Celebrate N.Peal’s 90th birthday this year. Suppliers of cashmere – and let me say, of the first water (if that is not a mix-up of everything – think damp cashmere, no don’t) – this fibre is perfect when whipped up into a roll neck or high Vee beneath suiting. Cashmere takes the edge off formality in a distinctly delightful way and it need not be a chunky cable jumper designed for a winter stroll. The thinnest of yarn, the densest of colour can inform the most strident suiting and lend a certain insouciant flamboyance of the (no need to practice) boulevardier. Finish with a silk cravat or square, the tails dangling down your proud chest as the sharpest of swallows – and well… you’re there!
