Trouser Tuesday: Toast does Harris Tweed


This is the first part of 4 where I’ll be taking a look at tweed trousers. I’ll feature a mid-range pair, a low-end pair, and rather unusual pair, and an expensive pair, which also happen to be maybe the silliest trousers around. To start things off I’ll go with the mid-range, then we’ll work our way along, week by week.…

The week that was, in photos


This week saw me round up the Great Shaving Cream Investigation. Finally! The winner(s) have been announced, the results presented in tabular form, and wise observations uttered regarding the deeper meaning of it all. This week also saw the arrival of a singular waistcoat all the way from Japan. Opinion on this one is divided, with WDG on one side…

Waistcoat Wednesday – Another piece by Levis


Another day of mid-week sleeveless wonderment is here, by way of this waistcoat, or vest if you like, from Levis. I have reviewed a Levis waistcoat before, and thought it pretty good. This one though is part of their Made & Crafted line, which is, as far as I can tell, a line Levis created to blend their history with…

Waistcoat Wednesday! Everyone likes a piece of Toast


So, after a few months holiday, Waistcoat Wednesday is finally back, and back with a rather splendid piece of armless attire as well! I found this one whilst travelling in the UK this summer. Toast is not a brand I’ve really paid much attention to until now, but visiting Kilver Design Village in Shepton Mallet I found myself in the Toast outlet there,…

Summertimes on Instagram


It’s a slow summer on the blog-writing front. 30+ degrees of blazing sun, week after week, means it’s a lot more tempting to go for a refreshing swim in the sea than sit inside researching and writing! Fear not though, once the weather cools down a bit and days get back on schedule I have some great stuff lined up.…

Trouser Tuesday: Whillas & Gunn "Charles", unusually retro


Working our way around the world reviewing trousers sees us arriving in Australia today. Whillas & Gunn, a family company supplying fine, rugged menswear since 1972, are something of a favourite of mine, having made both one of the very favourite waistcoats (which says something) and the backpack I use on a daily basis. Todays offering is a pair of…

Trouser Tuesday: Black Iron Knuckleheads, denim in short supply


There are a huge amount of denim brands available today. I wouldn’t even want to try to start counting them. Maybe half a dozen huge brands, several dozen big brands, and the number of brands seems to grow exponentially the smaller they get. Black Iron Clothing are one of the smallest I’ve come across, being essentially a 2 person venture.…

Trouser Tuesday : Mister Freedom "El Americano"


Well, what do you know, it’s Tuesday again, and on Tuesdays we talk about trousers! Today I want to talk about one of my most recent additions to the Vault of Two-legged Garments here at WellDressed Mansion, the “El Americano” by Mister Freedom. I’ll admit that until I visited Maritime & Antiques in Copenhagen, I’d not really paid that much…
