Formerly senior fashion editor at i-D, Elgar Johnson is now the fashion director of Man About Town. Born in Peterborough, young Elgar left school to work for his father's heavy haulage company before embarking on a modelling career. During his modelling years, he was "adopted by Simon Foxton" and welcomed into his new family of Simon, Jonathan Kaye and Jason Evans. Obsessed with football, Elgar can be found on the terrace of his beloved Liverpool FC most weekends – a love that shows no boundaries (he has the Liverpool crest tattooed on his left leg). A sports fan through and through, he watches everything "apart from golf, which is boring". Elgar started his magazine career at i-D after "a meeting with Terry and Tricia in their very nice kitchen." His inspirations are "mum, dad, Simon, Peterborough, trucks, sport, both sisters [Vanessa and our Julie], London, tattoos, rough folk, posh people, Ray Petri and Andy Capp."
