Morning Style Mongers. Managed to slip through Hattons to link Stretch (click) this week bout some jewellery action been planning. Looking deeply at ingots, but as seems like most got melted down with the gold price hike, and while both strongly feeling barking effect on other jewellery, got us thinking bout a bespoke barked ingot. (Know what I mean by ‘barking’? Its a well late 70’s car-dealer-esque effect on gold, bidding on a barked gold pen right now). So, getting Stretch to kindly design an ingot bespoke for moi as a consequence. I mean, its not like he’s got a lot on his gold plate right now, non? It’s for a look am working on, natch. A subtle meld of Nouveau Romantic Darts Team Capt. Mutton and Luxury Gypsy Speed Flanneur. There are similarities. If you want a musical theme to this read, try The Passions down the bottom, from TopOfThePops its not ideal, but what really is. Check Powell*. Stick it on, nein? Meanwhile, talking of vintage links, we vidied these from Bouch’ while nosin’ around.
Window schlepping in The Garden.
Door policy on this gaff is proper hilare. The owner would really rather not have you in the shop at all, let alone spend your wedge. He’s even got a tattoo ban in operation, ffs. Didn’t like the look of my mushroom croc clutch much either. We had to work from the outside, and was only when we pressed previous receipts from shop and various i.d’s to the window that we garnered entry. Too silly. Too funny. Fermer le Bouch’, matey. Bouch’ the past, Bouch’ the present..
Boucheron Quatre cufflinks in 18kt pink, white and yellow gold, brown PVD and brown ceramic
These Quatre guys from Boucheron struck me in the week while in liaising with their people. Super, no? Even though don’t wear links much now, am strongly sucked in. Perhaps should wear them on a chain. At £4, 730, it’d have to be a nice chain.
Randomly, like these top Oliver Peoples bins too to go with look. Its all getting so, so tonal. Even had my skin done while in France to fit in. Am sort of peach/Cuprinol colour with leopard gecko freckle effect currently.
Carts got the right stylised ingot idea here, but too too small for purpose.
Gotta dash now, as shooting today with Jocks&Nerds believe it or not, along with dear Stretcha too. Interestingly, we are modelling. Oh yes, in our capacity as C.P.Company dedicats. Simply could not refuse. Asked me if I new a contact for Toby McLellan. Yes, I do: Too fun. Self styling: Planning the look now, which has to involve vintage C.P. action form ones archive. Will include new caramel unlined Guccis (clicky). My current working title for look is ‘Peach Tonal Herbert’ or ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth Tones‘, shall update…
P.S. Do you think the morning of the shoot is too late to be hand washing your C.P. Mille Miglia? If so, might have naused it a trifle…
* D.J./TOTP Presenter, Peter Powell does the same earnest whisper technique in the intro as used by the Presenter/D.J./friend/client Dermot O’Leary. Nein?
Pant and texture wise, Dave’s not far from it with these though.
See below for where am heading with Thom Sweeney Ariston DB suit/Dunhill slubby silk coral shirt below. Cant see the pleats, but the pants are killer good. Not nearly enough jewellery though, nein?
