Linen Jacket by Uniqlo, Linen Shirt, COS Trousers, Massimo Dutti driving shoes, American Apparel Belt, Vintage 1973 Seiko Watch. (mirror shot. I really need an intern!)
GENERAL! A decidedly Men’s store, one of the few in Manila. I was invited over to check out the new collection of Lyle & Scott, being on a holiday and fond of the brand, I decided to make the visit. The moment you step into the GENERAL store, a feeling of quality is felt. The polished concrete floors, geometric tiles, oxblood chesterfield couch all lend an air that is very british and longstanding.
I particularly liked the window display as it was travel themed and had an informed explorer feel to it as opposed to a glossy, well-heeled yet out of place checklist traveller.
I love Harrington jackets, they have always been quintessentially british to me. The red one is perfect for people looking to incorporate (a lot) more color into their wardrobes.
I take a long time looking and selecting clothes, thinking of how to incorporate into my existing closet, if the stitches are clean, if the material is natural or synthetic, and the walang kamatayang “is this a good investment?”
Trying things on, I opened the curtain just for the photo of course! This is an older piece, but fits really well, felt like Steve McQueen until the moment I took it off.
No fail oxford shirt, with some nice details that make it unique.
Of course a discussion about the different brands available in the store, top of my head I remember Lyle & Scott, Penfield, Johnston & Murphy, SWIMS, Clae, Herschel, Hedgren, Boxfresh and Reyn Spooner. Well established brands that are identifiable for us guys and with rich brand histories. GENERAL is a good store to check out if you’re looking for new styles or upgrades to your existing favorites.
