Crisp English Style for Winter

Toasty warm with the sense of a cheery ol’ chap

Theater Charlotte is presenting “The Foreigner” from Jan. 25 – Feb. 10. The play revolves around a couple of Englishmen, Charlie Baker and Staff Sgt. Froggy LeSueur visiting a fishing lodge in Georgia. This comedy is full of intrigue as Charlie wants to just be left alone, so they feign that he does not know a word of English. He has to keep up the ruse as he hears the secrets and gossip of the local townsfolk in this classic comedy by Larry Shue.

“The Foreigner” was the inspiration for a winter wardrobe of English-inspired looks for the holiday season. British style is trademarked with slim cuts, skinny pants and checked patterns. Military-inspired details are a classic winter staple of epaulets, double breasted jackets, chest pockets and heavy wools.

A very special thanks to Fidel Montoya and Keith Alyea of Silverfly Men’s Boutique located in the Metropolitan at 1111 Metropolitan Ave., Suite 150 (silverflybrands.com). Thanks also to Caroline Cook of FROCK Shop for the use of her new shop space, opening in January 2013 at 901 Central Ave. (frockshoprevival.com).
