well i had to start somewhere didnt i? i just had to begin. so after several failed and abandoned attempts to start this project, this morning i decided no matter how bad or boring i had to start. flicking through a few february editions in the dusty pile, i couldnt resist sharing this one with you. primarily because of the beautifull cover, what perfect colours to brighten up a dull february day. whenever i look back over the archive, i am surprised at how dated some things look, did we really dress like that?then to the contrary,just how current some things appear. in this issue we have suits, soft tailoring, stripes and checks and a fair amount of tuille,all things well covered and spotted in the recent catwalk shows. maybe i can do a then and now feature? watch this space.
