, fulfilling the need to be dressed for business, but still look sharp. London men’s style tends to be more experimental, with checks and tweeds layered with accentuating bold coloured accessories becoming increasingly popular.
Two brands which illustrate the differences between #LDN & #NYC men’s style are French Connection and DKNY. Founded in 1972 in the UK, French Connection is a fashion brand born out of a desire to be original, distinctive and accessible. Our exclusive collection of French Connection suits, jackets and shirts, gives you a great opportunity to dress up for the perfect #LDN look.
DKNY was founded in 1984, the brand is the perfect expression of a sleek look but at the same time staying professional. Our exclusive collection of DKNY suits are perfect for business, standing your ground in the boardroom, or achieving success with a killer interview look.
However, we’re never quick to judge. We know both cities have men who are extremely well dressed and stylish. It doesn’t matter where you live, what determines your style is your personality. But let’s not sit on the fence! Which is the more STYLISH city?
