Black Tomato meets Mr Porter

Welcome to The Insider Track.

At Black Tomato, we frequently explore the connection between travel and peoples’ passions and lifestyle choices.  We look to tastemakers from around the world.  How did they acquire their style? Where did they go? Where did they stay? What did they do? What experiences shaped that taste?

Style is derived from many stimuli but none more so than travel.

Who better to therefore collaborate with than MR PORTER.COM, the online retail destination for men’s style.  Through The Insider Track we will be bringing you a series of videos, travel guides and trips inspired by the designers and tastemakers who live, work and play in destinations all around the world.  Watch our first video of insider and designer Mr Greg Chait, of cashmere brand the Elder Statesman based in Los Angeles. Here he shares with us some of his favourite places in LA; where the Toronto born designer now calls home.

Combining this local insight with some of our own favourite places, hotels, undiscovered gems and insightful experiences we’ve created the perfect trip that takes in the very best of Los Angeles and California.  Watch the video, read the guide and be inspired and let us plan your next trip to California and LA.
