Nick Clements About The 10-Years Anniversary

Nick Clements, editor in chief and founder of Men’s File magazine about the 10-years anniversary: ”It’s hard to believe we have been chronicling manifestations of style for 10 years. The truth is we have been doing it a lot longer than that. It’s goes back to the late 1970s and the start of the rockabilly scenes in both the UK and USA. That’s where this all started, at London clubs like The Beat Route in Greek Street, where British beatnik types mixed with young men and women in heavily faded 501s and Schott one-star jackets or peg-trousers and a Hawaiian shirt. In other words, the art-school kids, the rockabillies and the soul boys. This was an experimental time when (mostly homemade) style cascaded through the streets of London’s Soho in exclusive and impenetrable cliques that few in the general population even noticed. That’s when Men’s File really started, it just took another 30 years for it to become official. Perhaps that’s the nature of things? First it is lived, then recorded and finally commodified. But we don’t give up so easily as we have never left that idea of the unauthorised and homemade that automatically reinvents itself out of sight of the onlookers.”
