This one from High Snobiety, brother to Selectism. I find it interesting how much more casual a hat looks if the brim is just turned down at the back.

I always liked the seriousness of this blog with a focus on the products, not the “Hey look at me!” you see on so many so called fashion blogs.

Regards,

When an outfit is so well put together, you are more than entitled to show everybody Mr Crompton.

I run a tiny blog (Sharper Living) and I get similar requests, so I can only imagine the demand for yours.

It’s nice to see your clothes in action!

Also, this is making me really want a hat, but at 21 I think it might look a little contrived, even if it is practical…

Hal

Absolutely. And, Umer, wearing a hat for practical reasons, as Simon suggests, is not in the least contrived.

simon wondered if the polo coat you had made at graham browne has seen much wear by you since you had it made? thinking of getting something similar & wondered how much it was at GB? The only other place ive seen them RTW are Brooks but quite expensive @ ~£1500 so thinking may have to go the bespoke route.

in previous posts you said camel hair wasnt a hard wearing material .. wondered what your experience has been since?

thanks

Simon I appreciate these outfit pics. It’s good to have a mix of posts.

I have to say, the mix of brown cashmere and that hat with the navy suit is such an elegant combination. The Sartorialist clearly missed out.

Hi Simon,
Your post reminds me of this one: http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/2010/01/tip-of-hat.html

Well done Simon!

Agreed. Great look. And don’t be put off publishing occasional pics when you are out and about, used judiciously they add depth & background to what you are saying and remind us that you generally live what you espouse.

Even though I too had a gentle pop at the ‘shawl’ effort 😉

The pocket square in this photo is very striking. Whose is it from?
