It's essential that You Must Create





THERE are things in life you need to do, some places you need to visit, but there is one thing you must do, You Must Create.

The British label is going from strength-to-strength and is sure to be a staple in any stylish gents wardrobe this winter.

The quality of garment is what really sees YMC

holding their own, classic lines with a casual jumper Fairisle finish against a supremely tailored finish to the jackets and shirts, it’s the perfect offset and keeps the interest always.

There are always favourties in any new releases, but with YMC its is difficult to select, the new Ivy League tops are a fabulous addition to the Preppy look that has been catching the eye for a while now.

The navy and plum cardigans look as original as the first day at Harvard, while the grey jumper with its massive M emblazoned across the chest is a nice play on the classic American sports top.

The Gloverall team up fro what can only be described as ‘ultimate’ Duffle coat in navy, will have any man worth his salt drooling. Stunning British combination is like a Caine and Baker Zulu team up, simply perfect.

Then the knitted 100 per cent Merino wool scarf in navy or plum, or the Fairisle jumpers, which comes in navy and is a great opposite the snug looking cardigan.

Oh and did I mention they do a great line in corduroys?

I was told once by an old hippie that you never have a bad day if you are wearing cords, and he is right, especially if he is talking about the YMC cords in tobacco or navy.

Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins, founders of the label, in London in 1995, have something answer for and have now become a huge and integral part of the ‘new wave’ of British labels that are not so much stealing a march as much as rearranging the world order.

All of these new labels are being championed by Stuarts, London.

Not bowing to seasonal trends, YMC is standing tall and proud, and as with anything quality, so will the wearer of it.

Time to stand up then.
