Paddy Beat

This is the look for the forthcoming autumn, I think?

Brendan is modelling a dark suit of a comfortable fit with a white open-neck shirt. Out of shot, the trousers will be seen tapering from a well-stocked waistband to meet slightly scuffed black brogue shoes.

It is a look that was revived in the early 1980s and can be seen on the sleeve of The Pogues 'Red Roses For Me' and in a more sanitised form on 'If I Should Fall from Grace With God' LP.

I only mention this, because the 'look' is known in certain circles (circles who are qualified to comment, I may add) as 'Paddy Beat.' I googled it, and got other non-couture definitions for the term. So this post is purely to add to the sum of human knowledge.
