British Dapperness, Straight to Your Door

This time of year, tweed starts popping up on everybody...

... in other places.

Although even in LA, you never know when you might need to go from a pool to a tweed-friendly library...

... -themed bar.

Give a royal wave to The Gentleman’s Journal, an impressively British webshop for tweed jackets, swim trunks and other debonair stuff you won’t find within a few thousand miles of Melrose, online now.

After just a few minutes scanning the site, you’ll probably see yourself in a Match Point/Johansson scenario pretty quickly. (Um, the first half, with the tennis and the mansion day-drinking and the... clothes.) You could go for an impromptu skeet shoot with that tweed William Evans shooting jacket over a flannel Gieves & Hawkes shirt. You could tuck a leather flask into your raincoat. You could briefly consider a raincoat.

But okay. In the short term, you’re probably just going to wear one of the Turnbull & Asser shirts with some chinos by the fireplace at Warwick while swirling a snifter of brandy.

Or whatever.

As long as you’re swirling something.
