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?

What to Wear and Where

Clignancourt market in Paris is commonly known as Les Puces (The Fleas), but to call it a flea market is to do it a disservice.

Were you visiting soon and wondering what to wear, we’ve put together a light and layered weather-watchful look that we think will work very well for the occasion.

At the Savile Row store and Richard James Online now.

What to Wear & Where – Can Carlos in Formentera

The party season is getting underway in Ibiza – fun and frolics of the first order from now until October.

If you’re visiting and feel you need a breather, we recommend a visit to the charming restaurant Can Carlos on the much smaller and correspondingly quieter neighbouring island of Formentera.

And if you were wondering what to wear, we’ve put together a perfect, coolly Mediterranean look of a bright turquoise whipcord jacket, a blue parrot pocket square, a pristine white mercerised cotton polo, a very summery pair of teal big jungle leaves trousers and a pair of super-soft off-white deerskin sneakers. No socks.

All online orders addressed to London postcodes – E, SE, SW, W, NW, N – made by 12 noon UK time from Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) can be delivered on the same day.
