FASHION: Gentlemen, this one is especially for you

12 Sep

Simon Carter in Wendover. I know, his parking’s terrible.

Well, hello!

There I was, wandering around the lovely market town of Wendover the other day (about 15 mins south of Aylesbury), when I came across a shop that had just opened its doors for the first time – none other than the fantastic Simon Carter, purveyor of supercool cufflinks, menswear, leather goods and other man-essentials.

Darwin Lacewing jade cufflinks, £75

If you don’t already know the brand, Simon Carter is a London (and international) success story that’s now developing stand-alone stores outside the capital. Aside from the new venture in Wendover, there’s also a shop in Great Missenden and apparently one in the pipeline for Yorkshire. Quintessentially British, it doesn’t take itself too seriously, allowing blokes a flash of personality at work without resorting to horrific novelty ties.

Half newspaper delivery boy, half cool Soho satchel and all in this season’s supertrendy blue. Love it! Canvas/leather, £100.

I had a quick gander around the bijoux store in Wendover.  It stocks mostly shirts, luggage and accessories – so perfect for picking up a business flourish or a present for a difficult husband. Yes husband, I’m talking about you.

So there you have it. Always delighted to stumble across something new and splendiferous, and relieved that one of my readers Ricky will be placated – he’s been on at me for a bloke’s fashion feature for ever. There you go, my old china, this one’s for you.

    Great post… Just told hubby about this and it appears he knows all about Simon Carter! Who knew?! He’s interested in going to the shop, which means we can all go to Wendover and of course combine it with a trip to Rumsby’s!

    I love Simon Carter stuff. Thanks for letting me know he’s in Wendover – will check it next week. Muddy Stilettos rocks!’

    Now arguable I am always up to date with the latest men’s fashion and pride myself on looking good for less but I would quite happily run to this shop with £100 in hand for this bag as it looks fab. With autumn fast approaching these colours will fit right in and will look good for a man in any profession as its very smart but still oh so casual. Anyway nuff said.

      You sound like a man about to buy a bag. Mention Muddy Stilettos if you do, LOL!
