David Evans’ blog, Grey Fox, delights in an area of fashion that many of us don’t pay enough attention too - men’s style advice for the over 40s. Steering his followers through the best of British brands and timeless design classics, Evans, provides insights, reviews and style updates for the style conscious mature man.
Grey Fox Blog is a delightful blog to fall into with an easy to read style and melting pot of ideas that make mature style what it should be, vibrant and engaging. David Evans himself is something of an expert in this area, having turned a personal frustration at the lack of inspiration for older men’s fashion into a thriving blog, social media presence, and modelling career.
Now one of the most successful men’s fashion blogs, the Grey Fox should definitely be on your reading list. The blog focuses on British Designers and classic styling (with plenty of edge) and will leave you seriously inspired. What’s more, David’s writing style and approach create an upbeat view of the fashion world that is a pleasure to explore.
The blog layout is simple and clean with posts organised by date but easy to search or access via keyword. There is also a useful feature which lists UK made menswear, helping you to find local, high-quality products to add to your wardrobe. David often models looks and styles himself, making the imagery here feel accessible and authentic.
We were lucky enough to partner with David for a fashion shoot in Little Venice, London. He showed off some of the Black men’s collection with his trademark sartorial style.

David makes a winter weekend wardrobe exciting with a statement accessory. Make sure your accessories pop by pairing an attention-grabbing piece with a neutral outfit. Steal the look with our Black and Ivory Houndstooth Knitted Cashmere Scarf.
Who says workwear should be dull? Here David uses a pale grey suit as the backdrop for contrasting patterns. Get playful with your accessories and recreate a similar look with our Prince of Wales Check Wool Tie and Black and White Polka Dot Pocket Square.
Here David brings elements of country style into his city wardrobe. Tweed can create a vintage sensibility in your everyday wardrobe and works particularly well with rich, brown accessories. Recreate this look with our Black and Brown Leather Driving Gloves.
