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 week before Xmas in photos


Reading Time: 4 minutesI skipped my little journal last Friday due to the need to focus on other matters. I was gratified to be reminded by a number of people about this omission though, so this week it’s back in an extended and edited format. Of course, if you already follow my Instagram feed, it’ll be old news, but here you get all…

The “back to reality” Instagram round-up


Reading Time: 3 minutesSince last weeks round-up I’ve made my way back from the chaos of India to the relative peace and calm of my home in Norway. Apart from obvious things like the temperature being about 20C colder and it raining almost all the time, I think it may be the silence and calm that makes the most difference. Cycling past what…

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…

How many Instagrams to a kilogram?


Reading Time: 3 minutesWelcome back to another of my weekly compilations of Instagram output. After an unusually warm and pleasant Autumn we now have proper weather with a vengeance, lots of vicious winds and drenching downpour. Great times for chaps with good jackets. The inclement weather and short days have made it more difficult than usual to stage my incredibly advanced photo sessions, but I…

Waistcoat Wednesday! Earl of Bedlam, from South of the river


Reading Time: 7 minutesSouth of the River Thames in London is an area I seldom venture into. Nothing personal against it geographically speaking, but it does seem like all the good stuff is on the other side of the river. Well, apart from the Imperial War Museum, which is a truly great museum and well worth the trip. It’s even good from a menswear…

The week that was, in photos


Reading Time: 4 minutesThis 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! A fine layer of Universal Workness


Reading Time: 7 minutesAnother Wednesday, another waistcoat! And another opportunity to sample one of the waistcoats from prodigious producer of limbless tops of various descriptions, Universal Works. I’ve previously displayed pleasure at their output on a couple of occasions (here and here), though this time I’ve selected a different style for review. As we enter into the colder period of the year it…

Waistcoat Wednesday! Whillas and Gunn, for the card sharps


Reading Time: 8 minutesA week appears to have passed since last Wednesday, a fact which must mean it’s time for another Waistcoat Wednesday here at Well Dressed Mansion. Observing the rack of superb armless attire, my eyes alight on an item of striped goodness all the way from Whillas and Gunn in Australia. Whillas and Gunn are no newcomers around these days, having made…

Waistcoat Wednesday – Another piece by Levis


Reading Time: 8 minutesAnother 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…
