Sexton on Savile
THE DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO (SHIRTS THAT IS)
A rare sighting of a Prince of tailors, Edward Sexton, today on Savile Row. The man exudes sartorial verve. Style&Error salutes you. Edward was, of course, Tommy Nutter's working partner who cut the ground breaking styles that brought fashion to the Row and changed the shape of tailoring for both men and women for good.
Mick and Bianca's wedding 1971 in Nutter/Sexton.
Nutter and Sexton's work deserves a full post and will get one in due course. Meanwhile here's a nod to the man's style right now, specifically shirt and tie stance.
Note closed collar style and tie pin adornment, also original Michael Fish 'Kipper' tie. More on shirts shortly, pending piece in FT HTSI.
One minute I'm on the phone to Edward, hammering out a deal for 'our' new boy, (to be revealed later in week), turn the corner, and there he is, smoking in the 1960's style and looking double suave . It's this sort thing that I came to London for.
