The internet in one window
Who needs Google searches when you can still find proper menswear shops like Vic Kimpton Menswear, in Herne Bay, Kent? Despite the appearance, I took these pictures in December 2012, not December 1962.
I have not had the pleasure of meeting Mr Kimpton, but clearly he appears to be a man unfamiliar with the term “less is more”.
As a pal of mine observed: “He has the whole internet in one window.” There is so much that cheers me about Mr K’s classical approach to outfitting, but I especially like his informative flyers that impart product knowledge and benefits in a compelling manner.
One day, when I have a couple of hours to spare, I will return to 158a Mortimer Street, Herne Bay, to try and count just how many items are in this window.
