Charles Tyrwhitt

Charles Tyrwhitt of Jermyn Street in London has been making men's clothes for quite a while.  I know a lot of our readers like their clothes and I have to agree with them.  The prices are reasonable and the style is classic.  Aside the the inane need for bad puns like: "suited and booted", the website has a great selection of clothes and nice sale items.

Take this houndstooth jacket, it is great for work or a casual first date.  It is classic but with a slightly larger than normal pattern making it modern and stands out from the crowd.  Got to love the ticket pocket and tapered waist line.  It has double vents as a good Brittish jacket should and the pockets are slanted as the dandys like.  Great jacket.

Another good option is this unstructured navy twill jacket with patch pockets.  It takes the blazer and makes it casual.  You can throw this jacket in the corner of the room and not have to worry about it, which is the beauty of unstructured and unlined jackets.  Ever man needs one of these.

They also feature this beautiful royal blue velvet jacket.  The jacket has peak lapels which make it slightly more formal than is usual for the casual velvet fabric.  That formality makes it perfect for a day at the office (assuming you're not a lawyer or banker) or for a date.  The peak lapels also accentuate the shoulders making them appear broader which for more most men is a big help.  It also has the double vents and slightly slated pockets which add to the beauty of the jacket.  It's rare to find a velvet jacket like this one.

Let's just hope the geniuses at Charles Tyrwhitt stick to clothes and stay out of the pun business.  I don't think my eyes can take another "suited and booted" joke without causing a vomitious reaction.
