Jamie Ferguson is one of the most charming and likeable photographers in menswear and is often seen lurking on the ground in the city of Florence at Pitti Uomo. It is in the birthplace of the Renaissance that he consistently captures an instant in time that epitomises genuine menswear style. He also recently became an author, with his book This Guy - a fascinating collection of his photographs celebrating modern menswear. It is certainly worth picking up a copy, if you can get your mitts on one. You can peruse Jamie's handpicked selection from The Rake below.
Already owning a pair of Stubbs and Wootton slippers which are perhaps a tad subtler, I'm quite drawn to these needlepoint versions for something with a little more punch.
I'm all over a roll neck as the colder months fast approach, especially a chunky, rough and ready one such as this from Heimat. A definite 'beater' if ever there was one.
I'd top off the last look with one of the corduroy baseball caps from Rowing Blazers. Sometimes the hair just doesn't pay attention and can easily be hidden by a great cap.
A great pattern in a very versatile shade of brown, the linen will rumple nicely and pair well with some worn and frayed denim jeans and cordovan penny loafers.
