The saddest photo we have seen of you. Still a very good arrangement of
colours. I think a felt waistcoat
would have looked better.

Very suitable dress for the country

Exquisite jacket.

Can you recommend any shops in London that offer a wide selection of rtw sports jackets?

I think the cardigan looks great but would have preferred to see you without the hat...

I just have a question for you regarding tailors. I have just been to be measured for my first bespoke suit and I wanted to have a double breasted waistcoat with the suit but they said it was old-fashioned and not very flattering and that I should get a single breasted. My first reaction was that I was paying for the suit, so I should get what I want but now I'm not so sure and might change my mind. Do you think I should listen to my tailor or go with my first choice?

Thanks so much for your help.

A felt waiscoat would have completed the look splendidly. I was actually rather sad on that day, but I can inform you that I have brightened up since then.


A most forthright style. You must be a New Yorker...

John K,

As soon as I saw your comment, I knew there was an article in there. Look out for a piece on tailors and their advice on Mensflair.com.
