David at Duncan Quinn

David works at Duncan Quinn, which makes Duncan pretty lucky.

David is really passionate about clothes and style. When I stop by the shop he always takes such pride in pointing out the new stock, not so much as a sales thing but just to talk about what they are doing and what is coming up. Enthusiasm is such an important part of being a salesman, actually the title “salesman” doesn’t seem to fit David. He is more like a guy that would be great fun to go shopping with but he can only do it at Duncan Quinn.

David’s new fascination is eveningwear during the day. It might not work for everyone (or anyone else) but he is a young guy in the City, works in the shop all day and then goes out all night. Nice life if you can get it.

    Wow. That’s not a look that anyone else I can think of has the flair to actually pull off, but he wears it very well.

    Torben, try, a site run by Thomas Mahon, a bespoke tailor who works out of Savile Row. The man’s a mine of information on mens tailoring and fashion, as well as offering an insight into the arcane world of the ‘gentlemens tailor’. Well worth a look.

    the scarf is quite lovely!

    And maybe it’s not a black eye isaid, but maybe just some bags under his eyes from “working all day and going out all night”!

    *laughs* I’m jealous!

    He looks great. I’ve talked with Brian at DQ and they all seem like a really friendly staff. Nice to see you profile Duncan Quinn….I have quite a few of his shirts and they are all phenomenal. It would be nice to see a blog on his shop with more pics.

    I love his hair. I can't decide about the scarf. I want to love it.
