Grant has discussed with Britain's The Guardian the 5 things he knows about style
The the 5 things Patrick Grant has said he knows about style are:
1 Keep it simple. I've always been into tailored clothes, so I don't like anything too fussy. I started borrowing my dad's 1960s suits when I was 14 and they fitted me for a while, but then I grew out of them.2 I'm not a fan of denim. I spent the best part of a year looking for the perfect shoes for jeans. Eventually I realised it wasn't the shoes that were a problem, it was the damn jeans. I don't like them.3 There are no rules. Wear what works for you. I tend to wear one or two colours as a base and then a little pop of something else. I try to make sure everything is harmonious.4 British men's fashion is coming back to life. We were a dominant force right up until the Peacock Revolution, then the Italians took over. There seems to be a real momentum behind British menswear houses now.5 There's a backlash against a couple of decades of scruffiness. There was a revulsion during the Thatcher era towards fat cats and suits. Now men are sharpening up again.
