Manton in Richmond? After recovering from my initial astonishment - I knew that I definitely would be taking advantage of the opportunity to support the cause.
Just returned from Beecroft & Bull where I had the pleasure of meeting the man himself. Had my copy of The Suit inscribed - and passed a very pleasurable hour or so chatting about matters sartorial.
It will not surprise regular readers of this board that manton (1) could not have been more gracious with his time and sharing his expertise and (2) was splendidly turned out in a charcoal grey worsted double window pane Shattuck DB that fit better than anything else my untutored eye has ever seen (though a medwards sighting at Sky Valet came close).
Thanks to manton for stopping by.
