Taking Some of the Starch Out of Business Wear.


Fairly conservative suit (Oxxford, grey sharkskin with a faint blue windowpane), Leviner Wood custom blue, black, white striped shirt, Drake’s plaid silk tie, RL black captoes … all very conservative. I didn’t have time to iron the ancient linen pocket square and so stuffed it into the pocket, points down, well enough to hide the odd small hole. Sometimes it is OK to take a little bit of  starch out of business wear.
