Style is at the heart of everything we do at Esquire, and the same can be said for the Esquire Townhouse. In addition to the film screenings, supper clubs, master classes and in-conversation events – which, we might add, all exhibit an underlying sense of style – we have a panel discussion that looks to set the record straight on modern menswear once and for all.
A panel with more natural élan is hard to find. Firstly, the designer's perspective comes courtesy of Oliver Spencer and Charlie Casely-Hayford, two men at the very forefront of British fashion thanks to their respective subversions of menswear traditions. Then we have Jason Basmajian, the man credited with the revival of Savile Row icon Gieves & Hawkes. Formerly of Brioni and Ralph Lauren, Basmajian took the house from ailing tailor to modern menswear stalwart in just a few seasons, before moving on to become chief creative officer of Cerrutti 1881. Finally, Jeremy Langmead. Not only is he brand & content director at Mr Porter, but he was recently appointed editor-in-chief of The Times LUXX magazine, and has been Esquire's style columnist for the past few years. Needless to say, his knowledge of the industry is almost unparalleled. Whatever style questions you may have, you're sure to have them answered here.

Beyond the panel, the tailors of Savile Row icon Kilgour will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about tailoring, unveil the virtues of bespoke and made-to-measure, and even measure you up for size. If you've ever wondered what the real difference is between off-the-peg and tailor-made, this is your chance to find out.
