Rules of Style - Patrick Grant:
“People are sometimes surprised to see me out of a suit. I want to tell them, I don’t live in a bloody suit! But I have standards. I’m very fastidious about my dress. I feel better when I know the clothes I’m wearing fit right, but if people don’t naturally think about clothes, I don’t want them to worry about clothes. We spend too much time trying to create rules around these things. I’d just like people to wear good things. I don’t want them wearing rubbish made in an awful way.”
“Buy products of genuine lasting value from brands that take their manufacturing seriously. I have things that are 75 years old, like the dinner suit of my grandfather’s that was made in 1933 by a tailor in Edinburgh. Clothes develop stories. You can remember where you’ve been through clothing that you’ve worn. I want products that are going to endure. I hate that we buy things that are disposable. We need to buy products with integrity.”
“Here’s the theory on pattern-on-pattern dressing. Men are likely to wear a pattern in their suit, shirt, tie, and handkerchief, and if all of those are of different scales—the check is a half centimeter, the stripe on the shirt is a centimeter, the stripe on your ties is two centimeters, et cetera—it all works. If the patterns are the same scale, it never works. Look at the Duke of Windsor, who was a great pattern wearer. He never wears the same scale of pattern.”
“I actually don’t care how people dress. I just want people to be interesting.”
