Matt Berninger from The National was over today, and had an empty pocket, so I felt compelled to give him a PTO Gentlemen's Association pocket square. He's a little elevated on that poof, but not bad for a first-timer.
Put This On visits London to look at the ways it has been shaped by (and has reinvented) its menswear traditions. We visit W. Bill, the legendary tweed vendor in a basement just off Savile Row. We talk with the painter and musician Ian Bruce about how he's reshaped the legacy of the SoHo dandy. We visit the Drake's factory to see how a tie is made. Then we go to Savile Row, and chat with tailor-owner Richard Anderson and owner-designer Patrick Grant about the tension between old and new in the world's original tailoring street. Plus Dave Hill offers his thoughts on sport sunglasses in Rudiments.
Just watched the last two episodes (not sure how i missed the first one), they have gotten really great. A great blend of information and entertainment. It really hits the perfect pitch. Can't wait for more.
