Ed’s Fast Facts

If you didn’t already know iv got an unhealthy fascination with  Friendly Fires front-man, Ed MacFarlane. Its either those dance moves, blue eyes or style, which could be called a mash-up of traditionalist pieces with indie sartorial quirk, MacFarlane trademark  short-sleeve shirts, plain or tropical design or  a scoop-neck graphic knit with a pair of powder blue jeans and chinos. He also likes the odd tailored suit too!

Favourite Restaurant : The Ledbury. The crisp pressed suckling pig was unforgettable. If only I had the money to eat there every day.”

Favourite holiday location:  “The Welsh seaside village of Llangrannog has been a holiday destination for my family for many years. The historic countryside is steeped in folklore.

Favourite Fashion brand: On a casual level I prefer YMC. Their clothes are rugged and smart at the same time. If I’m going for a relaxed drink, I know I’m going to look good without looking like a show off.”

Essential wardrobe item: “My Church’s slippers are my essential onstage item. They give me that extra bounce in my step.”

Your favourite suit: Gieves & Hawkes. The staff are incredibly friendly and have great taste in music. My grey double-breasted checked suit is one of my prized possessions. I was fortunate enough to be given a sharp fitted double-breasted Gucci suit, although I rarely have an occasion to wear it these days.”

Favourite grooming product: “I think Ren have great shaving products. As an Eau De Toilette I love D’Orsay ‘Le Dandy’. I’ve never met anyone else who wears it, so it feels exclusive to me.”

Favourite Gadget: “Sennheiser earbuds are the only headphones I will use when I’m on the move. They are relatively cheap and have superior sound quality.”

Favourite book: “Young Adam by Alexander Trocchi”

Favourite Album: “Voodoo by D’Angelo. It’s an absolute masterclass in production and is the most soulful record of the last 40 years.”  Answers via The Mr Porter style council.
