Leslie Howard and Noel Coward, 1938.
- another shot from the archives, this time in my first suit from my current tailors, Cad & the Dandy. A made to measure three-piece, with a double breasted, shawl lapel waistcoat. High waisted, forward pleat trousers & a two button, half lined, peak lapel coat.
It was a massive step up in quality & value from my previous MtM ventures & despite the slightly too high, too narrow lapels, remains one of my favourite suits. C & the D have moved on now to providing all levels of service from Made to Measure to full Savile Row Bespoke.
They remain my Tailors.

A little Winter sun has given me all the excuse I need to break out my new summer suit, cut by John DeBoise at Cad & the Dandy.
Made up with a classic, structured shoulder, roped sleeve head, deep vents & generous, yet proportional, lapels & pocket flaps.
Cut from a handsome, lightweight, Prince of Wales check cloth, in a slubby linen & silk mix that I found in a fabric warehouse visited last year with Gerald & Diana of Vanda Fine Clothing, who, incidentally, made this tie for me.
