Feeling average, hence the faceless expression.
Notes: Suit & Shirt - P Johnson for GW, Knit Tie - E. Zegna, Lapel Flower - Strassburgo Tokyo, PS - Herringbone, Shoes - Edward Green “Dover” for Leather Soul, Bag - Ettinger for The Armoury
- I like to have my suits made so that I can wear them separately, & the patch pockets lends this flexibility
- Patch pockets come in all shapes & IMO Patrick has one of the most sensual pockets that have a certain allure that is not apparent at first.
- Also note that the hip patch pockets are curved downwards to the front so as to enable the placement of hands & when sitting down less chances of anything spilling out.
- Pattern matching is also important to not break the flow of lines, to be shaped to the wearer & especially in patterned cloth such as this “gun-check” from Loro Piana which is more complex than a Prince-of-Wales check.
- All my suits are 1/2 lined as I prefer to layer up if need be or as recently displayed, sweater as scarf around the shoulder
- The “Dover” is considered the quintessential show from Ed Green, down to the blind pig’s bristle ghost toe stitch & the 606 last (not too round & not too sharp). Can be dressed down with RAW denim & dressed up in a pinch - the ideal travel shoe.
- & I’m sure there are some rules broken in this, but at the end of the day it is also about balance & harmony & what feels right on the day..
