The smartest way to carry your phone gentlemen?

The answer is to wear a vest as it is known in Savile Row. A waistcoat to most. Regrettably with central heating and a more relaxed look nowadays the 3 piece suit is not as popular as it once was. The top pocket of a four pocket vest is by far the most practical and comfortable way to carry a smartphone upon your person. No unsightly bulges in trouser or jacket pockets one so often sees. Furthermore the top vest pocket is the most secure place. I prefer to slip my phone into my top right pocket. Furthest away from my heart. Those with implanted heart hardware may wish to consult their physician. Furthermore, calls are easily identified by ring tone and/or vibration.

So perhaps the vest (waistcoat) may make more of a return. 

This one pictured is a vest from one of my Huntsman of Savile Row 3 piece suit collection. Made in 1986 and still in perfect condition.

Today’s assemblage 

The weather is turning to autumn. It’s time to consider heavier clothing. Discard the linen trousers and chinos for corduroy and super 100’s. Today I am wearing a Huntsman wool jacket with Turnbull & Asser orange corduroy trousers. The orange cords are very much the accent piece and pick up the orange fleck in the jacket. The shirt is T M Lewin, the pocket square is silk and made by Holland & Holland. The belt is brown suede made by Ermengildo Zegna. The shoes I am wearing today are suede Edward Green. These are not in the picture. The gold cufflinks are a family piece.

Huntsman Islay Tweeds

This photo shows 3 cashmere jumper sleeves with Huntsman Islay tweed patches. The top, purple patch, I have matching shooting breeks and waistcoat in. I will be wearing these later in the year during the season. The bottom left shows a patch on a pink Turnbull & Asser cashmere V neck. The bottom right patch is on an oatmeal cashmere V neck William Evans St. James.
