SEVENTIES SWAGGER



Gentlemen, start your engines ...






The new soft line suits - elephantine lapels enhance a tan chalk-stripe single-breasted suit by Raleigh. The jumbo pleated patch pockets have button down flaps. Naturally, you wear a wide-brimmed hat, like this one by Hat Corporation to complement the look.






 rev some more ...


Boldness played against softness by Britain's  Hardy Amies. A three -button traditional model with a European accent. Wide notched lapels in a Saville Row vein, rather than the loose rolled-to-the-middle-button Madison Avenue manner. The waist is shaped, and the pocket placement and center vent, shout Britannia - while the fabric is Ivy League chalk-stripe grey wool worn with a strongly striped shirt and mono-toned tie. Wear with Pierre Cardin's blunt-toed black slip-on.










Get The London Look





Lower-keyed readings of bold shades shown in this Jackie Rogers mohair suit with squared shoulders and a moderately traced waist. The lapels are wide peaked and the jacket has no vents. The Jackie Rogers shirt is worn with a Burma-Bibas tie. 





The high-rise pants reveal a return to single pleats. A Raphael hat with a Thirties side dip and patterned band tops it off.





The Devil's In The Details
