Friday Cool – Galimard Delivers

We’d looked through the catalogue and made our choices. Lady Peanut went for two perfumes, L’Ete Dernier and Feminissime. She also got a lovely scarf and a lovely scented candle.


Meanwhile on the man front I maintained my commitmemt to Galiamard by buying their new aftershave, Bel Canto or Beautiful Song which is for me the best translation. Look it up explore,get lost in translation and enjoy the moment.

Friday Cool – Galimard Revisited

Just in time to tempt us for Christmas, Galimard send us a flyer to tempt us again so I’ve got my eye on a selection box of six fragrances and a larger bottle of Bel Canto. Just waiting for Lady P to get her selection in and then we will place our order!

Friday Cool – Shirts for the Wardrobe


Cox of Malvern carry stock of Olymp European non iron shirts. This one is perfect for smart casual with its polka dot trim cuffs and collar, and white buttons and Red Cross stitching. This is done in their “Modern Fit” which is fitted to eliminate excess material but not so fitted that it looks like a second skin. This is a very neat tailored look. Perfect for under a tailored jacket.


Wrangler have put together a lovely turquoise and navy check over a cream base for those short sleeved casual shirt which perfectly compliments their jeans range.

Friday Cool – The Summer Hat


This morning was spent tracking down the perfect Summer hat and after much anguish and debate a Denton Panama style was settled on. A classic genuine Panama from M & S came close but Lady P felt it was just too flimsy for my somewhat clumsy care. To be honest I was happy with all of them and was quite taken with the light grey trilby but it wasn’t the hat for the classic car revival we are going to.

Friday Cool – Garbs and Carbs

Shelsley Nostalgia is just around the corner. Worcestershire’s very own Goodwood Festival, held at the famous Shelsley Walsh hill climb. A snappy jacket from Gurteen and some Chinos should cover the Garbs for the occasion. 

Shoes by Bugatti or Imac will also suffice, while a Summer Trilby or Panama will shade the head.
