Great photo, Scott! I like the colour of this young gentleman’s double-cuffed shirt and tie. Englishmen are usually very creative with their shirts and ties; not so with their suits, which retain sober patterns and colours.
But as far as “English gentlemen” go, this chap is a fairly mundane specimen who exhibits a classic City style. I’m sure you’ll find more typically English gents out there. I’m referring to the Englishmen decked out in tweed, tattersall, knit tie, v-neck jumper, quilted jacket, Barbour jacket, cord trousers, brown brogues, etc.
Sart you should see my father! We live in London and he would be great for your blog, he borders on eccentric but always gets his basics right. Seriously, as a graphic designer himself, he has such a brilliant understanding of aesthetics. PLUS he is quite the little man aswell, at about 5 4″. Come back to London soon and I’ll make sure he is somehwere you’ll be and looking sartorialist worthy.
Is this the purple and pink guy from a few posts ago? (or maybe all bald men with glasses look the same to me – that is worrying)If it’s him, then I love it – a complete change of style, looking great both times.
