Drawing inspo from streetwear and vintage threads, the team of 'monkeys' has created a line of formal wear that won't empty your wallet of all its contents for the unforeseeable future. Because of the high quality tailoring and small prices, the range is available online at ASOS.com and Topman.com and instore at Topman's flagship on Oxford St.
The label has split AW14 into two distinct collections. On the one hand, you've got the Evil Monkey collection, a smart line of evening wear with a fun twist. The sumptuous fabrics will give you an air of sophistication, but also let everyone in the room know that you're there to party, not to discuss property portfolios and the ineptitude of the clerks at Coutts.
On the other side there's the Loveable Chimp collection. This is for a classy guy, more prone to the styles of old - think tweed, herringbone, waistcoasts - but still sporting swagger of a younger generation. This is the line to turn to for a more formal function, especially if you want to look dashing, not dour. Engaging, not eminent.
There's an Evil Monkey and Lovable Chimp in all of us. Noose & Monkey will help bring them out at right moments.
