Mr Thresher & Mr Glenny
The Spirit of Mr Thresher
Mr Thresher was always the go-ahead sort. These days clothes conceived in a "Thresher" spirit will appeal to the faster set among our clientele: those to whom "black tie" is an invitation to improvise, for whom the suede shoe is not confined to weekends.
The Spirit of Mr Glenny
Mr Glenny tended towards the conventional. If you seek the orthodox response to all those pressing questions - how many buttons, how wide the trouser, double or single for evening wear, midnight blue or black – his sage advice will ensure you raise no eyebrows.
The Spirit of Thresher & Glenny
Most of us of balance both impulses. We may have Thresher days and Glenny days: Thresher occasions and Glenny functions.
As in a well-regulated Parliament with two strong parties, it’s this essential tension that keeps us in balance.
Too much of one is never ideal, while an absence of either is a recipe for dullness or, heaven forbid, dandification. Self-expression is one thing, self-indulgence quite another - as both Mr Thresher and Mr Glenny would agree.
