Here we have a Caruso cotton jacket with blue fleck. Ralph Lauren linen trousers. Dege & Skinner double breasted linen waistcoat. Turnbull & Asser shirt with collar pin. Ferragamo silk tie and Hackett silk pocket square. Not in picture tobacco suede Edward Green tassel loafers.
My Tuczek opera pumps. 17 Clifford Street would date these between 1938 – 1966. Used regularly, but very gently! About a size 9 1/2. Kept with trees and dust bags.
I have never come across another pair of these, and consider them to be fairly rare. Would welcome any comments or insight into Tuczek opera pumps.
I am giving some consideration to two days approaching us in our sartorial calendar. The first being national bow tie day on 28th August. The second is national cravat day on 18th October, 2017.
I will be supporting both occasions in a customarily manner, as one would expect.
Furthermore, I will be taking guidance from Sutton as to matching cravats and self-tie-bow-ties ( don’t know of any other permutations) with pocket squares.
Finally….. remember this…… fashions fade…. style is eternal
Hacking out kit – well worn Huntsman riding breeches, made 1948 for R S Anderson, as detailed on the Huntsman label. John Lobb boots bespoke made 1957, and Purdey linen socks bought new.
Made in 1957 within 3 weeks including the lasts. Refurbished by Lobbs for my fitting in 2012
One of my many pairs of bespoke shoes I will be sharing with you. The pair pictured here has original trees and monogrammed dust bags. The laces are leather too. I will combine these with a tweed suit later in the year for full affect.
