Today classic English style and tailoring enjoys worldwide adulation, and rightly so. Here, Jeremy Hackett, founder of the eponymous gentlemens outfitters and columnist for the Independent on Sunday, 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. Brimming with photographs, anecdotes and observations as sharp as his suits as well as more than a glancing nostalgia for an age when a chap really knew how to dress this is a book for those who know how to appreciate the finer things in life, and for would-be dandies everywhere., Today, classic English tailoring is admired worldwide, and rightly so. There is nothing quite like a pair of well-polished brogues, a tailored dinner jacket, or even freshly laundered striped cotton pajamas. And when it comes to tailoring, there is nobody quite like Jeremy Hackett. Hackett takes us on a grand tour of the world of Bentleys and polo, bicycles and picnics, bow ties and Sussex spaniels. Along the way, he muses on sartorial codes: why plus twos beat plus fours, the pros and cons of cuff-links, the art of monogramming, how one should dress for a shooting party, and how to get that bow tie looking "just so." Brimming with anecdotes and observations as sharp as his suits ”as well as nostalgia for a time when a man knew how to dress for an occasion ”this is a book for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
