Industrial chic

A modern twist on practical, classic utility chic: D (or part thereof) models his latest secondhand suit, £15 from the car boot sale at Brighton Marina. It’s a machine-washable brushed cotton, looking and feeling halfway between a moleskin and a calico, and whilst the long coat jacket (nice cream collar detail) is a little large across the shoulders, it’ll go well over a thick jumper or tweed jacket (as modelled) this winter. The trousers are a little short, but fine with ankle boots. We (I) just need to find a couple of buttons for it, give it a good wash and an iron, and he’ll be well away.

The label reads  ‘New York Industrie’, which seems to be an Italian brand and no relation to Brooklyn Industries. Not that D cares about labels, Williamsburg hipster credentials or fashion-world machinations: he simply likes this suit.
