Under ‘Business Wear’ in his book
A C of Men’s Fa hion, Hardy Amies wrote, ‘Even if your business is disreputable, you ought to look businesslike. To be serious, it obviously means a suit made in dark cloth, and a shirt and collar if not in white, then in a pale clean colour. Such clothes are meant to inspire confidence.’ It’s no surprise, then, that the label he founded has created pinstriped tailoring fit for the 21st-century man. A trend for autumn, whatever your business. Suit, £650, hardyamies.com.
