  1. May houndstooth tweed

    As worn by der Benno at the 1961 Zandvoort Grand Prix, with a trilby, V-neck sweater, perfectly pressed cavalry twill trousers and his trademark white dianthus & aviator sunglasses. The pronounced houndstooth pattern makes this one of those quintessential sportscoats…. Great to wear into spring as a piece of casual outerwear. iGents will have noticed the gauntlet cuffs on jacket, an anachronistic bespoke detail that signals to all #menswear nerds in the vicinity ‘I am a bespoke’.
