'A studied carelessness' - love it. The overcoat and sand or tan BD are superb, as are the flannels of the guy in the background. These were the pioneers (not the band) of the look we all love 78 years later.

Get rid of the waistcoat (vest) and it's perfection. (The guy could get in shape a bit too.)

I agree re. the kilties, also the cuffs are too small and the top button on the jackets would be better left undone. Still overall superb though. The collar roll on the blue BD is particularly good.

Monochrome (almost) perfection - the dash of colour with the tie and PS are superb. The only error is the lack of cuffs - I don't know what happened there.

A few details aren't perfect but essentially it's all here - flannels, tweed, loafers, OCBDs, foulard ties . . . Superb. Super elegant but with the relaxed flavour we all like.

Wow! I'm experiencing sensory overload. Looks like it all went downhill after the 40s.

Thread of the year. Thanks Armchaired.

^ wow that's really interesting,
the same writer turns up a few years later with a piece on the 'Italian look in London' , it gets quoted by Paolo Hewitt in one of his 'mod' history books.

Thanks to Carpu for finding this and putting it on Ivy Style. The tweed topcoat is outstanding.

The Shetland suit has a nice lapel width. Any narrower is unnecessary.
