Sartorial Kew

It is almost pathological my desire to hunt down those whose style I covet. First up this gentleman who's coat i loved, I would love to swagger around like this.

and this tweed combination.

I loved the cut of both these trousers very cool.

I am also a big fan of the 'man bag' these fishing satchels are great.

My favourite a real sartorial goddess the detailing in her outfit was sublime, check out the silver hat pin and her necklace and her wonderful turquoise hat at just the right jaunty angle.

This nautical look was fun
and I am always a sucker for stripes and a Barbour bag

I loved the tweed mixed up with all the traditional trappings

Once again the tourist nails a wonderful mix-up of pattern.

Your sartorial goddess is wonderful - the colours, the details, the utter insouciance of her! I used to love Kew too when I lived in London many years ago - the entry fee then (I'm sure no longer) was something like a halfpenny, which somehow seemed a much better bargain than paying nothing at all.

Yes I remember you dropped a tuppence into a slot and the turnstile let you through, it was wonderful, it is now an eye watering £13, but what price can you put on such and iconic place?

You already know I love your eye, right?
That pin in the jaunty turquoise beret is wonderful! I'm going to find a brooch for mine today in honour . . .

I absolutely adore tweedy mixed with other textures and shades. I prefer tweeds that look seriously lived in. They have more gravitas and read better to my eye when they don't look like one is trying to hard.
