Seeing a man look so dashing on a bicycle is quite a thrill. He sort of reminded me of a British Donald Draper (Mad Men).
I took his photo and we exchange cards. After reading his card it wasn’t surprizing that he had such great style as Donald McFarlane is the managing director of a new website Great British Attire. – An online collective that will be bringing you the latest in the world of menswear, art and style.
