Third shop (maybe) on the left on Cheshire Street - the men's vintage shop - has a great supply of silk scarves, not too sure about cravattes. It's the best men's vintage shop at the moment in London, closely followed by the Vintage Showroom on Earlham Street. Both are very pricey but they know what they're doing, and why.Further to the above: any thoughts on where I could get a smallish silk / similar scarf to wear under a shirt like a day cravatte? Or would it be eaier to just get a rectangle of silk friom a haberdashers and hem it?
Original Great Gatsby? http://totalvintage.com/image/cache/data/MVH0006/Robert-Redford-in-The-Gre-007-720x720.jpgCool, thanks. I've managed to convince myself that a cravat would be wrong with this particular get up, but like the idea in principle.
Other thing (and a ludicrously open-ended question): I've bought myself an off-white flat cap, for keeping the sun off my head at times when a big floppy sunhat isn't appropriate. It's good, and very versatile. But I'm sure there's some bit of a gangster film where someone wears something similar, and I have no idea what - the closest I can get is the brown caps that Michael and his bodyguards wear in Sicily in The Godfather. Any ideas?
