What I Am Wearing


This is an older picture, when I was using my sub-par camera, but I wanted to show you a little bit more of how I sport the green shoes, as well as give off my Gordon Gekko, Wall Street look. On that note, there is yet another thing that I have become enamored with since arriving on Savile Row: the braces (suspenders), particularly these cotton one's that we sell at Gieves & Hawkes. Since working here, I have purchased all four of the colors that they come in: black, navy, light blue and red. While I tend to get the most use out of the navy, I still enjoy having my options and am looking to get them in green, purple and gray, when I can.

I have yet to venture off pairing my green brogues with anything other than navy, but there are an array of trouser colors that would suit a pair of green shoes. As I move into my new flat in London (as we speak) and finally have ALL of my stuff in one place, I will be able to pick my outfits a lot better, putting together concoctions that I have to imagine up!

Shoes: Bespoke, made by me, using Rothschild upper from G&G, and hand dyed by myself.
Trousers: H&M
Shirt: Primark
Tie: Hardy Amies
Braces: Gieves & Hawkes

  1. So I'm in love with suspenders. The only problem is, I can't find any that are inexpensive that are like yours. The ones that I have, have clip at the end! Where can I get some like yours?

  2. Francis - I really have no idea. It kind of depends on what you define as expensive? Mine, I believe, were 65-70 GBP if I remember correctly, which i guess is not that cheap. But other than Savile Row, I definitely do not know where to look, especially in the States? Sorry that I could not be of more help.

    Correction, they have a few here:
