Close Up and Private

etiquette for the modern classicist...

Slim cut suits with short legged trousers go a long way.

Buy a pair of wingtips and loafers.

The Beatles sir, listen to them – and do so regularly.

Owning at least 3 oxford shirts has never done a man any harm.

Be a gentleman towards women.

Own several ties – n.b. Four-in-hand knots only – mix things up with a bow tie.

Watch all movies by Andrei Tarkovsky. Re-watch them.

Always consider a well-fitting navy blazer with gold buttons.

Serge Gainsbourg looked smart in a trench coat and so do you.

Own a classic cashmere v-neck and a round-neck pull-over.

Kaki chino trousers are as essential as they are basic.
Choose your pair meticulously.

Cherish a good relationship with your parents.

Sometimes looking at a nice black and white picture of your grandfather
as a young man wearing his Sunday-suit can learn you more about classic style
than reading 20 fashion magazines.

A watch – you do own one do you? - should be flat, vintage, and have a leather band.

Be punctual.

Ray Ban sunglasses matter.

Stay current.

Trust the classics.
