My Green Trauma

Here’s the video of Sunday’s Spring/Summer ’16 My Green Trauma London Collections: Men show.

The collection cuts a seductively serpentine path through the verdant thick of the Mexican jungle to Las Pozas, the fabulous far-off folly that was the creation of the quintessentially English poet and surrealist Edward James. My Green Trauma was what James called the jungle.

You will find the collection in-store and online in January 2016.

The music is Dancing in the Silence by Belgrave.

The Car Side

Camo Role

A 2006 vintage Richard James Bespoke camouflage jacket on display in the Savile Row store.

This is a jacket that we made for our own archive and it is similar to those that Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman wore on the cover of the late George magazine in 1999 (right, below). One of the suits we made for that shoot is now owned by the Victoria and Albert museum in London and featured in its fascinating British Design 1948 -2012: Innovation in the Modern Age exhibition of 2012.

The camo is a variataion of the classic Disruptive Pattern Material which served the British Army in both its woodland (seen here) and desert colourways from 1963 until 2009.

We first made a camouflage suit for a customer who doesn’t much like wearing suits to make a point in at the opera. There are bespoke Savile Row suits and there are bespoke Savile Row suits…
