“A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.” – Hardy Amies

The British have always been good at style. Curse them for their questionable politics, their dubious past and subsequently their karma-induced weather, but on a whole, quintessential British style is pretty faultless. Great shoes (this issue we travelled to Northamptonshire), the world’s best tailors (we chatted to Richard Anderson), iconic jackets (we visited Barbour HQ in South Shields), the best department stores (talking shop with Liberty London) and now the best electric cars (we welcomed in the Jaguar I-Pace). Not to mention better food than people give them credit for (talking British ingredients with our favourite chefs), inspired cocktails (upgrade your gin) and a faultless national hot drink (guess). Enjoy the issue and stop putting so much milk in your tea.
