Possibly my most treasured purchase of the entire year. I’ll take a better photo at some stage (perhaps whilst they’re actually in use!)
Many thanks to Harris Tweed Carloway, for offering to sponsor my tailoring project this coming year! Especially for the chance to produce my own designs with their amazing team.
May the tailoring begin.
I’m not sure what this blog currently is other than a journal about things that catch my eye, so here’s another.
This greenhouse at my Gran’s is completely overgrown with the loveliest grapes!
Declaration of Tweedependence
This tweed is authentic as all hell. Styleforum member Zissou posted the certificate of authenticity for the cloth for a friend’s father’s jacket, handwoven in Scotland in 1959 by Don MacDonald (presumably from a long line of Donalds), and certified at Stornaway, which is way the heck up there. I bet that jacket is SICK.
I have worked with the Harris Tweed team at the Carloway Mill and I must say, the traditions are still going strong and people I met there couldn’t have been lovelier. Amazing!

Solo Major wearing my Paul Smith inspired QR code suit. The classic Paul Smith stripe is deconstructed until the wearer sits a certain way (communicating a particular body language) and is reconstructed again. The lining is composed of QR codes personalised to the wearer which remain scannable.
