LARDINI @lardiniofficial

Classic menswear can have a tendency to be dour, po-faced and overly serious. Not so Lardini, whose Instagram presence displays a firm grasp of what the Italians call “gioia di vivere” and a dedication to combining traditional craft with a contemporary outlook.

 

BLAMO! @blamopodcast

Jeremy Kirkland’s Blamo! podcast hosts conversations with some of the most interesting men in style. Interviewees have so far included such luminaries as Alan Flusser, Scott Schuman, G. Bruce Boyer, and The Rake’s own Wei Koh. Stay updated on the latest instalments through Blamo’s Insta.

 

RAPPORT @rapport_london

This heritage-rich British firm may have been founded in 1898, and its leather-clad accessories are still crafted in the traditional manner, but the company has wisely embraced social media to reach out to a marketplace globally. Audiences from Arizona to Zambia, get your watch storage inspo here.

 

SAVILE ROW JOURNAL @savilerowjournal

Although his ‘beat’ is the home of Britain’s most traditional tailoring (and he’s followed by most of the craft’s top practitioners), Will Field’s own style readily embraces the new ‘elevated casual’ approach to sartorial dress. Browse this account for interesting insights on the trade and inspiring menswear ideas.

 

STEVEN ONOJA @stevenonoja

New York-based, Nigerian-born ‘visual storyteller’ Onoja has curated a beautiful Instagram grid, showcasing his own unique take on men’s style — think western Ralph Lauren meets African ikat with a tweedy Brit twist. World citizen chic, if you will.
