Tweed on Film

During the early decades of cinema, tweed on film was just as ubiquitous as it was in real life, often worn by honest, homespun gentlemen of taste. Think James Stewart in one of several tweed suits during George Bailey’s fateful Christmas Eve in It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) or John Wayne’s Irish tweed sport jacket … Keep Reading

The Chap Olympiad 2018

The Chap Olympiad 2018 took place on Saturday 14th July in Bedford Square Gardens, Bloomsbury.

The Mirabelle

The Sussex seaside town of Eastbourne is an odd place for a gentleman, especially two chaps dressed as if auditioning for a regional theatre production of Death in Venice. My dining companion and I shuffle along the seafront, bright linen suits attracting the glare of the sun; the confused glances of the mostly octogenarian citizens … Keep Reading

Father’s Day Gift Offers

On Sunday 17th June, fathers across the land will be coaxed out of their sheds to celebrate Father’s Day. This process can be difficult, for the natural inclination of dads is to remain in their sheds all day, pretending to fix lawn mowers while smoking their pipes and wondering whether to grow a moustache. You … Keep Reading
