The Uniqlo Suit
I recently wrote an article for Mensflair focusing on an enquiry from a reader about finding a £100 suit. In my research, I discovered this wonderful dark grey flannel wool suit (98% Tasmanian wool) in the excellent Uniqlo.
Looking past the cheap buttons and ludicrously long trousers, I squinted at the attractive silhouette in the changing room mirror that was available for the surprising sum of £110. It was not a difficult purchase.
After some trouser alterations by Graham Browne in the City (turn-ups added - cost: £10) I removed the belt loops, changed the buttons to ones of real horn (cost: £10) bought from Macculloch & Wallis and sewed on buttons to accommodate braces.
