The Handbook

In Conversation With Matthew Zorpas

Anatomy Of Style - Matthew Zorpas Jon Gorrigan

"I’m taking the stereotypical definition of a British gentleman further," explains Matthew Zorpas, aka The Gentleman Blogger. "I’m saying: 'Okay, the perfect gentleman is well travelled, he’s a modern guy, he has very respectful views on equality, on religion, and he’s not completely defined by a suit.'" A man who practices what he preaches, Matthew takes dapper dressing to new levels and, with each Instagram post, reinforces what it is to be a modern gentleman. Here, as part of Anatomy Of Style, he goes into more detail…

  • First Things First

    "The white shirt is definitely my number one building block. It’s where I start every single outfit. Navy suits, too – they’re something that I find easy and comfortable, and they just need accessorising to make them look different every single day."

  • "I’d say my style is classic, but that’s something I’m challenging by combining what’s on the catwalk with heritage brands, quality and knowledge."

"I think understanding the rules of style is one thing, but the beauty of it is that we have options, which is something that previous generations didn’t have."

"I travel twice a week, so I’m nowhere and everywhere at the same time. I always pack three standard outfits, all of them based around the white shirt: a navy suit, definitely a tuxedo, and one casual, off-duty look."

  • "Smell is something gentlemen tend to forget, but I have my favourite Monday fragrance, my favourite dinner fragrance... It’s something I’m constantly experiencing."

Anatomy Of Style

As part of our Anatomy Of Style menswear focus, Matthew was invited to come together with Nick Wooster, Olof Nithenius and Fredrik Risvik in a dapper discussion hosted by Esquire Style Director Teo van den Broeke, each of the four key voices in menswear today sharing their insights and individual takes on style DNA.
