Bright Socks, Wholecut Loafers & DB Overcoats….My Kind of Outfit!

It’s been awhile since I have showed you one of my daily outfits to allow you all a chance to critique me, mainly because lately I simply can’t be asked to take photos of myself, especially since my time at Gieves & Hawkes these days is completely accounted for, down to the last second! But every now and then when I manage to put something together that I personally find appealing, I figure, ‘what the heck, take one of your famous blurry self-portrait shots for them!’ So I did, mainly to show off my new overcoat for winter, a proper overcoat that I feel proud to have….too often I spent too little on coats and never really had something that not only looked elegant and stylish but something that was timeless, that if I looked after, I could pass down to my children, and possibly further. I am proud of it and I love wearing it, particularly because I spent a minor fortune on it. But like a good shoe, I look at it as a good investment, something that will live on as all trends die…..

Oh and if you fancy, you should check out a nice article that The Mitchelli did on yours truly…. (click on link)

    Hi Shoe Snob,

    That was very snobbish, mean the coat, great looking overcoat. How do I get my hands on one like that from G & H’s. What is the price tag? MTO or bespoke?

    Regards

  • Alex B – Thanks my friend….
    hopefully we can get you into a pair of them!

    Kole – they did a good job designing this one!

    Cloudberry – thanks! The scarf is vintage….got it at a frock show in Brighton, UK

    Alain – Thank you sir…if you click on the link attached to the word Gieves & Hawkes, when I list the articles of my outfit, that will take you straight to their website where you can buy it….it was £800 and is RTW…

    Hi “The Shoe Snob”,

    Happy New Year to you Sire and thanks for tip on the G&H overcoat. I contacted them a few days after Xmas and the coat was on sale (was not aware of that), needs some alterations (opening the cuffs). I got it for half the price almost (450 including cuffs alteration and postage). I am looking forward to it. Thanks to you.

    Best of the New Year and keep the good work.

    Alain De Rothenburg.

  • Alain – Happy New Year to you too my friend!! I am glad that I was able to inspire you to get such a beautiful coat, and I hope that you wear it in good health!! Thanks for sharing!
