In response to a couple of requests from readers, here is that photograph from the Asprey workrooms in colour.
Navy cashmere jacket from Solito. Dark-brown horn buttons that I bought myself from Weldon’s (Italians rarely have matte horn). One-button cuff – a rather old traditional style in Naples for sports jackets.
Denim shirt by Satriano Cinque. We’ve lengthened the collar slightly on my button-downs from Luca at Satriano, so that they both curve nicely around the jacket collar when unfastened, and around a tie when fastened. The Thomas Mason denim has pin dots, and is from a range designed to fade with washing. It’s not quite stone wash, but it’s a start.
Fresco trousers are my old Gieves & Hawkes ones cut by Kathryn Sargent when she was there. Still the perfect formal summer trouser. And sunglasses from Cutler & Gross.
