Favourite Fives : Graeme Fidler

Several is a pretty good name for a brand isn’t it? It’s not just a clever catchword though, it sums up the ethos of the collective behind it, all of whom have a wealth of experience and serious #menswear pedigree.

Ex-of Bally and Aquascutum, Graeme Fidler heads up the whole thing as Creative Director, and he’s ably assisted by Patrick (Oi Polloi, Norse Projects), Reuben (Fred Perry Laurel, Stone Island) and Clem (Margaret Howell , Aquascutum). With such a decent range of experience, you just know Several is going to be good.

It’s the captain of the good ship Several who we’re concerned with right now though, and his favourite five offers even more insight into what to expect from this fluid mix of clothing brand, retailer and design consultancy.
