The launch of MENSWEAR
Thursday September 27 was the official launch of MENSWEAR, a collection of 200 vintage photo postcards of well-dressed males. Artist Tom Phillips compiled the book from his amazing collection of 50,000 postcards and I was privileged to write the foreword. Bodleian Library Publishing has now published six books featuring postcards from Tom’s hoard.
The launch was made possible by Huntsman of Savile Row, which opened its doors to the 80 or so guests, and prestigious cloth merchant Harrisons of Edinburgh, which supplied the essential and much-enjoyed liquid refreshments. My thanks go to Poppy Charles and Patrick Murphy of Huntsman and to Mark and James Dunsford of Harrisons for their generous support. I am grateful also to Dr Samuel Fanous, Deborah Susman and Su Wheeler at Bodleian Library Publishing for supporting my idea of a launch on Savile Row. It was a splendid occasion and a worthy launch for a brilliant book.
