    The Look goes on...

    With all the talk of M&S lately I dropped into my nearest branch yesterday - a fairly large one in Chelmsford, Essex. The first thing I noticed was that the menswear area had shrunk considerably. The contents were dire. Suits for just over £100. Dinner jackets rubbing shoulders with cheap...

    @cerneabbas I have a pair of 'puppy tooth' trousers from M&S Autograph range. A wool blend, flat front, with side adjusters and great fit. Don't see them nowadays and it really wasn't long ago... @Kingstonian I agree that we have all become so used to low prices on the high street or by...

    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014)

    WIWT - bespoke blazer and dogtooth trousers. Not an outfit to attract many 'likes', with its overtly 60's styling and 3-button coat :-D

    The Look goes on...

    Just bumping the thread and returning to our bespoke v. off-the-peg discussions. Today I am wearing an outfit that has probably been worth all the trouble with bespoke tailoring - and what a trouble! Actually, not really that bad. The blazer turned out pretty much as intended. I have always...

    The Look goes on...

    @Clouseau From the pictures you posted the MiE pair seem to have much nicer-looking leather and a more 'natural' treatment on the side of the soles - giving an overall impression of quality. Are the MiE option now discontinued? I think you may have told us before. If so, apologies!

    Friday Challenge: Dress Like a Star

    @Thin White Duke I normally use an Instagram app called ‘layout ‘ to achieve this.

    Guys - still a day or two to enter ... or maybe more.

    In the office and around today in Austin Reed blazer with Benson & Clegg fleur-de-lys buttons.

    I wonder what the point is... @cerneabbas - look away!

    The Look goes on...

    After about five commissions and three or four alterations projects I have just about got into that sweet spot with my tailor, Roger Crawford of Ilford, who I found thanks to a guide to mod tailors on Modculture a few years ago. But he is now on the point of retiring (may have already done so)...

    Well, I have just read your dissertation and what a cautionary tale it is @Thin White Duke ! My own experience has been similar, regrettably. I started off with MTM at the tender age of 14 when my dad took me to John Collier one Saturday morning in the spring of 1967. As a family we were to...

    They look dark navy to me too. They appear to be an Oxford version of these Santoni monks, which I have had for a couple of years:

    Friday Challenge: Dress Like a Star

    I have always been a big fan of Sir Laurence Olivier. I especially enjoyed his portrayal of the smooth, urbane but deeply-troubled Lord Marchmain in Granada Television's very faithful 1981 adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited. Mrs Knightley found the lovely portrait below and...

    Fascinating stuff @Thin White Duke Are you also a fan of other hat styles? @Jimmy Balantyne that Lock’s Panama sounds great! I have have been trying to recall some of the many hat etiquette tips I have read over the years. Do the old rules still apply in these anything-goes times?

    Thanks TWD! Actually, knowing that there would be few people around, I did wear it today for the office. It did a great job on what turned out to be the hottest July day on record in the UK (38.1c in Cambridge). Given my lack of experience with hats, I stopped in a deserted village to take...

    The Look Goes On has slipped off the first page, so time to try to crank it up... What about hats? In this very warm weather in northern Europe I have finally taken the plunge and bought a Panama. Never really part of the Look back in 1969, (apart perhaps for the 'pork pie') who has the...

    Mod to Suedehead

    I think you would be right about the date. 1971 was the year when most tailors were in a transition from the 60's style suit with narrow lapels and less 'shape' than was to come. I recall ordering a MTM suit in dark green mohair from Hepworths who were then collaborating with Hardy Amies and...

    I'm sure you will appreciate it at least as much as T Gage esq. !
