Cordings silk cartridge tie with a Holland & Holland pocket square. I endeavour to illustrate this combination when wearing one of my Huntsman suits over the colder months ahead. The bronze I gave to my wife on the birth of our son George. The rosewood writing box was a gift from my mother on my 16th birthday.
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.
This is my first Gucci belt from 1976. I still have it, but regrettably, slightly restricting.
I have a bespoke Huntsman suit made of this unusual weave. I will be commenting on the suit and the appropriate accessories later this summer.
In preparation for 12th August. Selection of my shooting cravats. Cashmere Purdey, silk Hermes, silk Tootal, wool Shep Miller. Displayed on the ‘Monarch’ seat made by Howell.
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
