Today classic English style and tailoring enjoy worldwide adulation. And when it comes to top-drawer tailoring, there is nobody quite like Jeremy Hackett.
Hackett takes us on a Grand Tour of an appealing world of Bentleys and polo, bicycles and picnics, bow ties and Sussex Spaniels, top hats and bespoke luggage. Along the way, he muses on sartorial codes: why plus twos beat plus fours, the ideal length of sock, the pros and cons of cufflinks and the art of monogramming.
Brimming with anecdotes and observations as sharp as his suits – as well as more than a glancing nostalgia for an age when a chap knew how to dress for an occasion – this is a book for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
