Having drowned myself last holy week on two Audrey Hepburn classics and a couple of Italian black and white movies from the list my friend Fonso sent me drew back with my appreciation for the stylish man of the 1950’s. George Peppard in Breakfast at Tiffany's and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday definitely had it down perfectly, knew what they were doing and did it pretty well.

Stiff spread collared shirts, perfectly snug tailored suits and elegant paisley and rep ties just looked right without being overbearing. Trust me, a perfectly tailored suit really does much for a man just like my go to suits from Paul Smith and a bespoke navy from my trusted tailor.
