The Edit... by Tomoyoshi Takada

BEAMS buyer and one of the best-dressed men in the world, Tomoyoshi Takada picks his favourite pieces from TheRake.com.

If you're a follower of sartorial menswear channels on Instagram, you will almost certainly be familiar with one Tomoyoshi Takada (@tomoyoshi_takada) of BEAMS Japan. The menswear buyer is one of the most photographed men on the 'circuit' and can be invariably found on 'best-dressed' lists season upon season. Far from wearing outrageous insta-bait outfits, Takada-san's signature style is above all classic, seamlessly blending English, Italian and Japanese sartorial traditions into one cohesive aesthetic. His look is extremely polished without ever appearing contrived, helped by his immaculate attention to detail. What we love above all else is his ability to mix silhouettes and genres: pairing wide-leg pleated trousers with a white t-shirt and denim jacket for example. At the same time, he can pull off summer separates better than even the most distinguished Italians and British formality better than Savile Row's finest. It's a pleasure then to have him select his current favourite pieces from TheRake.com...
