What a ‘fitting’ collaboration, two fine British brands coming together for one of the best sport/clothing relationships of all time – Thomas Pink and The Lions. I’m not sure who pitched to who but they hit the nail on the head and last night The Versatile Gent was at David Jones to listen to a Lions Q&A and check out the Lions collection of menswear.
Hosted by GQ’s editor Nick Smith the players answered a series of questions from a dedicated rugby crowd and then posed for photos and signed autographs for fans. TVG got in the mix early and grabbed ourselves a Pink rugby ball which we had signed by a few of the players. Up close the gents looked very sharp, dressed in bespoke velvet jackets with peak lapels and intricately monogrammed pockets.
The Lions collection includes blazers, knits, shirts, ties and an awesome selection of socks. You can check out the full range at David Jones.
