MAN 1924 – A New Favorite Store

I was in Madrid last week and visited MAN 1924, wanting a closer look after too quick a visit to the shop last November.   (I found MAN 1924 through meeting and photographing its owner, Carlos Castillo, above; Carlos has an incredible eye and the shop really reflects his personal style.)  Following this chance to spend a little more time there, I can say it’s quickly become one of my favorites in the world – right up with there with Al Bazar  and Tie Your Tie.

 

The thing I love about MAN 1924 is its perfect execution of casual chic.  I don’t know, maybe it’s something to do with the fact that it’s Spanish, but unlike Al Bazar or Tie Your Tie (perfectly manicured, sprezzatura looks – which I absolutely love), MAN 1924 is just that slight bit messy – but in a very cool way.  It actually is probably the closest to how I really dress – unlined jackets, cotton shirts, creased cotton pants, paired well with New Balance tennis shoes (if I can hide them from Garance and keep her from throwing them out – but more about that later…)

 

I hardly ever take pictures of mannequins, but while I was there I just loved how they were put together – their color combinations, patterns, textures.   I took these photos almost selfishly, to help remind me of their ideas.

 

The other thing that is really great  is that – from what I understand - most of the clothes there are made by or for MAN 1924 exclusively.  Somehow, even given this, the prices are actually very good given the quality of design and materials; most of the jackets (and don’t quote me, but as I remember) are at or around 500 €, shirts were in the 120 € range, pants were in the 150 € range.  It’s not cheap, but still much less expensive than any “designer” brand.

 

When you add MAN 1924 to Just One, another of my Madrid favorites (with a couple of other small, old-school shops whose names I am blanking on right now!), Madrid has surprisingly become one of my favorite (and most budget-busting) menswear destinations.

 

For guys in the US, I would literally start petitioning Barneys (they are at the forefront of this category of the market – just introduced Piombo, expanded their buy of Aspesi, and have continuing business with Massimo Alba), Neimans, Saks to start featuring the line.  There is this whole level out there that I see that would do so well here.

 

If you can’t make it to Madrid, you really need the chance to buy this line locally.

    To me, only a very handsome man could pull of this style.

    Antonia, I agree. It would also have to be a tall thin man, as the layering is so bulky (and even sloppy) looking.

    This is rumpled chic that certainly not every man could pull off! I admire the merchandising too! With your stamp of approval and influence Scott, they will no doubt find a home state side sometime soon!

    Hi, i´m from Madrid, I live and work thereand I loved it.

    I think that MAn 1924, Anglomania, Scalpers and LAnder Urquijo , are the best mens wears shops you can find i n the world.

    I ALso love Al Bazar in milano.

    This store used to have women clothes too, wich was one of the favorites
    spots of my mother, but they don’t have femenine section anymore.
    The original location, and I think that the first one, is in the city of Bilbao,
    on the north of Spain, where they still have a recently renewal and so stylish store.
    Best!!!

    I think that birtish look is very appreciate all over Spain because it’s smart, masculine, everlasting and you can adapt it to your lifestyle easily. That’s perfect if you have self-confidence and nothing to hide. Must of us don’t want to spend 4000€ a year to look like hipsters.

    Congrats for your blog, it’s my favourite one

    I like a somewhat rumpled look. Like he just rolled out of bed and threw on his favorite worn pieces.
    Also a midnight navy linen blazer would work nicely under a sturdier overcoat for a disheveled-chic look in the late fall.

    see,that’s why we love you..Last time you give us Mr Marztto,now you give us this Hugh jackman in a d.h.laurence wear. it’s masuculine yet poetic.

    there’s rare stylish thing men can do ..but when they do, it always comes out as a hallmark of his personal style…love the tie,it’s simply masuline…you can do the same w/ a little scarf out of the some sportswear w/ the same sanding collor..and tug in or not whenever your blazer butttoned or not.it’s fun.

    November 1, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Antonia’s point rules me out then!

    Mind you, she does have a point! Mutton dressed as mutton is a phrase I could often use on women who are wearing clothes too young for them and who LOOK like women wearing clothes too young for them.
    Same with some men! This wouldn’t suit me, according to Mrs Jason, but it doesn’t stop me wishing!

    I know the MAN 1924´ shops, both in Madrid and Bilbao, I recommend the spaces, all garments and accesories you can find there!!! Try to visit them: Madrid (Claudio Coello, 17) and Bilbao (Ercilla, 21). This Spanish brand has a huge history in tailoring and casual chic wear… Somebody tells me that MAN 1924 will launch a new website in 2 weeks, e-store included!!! Great!! Carlos… thanks for your work, your know-how and your look! kisses

  41. JR

    November 1, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    don’t really catch up with your excitement; isn’t MAN1924 really just an hommage to the typical style that younger East Coast adults wear when they feel formal-casual?! Just add the Ralph Lauren logo with Photoshop, and you’ll probably see what I mean.

    Scott, it’s okay to advocate for the cool dude style, but where oh where is there the woman’s version? Not Ralph…maybe in a shop on a side street in a small provincial Italian city, maybe? I mean clothes that you can actually wear, that are affordable AND ARE NOT MADE IN A SWEATSHOP? Alas.

    Love these displays, reminds of the windows of the menswear stores in Rome – they “puff ” the ties out in a similar fashion.

    Sorry but as is it’s BORING! – yet another straight out regurgitation from the 80′s (if you really lived it then you know what I am talking about) This look rally needs a high tech mix to bring it into the current decade … kind of like what Massimo Osti did with the CP label during that decade.

  56. The Sartorialist

    November 2, 2011 at 12:31 am

    two things

    -Man 1924 isn’t Ralph Lauren, I buy a lot of RL and this is different- different in a way that Smokey Robinson is different than Kanye West.

    – this isn’t 80′s
    I lived the 80′s and if you don’t see the difference i can’t help you. CP was great but the details are different and it is all about the details

  57. Adrien

    November 2, 2011 at 2:21 am

    For me that kind of layering styles are a good office alternative to the regular suits. Not a casual friday but more of a good mood day! The colors and patterns are open for any mix without to much of a shock! Too bad we don’t get to see any shoes proposals on those lovely pics.

  58. Nomadic D

    November 2, 2011 at 3:24 am

    Those mannequins look amazing! I love the way they’re layered and styled and piled up like that. I actually live in Madrid, though in my family, I’m the shopaholic, not my husband. Still, I’m so happy to have this recommendation, I think we’ll be headed there soon to check it out. Thanks!

I do not think I have ever seen mannequins dressed the way I wish most men would dress…..OMG…….tugging at my heart, here……..Thank you for brightening my dreary day in Paris with this amazing array of down to earth but full of top class creativity………I love the man behind these looks!!! If I had a son, I would hop on a plane now and go buy, buy, buy!!!

    with upmost sincerity, Linda

    November 2, 2011 at 5:02 am

    Quite frankly I’m shocked that you haven’t included a reference to Mr. “Very Young Madrid’ from The Sartorialist, Nov., 2010 archives. Pretty much an all time Sartorialist followers favorite. Certainly the most numerous positive comments ever! Had the weather been cooler, he no doubt would have layered even more exquisitely, as per Man 1924 mannequins.

    As you recall, Senor VYM sported a well loved, richlydetailed hand knitted short cardi, over a classic Spainish collarless white shirt, layered with midriff details visible of beautifully detailed stitching, suspenders , buttons and pockets of his coordinating bermuda shorts. Further, Senor VYM modeled the fine details of which I think you speak: Enthusiastically pointing out pom pom knee socks pared with rich suede monk straps. Surely he is the inspiration behind Man 1924.

    And yes, like the perfect Man1924 client……..he is Handsome!!

    Always love others interpretation of British Style as it’s so, SO very much better and less scruffy, grubby and lacking than our original. These clothes are hitting the mark in al the right places and remain masculine and intelligent – this is essential. I love the idea of this being in Madrid!!

  63. GLOSSLIPSTICK

    November 2, 2011 at 5:19 am

    I love the layering and mixture of textures, prints, etc. on the mannequins. Ha! Putting Kanye in the same sentence as Smokey R. is an insult to Smokey. Glad Garance is trying to rid you of your “gym shoe’ look. Whatever happened to your bespoke shoes? Do you have them yet?

    You talked about MAN in Madrid, but this shop is originally from Bilbao. If you liked it, you must go there, because that’s a really stylish city.
    someone also talked about Lander Urquijo, I would say the same, the seed is the seed, Lander worked in man bilbao (i think) for many years.

    Re: Here’s link to my earlier post referencing “The Sartorialist ” archived Nov., 2010, “On the Street…Very Young Madrid”. Among the 500+ comments, many Spainiards commented that this rich, classic detailed look is quite common among metroploitan Spainiard kids, and after just a bit of play they naturally achieve that flawless rumpled Man 1924 look. Can A Boy 1924 kids be far behind? I would love this look on my grandsons.

    Also, Scott, maybe you could you work with New Balance/Spainish/Italian shoe crew to create a super comfortable Monk Strap? Such a handsome, casual, sturdy yet versatille shoe…and can be worn ‘open’, a la Mr. Cortina! If the kids can play in them, must be something to it. I have to agree with Garance. Maybe think of sacrifing the NB look as ‘parity’ with women in our painful heels!

    http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/on-the-street-very-young-madrid-madrid/

    Love these photos, the masterful displays, the look and rich ‘couture like’ detail of the Man 1924 line!

    The olive outer field jacket in the top photo reminds me of my father’s old wool-lined M53 (percursor to the M65) US Army field jacket. I’ve been looking for a reasonable facsimile for years. I have this bad feeling that Man 1924 doesn’t sell it in tall sizes.

    scott, millions of compliments for having inserted the photos of the mannequins, Carlos’ style is only seemingly close to an Italian style where the final effect is frequently too polished or almost dressed up, the flair that one gets out of these styles is so genuine and unique, a great inspiration, can be easily pulled off also in a female version…

    I LOVE this. I love the military coats and tweed jackets. It combines everything I’d like to see in a men’s outfit, a bit of art, a sense of history, a little carelessness, and undeniable masculinity. Usually in men’s fashion there are only two looks promoted; one being ridiculous or feminine looking clothing (or “costumes” as I call them), the second look is wearing the same old boring black-suit-blue-shirt combination. It’s refreshing to see something like this.

    “Perfection does not work without a disdein touch”. My grandmather used to say that about beauty and looks. I think she was right, and I love how this gay and his shop walk on this way.

    Does anyone know what kind of jacket the gentleman is wearing? It’s awesome and I would love to own a similar.

    Thanks from Chicago.

    I really love the VISUALs on the mannequins – the styling on them look stunning, so wearable, so digestable… it reminds me of J.Crew and Massimo Dutti… great job! will check out the brand! <3

    WOW, without a doubt, i would buy everything, awesome style. Personally i love to mix it with well worn jeans and vintage leather coats. Some people refer to Ralph’s style, i used to work for RL for quite a while and i definately understand why people refer to it. But are the influences seen here Ralph’s or is it more referring to a ivy league meets classic old style english posh blended by the store owner, with LOVE. Love for clothing, love for a certain feel which can’t be caught with words… anyway.. i LOVE it..if i can get the opportunity, i will definately pay a visited..

    except for the NB’s ;)

    The style of Mr. Castillo reminds me of Eral 55 in Milan . Both of them are among the few shops selling their own taste rather than being slave of the big brands…I would like you to find more stores like this ! …Ciao

    Just can’t get down with NBs, there are so many other equally comfortable and much more stylish kicks out there. Diesel/S.Madden first come to mind. Overall this is how I dress in the winter, well minus the overcoat, bc most dudes like myself would melt.

    Many men in Spain we dress like this, is usual in cities like Madrid, Sevilla Bilbao, Santander …For my Carlos represents The authentic style.
    Scott I invite you to visit more Spanish cities, You might find A style between Englishman and Italian gentlemen. I love the new balance, the whole discovery for my. Thanks!

    Bye bye boring dark blue suit, here comes the color, the cotton, the personal way to dress for them. I have known this store since they opened in Madrid and I really love the air that these clothes give men. I have seen many shops around the world and all I want to say is come to Madrid to shop, you´ll love it. Recuerdos Tito

    Charming, the man looks much better than the models who are wearing his design.

    Thanx for letting us in on this great shop in Madrid! I agree with Kerstin that I prefer the owner’s look over the mannequins..
