"This means they might not be for denim purists, as they won’t fade in the same way as raw or unsanforised jeans." For fellow readers who shy away from the once-washed rubato denim: I am no denim head, but during the last year I tried…
Hob-nail boots, pince-nez and Rubato denim – at the pop party
Hey Simon, is the Begg scarf in dark grey? Thanks
The Teba as substitute for a tailored jacket
I think my response to the situation is to alter how I'd wear a tailored jacket. Jeans, t-shirt, perhaps a scarf. Etc etc. However, I appreciate that also isn't for everyone! If I were to enter a situation in which a tailored jacket was just…
Thanks. BTW: Did you also try the chambray work shirt from rubato? https://www.atemporubato.com/products/work-shirt-in-light-blue-chambray
Indulgent Shawl Cardigan back in stock, with new black
Not a darker colour, but yes a different cloth. That looks too smooth and smart for a more casual jacket
If you only had five jackets: A capsule collection
I've only tried them once, but the quality seemed fine. None of the additions the Armoury have added to theirs, but the normal straightforward make.
Thanks, yes they are. It's interesting Jackson, this seems to split readers, as so many say they love that style of more casual jacket that still allows them to dress up. Perhaps it's driven by being a type of person, or in a type of…
Absolutely. If in doubt by the way, I'd go for navy always
No, sorry Michael. The crew was always much more popular, and easier to wear on its own too
Yes, except that the style there is different, much more western with the snaps and western yoke etc. Great, but more of a look than a simple workshirt with square pockets and regular buttons. And then there is wearing in. I think the denim sawtooth…
Yes I get the association and I think you're right Fernando. It makes a big difference when you've seen a few people wearing them in ways you like, and that feel relatable, and then also perhaps tried one on yourself
I think the point is that it helps if the clothes can put up with a little physical punishment, and then yes be fine with being washed often. A good chino or oxford shirt should be like that - better when it's been washed and…
A Dad in California: Styling with Davide of Ghiaia
No it isn't unfortunately
What is the quality of the OBs Teba,Simon? There are big reductions on their website?
Looks good. Bit of a Chairman Mao look.
This is the sort of jacket I struggle to see any place for, at least in my wardrobe. Seems like a bit of a halfway house to me. In fact, most of the jackets in your previous article demonstrating a range of casual jacket fall…
Really nice Simon, the black is a great addition. Love the way you've styled the black here and the RRL washed denim shirt is great. I'm be torn between navy and black, unlikely to happen for me this year but this beauty is firmly on…
Great article Simon and a cracking Speedmaster. This is one I hadn't seen before, I'm no watch expert nor primary enthusiast, like you though I do appreciate a nice watch, mainly from a design point of view. This 70's obscurity is a really cool one,…
My new watch: Why I bought a seventies Speedmaster
Hi Simon, any chance of a V neck revival?
Nothing against the RRL shirt but wouldn't it be the right time for you to try the black sawtooth westerner from Bryceland's that you were describing as not matching your warm colors wardrobe some time ago: https://www.permanentstyle.com/2019/03/brycelands-sawtooth-shirt-review-and-range-overview.html
There is something about that uninterrupted collar shape that reminds me of very cheap top coats with a similar design. they look just bad for me. I guess design is so much about culture and perception which can't be evaluated in a vacuum.
Whilst I like this aesthetic, I have to say it doesn't quite fit with my recollection of having children, and certainly young children. I think the biggest concern with young children is that cloths need to be machine-washable and washed regularly. Regretfully, despite liking quality…
I dimly recall Mark Cho saying they were mulling over the prospects of opening The Armoury in London - do you know if that's on the cards at all, Simon?
Actually yes Ian... Hopefully should be coming back in the Spring. We'll start building a waiting list soon
