Hi, hi, hi my Style Merchants. Get involved with big, bold houndstooth check tailoring. Black and white houndstooth and Glen check cloth is double-exciting, channeling racy Seventies pizzazz, tradition and of course graphic, monochrome pattern. Stick it with other pattern for incendiary effects. Am on a houndstooth-cloth-hunt for a double-breasted, high-waisted suit to bust in Spring with silk print shirts or little intarsia knits. So far found nice choc/cream Ariston affair, though perhaps a trifle too gingham…unless on cut bias- but might be too, too much to ask of the cutter. #SpareUsTheCutter (click). Also got into a vintage looking hound’ from Solbiarti that’s almost a boucle. Graphic enough? Not sure. The plot thickens, the cloth quickens, but hound is already ahead of the pack. Stay tuned.
This is far from over. Cloth touching notes below.
This is a Tommy Nutter suit too, and its clearly a Glen check (Prince of Wales) and a houndstooth (that looks like a gingham) combo. Not actually exactly what after, but same look. Graphic, monochrome check. Roger? Check.

This aint black & white, obvs, but it is vintage looking story am chatting about, and on a SS18 Gucci blazer- But what I'm going mental for his the barked effect buttons. Too good, right? More of that later, as my jeweller and I been working on this idea for ages on gold rings. Shall pull fingers out double soon.
