I’ve never heard of the Maltby Markets let alone been there. Maltby Street is just off Tower Bridge Road. But I was told I had to come down because there were men, style and a whole lot of fashion. I couldn’t believe my eyes when the men started strolling in well and truly before lunch. How could a market attract so much style? Was there a dress code of entry here? This market for me is the new place to spot the trend setters.
Maltby Street Market
The main section is The Ropewalk, just off Maltby Street, where there’s a full street of stalls: burgers, waffles, French cheeses, a couple of wine bars, a gin place and a few interesting antiques sellers to nose around. Tozino, a tapas place along here, is meant to be excellent and is open beyond the market’s core hours of Sat 11am–2pm.
There was lots of hat fashion but the dominant one was the beret. Vintage, beige and anything french was simply a statement. The men wore it with pride and confidence.
Whether is was the trench or tweed coat anything blue or grey, the guys certainly opted for the tight fitting look. No matter how cold it was on that day. They all understood one thing. It’s about layering your clothes to keep you warm and looking very stylish.
Good to see the scarves out in force. Nicely presented, not a thing out of place. Whether is was grey or scarves with patterns, the chunky scarf certainly was the popular one.
Nice to see updated eyewear on the men. Brown and black were the dominant colours. The square shape was popular. A vintage flare certainly completed their look. They looked very smart, sophisticated and trendy.
