David Beckham Looks Dapper in Tom Ford!

The man that has previously worn suits by Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and Burberry now seems to have found a new favorite designer... TOM FORD!

Last night David made a very dapper appearance at The Pride of Britain Awards in a black fitted peak lapel Tom Ford suit, tie and shirt. More than likely he's also wearing shoes by the same designer, but I haven't found the exact match yet.

Tom Ford, recently won the Menswear Designer of the Year award at the CFDA Fashion Awards and its no surprise why. His suits are not for your average skinny guy, its for men with a little bit of brawn, due to the wider lapels (the trademark of any TF suit). Because of the wider lapels, you also have to avoid wearing a skinny tie (take a cue from David in the pictures above), a nice wide tie with a Windsor knot will go great with this kind of suit! Before you go rushing to buy a TF suit, be ready to drop anywhere from 5k to 7k per suit, but as I always say... money is just paper until its well spent!

Incidentally, David also wore a Tom Ford suit a recent speech he gave at the United Nations unveiling of a Digital Installation To Bring The Voices Of Young People To the UN General Assembly.

London Fashion Week in Full Force! #LFW15

London Fashion Week has started with the launch of David Beckham's new movie, Outlaws with Belstaff (which you can watch by clicking on that link). To get things kicked off, David and Belstaff held a private screening and Q&A, that David attended looking super casual... in a pair of jeans from his collaboration with Belstaff, a RRL black tee and his favorite pairs of boots (these boots that I get an email about at least once a week, is a pair he bought 15 years ago and his is most prized item in is closet, like many of you... I wish I knew where I could get pair!!!)

The following day, he accompanied Victoria to her London Fashion Week event! While she was dressed in her own line with a pair of pumps by Casadei Blade Cappa! David attended the event looking super cool in an all black ensemble by Saint Laurent (denim and jacket) and again wearing those hard to find boots!

New York Fashion Week Look Book....

It's that time of the year again! As every lover of fashion touches down in the Big Apple to attend the biggest fashion shows and parties! David Beckham is no different (especially since he needs to support his fashion designer wife Victoria).The man loves to shop and look super cool travelling, shopping, eating etc... He landed in NY wearing his favorite denims by Saint Laurent, carrying his new favorite travel bag by Givenchy and wearing a fresh pair of Adidas Superstars sneakers. The beanie he is sporting is the Basic Pigeon Beanie in Black by Staple. I haven't been able to identify the jumper yet... but hopefully one day! 

The first thing every fashionista has to do once you've settled in is go shopping! David is no different... but he just looks cooler than the rest of us. Spotted here leaving a store in SoHo, David opted to throw on a vintage Rolling Stones tee shirt from a concert in 1978 they did with Santana, Eddie Money and Peter Tosh. I've been searching for this tee for the past few days and haven't been able to locate it... its just as elusive as the Rolling Stones "dragon" tee he wore in China last year! David paired the tee with a Adidas SPRSTR beanie, Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and a pair of the newly released Adidas Tubular X Knit, which just so happens to be sold out in my size :(.

Finally the show everyone's been waiting for! David has been pictured sitting front row at all of Victoria's fashion shows, so this was no different. Looking impeccably sharp in a light brown suite by Louis Vuitton (I think it's by LV but not entirely sure), David was beaming with pride and joy seeing the success of his wife's fashion show. After the show, the family attended Balthazar, where David was pictured walking out carrying his Ray Ban Clubmaster sunglasses and a flat cap by Lock & Hatters (this guy knows how to compliment his outfits with the right accessories).

After the show, he headed over to the US Open with Anna Wintour and changed his style by loosening his shirt to take in some tennis... again manages to keep it all together after a long day....!

David Beckham's Limited Edition Outlaw Jacket! #Outlaws #Belstaff

By now many of you have either seen the trailer and/or heard about the new film, Outlaws that Belstaff produced starring David Beckham, Harvey Keitel,Cathy Moriarty and Katherine Waterson.

The sort film is a surreal film within a film starring The Stranger, a mysterious drifter and motorcycle stuntman, haunted by memories of a beautiful Trapeze Artist and hunted by a maniacal Director seeking revenge.

Outlaws was shot on location in Mexico, the film is written and directed by Geremy Jasper, produced by Belstaff Films and Legs (a Milk Media Company) and Executive Producer Liv Tyler (daughter of famous rocker Steve Tyler and fiancee of David's best mate Dave Gardner -- that't right David best mate is also named David).
To coincide with the release of the movie, Belstaff is releasing a limited edition collection named after the movie and includes apparel featured in the movie. The jacket that David is pictured wearing in the promotional pictures is called the Outlaw Jacket and is now available for pre-order on The jacket is very similar in design to the Stannard jacket, except it is lighter version and has a secondary wax treatment to increase the vintage patina! For all the bikers out there, the helmet that David is riding in is called the Gringo Helmet by Biltwell in LE Scallop White/Red colorway.

The film is being released globally on the 22nd of September 2015 during London Fashion Week!
