Yesterday Stuarts London started following me on Twitter. According to their Twitter profile they're
"a retro & Heritage fashion follower's paradise"
So you know I had to check that out! My abridged want list is as follows:
1. Barbour Tartan Holdall
Now the description has "wheelie" in it which makes me nervous as I'm more a classic luggage than one you can hear going over textured floors and grates. But the pull along parts are detachable for a gentleman who prefers style over sloth.

2. John Smedley Peregrine Basket Weave T Shirt
I'm a little guy, so I can pull off this knitted t shirt in a way that is less bottle service and Hummers and more Vespas and La Dolce Vita. I love the knit and I'll confess I looked up "Peregrine" on MerriamWebster.com (sidebar: love that site! Have it bookmarked.
Nerd Alert!) and the definition is "having a tendency to wander". Now Stuarts London has supplied me with new vocab and a desirable not so static knit.

3. Farah "The Beckett" Shirt in Tomato
Yesterday a client of mine was enquiring about the fit and make of a navy Pauw skirt. Her questions, however, were falling on deaf ears as I was making mental notes to pinch her style and pick up a short sleeve chambray in a reddish pink immediately and pair it with navy even faster! So chic in that French farmer way.

4. Baracuta "James Dean" Jacket
Guess I'm not the only one on this perpetual hunt...

So, review? While they won't be usurping Merriam Webster from my main bookmark bar, they are indeed a paradise of men's stylish finds and will be added to my e-commerce folder. Pray now that my credit card doesn't find its way to Stuarts London too often.
