Garmology: You’ve worn that before! – With Professor Andrew Grove

Andrew Grove is Professor of Fashion Design at the University of Westminster, London and curator of their menswear archive. He pops by to talk about moving to London as a young man, working with Alexander McQueen, being a  student while working in a sex shop, moving into academia as a lecturer, the one-upmanship of terrace culture, why bad taste needs to be collected and shopping for the Menswear Archive with a sack full of cash. Oh, and some more ideas on what makes a cherished garment!

You can find Andrew Grove’s website here and on Instagram as @prof.andrewgroves
