My dad was quite critical of organised religion, so we kids were never scuttled out to church. I don’t know if there is a Judeo-Christian God, but if there is, I wouldn’t blame Him for everything that’s wrong in the world. I suppose music is a devotional vocation for me, and even if you’re not religious that thing of aspiring to some kind of greatness can be a very useful tool. When you hear pure devotion, though – like Brian Wilson aiming to honour God on Pet Sounds – it’s a lot more powerful than the average love song.

It’s not often you pair black with browns, but for summer the combination of black and tan can go work at the office but also transition to the evening for a night out.

These Edward Green double monks make a reliable companion for a busy day. The black pebble grain gives the leather a rougher texture, keeping the normally formal black from veering too far into the conservative spectrum. Along with a punched medallion design on the toe’s cap and double-thick soles, this unique piece of footwear balances the outfit.

The jacket, a wool-silk-linen blend from Canali, in a dark charcoal-brown fabric with a golden windowpane mimics the tones of the shoe. Paired with taupe wool-cotton trousers from Samuelsohn, the outfit wears cool for the warmer weather.
