Waistcoat Wednesday: Nigel Cabourn, not knitted by your Granny

4 Comments

Reading Time: 5 minutesWelcome back to the 20th edition of Waistcoat Wednesday! Whilst today is another unseasonally warm day here in sunny Norway, today’s waistcoat selection is really a number I’ve been saving for when it gets a little chillier. A woolly little number, and what I consider to be a vest. A knitted vest. Not usually an article that would would be…

Waistcoat Wednesday: Nigel Cabourn, a linen number for the summer

5 Comments

Reading Time: 5 minutesThis week sees me bringing out yet another Nigel Cabourn waistcoat from the Closet of Many Waistcoats here at the mansion. I’ve previously presented two variants of the Mallory in Harris Tweed, and a cheekily checked madras linen Notch Lapel version.

Waistcoat Wednesday: NN.07, a Scandinavian take on Harris Tweed

2 Comments

Reading Time: 7 minutesBack again for installment number 12 of the epic bonanza of armless attire that is Waistcoat Wednesday, this time featuring a second waistcoat from Scandinavian brand NN.07. NN as in No Nationality, which is intended to convey a sort of esoteric and mysterious aspect to their garments, but appears to mostly mean that they don’t put the country of production…

What’s up with “dressing nice”?

4 Comments

Reading Time: 6 minutesLast week I was at a work conference celebrating 25 years of the company I work for. As per usual, there is the standard “Big Dinner”. While I enjoy good food, these dinners are always totally painful for me. Sitting at the table for hours to work our way through a meagre 3-course dinner, trying to engage the others round…

Style: What did I wear today?

1 Comment

Reading Time: 2 minutesThis isn’t something I plan to make a regular occurrence of posting, but seeing as it was the Norwegian national day today and an opportunity to dress up a little more than usual, I thought I’d share my “day-off” look with all my fantastic readers. Posed against my garage door, appearing to look unconcerned and relaxed, I’m wearing my SEH…

Reading Time: 4 minutesToday’s waistcoat is another Mallory by Nigel Cabourn, and yes, it’s the second of it’s kind I’m presenting. The first, in a brown Harris Tweed was number 2 in the series of Waitcoat Wednesdays. This one is the same, yet completely different, at least to me!

Waistcoat Wednesday: Nigel Cabourn, not for the shy

12 Comments

Reading Time: 4 minutesQuite a special waistcoat this week. One I’ve had for a while, but not really been confident to wear until now. Bought it a size too small by mistake, and only thanks to losing weight I can now get properly into it. A very distinctive waistcoat, courtesy of Nigel Cabourn. Three different colours, in quality Madras checked linen, again based…

Brace yourself – classic trouser suspension

5 Comments

Reading Time: 7 minutesI quite rarely find myself with a pair of trousers that doesn’t require some assistance in not dropping of their own accord. Given how my oldest offspring is now 24, even though I still think of myself as a young buck, I must start considering myself to be an adult, and hence striding around with my trousers hanging halfway off…
