When we first interviewed maverik London tailor The Earl of Bedlam, aka Mark Wesley,  I toyed with the idea of drawing sketches from his  pictures. But there’s something indefinably elusive about the likeness of Mr Wesley; like his spirit it will not be captured. So, here in all their glory are some rather dashing snaps of the Earl. He seems to be demonstrating what to do, and what not to do with a luxury hand-rolled silk pocket square.  If you are not familiar with his work, which has been praised by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, please do take a look at the end of the interview.
