David Evans: With winter’s chilly grip upon us, I find I’m wearing a hat more. I’ve become very attached to a Christys Epsom fur felt snap-brim racing trilby. It’s not a name that trips lightly off the tongue, but it’s genuine rabbit fur and made in England. As you’d expect, the brim has the property … Keep Reading

It’s not a name that trips lightly off the tongue, but it’s genuine rabbit fur and made in England. As you’d expect, the brim has the property of snapping into position up or down as your sartorial inclinations take you from day to day. Christy’s Hats have been manufacturing hats for nearly 250 years and are still family-owned, selling under their own name and making hats in their Oxfordshire factory for other…

The Suits of Roger Moore

Roger Moore

Nick Guzan: Roger Moore may have only played James Bond on screen for twelve years (and, even at that, he’s the longest-serving 007 to date), but it was a role that he and his fans cherished for the rest of his life. Moore brought life into the Bond role, after a string of arguably uninspired performances in the later Sean Connery outings, who was tiring of the role he made famous, and Australian newbie George Lazenby. He also brought, for the first time, an individualistic sense of style that Moore himself had cultivated over his decades-long career. Moore was noted for…
