Today classic English style and tailoring enjoys worldwide adulation, and rightly so.
Here, Jeremy Hackett, founder of the eponymous gentlemen's outfitters and columnist for the Independent on Sunday, takes us on a Grand Tour of an appealing world of Bentleys and polo, bicycles and picnics, bow ties and Sussex Spaniels, top hats and bespoke luggage.
Brimming with photographs, anecdotes and observations as sharp as his suits - as well as more than a glancing nostalgia for an age when a chap really knew how to dress - this is a book for those who know how to appreciate the finer things in life, and for would-be dandies everywhere.
