The Portraits Collection

In my last post about the Portraits collection from Penhaligon’s of London I covered the unveiling of the collection and introduced you to the various members of this mysterious Victorian family, their characters and their secrets.

Time has passed since then and I now have the pleasure of introducing two new members of the family, although Lady Blanche may disagree that either of these characters bring her any pleasure whatsoever, and I am sure she is plotting their demise as I type!

Clandestine Clara is unveiled at Lord George’s mistress and Roaring Radcliff as their illegitimate son!

My top five picks for September

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us his top five picks for September and gives you a chance to win the Oud De Nil fragrance from Penhaligon’s

UPDATE: The winner of the fragrance has been notified by email.

As Autumn comes along with cooler and wetter weather it’s time to assess our wardrobes and add a few new favourites. So with that in mind I’ve had a look around at our favourite brands and picked out my top five picks for September.

The Bag

First we have the DonniniS Doctor’s Medical Bag from Maxwell Scott Bags.

Having the Calvino briefcase in my bag armoury (see my post on it HERE) I can confirm that the quality of the bags from Maxwell Scott is second to none. With a classic vintage style look it’s a super stylish bag and it’s going to hold everything that you need.

Price £324

The Blazer

Next we have the Decker double breasted blazer from White Stuff. A different style for White Stuff I’m already a fan, and for me this is a must have piece for AW16/17

Made from a wool-mix herringbone tweed with a cool geometric print lining, it comes with a matching pocket square and a funky little lapel pin.

Price £145

The Fragrance

The Penhaligon’s Oud De Nil fragrance offers head notes of Bergamot and grapefruit, and base notes of Oud, Guaiac Wood, Resins and Amber. This fragrance is reminiscent of the atmosphere of a bygone era, and is the latest addition to the Trade Routes collection which I covered in a previous post HERE

That Dapper Chap is offering you the chance to win this fragrance. Entry is simple and at the bottom of this post.

Price £156.00

The Accessory

We all know the British weather! so a good umbrella is an essential piece of kit for any discerning gent. This M&S Collection umbrella is just the ticket and will provide the necessary shelter from those autumnal downpours.

Price £25.00

The Footwear

Okay, I’m biased but I love Base London shoes. As the weather gets cooler our thoughts turn to winter walks and kicking leaves in the park. These are the Troop boots in tan leather.

With brogue styling they’re a great sturdy boot and will see you through the cooler, wetter months


I hope you approve of my choices for September! Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
