A SELECTION OF FIVE TRENCHES

TWELVE MARCH, TWO THOUSAND AND TEN

Envisioning the joy of wearing a trench coat, Mr. JOHAN SANDBERG photographed five lovely examples – viewable by clicking on the image above – on Mr. LAURENCE WASSER, the drummer of the Belgian “no-wave” band LAURENCE WASSER, in Paris, with styling by Mr. NIK PIRAS. The band will be releasing a new 7″ in April on the label PLASTIC SPOON.

In the first image, a gust of wind catches LAURENCE’s pearl-gray-trimmed trench and beige trousers, both by LANVIN. Next, LAURENCE descends the stairs in a grey trimmed double-breasted trench and silk shirt by DRIES VAN NOTEN, grey silk and wool trousers by PRADA, and brown leather shoes by RAF SIMONS. In the third, LAURENCE wears a white double-breasted cotton and polyurethane trench, belts and shoes by RAF SIMONS, and black trousers by MARC JACOBS. Fourth, LAURENCE pauses in a white cotton trench and beige cotton shirt by MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA and black HUGO trousers. Finally, LAURENCE wears a black nylon trench with contrast collar and zip cardigan by YVES SAINT LAURENT. Photographed by JOHAN SANDBERG for FANTASTIC MAN, with styling by NIK PIRAS. Styling assistance by NICOLAS GALLETTI, grooming by KARIN BIGLER at Artlist, and casting by ALEXANDRA SANDBERG.

  2. lineage of influence:

    Great shots, especially the second and third ones.

    Looks like all the trench’s shown are worth further investigation though.

  3. Mr Cheap Date:

    I love no wave. I don’t like double breasted or belted macs. Something of the private investigator about them. By the way,dear that worldmanabouttown, your blog is properly funny. Blast-washed or snow-washed denim takes me back to a decade that style forgot. Jeans came (from Stolen from Ivor!) with stones actually in the pockets sometimes. Did no favours for the washing machine. Not that I had any myself of course.

  4. Ilbellodelmeteo:

    beautiful!

  5. marc:

    I love these shots, I never really was a trench coat person but these pictures make me want them.

  6. Style Salvage Steve:

    As the rain clouds loom large over my Friday afternoon in London I look longingly at these images. I particularly like the silhouette created by the Maison Martin Margiela trench and the feather light fabric of Lanvin’s.

  7. koeun:

    great photo! would love to see more!

  8. Worldmanabouttown:

    Dear ‘Mr Cheap Date’ (love the moniker, by the way!), thanks for your kind words about my blog. Keep reading and sending feedback!

  9. charlie:

    why is it that every time you create sets of images that you have to click to see further photos it never works?? is they not another way of viewing your images ?

  10. Magnus:

    charlie: I have never had any problems viewing their photos. maybe it has something to do with your browser? I use firefox on both mac and windows.

CURRENT ISSUE
19

SPRING & SUMMER 2014

What a return! The unmistakable form of Mr. BORIS BECKER, as photographed by his compatriot JUERGEN TELLER, graces the cover of this 19th edition of Fantastic Man – the issue for Spring & Summer 2014. Part of the accompanying interview takes place at tennis legend BORIS’ London home, in the familiar district of WIMBLEDON. Where else, after all, would a six-time GRAND SLAM singles champion choose to live and work? Elsewhere in the issue, a quartet of ELITE MENSWEAR designers – Mr. TOM FORD, Mr. STEFANO PILATI, Mr. ALESSANDRO SARTORI and Mr. BRENDAN MULLANE – are interviewed and photographed as part of unprecedented investigation into the LOFTIEST and most lucrative echelons of the fashion business. The magnificent archive and working practices of the mononymous SNOWDON are discussed at home with the society portraitist. Plus, what is the humble DRY CLEANER actually doing with the garments you hold most dear, why do airline cabin crew particularly adore the celebrated newshound Mr. RICHARD QUEST, and how does one get involved in the fabulous vintological craze that is HYPERDECANTATION? These questions and more are answered in the brilliant new Fantastic Man. Order now
