A question a bit out of context, but I saw your review of the Oscar-outfits and came to wonder:

Would you ever consider wearing patent evening pumps with an "ordinary" dark suit at a party? Or would you reserve it for black and white tie?

Kind regards

Dear Rasmus,

Personally, I wouldn't normally think of wearing patent evening pumps with anything other than black or white tie. Not because of a 'rule' but because I think, aesthetically, they would look out of place in a 'regular' outfit, even if one is wearing it in the evening.

Hello Winston,

I'm a New Yorker who has followed your blog for sometime and being an Anglo-phile / American classic aesthete (think Polo / Ralph Lauren) I must say your ensembles look thoroughly British and very refreshing.

Keep up the great posts!

Good day Winston!

I noticed you have begun to wear T-shirts over your shirts and under the jacket. This is an entirely new concept to me! You might want to explain how the idea came about.

Felicitations on your blog!

I´m sorry, I forgot to ask on my last comment regarding the T-shirts you wear over your shirts. Would these be long-sleeved? And are these cotton?

Thanks for your words. Glad you enjoy it!

Essentially, the idea of the t-shirt is to wear a light weight crew neck garment - a crew neck sweater is thicker and more intrusive as a garment. I like the different colours of t-shirts. Some of them are long, some short sleeved. Needless to say, I try not to expose arms at any point.
