Hackett Correspondent Range S/S 2011

It has been far too long between my posts. Though, being a freelance artist and writer means that you’re either between jobs (or what the rest of you out there would simply call being unemployed) or stupidly busy. I’m lucky having been the latter. At least for the moment. This however hasn’t stopped me entirely from keeping an eye on what’s happening in the world of gentlemen’s fashion, and I must say I’m quite excited about Hackett’s new Correspondent range launched this season.

They call it a collection inspired by the globetrotting gentleman … features four-pocket safari jackets, light-weight blazers and shirts. Accessories include linen scarves, leather trimmed luggage and Panama hats.



Well if that’s not exciting, what is? So for the days when one isn’t crawling on a dirty rehearsal floor in a basement of an opera house, or when one isn’t forced to sit in a boring hotel room writing in solitude, on can at least look decent. And the advantage of this range is that it can be a bit crumpled. You know, to get that authentic correspondent look. Seeing your crumpled but distinguished looks no one will raise an eyebrow apart from when thinking “…hm…I wonder where he got that…”.

  1. I was unaware of Hakett London S/S line. I went in search of Hackett. Very Nice. Thank goodness for Google! I do however understand what a crumpled yet distinguished globetrotting gentleman would look like to me. Your photo just screams F. Scott Fitzgerald. If Jay Gatsby were here today, he would love it!
    Happy you are at least busy. Now take time for some fun!
