After 11 years, a baby and a business, Matt and Rhiannon  made it official at Como Gardens with the Dandenong Ranges as their backdrop. After a lightbulb moment and batting of eyes, the private residence of Como was where everyone celebrated. Rhiannon details the outfit choice of the Groom, Matt!

Matt and the guys wore navy blue chino’s with a linen jacket by Briggins. Despite a couple of the grandparents discussing that the boys forgot their socks, it was definitely intended to be a sockless suit!!

With the Autumn chill in the air, it seems there is no better time to delve into the dapper world of Autumn Winter collection releases from our friends at tailor Instichu.

Titled “Man In the Moment” the collection is all about the “sensory experience of the modern Australian male”. It was shot on the streets of Melbourne and it seems the collection certainly ticks all the boxes.

The collection is filled with daring and city chic styling, celebrating the every day moments. The campaign is reminiscent of city moments – such as the smell of a fresh cup of coffee, the lunchtime wander in the park on a winter day, the post work knock off, with Negroni in hand.

Offering up all the favourite winter classics – think traditional charcoal and navy, but also something a little more daring. A little more “out there” with coloured jackets of windowpane pattern and chic cream tuxedos paired with black silk bow ties. It’s fashion-forward and of the moment and designed with versatility in mind. Pieces can easily be mixed and matched, layered and personal customisation is encouraged.

Co-Founder Robin McGowan sharing, “In a sense, the campaign tracks our journey as a brand: there’s a bit of Manhattan edge, but a lot of the functionality, versatility and classicism that the Australian male wants out of their wardrobe. From formal outfits to workwear, tailored, casual and one-off statement garments. This is what gives a man the ability to live in the moment—dressing well and feeling confident without having to be too conscious of it all.”
