I see them running around the room, with Hall chasing and Jagger screaming in fear. Maybe a whip crack or two.

No need to say more. This remains the principal mode of contact with women for several members of teh StyleForvm.

btw, am I right to recall that there were at least two incarnations here? The first, Nutters, was the partnership w/ Edward Sexton; Tommy Nutter came later, I think. It also cheers me to see mention of Donaldson, Williams & Ward.

That's correct, after Tommy and Edward parted company Tommy went to Kilgour's as a director and then opened under his own name in Savile Row. Edward then left Nutters (To be run by Joe Morgan and Roy Chittleborough) to assume his own identity also in the Row.

For those of you interested, I've just posted on our blog, Steed's View, about the the first Nutters suit made in 1968.

Thanks Edwin. How did Tony King come to that suit?

It was actually made for him, as he was a very good friend of Tommy. He is involved in the music business and had mutual friends such as The Stones, The Beatles and Elton John etc.

Its purely coincidence actually if it exists at all. Timothy Everest who worked for Nutter and was a huge fan of his interviewed me in the grey suit which you think looks very Tommy Nutter like. I got the job but the firm wasn't for me and I had sort of decided in my own mind to go it alone.

Im more influenced by people like Yves saint Laurent and Hardy Amies or to a degree 90s Prada. I really think of my design aesthetic as sort of conservative but quite neat and minimal, its flamboyant in terms of the quality of the cloths perhaps even though this may be a charcoal grey. Im really not trying to promote a rock n roll image in my clothes or myself.

The relationship between myself and Rory Duffy has been likened to Nutter and sexton which is very flattering. Often the best tailors need to be in a basement doing the work and someone else has to deal with the clients otherwise it can very quickly become unmanageable.

She was nude. But Will, surely you remember what you were wearing.
Please share it with us so that we will be appropriately attired should
the occasion arise.

I tend to think of the definitive Amies look as the suits he did for 2001 (at the beginning). Very clean looking.

Cross post from the Thrifting thread...

Often, when and where you least expect it, you come across a gem.

I was outside my usual thrifting areas and had the chance to visit a few shops I'd never been to. One was a tiny store front that was literally stuffed floor to ceiling with so much...stuff...that the woman at the door warned me not to trip as I walked through the shop. Deep in the back was a rack of men's suits and literally the last one on the rack was this...




I've thrifted more than a couple Saville Row items but I never thought I'd see a Nutter. I'm guessing its from is RTW line, but a Nutter nonetheless. How it made its way to a tiny thrift store in a dying, semi-rural town in W. Pa, I'll never know.
