Grey Fox Column

David Evans: With winter’s chilly grip upon us, I find I’m wearing a hat more. I’ve become very attached to a Christys Epsom fur felt snap-brim racing trilby. It’s not a name that trips lightly off the tongue, but it’s genuine rabbit fur and made in England. As you’d expect, the brim has the property … Keep Reading

The Suits of Roger Moore

in Fashion/Features/Further Reading by
Roger Moore

Nick Guzan: Roger Moore may have only played James Bond on screen for twelve years (and, even at that, he’s the longest-serving 007 to date), but it was a role that he and his fans cherished for the rest of his life. Moore brought life into the Bond role, after a string of arguably uninspired performances in the later Sean Connery outings, who was tiring of the role he made famous, and Australian newbie George Lazenby. He also brought, for the first time, an individualistic sense of style that Moore himself had cultivated over his decades-long career. Moore was noted for…

Eartha Kitt

Eartha Kitt

Sunday Swift: Whether you know her from her singing songs like Santa Baby and Monotonous, or for her various roles in television, film and theatre, the name Eartha Kitt is associated with very specific images – and those images are usually tinged delightfully with camp. She imbued overt and even hyperbolic sexuality, with a slight but athletic figure, usually draped in an evening gown with a slit up to the top of her thigh, smouldering at the camera through irresistibly sultry eyes. Her performances were usually accompanied with cat-like growls and purring rolled r’s, making her the perfect actress to play…

Mr. Erbil

Mr Erbil

Elizabeth Fitt: Relaxing over shisha, at a cafe in the English Quarter of Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan, the three founding members of Mr Erbil are all smiles and a reassuring grasp of the English language rare in these parts. Ahmed Nauzad, sports a rather fine navy vest (bottom button undone) with matching polka dot pocket handkerchief (Presidential Fold). Goran Pshtiwan and Omer Nihad are lower-key, in Italianate slacks and leather jackets. They sip black tea from small glasses. “We are never involved in religion or politics. We have many different religions in our gentlemen’s club – it doesn’t matter, we accept everyone,…

The Rational Women

in Features by
Rational Women

Sara Harris: On April 5th 1899, a woman took the stand as star witness for the prosecution in Regina v Sprague at the Kingston Quarter Sessions. The previous October the woman had been on a cycling trip in Surrey. Arriving for lunch at The Hautboy Hotel in the village of Ockham she had been refused entry to the hotel coffee-room because she was clad in ‘rationals’. Offended by the landlady’s offer of catering in the (less salubrious) hotel bar parlour, the woman had promptly turned tail and left in disgust. Unfortunately for Martha Sprague, landlady of The Hautboy Hotel, her disgruntled…
