Nothing beats a man who looks dapper in a properly tailored suit. He automatically looks focused and put together than anyone else in the room. When we think of luxurious, fine and well fitted suits, our minds take us as far as Tom Ford or Giorgio Armani. We always forget to celebrate or showcase the underdog. So from time to time, I enjoy finding out about brands that are far from high street luxury yet they deliver equal quality.
Albert 1941 is a menswear brand founded in East London by Gabriel Akinosho.
It was founded back in 2008, but was officially formed in 2016. The vision behind the brand was to go against fashion and its’ trends and to conquer classic styles with a modern twist. A purchase from the Albert brand will stand the test of time and outlast all trends.
This is a fact that I found particularly interesting, fashion has extended itself to create looks that are both classy and trendy. Today male fashion is not exactly what it used to be thirty years ago. Denim and khaki have taken over. Then we have the male fashion that celebrates the fierce man; not afraid to show off his wilder side in terms of fashion. There was a time when a man wore a dress coat for each and every occasion. Change is good but classics will never run out of style.
The Albert 1941 brand includes a line of handmade tuxedos and handmade shoes all that are carefully thought out and designed in the most articulate manner. This is a brand that has really focused on delivering quality with each item you purchase. Gabriel has had the privilege of travelling the world and educating himself while being heavily influenced by each continent. This can be clearly seen through his designs.
It’s always important to look good in order to feel good, so it comes as no surprise that the story behind the Albert 1941 brand brought to life clothes that don’t change who you are but you can change everything just by the way you feel in them.
