Royal Check

It’s been the first full week back at work in 2017 and the weather has certainly encouraged staying put in the office with cold winds, rain and what goes for snow in London, which sure also looks a lot like rain.
Having relied on turtlenecks and thick wool sweaters throughout most of the week, I felt that Friday needed that extra bit of effort and so put on my grey windowpane suit. It is only just now as I’m writing this that I wonder whether this choice was subconsciously influenced by the fact that I had just finished watching the last episodes of Netflix’s The Crown (sublime!), where windowpane suits are in abundance. Thus, with a navy pocket square, green knit tie and a bit royal swagger in my walk, I started Friday off at the Monocle cafe in Marylebone for a good cup of coffee and a chance to window shop at Trunk Clothiers on the same street. Not a bad start to the weekend for a commoner.
