A couple of days ago my wife and I attended a "Party like Gatsby" social gathering in Copenhagen.
I thought it an excellent opportunity to wear my vintage 1951 Evening Tails.An absolutely beautiful suit by bespoke tailors "Malmstrom" of Sackville Street; originally commisioned by a renowned British Interior Architect.
|Matched with my Chamois gloves and my 1929 silver knob handled walking cane|
|Vintage 1930s top hat from Austin Reed|
The suit has many lovely details like the quilted interiour; the silk collar that looks like a fusion between a shawl collar and a traditional peak collar; and the neatly cuffed arms...

|Lovely shawl collar - I have never seen such a collar before|
|Cuffed arms, military style|
The Evening Tails suit is perfect for such a night out at a grand venue with 1500 people; a lovely mix of swing, neo- and electronic swing music; Tiller girls and Charleston dance. We had a swell night out dancing and drinking.
