Vintage Omega Manual Wind
A vintage inspired Semi-Formal(ish) outfit today, making use of this linen & silk blend DB waistcoat, swap out the unstructured whipcord sports coat for a ‘Stroller’ and it would have been appropriate Formal day wear for the city back when dress codes where still enforced.
I’ve been looking at formal day wear, or ‘Morning-Dress’ recently as I’ve been trying to help a friend get kitted out for his wedding next month, I love all of the variation that used to occur within this apparently ridged set of dress rules. It’s a real shame that all you really see now are poorly fitted hire clothes in horrible, lightweight, shiny fabrics, usually paired with matching satin ascots & pocket squares.

This beautiful checked tweed has been made for the lovely chap who runs MelancholicEuphoria by the talented folks over at Timothy Everest’s bespoke shop in Elder Street, East London. Cut by Fred Nieddu & tailored by Annika Casswell, it looks great, beautifully structured and full of character.
