Shop visit: The Army Gym, Nigel Cabourn in London


Reading Time: 5 minutesVisiting London at this time of year can be an immensely stressful experience. It’s likely to be warm, and it’s absolutely certain to be totally full of people. For this visit I wanted to keep is simple and I had almost nothing planned apart from a very short list of places I wanted to stop by. One of these was the Army…

Indigo and tweed- the week that was


Reading Time: 4 minutesThis week has been mostly in the hue of indigo. We’ve had amazing weather with the sky being blue, and with  nature on the cusp of springing out in all it’s glory, the colours outside are totally complimentary to the denim and tweed I’ve been wearing. Summer is coming in too fast though and I really don’t feel I’ve been…

Trouser Tuesday: Extraordinary strides from Nigel Cabourn


Reading Time: 12 minutesWelcome to part four of the 4-part mini-series presenting different takes on tweed trousers. So far we’ve had a look at a good pair from Toast, a reasonably priced pair from H&M and a rather special pair from SEH Kelly. What could todays instalment possibly be? What possible angle could I find to justify the inclusion of another pair of wool trousers? Apart from boldly…

Trouser Tuesday: Something a bit different from SEH Kelly


Reading Time: 9 minutesWelcome to part three of the 4-part mini-series presenting different takes on tweed trousers. So far we’ve had a look at a good pair from Toast, a reasonably priced pair from H&M, and today we will investigate an unusual pair from SEH Kelly.

This years gloves, by SEH Kelly


Reading Time: 7 minutesI have a small habit to confess to. It’s not a bad habit, per se, but a consistent one. You see, every Autumn when it starts getting cold in the morning, I fancy a new pair of gloves. And a decent pair at that. Genuinely good gloves tend to last more than a single season, if taken care of, so…

Yes, another editorial and Instagram update!


Reading Time: 4 minutesGetting back into the normal flow of things after a slow period over Xmas. Trouser Tuesdays are back on track with part 1 of a 4-part series of tweed trouser reviews. The idea is to present a mid-range pair, as in this weeks pair of Harris Tweed trousers from Toast, then a more reasonably priced pair, a splendidly exotic pair…

The weekly pictorial journal


Reading Time: 4 minutesAnd here we are again, another Friday morning and time for my little journal of what has been going on and what is coming up. Last Saturday saw us head up to Oslo to visit the new pop-up shop opened by the good people of Ætt and Livid Jeans. Bang in the middle of Aker Brygge, prime real estate in…

The McNasty take on patchwork tweed


Reading Time: 6 minutesOne of the big things here at Well Dressed Dad is tweed. Yes, it’s out of the bag, I do like the tweed. It’s nice and warm, for starters. It can be downright unpleasantly itchy. When not nestling against your sensitive skin though it has a tactile aspect that is wonderful. But above all, it looks absolutely fantastic. Now, I…

All the colours of the Autumn in technicolour Instagram


Reading Time: 3 minutesA cold and grey Autumn morning sees me making my way out into the world again. In Norway the trees that still have some semblance of leafiness are brown and shutting down, unless they are already stark and bare. Great opportunities for shameless comparisons with tweed and colourful wool garments. Due to other commitments last week only saw the single…

Waistcoat Wednesday! Kapitally tweedy and oriental


Reading Time: 8 minutesAnd… there! Welcome back to another Waistcoat Wednesday, and given how it’s the season finale, I’ve saved a right corker for this weeks expedition into the world of armless attire. Fellow followers of the waistcoat scene are well aware of its global nature, and how one may have to look around for the most singular specimens. So far my revered rack of great…
