Jamie Ferguson is one of the most charming, celestial and likeable photographers in menswear. He is often seen lurking on the ground in the city of Florence at Pitti Uomo, on the streets of New York or flitting from from tailor to tailor in London’s Savile Row, often turning up unannounced for a friendly chat. It is in these three cities that he consistently captures an instant in time that epitomises genuine menswear style. He also recently became an author, with his book This Guy - a fascinating collection of his photographs celebrating modern menswear. It is certainly worth picking up a copy, if you can get your mitts on one.
Despite being one of menswear’s most sought-after photographers, he is also regularly snapped in front of the camera, which is down to his unique, bordering on idiosyncratic approach to dressing. As dress codes have become less polarised Jamie has been leading the way in opening up the minds of traditionalists, that there is innumerable ways to sport an impeccably tailored suit with pizzazz and panache, without losing its provenance and originality.
