You might think assessing competition entries would be a boring chore but when each entry is a photographic portrait of handsome designers, actors, musicians etc., the burden’s mitigated somewhat.
Having pored over the entries for the Murdock London competition for the guts of this morning, I’ve finally selected a winner.
^ Patrick Grant in Man About Town
Congratulations Seb Law, who proposed E. Tautz head-honcho Patrick Grant’s traditionalist side-parted do as the ultimate hairstyle. Granted I may be blinded a bit by Grant’s good looks in general, but I still think this is a tried-and-trusted style that’s not only versatile, easily taking you from work to play, but also smart and distinguished.
Thanks also to Josh Whine (who opted for jewellery designer Philip Crangi’s soft yet stunning undercut), Janis Minins (who deemed 1950s movie star styles the cream of the crop – pardon the pun) and Pete Puustinen (who praised Noel Gallagher’s rock-infused shaggy do).
For more on Patrick Grant, read my unabashed adoration of his style here.
I am thoroughly jealous of Mr Grant's beard.
