Starring in the Fall/Winter look book is the designer himself, Ian Russell. Special note: we’re digging his top knot.

The 27-year-old fashion blogger-turned-designer started the label “Is This Menswear?” backed in 2009 out of his hometown Victoria, Canada.

The designer’s aesthetic style gears toward urban utilitarian, exuding a vibe similar to some of the popular Japanese menswear labels. The first came to our mind was visvim.
