Lifestyle blog from the eyes of GANDHUM discussing menswear and exciting collaborations.


The GANDHUM Man is a lifestyle inspired blog, commissioned by Jas Gandhum, aspiring to deliver an all-encompassing fashion and lifestyle page featuring collaborations with some of the most stylish influencers and menswear brands. The blog hopes to deliver a balanced view between tailoring and relaxedwear, categories The GANDHUM Man enjoys to his most. The blog aims to make references to style, fashion and lifestyle trends hand picked to appease The GANDHUM Man.

The first edition of the blog sees an exciting three way collaboration with firstly, IVAR London, luxury interior architecture and online destination for men’s home lifestyle. Secondly, menswear influencer Chez Rust who is taking social media by storm with his uber-cool polished street style. Finally,  GANDHUM AW17 collection where you will get to see a selection of the garments worn and styled on Chez.

The GANDHUM AW17 pieces worn by Chez include relaxed loungewear and formalwear and the images captured observe Chez lounging and appreciating the pleasantries of a luxury Kensington apartment. The GANDHUM AW17 collection was initially shown at London Fashion Week Men’s and has quickly become a favourite amongst GANDHUM clientele. The collection, named “Primeval Forest” takes GANDHUM into a new direction of a lifestyle brand with the introduction of luxurious casualwear pieces. The collection was created and inspired from the essence of raw and untouched primeval forestry conveying a sense of mystery and unknown. An atmospheric tone dominates by way of earthy tones, a variety of natural textures and diverse colour pallets. The unassembled perfection and the depth of visual character observed in an untouched forest inspire the fabric selections and construction methods used throughout. Each garment in the collection is considered a unique statement piece just as each forest holds it own identity. 

Similar to the unique pieces from GANDHUM collections are the exclusive elements of IVAR luxury apartments, the destination for this shoot. The apartment is a thoughtfully created and designed space by interior architects IVAR London. Not only do they maintain a contemporary edge throughout their residences they hold such high regard for unique craftsmanship. From the moment you step into this Kensington apartment you gather an appreciation for the bespoke designed floor patterns and hand laid touch that gives true IVAR identity. Signature IVAR abstract lines and masculine contrasting through furnishings and woods compliment soft white walls in this luxury real estate. The apartment pays special attention to thought out intelligent design, utilising obscure corners and maximising lighting for a bright airy ambiance. This IVAR apartment is perfectly matched to meet the lifestyle of The GANDHUM Man, someone looking for a sophisticated and elegant residence in one of the most sought after locations, worldwide.

We found some time to speak with Chez and ask a few lifestyle questions to try and get to know the man himself:

  • Where do you get your day to day style and fashion inspiration from?

I would say Instagram does play a big part on my style inspiration following other guys in fashion and mens fashion accounts but I would also say my parents inspire me a lot with my style as they have very different styles to what most people expect your parents to look like and it does inspire me to be different too.

  • What is your most prized piece of clothing or accessory?

Probably one of my leather jackets, I love wearing leather jackets but I do have a favourite which was actually one of my first leather jackets from Boda Skins, I wear it a lot!

  • With such a busy work diary how do you like to unwind and relax in your valuable downtime?

I love to spend my free time in the gym or playing football, those two things really do just make me completely forget anything thats going on in my life and gives me a couple of ours to refresh and unwind.

  • You’ve recently done some great work with L’Oreal and the Prince’s Trust, what can Chez Rust fan’s expect to see in the future?

Many more great things to come that I feel very lucky to be working on, and a part of which I can't really say just yet but keep your eyes peeled!

  • Now you’ve worn and tried some GANDHUM menswear how does it make you feel?

Every time I've worn a GANDHUM piece I've really felt like I'm wearing quality and it takes my confidence up a level, I don't think you will ever feel bad wearing GANDHUM.
