Although we might admit we have a firm handle on men’s style and are always happy to discuss elements of it we are particularly fond of, we would never claim to have an exhaustive knowledge of the world of fashion, nor, in particular, the business side of things. We have our strengths when it comes to men’s clothing, but it’s always good to hear other points of view from which we can learn. Which is precisely the thinking behind Blamo!, a long-running podcast which explores the world of fashion, from the men and women who help to create it.
Last year, Blamo! creator Mr Jeremy Kirkland invited our Content Director Mr Jeremy Langmead in for a chat. You can listen to (and read about) that, here. Since then, Mr Kirkland has had the likes of The Rake’s Mr Wei Koh and famed New York clothing designer Mr Nick Wooster in his recording booth. For his latest episode, he played host to our very own Managing Director, Mr Toby Bateman.
