The New Blog - GarconJon.com

As we've put our Les Garcons de Glasgow adventures on hold, you can follow Jonathan on his mens style and photography blog GarconJon.com. As a photographer, he's documenting everything from street style to photo-essays with intriguing gents across the world (the Richard Haines interview is particularly interesting).

If you'd like to see more Glasgow style, click out 'Birthday' links above for a retrospective of Year 1 & 2.

100 Beards, 100 Days

Using street style for trend analysis, I'm always interested in how groups of people ignite a new concept which then spreads into the the general publics conscious.

The beard is by no means a new trend in men's style, but since moving to London a few months ago, it's one that has stood out for me more than any other. Over the past few years, the beard has re-established itself as the ultimate accessory for the modern gentleman.

My fascination with the beard peaked this month, partially due to my own inability to grow a face of full handsome hair, and so I've set myself a new challenge. Every day for 100 days, I will attempt to find a new beard to photograph. I'm now on day 5 and you can follow my progress on 100Beards.Tumblr.com. Enjoy!

Another Garçon: Mens Street Style

Over the past six months, I've become particularly interested in men's style. The men's shows at fashion week have always been my favourite: less pretentious & manic, more considered and industry-focused, but it's style on the street which has always captured my attention.

Last year, I started Another Garçon to keep this blog cleaner and more focused, and last month I decided to do the same on Another Garçon. It's now dedicated it to what I know and love best: men's style. On the blog I'll be featuring interviews with inspirational men in the Superior Interior series, fashion shoots & all my favourite men's street style. Photography from the recent London Collections: Men are now online and over the next few days I'll be posting my recent findings as I discover London's many boroughs.

London Collections: Men

Over this weekend at London Collections: Men, I was able to catch up with many people I've not seen in what feels like a lifetime. As it's been so long, I was asked many times about Another Garçon and it's connection to Les Garçons de Glasgow.

As both Daniel and I now both live in London, the context of this blog has changed. Initially a proud ambassador of Scottish style and creativity, it's now become a broader documentation of interesting people we meet. As I focus my attention on photography and consultancy, and Daniel furthers his career in advertising, we're not able to update as often as we'd like. My niche has always been menswear, working at men's fashion week in Paris and brands like Adam Kimmel, hence my not-so-new sartorial blogging at Another Garçon. On this blog, you'll find all my men's street style, fashion musings and photography as well as odd bit's from my travels. I'll continue to post women's looks and the odd client shoot on Les Garçons de Glasgow as I have done since introducing Another Garçon a year ago, but it won't be the daily updates I was doing in the past.

For now, check out photography from my favourite men's shows from this weekend's London Collections at AnotherGarcon.blogspot.com, and stay in touch on Twitter @GarconJon or email JDP@jonathandanielpryce.com.

Scottish Fashion Awards Photographer of the Year!

I'm so proud to have won Photographer of the Year at this years Scottish Fashion Awards. After having the blog nominated last year, I was surprised and thrilled just to be nominated (cliché alert!) so to win is more than incredible. A special thank you to Tessa, her team and the judging panel. Check out my backstage photos and thoughts from the night at Another Garçon.

Maria: Church St, Edinburgh

Traveling back to Scotland for the Scottish Fashion Awards, I knew there was only one place to get cleaned-up with a haircut and shave - the handsome new barbers Ruffians on Queensferry St. On my way over I bumped into Maria. We had a brief chat about Scotland and my usually sharp accent detector was thrown - American, mixed with Eastern European twangs? Turns out the native Russian lived in Washington DC for much of her childhood. Just graduating from St Andrews with a Masters in Marketing, she's making her way to London to start a career in the big smoke.

Prohibition Glamour at Citizen M


There's a real charm to Glasgow that you just can't replace or pin down. With each time I meet someone new, be it in a street style situation or not, the response is overwhelmingly positive when they hear that Glasgow is my home city. I must admit, it does make me proud.

It's now been nearly a year since I moved from the not-so-Mean city and not a month goes by where I'm not highly tempted to return for some event. The reason this month? Prohibition Glamour. This design orgy, organised by my Bold Souls chums, is an exciting step forward for new Scottish design talent and with the new home of Citizen M it's bound to be a real winner.

Check out the video from the last event below and head over to Prohibition Glamour this Thursday from 6pm for over 20 fashion stalls, cherry-picked vintage and of course a show to top it all off. Tickets are limited to 100 so better be fast! Each ticket gets you entry, a bottle of Kopparberg and a hair styling session with Rainbow Rooms International. Enjoy it for me Glasgow!

SFA Nomination: Young Photographer of the Year

In 2011, Les Garçons de Glasgow was nominated for 'Communicator of the Year' at the Scottish Fashion Awards and today I discovered I've been nominated for 'Young Photographer of the Year'. Working primarily as a blogger and digital consultant, the photography is often lost amongst the campaign, so to be recognised in this category is a surprise and a huge honour. A big thank you to everyone who has helped me to do what I love, particularly my best friend Daniel.

Below is some of my favourite street images from the past 12 months and visit AnotherGarçon.blogspot.com to see my range of fashion, portrait and street work.

Somerset House: Street Style SS12

With piles of seemingly never-ending work, I've been rather lax when it comes to blog posts. Apologies for the less-than-regular schedule, normal street photography will resume shortly. For now, enjoy some more style seen at Somerset House last Fashion Week in London. For details shots and more men's style, go to AnotherGarçon.blogspot.com.

Alessandro: Somerset House, London

I'm usually a little conflicted about Italian style. The old Milanese have it down, with their short leg pants, expertly fitted blazers and full beards, but I'm not so in touch with the younger generation who have a love affair with sportswear. Alessandro seemed to bring both worlds together perfectly: plaid blazer and paisley collar shirt bringing some British vintage, paired with coloured skinnys and Converse.

Emilie: Elm Row, Edinburgh

Edinburgh isn't a city associated with taking risks with style. When I spotted Emilie, a Bristol native studying sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art, her stark but relaxed outfit stood out. The loose mens trousers rolled up to show the battered old cherry Docs are equal in measure of style and practicality - just what is needed to be a hands-on artist. Check out her musing via Tumblr on EmilieHouldsworth.tumblr.com.

Lily: Dundee Botanical Gardens

Last month I travelled up to Dundee to shoot the SS12 campaign for Scottish brand Nkili. It was my first time to Scotland's fourth largest city and also the first ever collection for Nkili. Born from a desire to find the perfect silk shirt, Tolani founded the company based on values of hand craft and ethical manufacturing. Here, Lily is wearing one of my favourite pieces - the Beaulah silk shirt with hand printed collar.
