Great British Attire

Every time I’m near Old Bond Street and Piccadilly Street I always seem to spot a handsome man. I almost fell over running across the street, making a mad dash to take this photo. 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 , art and style. It will be your guide to the world of custom tailoring and bespoke craftsmanship.

Donald describes his style "When it comes to style, I try to be as classic as possible. Cary Grant meets Hercule Poirot, with a dash of Steve McQueen. Simplicity and cleanliness are key. I do not have a favorite designer. I’m more of a style over fashion guy, so I don’t worry too much about labels, but I’ll give you a quick run down on what I was wearing. Hat: Trilby by Lock and Co, Velvet Jacket: Aquascutum (1970’s), Shirt: Hilditch and Key, Tie: Hermes, Trousers: Ede and Ravenscoft, Shoes: Peal & Co, sunglasses: Rayban, Watch: Cartier."

    That is one thing I miss about being in London! The guys always looked so put together and fashion forward, not just the gay boys!

    Blimey, he does look dashing. I love a true Englishman. And that bicycle with wicker basket is just the cherry on the cake.
