Lee Paton EXCLUSIVE Preview AW 2012 Collection and Show

With only 3 days to go until Lee Paton’s (Twitter – @Lee_Paton) AW 2012 / 13 show, we were invited into his studio for an exclusive sneak peek of the collection. Never to disappoint we found Lee and his team hard at work putting the finishing touches to beautiful leather straps, engraving antique horns, and embellishing with some rather fabulous beads and embroidery.

Of course, with our love for taxidermy our favorite pieces will be those with a little animal magic.  Although we cant say too much yet, here are a couple of sneak peeks of the team at work on a white pigeon.

Lee’s much anticipated show is on Thursday the 29th March 2012, and is inspired by the centenary of Captain Scott’s legendary, but ill-fated expedition to the South Pole.  With Hendrick’s Gin (Twitter – @HendricksGinUK) already crafting some new cocktails in honour of the show, and Patrick Wolf (Twitter – @_Patrick_Wolf) performing on the night with his string quartet, this is going to be one not to miss.  To Lee and Captain Scott we salute you and your endeavours.

Welcome to Maketh The Man, a lifestyle and travel blog by Callum Watt and Anton Welcome.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
