The Cut

The 24/7 Edit With Elgar Johnson

From British fashion to the key brands to know right now, self-confessed street style fan Elgar Johnson cut his teeth at i-D and then at Man About Town before joining GQ Style in 2015.

"I think menswear in the UK takes more risks. Sometimes you can really feel that the collection was based on an idea that the designer had on a night out! That isn’t a negative by the way, it’s a huge positive - it's refreshing and it feels real. Maybe that’s why the UK is the capital for creative ideas in this industry."

  • Athleisure

    "Whether working out or relaxing, you can't go wrong with sweatpants and a hoodie in your off-duty kit. Team with a parka as it's always good to be ready for any weather when you're heading out for the day."

  • "My style is super casual streetwear. My staples are a good shirt, pair of jeans and a pair of white trainers, then wallabees or loafers."
  • Tailoring

    "Tailoring should be slick and sharp, so go for something that's subtle yet luxury. If you're traveling, it's good to keep things smart and casual, throwing on a neat jacket so you're dressed to impress upon arrival."

  • "Be yourself and wear the clothes, not the other way round."
  • Off Duty

    "Going out, hanging out, whatever, keep it smart, casual and loose with a laid-back edge. For weekend trips and outdoor activities, it's always best to have all the gear even if you have no idea..."

  • Elgar Johnson Edit
  • "My go-to brands are Stone Island, Ralph Lauren, Adidas, Nike, Burberry, Church’s and Prada."

Going Out

"For dinner dates or more formal going out occasions, rollnecks make a great alternative to a tie especially during the cooler months."
