The Flying Pheasant Shirt for Ladies, From Cordings of Piccadilly

Photos by Salt Water New England
For pheasant season (today is the first day in northern New England and England),  the Flying Pheasant Shirt for Ladies from Cordings.  With silky soft cotton, and printed in Italy, it is, as Cordings described, a "quirky, quintessentially British design" shirt for autumn.

  1. Love the increasing emphasis on English style and culture. The whole preppy business can get pretty tiresome (with apologies). How about a feature on Jermyn Street shirts for men?

    1. "The whole preppy business" is securely rooted in Anglophilia and in English traditions in the first place.

    2. Up to a point, Lord Copper.

    3. "Rooted" means "starting point," which is sort of self-explanatory.

    5. If you want a British-made shirt from Jermyn Street, your choice is now limited to Budd (made in Sussex), Emma Willis (in Gloucester), Turnbull & Asser (in Gloucestershire) and the garish Grosvenor (in Northern Ireland). There are now more British shoemakers than shirtmakers in Jermyn Street. The foreign made brands (e.g. Thomas Pink, TM Lewin, Hawes & Curtis) are still there but best avoided.

  2. Just received a couple pair of corduroys that I purchased at Cordings’s fall trouser sale. Beautiful quality, nice thick corduroy, and deeply saturated colors.

    1. Sartre, you once said "Clothing makes the Man". How true.

    2. I wear Cordings therefore I am. I took advantage of the trouser offer too. :)
