In Paris this week visiting all the big tailors, interviewing Jean Grimbert of Arnys and looking at slightly odd watch straps. Look out for posts over the next few weeks.

Below, my Wilfrids from Pierre Corthay (slightly dusty from the Tuileries Gardens) sit below cream Bresciani cotton socks and cream linen trousers. And beside my trusty Alfred Dunhill briefcase. It’s amazing how much you can get in there.
