Classic Combination

Alan and I have a long running joke - and like most jokes it is firmly rooted in a real desire to do so - that we should open a new store where we only sell variations of grey trousers, blue jackets and brown suede shoes.

I am, as I write this, in light grey Crispaire trousers from Ambrosi, a Dormeuil Tonik jacket in a vibrant junior navy, made by Liverano, and rich mid brown suede oxfords from Saint Crispin’s. While for many, a grey suit is their comfort clothes to face any situation in, for me this is it.

The beauty of this combination for me is that it can be a louche and effortless as jeans and a white tee, or as proper as a double breasted. With dark flannels and a rich navy twill, it has stroller like formality, but in a light grey fresco, blue linen and snuff suede sans socks it is perfect weekend dinner attire in the summer. The number of variations I have of this very combo is telling.

Who knows, maybe there is a pop-up concept in there - a new uniform for The Armoury.
