MY BRITISH ARCHIVE, THE WAY WE WERE 1968-1983

St Johns Wood, London. England. 1975<br />
At the Eton v Harrow annual cricket match at Lords. An old Etonian walks through a group of casually dressed scholars. He is wearing a grey topper and matching velvet trimmed double breasted Regency style cutaway tail coat, with a wing collared shirt and cravat. Buckskin grey gloves and black and white two-tone shoes complete his ensemble. Surely, the height of sartorial elegance?
