I recently came across this frankly jaw-dropping blog-come-shop, hailing from the south-east coast of England and felt an immediate compulsion to share it.
It’s not often, correct me if I’m wrong, that you come across site like these on a daily basis. Without having a connection with the person who runs this micro-collection of bespoke and one-off pieces, I could immediately see the extreme eye for detail they had. Behind these pieces there was true interest in firstly, menswear, but also I think the clothes on show really encapsulate those previous decades where ones attire was held in much higher regard.
I got in touch with Laurence once I had a good look through the blog and he said that he saw “the blog, more as a place to document the clothes I’ve made -rather than as a business”.
I asked him a few more questions:
Each carefully crafted piece is made using original period trimmings, buttons and fabrics – which I can assure you is not an easy thing to get hold of. I must say – this is something very special and look forward to seeing what what else he gets onto making.
