Review: British GQ’s “A Black-tie Invitation from Henry Poole”

Posted on November 1, 2012


(“GQ”)

British GQ’s latest guide to Black Tie couldn’t be more English, drawing as it does on the sage advice of Henry Poole tailors.  It is Savile Row through and through, including the preference for grosgrain lapels over satin, waistcoats over cummerbunds, marcella shirts over pleated and turndown collars over wing.

At times like this I like to pretend that Canada is still a Dominion and I’m technically a British subject. (Damn that Canadian Citizenship Act of 1947.)
