Richard To The Rescue – The Magic Powers Of Suede

Bespoke customer and aficionado Michael Burt is in touch to alert Richard to his qualms about outshining his less immaculately dressed superiors in the workplace:

“I have just started a new job in media. Everyone is really casual, but I like to dress smartly, in a suit. Is it bad that I look smarter than my boss? I don’t want to be the guy who everyone thinks is a bit of a dress snob and a knob.”

Over, without further ado, to Richard:

“You can see in this lovely sketch that Irene did of me pondering your question in the bespoke store that I am wearing a t-shirt. And were you able to see my feet, you would also see that I am wearing a pair of our new, nicely understated deerskin Paragon sneakers. With a smart grey flannel suit, Michael. With a suit.

Smart doesn’t mean stiff, so my advice is that you continue to turn out as you like to in a suit and so remain true to your sensibilities, but effortlessly ease into your new environment by dressing it down a bit with sneakers or a polo shirt or a t-shirt or light Merino crew neck, for example.

And, finally, don’t forget the magic powers of suede shoes, which automatically soften any look. As do suede sneakers, doubly so.”

Got a clobber conundrum of your own? Why not let Richard know about it and see if he can ride to your rescue?

On The Tiles

Our softly sun bleached Dandy Kim collection looks to ‘50s Havana; the sights, sounds and colours all gave life to it.

As featured on a couple of pocket squares (one of which can be seen here) and a knit (bottom right) our deco flower was inspired by the colourful, handmade encaustic tiles (pictured are a couple from our SS17 moodboard) which have become synonymous with Cuban architecture.

Originating in Spain, the tiles were first imported into the country towards the end of the 1800s. As their popularity grew, Cuba became home to the then largest tile factory in the world, La Cubana, which was founded in 1903.

Fireworks In Lithuania

Lithuania is the only place to be on September 24th for fireworks fanciers.

Were you attending and wondering what to wear, Irene has put together a practical, adaptable look (and, as you can see, illustrated it) that we think will work very well for the occasion. A rust Harris tweed jacket, a 30-gauge Scottish-made cashmere polo, slim Japanese selvedge denim jeans…
