Happy birthday

Throwing the king of all anniversary bashes, Mr Porter is commemorating turning five with a special birthday edit

Reaching a significant milestone is like attaining the Holy Grail when it comes to the competitive industry in the fashion world. As of yesterday, Mr Porter has officially turned five years old. Known as the presence that cut their teeth in shaping the definition of online retail for menswear, an extravagant party — including a birthday capsule collection, a dedicated publication in The Journal, and a spiffy bespoke car in partnership with BMW — will culminate in an exclusive cocktail gathering at London's Savile Club on Saturday.

While some of the revelry delights aren't within our reach ('tis unfortunate but true), the specially curated Mr Porter birthday edit, however, is available to all. Named collectively as The Fifth Anniversary Essentials, these pieces take inspiration from the present Mr Porter Essentials comprising of wardrobe must-haves of everyday staples the modern man should own.

Put together by the buy team, this 20-piece limited edition range will condense the best of Mr Porter's sleek aesthetic and signature classic colourways. Choice labels in the collection include Berluti, Gitman Vintage, Common Projects, and Maison Margiela to name but a few — and that certainly deserves cheers all around.
