What To Make Your Man Buy This Weekend And Why

04 February 2011

As we've already mentioned, the remake of Brighton Rock is released in cinemas this weekend, based on Graham Greene’s novel.  It’s now set in the Sixties and comes complete with Mods and Scooters. It also  looks like Pinkie (Sam Riley) might openly fall in love with Rose (Andrea Riseborough), another thing that didn’t happen in the startlingly good original. The Mods do look jolly stylish though. Remaking classic films rarely produces worthy material, however Burton is demonstrating this is not the case  with tailoring. Also out this week is their version of a mohair Sixties Mod  suit; which, one has to say, is pretty damn good considering it only costs  £110.

The cut is sharp and flattering, and the tonic ‘faux-hair’ fabric  is convincing enough. Your man can style it with a decent pair of loafers or  handsome slim lace-up shoes to sell the look. Or he could consider a roll-neck  knit as an alternative to the ubiquitous narrow tie look, and keep ahead of  the cavorting in-crowd.
