PARIS MENSWEAR - MANY HAPPY RETURNS
THE RETURN TO DOUBLE BREASTED CONTINUES
..and to best effect in textured and a naturally toned fabrication. Wide pants, low fastenings in glazed linens, slub linens and hop-sacks in neutral almost furnishing-esque fabrics are the way forward for elegant DB action. This is by Roland Mouret Mr. There is more to comment on from other Paris designers, however...
THE RETURN TO CLAPTON E5 IS COMPLETE. THANKFULLY.
Am plotted back in yard and on deadline for FT HTSI tailoring piece today so shan't be doing too much reporting yet. Endless receipts, loose dollars and euros litter the surface of my G-Plan like discarded betting slips, while in Kai Kristiansen chest of drawers my sunglasses, cufflinks and other finery look like there's been a ransacking by a picky magpie. This wont do. This cant last. Must file. Must pass.
In other Clapton news, it's also JW's birthday today. So many happy returns of the postcode to you matey. Last year's saw him wrestled in The Dorchester by Morrissey. A spot of Thai boxing with contemporary dancer Michael Clark down Hawksmoor later then perhaps? One can only hope.
TS is back in the home Metropolis.
