Mr Tylr : Road To Pitti Uomo 94

If you are passionate about fine tailoring, it’s only a matter of time before Pitti Uomo pops up on your radar. After-all, its only the most glamorous menswear festival to ever be invented in the history of mankind. If you referred to it as menswear “mecca” you would be apt to do so. I can’t recall the first time I heard of this event, this gathering of impeccably dressed gentlemen. However, I know ever since I did, I’ve dreamed of attending. This year I’ll be visiting Florence to attend Pitti Uomo 94, alongside countless other gentleman from the four corners of the earth. In the mean time, I’ve copped an Iconic two button suit from my friends @Sartor. I’ve matched...

Mr Tylr x Antonio Marras: Print Fusion

   I’ve been in talks with my friends at Antonio Marras to put the spotlight on eclectic print ensembles and contemporary tailoring from the SS 17 collection.  If I had to put the results of our collaboration in one phrase, I would call it: “an organic fusion of eclectic prints and contemporary tailoring”.

The other ensemble (my favorite), is a classic three button suit with the modern twist of tapered cropped pants. P.S I...

Mr Tylr Studio Sessions: Episode 1

  I try to shed light on the elements of proper men's tailoring, through my work. I do this in a way that does not absolve you of the responsibility of filtering what's "true" and what's "false" for yourself. I'm here to offer empowerment through knowledge. Knowledge that allows for informed decisions. In the wake of the "urban chaos" that the 21st century has become; the importance of personal responsibility and vigilance for truth cannot be over emphasized, lest we all become lost :)   In these photos Apparel – Massimo Dutti    Visuals – Sami Sasso

Mr Tylr x Lincoln MKZ : A Tale Of Luxury

Personal quests lead us far away, far away in search of finer things. In search of finer fabrics and white vehicles designed with perfect aerodynamics and touch sensitive lock systems.  I’m trying to parallel my quests with great design, it’s my hope that somewhere in the horizon both parallels might intersect.    In these photos Unconstructed Linen Jacket – Custom Design by Mr Tylr, Fabric by Loro Piana All White Sedan - Lincoln 2017 MKZ  Visuals – Matthew Tyzack   Mr Tylr x Lincoln MKZ : A Tale Of Luxury from Ifeanyi Ibekwe on Vimeo.

Mr Tylr X Shutiq: Custom Velvet Slippers

  I’ve been in the market for velvet slippers for a while now, primarily because they are the perfect blend of design and comfort. When I found Shutiq, I was quite pleased to say the least. In addition to the velvet slippers I’ve wanted for so long, I got the opportunity to personalize them to my preferences. I’ve detailed my thoughts of the overall experience in the paragraphs below, for someone who’s skeptical about services like this, Shutiq exceeded my expectations and so I’m keen to tell the story. Craftsmanship  My primary yardstick for judging any pair of shoes is the level of craftsmanship. Shoes mean a lot to me, so it’s difficult for me to compromise on things like...
