This is the blog of Mr & Mrs Blockert. One is a diplomat with a mid life crisis who needed to spread his views on all things popular to the whole world, the other a journalist and keen photographer who goes along with this to humour her husband. Here you will find music, fashion, photography and popular culture in general. And there will be ties. Lots of ties.
Style Icon 56: Jacques Tati.
The golden age of leisurewear.
Diplomatic Ties part 220: Drake’s
Style Icon 55: Theophilus London.
Trinidad born, Brooklyn based rapper has already become a darling of the fashion magazines. His style is eclectic but I prefer when he keeps it relatively simple. Reminds me of the Jamaican rude boys of the 60s.
Diplomatic Ties part 219: Borrelli.
Diplomatic Ties part 218: Ovadia & Sons.
All linen except the shirt. Hot weather dapper.
Outtakes & Remakes 26.
Originally Diplomatic Tie 62. Lots of blues, the grenadine tie (Drake’s) gives texture.
Style Icon 54: Cate Blanchett.
One of very few movie stars today that has a little bit of the old Hollywood style and glamour. Great actress, always trying to push the envelope. And she can wear a suit!
Diplomatic Ties part 217: Pierre Balmain.
A vintage Balmain tie in mint condition. Lots of different patterns going on here, too many probably, but the colours keep it together.
