BUT even I was blown away with the sheer beauty of it all, the images are stunning.

Tweedmans Vintage ( formerly Vintage Whistles ) were contacted at the beginning of the year by AVA academia publishing to ask if one of our images of a British Warm coat could be used for a menswear design book written by John Hopkins.
Erm ... yes!
So here it is, its great to see such a classic coat featured in a mens fashion design book aimed at young designers....
John Hopkins worked as a womenswear designer at Jaeger and Burberry for more than ten years. His teaching career started in the United States, where he served as chair of Fashion at Savannah Colege of Art and Design, before taking up his current position as head of Fashion and Textiles at Winchester School of Art, UK.

Am I A Chap?
Submit Yourself to the Ultimate Sartorial Inspection
Vintage Whistles and now trading as Tweedmans Vintage are very pleased to be listed in the directory of chaps vintage retailers!!
Am I A Chap? by Gustav Temple. This comprehensive tome seeks to classify every species and sub-species of the English gentleman that one may observe throughout the seasons, from the flamboyant young fop the crusty old duffer. Looking at the origins of the "Chap" genus, in figures such as Edward VII and Ian Carmichael, and their caddish counterparts such as Terry-Thomas and Bunny Roger, the book takes us up to the present day with comtemporary types such as the Bohemian Chap and the Hip Chap.
The book includes a selection of the photographs sent into the magazine's "Am I Chap?" section, along with their vigorous, uncompromising but ultimately helpful sartorial critiques. Elsewhere you will find detailed histories of the essential accoutrements for a gentleman's wardrobe, from brogues to trilbies to Fair Isle sweaters; pen-portraits of those who seem to be carrying the Chappist ensign as they go about their daily business - familiar characters such as Atters, Albion and Billy Childish.
With 192 full colour pages, concluding with a definitive directory of Britain's finest emporia of gentlemanly raiment, including new, vintage and bespoke, Am I A Chap? is an essential tome for any budding Chap-about-Town, fitting snugly into the poacher's pocket of a good Hacking jacket; it will also serve as a stylish and useful compendium for those with a desire to go "Chap Spotting".
The book retails in all respectable booksellers for £10.99 ... get your copy now!!

When Tweedmans Vintage ( formerly Vintage Whistles ) were contacted and asked to supply the "grooms" wear for a rustic country photo shoot we happily obliged.
Wedding photographers Christian & Erica Ward took some wonderful images of the day, and it was no surprise when they contacted me to say that the photo's were to be featured in the July / August issue of You & Your Wedding.
So we were extra happy to receive a mention for supplying the grooms velvet blazer & vintage suit for the wedding shoot.
And here is the feature :
