Seyi Rhodes (in middle) filming for Unreported World wearing People Tree

Award winning British presenter and investigative journalist Seyi Rhodes talks People Tree through his five favourite Autumn Winter 2013 menswear pieces.

1. Daniel Grandad Top (in black and eco-white)

These were perfect to wear when filming ‘The Jungle Midwife’, the latest Channel 4’s Unreported World Documentary in Central African Republic. I couldn’t choose and got two in each colour! Also, I have to wear the same clothes when filming. They are far more versatile than I expected. It was very, very hot in Central Africa. I had to wash them a lot! But they kept their colour and shape really well, especially the softness. They were perfect for keeping cool in the day, in hot and humid jungle conditions, and they kept the mosquitos off!

2. Jamie Fleece Jacket £78

The Jamie Fleece is very comfortable and I like the relaxedness to its style. It’s nice for both casual and smart occasions.

3. Joshua Stripe Short Sleeve Tee £30

You can never go wrong with a stripey t-shirt, especially in 100% organic Fairtrade certified cotton!

4. Joseph Chunky Role Neck Jumper £175

5. Peter Jensen Men’s Jumper £78

This is jumper is fun! I like how People Tree collaborations enable designers to work with organic cotton. Organic farming is really important for the environment. It prevents water and soil contamination, preserves local wildlife and biodiversity and so much more.

You can watch Seyi Rhodes, in People Tree, this Friday 15th of November 2013 on Channel Four
