    Thought some of you might appreciate this glimpse of vintage fashion from England in the early 1940s:

    The couple getting married are my grandparents. I particularly like my grandmother's rakish hat and my great-uncle's (second from left) trousers. Think he was a pretty stylish young guy at the time.

    Don't know if anyone saw the Australian today, but they are doing some article tomorrow or on the weekend about "Australia's most stylish man" Charlie Pickering"... Apparently he is "effortlessly stylish"...

    Thanks! I ended up ordering a 3 roll 2 blue suit in Loro Piana Zelander Flower s120 3 ply weave indigo and myrtle berry with padded shoulders, side adjusters + internal brace buttons and burgundy lining.

    Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of detail - I wanted the cut, fit and material to speak for itself and my understanding is that the first MTM suit will very rarely be exactly right. I just ordered their basic configuration so no hand finishing.

    I'm going to wear the suit over the next couple of weeks to see if any adjustments need to be made but my impression from wearing it yesterday was that it was one of those things I might forget I was wearing if you know what I mean - it was pretty comfortable!

    Is it because he wears Jason's ties or he endorses themensshop.com.au?

    Great photo, Toby. Is the lady on the extreme left sporting a pocket handkerchief?
