Paul Stuart Wins Wimbledon
You Are Looking Well
I saw the outfit above and immediately thought of you. I pictured you at the Centre Court of Wimbledon. Imagine the sun shining — hard I know — and you are wearing your Persol 714s with your hair slicked back with brilliantine. You have your strawberries and champagne to hand; the well-dressed, good-humoured and considerate people surrounding you have turned off their their mobile phones and put them away; and you are about to settle down to watch a British tennis player win the men's final in hushed reverence.
We must congratulate you on your sense of style and for creating this perfect moment.
The clothes are mostly from Paul Stuart's Phineas Cole summer collection. Paul Stuart, as we insist on reminding you, are purveyors of top-drawer Anglo-American vestiary for men and women. Their Phineas Cole collection takes its unapologetically flamboyant inspiration for men's clothes from archive 1920s designs, colours and textures.
