A Testimonial In Praise Of A Suitable Wardrobe

My style is very different from Will Boehlke's of A Suitable Wardrobe and yet we have many cross overs where I am so happy with the wares he puts on his website. From braces to perfume atomisers to rare deer skin gloves and ox horn clothing brushes, I constantly find myself trawling his website for the obscure that everybody else left off their website. To call him a curator would be incorrect. Because I know he spends a great deal of time developing products from scratch, as he has done with us at Le Noeud Papillon. I guess what I am saying is, it's nice to know he is across absolutely everything he sells you. This is not some slapped together website where someone is trying to make a quick buck. This is more like building a long term relationship and that is why I like to shop his haberdashery.

Pictured here I am wearing a pair of limited edition silk Albert Thurston braces that I received late last week. I decided to take a chance. I was used to wearing bone with a light blue shirt, but instead I opted for a black and white contrast. So, here is the ensemble broken down.

A Le Noeud Papillon bone coloured suit using Holland And Sherry serge in wide notched lapel. A Le Noeud Papillon white breathable 170 2 ply Canclini Platino shirt with concealed button down. A pair of black and white limited edition geisha braces from Albert Thurston via A Suitable Wardrobe, a white with black polka dot Charvet pocket square and pair of BV thatched suede loafers that I hand-died black. For the Sydney spring which was heading towards summer temperatures of 30 degrees celsius, this was such a breezy summer ensemble and I felt light and easy all afternoon.
