Whilst Bristol's Local Tailor had vowed not to dress his daughter in bespoke or branded finery - or write anything about parenthood for that matter - there has been an ever-increasing dent in my collection of pocket squares that cannot be ignored any longer.
Grace Blake, pictured, started teething rather early in life - she's only 4 months old now - and, as any new parent will know, teething involves an inordinate amount of dribbling.
This dribbling, which often resembles foaming at the mouth, can leave a fresh baby-grow sodden by breakfast time! So, in an effort to keep our daughter dry, and afford her a modicum of comfort and, dare I say it style, we tied one of A Suit That Fits pocket squares around the butter-soft rolls of Grace's neck to stem the flow. These particular pocket squares are cut from 100% Egyptian shirting cloth and are provided with the compliments of A Suit That Fits when purchasing a shirt.
The 'Dribble Square', as it is now affectionately known, has become a permanent fixture in Grace Blake's already burgeoning wardrobe. Whilst Grace's parents may not have spoiled her sartorially, her Aunty Tara has bestowed upon her a wardrobe of cute clothes that Grace's cousin, Inca - born 6 months before Grace - has now grown out of and so Grace has inherited hand-me-downs to last an 'infinancy' and been afforded not only style but a dressing regime to give her father a run for his money!
With so many colourways and patterns in A Suit That Fits range of shirting cloths, there is a Dribble Square for every occasion. Whether lounging at home, taking a stroll in the park or watching Idles - Grace's favourite band - there is a Dribble Square to suit, ahem.
I'm sure Dribble Squares will be a Bristol fashion accessory of choice before long, so place your orders early to avoid disappointment. And remember, whilst I am considering registering Dribble Squares as a Trademark, they are only available at this time from A Suit That Fits and come with a shirt. They can also be order separately in cotton, silk or satin.
Earlier this month we saw our friends across the pond show off their sartorial glory at the Golden Globes.
We mainly saw an array of fantastic tailored (tuxedo in America). Below are a few of my favourite suits.
Chris Plummer, who won best performance of an Actor in Beginners, opted for a very traditional midnight blue dinner jacket with peaked lapels.
Peter Dinklage, who won best supporting role in Game of Thrones, had a fantastic bespoke all black dinner jacket with notched lapels. But opted for a more modern look with a black tie , rather than a bow-tie .
Adam Levine and James Valentine, of Maroon 5, looked equally dapper. Levine sported an all black dinner jacket with white shirt and black bow tie. Valentine went for a black dinner suit with peaked lapels and a blue shirt with bow tie .
Our very own home grown comedian, Ricky Gervais presented the whole ceremony and wore a loud maroon number with peaked lapels. He went for an open shirt look for the evening.
