Mr Porter is expanding its content range with a new podcast.

Called “The Details,” the new series “focuses on the little things that matter in the male wardrobe, delving into the history of zips, buttons, stitching, pleats, collars, and labels to tell a story about the evolution of contemporary menswear,” the online menswear retailer said in a statement.

Over the course of six 30-minute episodes, “The Details” takes listeners on a journey across the globe, from the cutting rooms of London’s Savile Row to a factory floor in Nara, Japan, with stop-offs in New York, Paris, Naples and beyond.

Hosted by writer and Mr Porter contributing editor Adam Welch, and with a historical backbone provided by Professor Andrew Groves of London’s University of Westminster, the series brings together interviews with collectors, enthusiasts, craftsmen and some of the most detail-obsessed names in contemporary fashion.

Interviewees for this season include designers Margaret Howell, Thom Browne, Emily Bode, Olivier Rousteing, Luca Rubinacci, along with art directors Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak of M/M Paris, Ian Bergin of Barbour, and Gaku Tsuyoshi of FDMTL.

The Mr Porter Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all major podcast providers, as well as through the refreshed Mr Porter The Journal.
