BSA Single Speed

Thanks to James at Bicycle Revolution West End for lending us his single speed for the weekend. We are hoping to incorporate the bike in our next photo shoot if it doesn't get snapped up before hand. It's a great ride, super light BSA steel frame with single speed freewheel hub.

For Summer we've been able to get some amazing cotton from our French supplier Doremuil. It's not cheap, but the quality of the cotton is so good that the grain in the weave is barely discernible.
Today we have a Tuxedo jacket in black cotton. We have styled it with a traditional single button, shawl lapel (narrow) and finished with silk covered buttons. A nice detail that we often use for 1 button jackets is the extra internal button on the front.
The shirt is a polka dot cotton with a narrow (mod) spread collar.

Today we have a casual take on the shirt and jacket. It's a charcoal self stripe cotton shirt, under a camel linen 1 button half lined jacket - complete with patch pockets and jetted chest pocket for a less formal finish.

This morning we have a smart summer look going on. It's a soft blue herringbone button down shirt, worn with a grey cotton half lined jacket and knitted wool/mohair tie.

Summer Epilette

Coming soon we'll be publishing The Cloakroom 'Essential Summer Wardrobe' - a guide to everything you'll need for the warmer months ahead.
Just arrived this week is a new blue epilette shirt (End on End weave) which may just may the cut.

Men's Style - spring/summer

We would like to say a big thank you to Kim Payne for her enthusiasm and support. She recently shot one of our jackets for the 'checks on the male' story in the new spring/summer Men's Style. Check it out, it hit shelves this week.
We're already looking forward to catching up next time we get back to Sydney.

The blue cotton jacket was part of the runway collection shown at Mercedes Fashion Festival.
