Morning the sartorial massive. Awfully sorry about the lack of fresh postage. The whole postal service has gone to the dogs, particularly in Hackney. Meanwhile, while out for my morning constitutional this morning, noticed that The Three Sisters pub on Hackney Downs at the end of my road has been bought and sold and shall re-open with the name The Star by Hackney Downs. The large capital H in the middle of the logo worried me. It's funny how something wrong like that rings alarm bells. My instincts were correct about the new arrangement. The Hackney Star is a pub geared for 'grown up ravers'.

McQueen SS13 available in MTM

By that they mean stocky old bald ones in Ralph wind-cheaters, at best (click), full of gak, at worse. Yuk. How awful. Its not like there's even a rave scene any more. Such a shame as that pub could be lovely. They've named their pizzas after previously eminent DJs such as Pete Tong and Derek DeLarge. Regardless, am on deadline for something quite big so can not wallow in further anguish. The three piece suit above is by Alexander McQueen and is available Made-To-Measure from April. Liking what am finding out about MTM,  just gotta write it all down now. That's the tricky bit it seems.

Stubbs out.

PS. Look at the old Three Sisters sign. I've seen other work by this artist. They have no concept of light and dark when viewing someone, spend too long on the hair in detail and can't draw fingers. They also think a dash of perspective is gonna help somehow. I'm fascinated by the works. Give me this lot above the massive 'H' in a star emblem, I beg of you.
