For this edition of our Well Dressed series, we have the pleasure of featuring Alexander Gram. Alexander has become an integrated part of the Danish men’s fashion scene through various enterprises: He is the co-founder of the accessory brand An Ivy, primarily focusing on making ties. An undertaking with the mission of allowing men to dress up without looking like someone being born in the wrong era. Gram is also the founder of the successful menswear blog Preppy Beast, and works as a freelance fashion writer.
Alexander's personal style is very unique and relies on a mix of classic tailoring and sports and leisure wear. In that respect, his style and core aesthetic revolves around the suit, but will often feature elements that make his outfit stand out from the usual suit-wearing crowd. That might be with a pair of statement sneakers, a bag or jewellery - thus embracing the versatility of a suit. That way, by dressing up and utilizing the perfect balance of sportswear and accessories, he appears well dressed without being too formal.
This mix of two styles fits accurately into the Les Deux blend of preppy and streetwear. With Alexander’s pre-disposition for wearing traditional menswear and identifying key trends without becoming a slave to fashion, his style is contemporary. In his own words, he regards fashion this way: ”It is a universal language that allows you to express yourself wherever you are in the world”. At Les Deux, we agree with this sentiment and also favours timeless style rather than blindly following whatever trend is prevailing.
We asked Alexander to pick out his three favourite styles from our SS 19 collection, L'été de l'amour, that resonates the most with his personal style. These are:
