I love Vanessa’s blog because, above and beyond photographing stylish people going about their everyday lives (or, more frequently, attending some fashion week or other), there’s always a little background, a blurb – and I like that I feel a little like I know Vanessa, more, say, than I would know Ivan, Scott or Garance (from their street snap pieces; of late, Garance has moved away from that, towards more of a particular shooting style and she’s definitely got more personal, which I love). . .

Anyway, the point? I don’t do enough menswear, I’m told, so here’s one: how to look manly in florals. There’s one key, and it’s a simple ‘un: grow a beard. Or, forget about looking “manly” and concentrate on how awesome that scarf is.
