Still fannying about writing up LC:M for mens SS13 report, but due to PR based mix-up, have ended up looking at Rake AW12 images again. Gazing in fact. Loving Rake for AW12 (click). Their tailoring's Champions League material these days. The cut is spot on blah blah, but this time note, both those first jacket's materials are utterly brilliant. Grey herringbone and a sort of tawny, minky mélange colour flannel. Rake are all about a bit of Mélange. It's official.

Saw Clive Darby, founder of Rake the other day in the street and he called my roll neck mélange. Will snap and show it later, but it too is a minky, tawny, mottled affair. Found self not in HQ this a.m, so improvised: I've mélanges roll-neck with marl joggers (caning those this week) and the Asics Piranha shoes, marl sweat as shoulder sweater then added DAKS house check scarf to travel back East in and blow me if it's not a new look. Seeing it as film director post work-out relaxes between mid morning art direction meetings, sort of stance. Gotta have one of those these days, no?

Gonna come back and make more salient point about the new look and mélange action as it happens. Hope that'll do for now.

Stubbs is out in The Metropolis*
