And The Winner Of The Portrait Competition Goes To.....

Dr. Grover Holzwarth Of Brazil.

There was little doubt in my mind that I could award the portrait competition to anyone else. It wasn't the best photo (actually a bit grainy), he wasn't dressed as immaculately as Ray Frensham, he couldn't play the guitar like Tomas Molina, he wasn't as well groomed as Andrew Terrett, nor was he riding in a wedding carriage in Mumbai like Jay Mohanka but something about this photo won me over. It is personal, it is original and I believe it was the best of the bunch this time round.

I am however, going to send each and every one of you something in the mail to thank you for your participation but only Grover will take the big prize which includes:

1 x Carlo Riva cotton custom made shirt by Le Noeud Papillon
1 x Limited Edition Le Noeud Papillon woven silk jacquard bow tie
1 x Le Noeud Papillon limited edition La Belle Dame Sans Merci pocket square

Dr. Grover Holzwarth wears our 'Churchill' navy silk grosgrain with white polka dot spots whilst dining at Le Train Bleu in Paris.


  1. Sorry, it is not "Churchill"... I see Honore here - "burgundy or wine basket weave on a black satin ground with white polka dots". But anyway the picture is nice.

  2. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've send us :) Thank you!
