We’ve been looking at The Armoury for a long time now, with a majority of my outfits focusing on recreating ones by Dick Carroll. As a result, it has been ivy focused, with repp stripes and oxford shirts. For this article, I’m going to be recreating one of my favorite outfits of all time, worn by one of the first Armourers: Jake Grantham.
Contrary to popular belief, there are times when I get inspiration from people other than tailors, designers, and other sartorial enthusiasts. When going casual, I often look to my friends for outfit ideas. Thanks to MFA on reddit, I’ve been able to become friends with Matt, who is one of the best and most creatively dressed people I’ve come to know. He is my inspiration for this post.
