On my Instagram feed yesterday I got a tag from Milan Style director Jonathan Alexander Edwards who made contact with us whilst penning an article on black tie attire for Die Welt's style section some time ago
Jonathan is a very tall man. So tall that our regular old Majestic Black just looked plain tiny on the man. So we crafted him a jumbo sized bow tie which he is wearing below during the Pitti week in Florence. What drew me to the image was not in fact our bow tie, which looks great on him, but the generous and sweeping style and shape of his shawl collar which I think is really one of the most elegant dinner jackets I have seen in some time. Men are afraid of stepping out of line on black tie but this is an example of remaining within the confines of traditional black tie ensemble and yet stamping your own style.
