SHARP SUITS in British Esquire
My elegantly-dressed friend Richard James gave himself and me a plug in the October issue of British Esquire, with a cheeky mention of the first edition of my book, Sharp Suits. Published in 2009, Richard wrote the foreword and we had a very memorable launch party at his large shop on Savile Row.
On page 85 of the mag, style setters are asked to recommend a favourite book and Richard picks Sharp Suits. Well done to the picture editor at Esquire for electing to show a great image of Marlon Brando as Sky Masterson in the movie of Guys and Dolls from 1955.
This edition is now very hard to find as the print run sold out, but a revised edition was published this year, with a new foreword by Timothy Everest, who like Richard James is another fine modern tailor.
