Fifth in the series of our Twelve Men story, introducing Rory McKellar.
Rory McKellar self proclaimed Mayfair misfit and man about town knows how to enjoy himself. I caught up with him the other day at a house party thrown by show girls, where we were animatedly discussing the plot for his latest feature film; a coming of age story set against a backdrop of fighting Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.
Since graduating from film school 18 years ago Rory has been in demand as a film maker. Working on projects as diverse as pop videos for Russian girl punk band Manflu, advertising shorts for Range Rover and documentaries on starting your own country, he is always busy.
Rory spent his youth in the country where he was naturally drawn to tweeds due to their heritage and array of colours. However, as the years pass he finds his wardrobe veering towards the monochrome mainly due to the practicalities of avoiding blemishes whilst finding interesting camera angles. A fan of Swedish clothing brand ACNE and the Other store in Soho he has now discovered Dashing Tweeds and delights in the reflective Lumatwills. His jacket of choice today is our jockey jacket tailored in a cotton jacquard which is woven in Suffolk and fully lined in silk, worn here with his favorite vintage Cutler and Gross sunglasses. The reflective panels on the jacket come in handy whilst peddling his way back to Mayfair in the early hours.
