The Perfect Adhoc Shoot

So, Steve Coogan recently popped into our Brighton store for a fitting on his latest bespoke suit, and by chance so did Faye, who was in for a fitting on her red gabardine suit. At the same time, Emily, our Head of E-Commerce was dog sitting her friends dog, Rufus, (he usually resides at The Old Rectory Estate, check it out!)

It all just seemed to say ‘PHOTOSHOOT’.

So, we called on Xoë Kingsley for some makeup; Simon Webster for the hair; and got Kenny McCracken to rush in and come up with a photo.

Kenny used a comping technique to create this amazing photo, each aspect was shot individually; first Rufus, then Faye and finally myself and Steve.

Steve is wearing a 2 piece loose canvas mohair suit, and I’m in a double breasted suit (to match my chin).

Faye and Rufus, patiently waiting.

It all went a bit mental, especially with Steve needing his suit adjusted while people waited and set.!

Sometimes it’s worth doing spontaneous things in life, or we wouldn’t get the sort of picture that we have now.

Thanks again to everyone who dropped everything and came over, to Steve who is on fire at the moment with This Time, Alan Partridge.

And Steve, I promise I will sort out my messy kitchen!!
