I’m officially on holiday at the moment and without wishing to sound too smug am currently sat in a very tasteful apartment just across from the Boboli gardens in Florence enjoying a nicely chilled glass of white wine. Despite this soporific scenario I’m more than happy to pick up my laptop to inform you good people all about the latest Fred Perry x Nigel Cabourn collection which once again is rather wonderful. This time around Nigel has drawn inspiration from the photographic archive of Fred who can be seen preparing for the Davis cup, alongside various footballing legends who are all wearing heavy knits, tailored trousers and argyll socks. Anyway, cant hang around, I’m off to look at the largest collection of skeletons in Italy, ciao!
