It has to be said, Terry’s probably the nicest guy in the business. As Head of Business Development at personal styling service, Thread, Terry has a genuine love of independent labels and is always the first to shout about small brands. With previous stints as Buying Director at the likes of Selfridges and Mr Porter, when it comes to clothes, he knows what guys want.
Terry wears our Reversible Bomber in a new colour way for AW18 Navy and Orange. This is great worn alone but can also be zipped in to the Shell Jacket as part of 'The Works' for when the temperature drops.
What does the future hold for menswear as an industry?
Personalised advice and the continued rise of true independent brands as people search for the new and the best in class, reinforcing their own wonderful individuality.
The dissolving of traditional style codes because good gear is good gear, whatever camp you sit in. I’d like to see tailoring continue to have a renaissance - although I appreciate for some it never went away! Then generally the more technical advancements, the better - it’s all about function.
What drew you to select the Reversible Bomber Jacket from TWC’s AW18 collection?
The colour - that orange lining pops! I saw it as a modern nod to the iconic orange lining of an MA-1, one of my favourite items of clothing ever.
What’s on your Christmas list this year?
Clothing-wise, a Camoshita sweater.
Non-clothing, a Yamaha upright piano.
What’s your ultimate favourite item of clothing that you own?
My Visvim denim jacket, pound-per-wear, it's my best investment ever. As someone said to me the other day at a recent Spiritualized gig, ‘That’s jacket’s got a beautiful fade, pal’. Lovely stuff.
