British Autumn - Kent, UK

The Look: Jacket;  Malcolm Levine, 10 years old (Malcolm has now left Chiltern Street for the US). Trousers; Gap, this year.  Shirt; T. Burrows, James Street, W1.

"Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humour, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here is Nick Baker in his patch of woodland in Kent, where he escapes from London to recharge. He always looks rather elegant, in an understated way. He is very discriminating and his forte is finding classic designer items in the sales. He is a great fan of T. Burrows in James Street W1, near St Christopher's place. There will be more on T. Burrows (Michael Gennoe and Alan Murray) later, the shop is worth an entry of it's own, stylists from various European fashion mags can often be seen nipping in there to check it out.
