Mr Trickett as... The Lavender Loverman

Ok so we’ve mentioned the Paninaro thing before but this is a more faithful take on what was – for a time – the only way to dress while eating butties in Bologna, bocadillos in Barcelona and sandwiches in Stalybridge. The phrase ‘a hint of lavender’ is commonly used to denote someone being a bit ‘light on their feet’ but we’re not interested in such prejudices and are reclaiming the phrase to describe the Henri Lloyd Consort jacket that completes a very smart look. Nice cardy too, a bit like something a Radio One roadshow host from 1976 would have worn.
