Taking A Stand
Sometimes, the old ways are the best. Rather than draping your beautifully cut Savile Row suit over a spare chair, seek out Sam Brown’s bespoke gentleman’s valets, which he handmakes and finishes from selected hardwoods, lacquers and oils.
The Hatstand Valet (from £3,350, RM18,200) in oak or walnut will appeal to anyone with a slightly macabre, rock ’n’ roll sense of humour: a resin mould skull stands ready for you to rest your hat on. Pair it with a trouser bar, clip hanger and an accessory tray, and you’ve got yourself a faithful wardrobe guardian for life.
