What did I say about double breasted tuxedos!? They look great and they are returning to popularity. Fresh off his visit to the US last month, where he dressed better than most Americans; Prince Harry is back in London attending the Walking with the Wounded Crystal Ball Gala.
And he looks fantastic in his double breasted tuxedo. A classic 6x2 button jacket with jetted pockets and no flaps, the cut is clean and classic. He wears it casually, as if he is just buttoning it for the first time.
Being royalty means having some of the best tailors at your disposal, but understanding that a double breasted tuxedo needs to fit like a glove is something everyone can have. .
And what better setting, ney, and conditions to give my old faithful Tweed an outing and show all those hi-tec wet weather wearing festival goers that tweed really is the way forward.
you see breathes, just like anything . However, owing to the inherent qualities of the weave and thickness of cloth, it doesn't let water through.
I have two patch pockets, instead of jetted pockets, which are perfect for carrying a pint of the local ale - Wye Valley Brewery, Butty Bach - a fantastic summer pint! And as the other festival goers dived for shelter, Saffron Darby and I did what we came to do stroll around Hay-on-Wye oblivious of the misery of cold, wet weather and sweltering, sweaty wet weather attire of our fellow man.
The latest addition to the Darby Minns clan is still perhaps a little young to be sporting bespoke Tweed - though I'm sure it won't be long - but the inclement weather did mean that the pavements were pretty much devoid of pedestrians and the cafs full of Toast bedecked women and well turned out chaps and so it felt as though we had Hay to ourselves!
So you can imagine my delight when I was approached in the Castle Bookshop by a bohemian young lady by the name of Rosalind Jana,who, rather than being the best dressed bookshop owner I'd ever seen turned out to be a fashion blogger and Oxfam delegate who wanted to snap me not only for her fashion blog ClothesCamerasandCoffee.blogspot - 3 of my own personal pleasures in life - but also for Oxfams style column, no less?!
I was of course flattered to have been approached, nay, chosen by a memeber of the style police but moreover being considered by someone so young and so hip to have style.
But I am also relieved because it proves that style is not only timeless, but ageless and if one is able to find their look then they can be assured of their place in, if not in fashions hall of fame, then certainly Oxfams!
