This weeks StyleForum Challenge is the F*@k You, Casual Friday! Challenge.
Because being well dressed just looks better!
My trusty straw Boater from Olney via Tails & the Unexpected, not an easy hat to get away with, but sometimes you just have to go with what you love!
Worn with one of my favourite suits, a blue hopsack, made bespoke for some fellow in the early 70’s, by Royal Warranted Shirt makers & Tailors, Thresher and Glenny. Striped linen shirt with GIANTbeard spearpoint collar, Vanda Fine Clothing shantung silk tie, a linen silk DB waistcoat ( more appropriate for morning wear, but why should wedding guests have all the fun? ) & my Loake ‘Lincoln’ Tassels .
Yesterdays outfit brought to you by the warmest day of the year so far!
Uniqlo denim shirt & cotton/linen shorts, Gieves & Hawkes Panama hat a kind gift from Stephen, aka Malford of London
Brandishing my new James Smith & Son Whangee handled umbrella, a most generous gift from my wonderful friends for my birthday.
I was seriously tempted to go the full ‘London City Gent’ & don my bowler hat, chalk-striped navy suit and heavily polished black shoes. Restraining myself to this still over the top combination of checked three piece with DB waistcoat, made up by Cad & the Dandy, tab collar shirt and lovely double stripe shantung tie from Vanda.
An old Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit, from the Chester Barrie ‘Made in London’ era, worn with a Stetson Panama, Mtm shirt from Hemrajani Brothers with my ‘signature’ collar style & a bespoke neck tie
