Over Christmas holiday, I’ve been reading lots of Blake & Mortimer to my sons, educating their sartorial eye through bande dessinée. It strikes me that Edgar P. Jacobs often liked to draw characters who don bow ties with their DB’s, hence the bow tie and DB blazer fit today, for my eldest son’s birthday.
Albert Arts shirt and flannel DB blazer with crested buttons from the Traveller’s Club Paris. Brooks Brothers bow tie — Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders Repp tie pattern. Drake’s ps. Gambler RTW soft cavalry twill trousers with cavalry pockets. JM Weston suede bucks thrifted on eBay. Red socks by Bowen.
