giantbeard replied to your post: I’m going to ask this anonymously, even though I wouldn’t mind asking with my name, but I want to know, what do you look for in a girl? and Do you see yourself in a long term relationship?

Always be ready to fall in love….despite your best laid plans!

From your mouth to God’s ears! I do spend a rather unhealthy amount of my time with my nose in a book. A little bit of love might do me some good.


My trusty straw Boater from Olney via Tails & the Unexpected, not an easy hat to get away with, but sometimes you just have to go with what you love!

Worn with one of my favourite suits, a blue hopsack, made bespoke for some fellow in the early 70’s, by Royal Warranted Shirt makers & Tailors, Thresher and Glenny. Striped linen shirt with GIANTbeard spearpoint collar, Vanda Fine Clothing shantung silk tie, a linen silk DB waistcoat ( more appropriate for morning wear, but why should wedding guests have all the fun? ) & my Loake ‘Lincoln’ Tassels .


Photographed, wearing one of my Cad & the Dandy suits, by Khalil Musa at No.1 Savile Row for the launch party of Rose Callahan & ‘Natty’ Adams’ new book 'I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman’

( more portraits from the night can be found on the Gieves & Hawkes FB page, as well as Rose’s wonderful photographs on her blog, Tumblr & Flickr pages)
