When Dapper Meets Design.
Palmer Mutandwa is one of Melbourne’s best dressed gentleman, known for his eclectic style which is elegant and sophisticated, he can often be spotted in a tailored suit and Panama hat complemented by his favourite pair of Italian leather loafers.
A founder of Men’s lifestyle brand, Button Brothers, Palmer and photographer Tri Nguyen spent the day exploring their city in the MINI Clubman - the ultimate gentleman’s car.
The high-quality craftsmanship and leather detailing synonymous with the MINI Clubman, also underpins the Button Brothers craft, aiming to enhance their customer’s style with high-quality pieces that showcase the same ideals of artistry and precision. Of his own style, Palmer says ‘My personal style is sartorial with a touch of sprezzatura. The sartorial nature of my style means I like to stay within bounds of tailoring but with an added touch of nonchalance.
When it comes to his top piece of styling advice for other men, Palmer believes the answer is always ‘Keep it simple and don’t try too hard’, a philosophy that’s behind MINI Clubman’s simple sophistication.
The MINI Clubman was made for the contemporary gentleman and Palmer couldn’t agree more ‘Besides the unexpected power, I was impressed with the leather details within the car, The Union Jack stitched into the headrest was an absolute standout!’.
