Introducing Original Man

An Interview with Patrick Grant

Posted by Gestalten—11/2014 met with the editor of Gestalten’s new publication Original Man to find out more about the inspiration and work behind the book. Very much an original man himself, the multitalented and charismatic menswear designer traces the fascination for stories of great men back to his early teens, explains how the sheer volume of reporting in the digital era has come to obscure the stories of the genuinely interesting, and stresses the value of the right photograph to accurately convey the essence of a man’s character.

The book is now available for purchase here.

Inspired by the stories of defining male characters from the book, we are also presenting a selection of 10 gentlemen’s items from our Gestalten Stores sure to make the everyday just that little bit less ordinary. Have a look.
