What I learnt from Yesterday. Looking at Vintage Clothing.

It's about a return to Individualism. Making something that will last and is passed down through generations. Good bye to the throw away! The piece that I found in Ludlow which is the basis for my inspiration for my made to order page boy and special occasion suiting,  dates from the end of the 19th century. A three piece royal blue velvet suit with beautiful lining and exquisite silver buttons and panelling.
As a suit for special occasions it is exceptional. But the trousers can be worn everyday with simple layered shirting and braces. I like the idea that you wear part of your best more often than not. That it is not packed away in a cupboard to be dusted off each year but is worn. So that the wearing gives it life.
