History lesson (from July 2011): I still get messages/emails about the pros/cons with MTO v bespoke.

Friday Business Casual in Blaze Orange

5th day of rain - EXERENT!

Details | Umbrella - Fox for GW | Pocket Square - Drake’s Irish linen | Jacket (part of suit) - @PJohnson in Loro Piana for GW | Shirt - @AscotChang in Thomas Mason for GW | Tie - Hermes knit tie | DubMunks - Edward Green “Westminster” Mole Suede for @LeatherSoul for GW | Bag - Ettinger for @TheArmoury

* take note of the shape & undisturbed line of the jacket even whilst holding up an umbrella.

There is nothing wrong with MTO if the tailor/fitter knows what he is doing which is unfortunately a rarity today. I have seen more “car wrecks” from E. Zegna “Su Misura” than a roller derby & they average more than 3 times the cost of a P Johnson MTO commission.

Still raining denim & shell

| Fox umbrella | bespoke OCBD | Rag&Bone RAW jeans | LeatherSoul colour 8 Alden shell Cordovan “LongWongs” |

L.U.G.B Naval Battle Map Umbrella by London Undercover

From the end of the 17th century until well into the 20th century, the British Royal Navy was the most powerful navy in the world, playing a key part in establishing the British Empire. The L.U.G.B Naval umbrellas take inspiration from these services and the imagery and dress that surround them. Water & Weather – an ongoing Battle.
