Now these photos are the same group as above, but dressed for the after-shoot dinner (i.e. piss-up). Lots of hard-core "squire" stuff going on here. Note the clashing colour & pattern combinations that country Brits put together without the slightest sense of irony...
Love the pin through the tie on that old boy in the last shot.
A very Holland & Holland-esq style show for the after shoot drinking. They look much better here.
The clothes MUST look worn. The wear on the collar on the chap with the eye-brows in the first shot is perfect.
Patina is the key to this look.
Class is never flash in Blighty...
My dear Grandmother always used to say "Only the poor spend money".
Alice in Wonderland logic (and she was bonkers) but the key to getting this look right is to buy quality and then to treat it like dirt for a decade.
THEN you'll look the part.
Nothing new, nothing shiney (unless it shines with age).
Our own American Squire looks just fine but give him a decade wearing the same clothes & he'll look more like an English Squire.
Stilton on legs!
