MR PORTER recently commissioned Harlem-bred rapper A$AP Rocky for their latest photo shoot. The platinum-selling hip-hop artist reveals more than ever from his early years to losing his father this past Christmas. Stylistically, Rocky effortlessly sports high fashion brands such as Givenchy, Margiela, Valentino, Jil Sander and raps about them from time-to-time as well.

With Mad Men back on our screens, the folks at MR PORTER just couldn’t help but do another 1960s style tailoring story.

Head on over to MR PORTER to see the beautiful imagery and read the words of Mansel Fletcher as well.
For those that follow us on Twitter (shameless plug), you may have noticed my declaration of love for Boardwalk Empire. The show’s set in Atlantic City during the Prohibition Era and is undoubtedly one of the most well-written shows on television today.

Back to the subject at hand, MR PORTER actually sat down with Mr. Williams for a brief Q&A, one that gives us a little bit of insight into the man he is off the screen. At the same time, they’ve also dropped a few accompanying looks as he sports the season’s best coats.
