The world of men's formalwear has changed so much over recent years, with relaxed tailoring becoming more popular and relevant to a modern-day man's lifestyle. Even though I am a great believer in not being dictated to by on-trend moments in a season, I’m pleased the men's formalwear landscape is evolving to suit more contemporary needs.
However, I also strongly believe that over 200 years of formalwear heritage shouldn’t disappear overnight. With sustainability at the forefront of everyone’s mind, the need to invest in good-quality, timeless garments is stronger than ever before. Pieces need to provide maximum versatility to become the bedrock of an evergreen wardrobe.
P. Johnson is a new brand blazing a trail as the first established luxury tailoring brand from Australia. Patrick Johnson combines traditional Italian craftsmanship with Australian irreverence, and he’s found the secret to scrubbing up in an age when the classic suit, shirt and tie is less relevant. His understated, elegant, effortless, comfortable style is how a modern gent wants and needs to dress for an ever-evolving world. Alongside the signature soft tailoring is a range of elegant accessories and leisurewear, and a timelessly stylish range of ready-to-wear pieces made in limited numbers. P Johnson has boutiques across Sydney, Melbourne, London and New York. For those, like me, who are leaving their 30s behind soon and love to look elegant but appropriate, P. Johnson will be your 2021 best mate.
