The English social calendar continues to roll on. This past week was the Centenary Coronation Cup where fashion designer Leon Max distinguished himself with an interesting pairing of yellow trousers, cream jacket, cream vest, Panama hat and young woman.
Prince Phillip's blazer, with its eight keystoned gold buttons, was another wardrobe highlight of the Cup but I am staying with Mr. Max despite his over-long trousers because of the suede shoes.
Tan suede shoes are an excellent pairing with summer trousers. This is not only my opinion, as two of the three Neapolitan jacket wearers in yesterday's post were wearing them (the other was wearing a pair of my Sloops and so earns dispensation for the fact that they were calf). And they have the further advantage of not requiring polish. The shoes that is, not the jacket wearers.
