Put This On: Season 2 - Episode 4: Eccentric Style
Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits London, where we visit with a few of the distinctive personalities that help make London a special place.
Guy Hills makes tweeds with the colors of the London streets- including reflective stripes for cyclists.
David Saxby went from being a vintage dealer to recreating traditional styles in his own factories with the workers who’d been laid off as clothing manufacture left England.
We visit Cordings, an unusual outdoor clothing store that Eric Clapton felt so strongly about he bought it.
And we learn a few ways to tie a scarf. Plus our sponsor, Mailchimp, and of course Rudiments with Dave Hill.
This is the fourth episode in our six-episode second season. In this season, we visit the three greatest men’s style cities in the world, as chosen by our readers - New York, Milan and London.
