PICTURE: #3 IN SIX ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
GEOFFREY BRADFIELD TALKS ABOUT HIS 3rd OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Khaki jeans Incotex Venezia
Blue pinstripe shirt with white cuffs and collar Ascot Chang
Sapphire and diamond cufflinks Verdura
Navy and white bowtie Brooks Brothers
Waistcoat Favourbrook: Jermyn Street, London
Custom cotton unlined jacket Astor & Black
Cashmere socks Ralph Lauren
Brown loafers Burberry
Khaki canvas belt Nautica
Wristwatch Baume et Mercier
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I am fond of the Favourbrook waistcoat. It was custom made for me in London. [I have several more in different fabrics.] I was born in the Southern Hemisphere and am happiest in sunshine. I obviously only wear this in the summer. It’s about fun and holidays and to some extent, nostalgia.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I never dress randomly. It is always planned.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This is a summer outfit. Hamptons, south of France/Mediterranean luncheon party, etc.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I simply dress for pleasure.
