    I do love the 1930s and 1940s, but I seldom wear the period accurate pieces. Instead I opt for a modern interpretation of the style! Here are a few outfits from the weekend. None have any true vintage 1930's pieces apart from the tie.

    I actually wrote a guide to my style on my blog! I understand many people have misconceptions about vintage and vintage style, and I want to point out that you can still dress like it today without buying a wide legged, 1940's suit. You don't have to buy a fedora or wear clip on suspenders.

    It's not something ultra modern like the guys you see at Pitti Uomo, but it also isn't a straight period-accurate costume. I've been told by my peers that is like "a man from 1938 or a Lawrence Fellows illustration came to 2016". Give it a read and let me know what you think!

    Was there an actual occasion, or you just wanted to let your formal wear out for a day?

    I think my friend wore the stroller for a professional meeting before visiting me at Miler Menswear HQ. He let me know he would wear it so I joined with my morning coat for fun :)

    I don't know if it's a thing or not. I think it might be a satirical notion, making fun of those who keep their umbrellas tightly furled at all times, but I really don't know. In my case, specifically, when I bought this umbrella it was a rainy late afternoon in London when we stopped in at James Smith & Sons. It was still raining when we left the store and my wife, quite reasonably, asked me if I was going to open my brand-new umbrella. I replied something to the the effect of "are you kidding? This was way too expensive to get it wet!", and it sort of snowballed in a running joke between us ever since.

    Ha! Interesting. I actually don't own a full size umbrella and contemplated getting a solid stick one some time but I'm never in a situation when I would use it for its intended purpose. I keep a golf style umbrella in the car for emergencies and work wise I'm always travelling so if rain is expected I carry a shorty in my brief case. I saw a great example - possibly in Roetzel's book - of a S-A-B one with a leather handle and sterling silver trim that got me thinking!

    I have resigned myself to the fact that I can't be trusted with a nice umbrella. When I was younger I bought on several occasions beautiful, bespoke umbrellas. Only to misplace them or forget them on the bus/train/car/taxi. Now I only use garbage umbrellas that are handed out for free with corporate logos or novelty stuff. It's the same thing with gloves. Not that I wear gloves with corporate logos, but I do avoid spending money on expensive gloves because I know I'll be lucky if I manage to keep them for a whole winter without losing them.
