poss a bit of a long shot..im being lazy

anyone know any good vintage sites...and also how id best describe that sort of look [obviously youll need to know what nick drake suits look like cos im no help!!

i want to find a suit for my gorgeous skinny rock star dp to wear this summer...he's only ever going to have one suit...so if its going to be dated come a few years, it may aswell start off that way too.

nick cave and nick drake - slightly different styles!!!!!

Camden Market, Greenwich market, Antiquarius in Pimlico (if it is still there)

is that that skinny, slightly fifties look?

beansontoast Thu 21-Apr-05 16:19:09

def skinny, straight legs.
longish jacket? ,but im not sure if thats cos he has short legs/long body? im a bit rubbish..

Enid Thu 21-Apr-05 16:20:52

yes longish jacket, very fifties, languid holding of fag an essential accessory, will think about it

White shirt with big and rather pointy collars also essential.

Which other rock star can sing and dance in a suit and look cool?

Tell you what, if I find him, you can keep the suit and I'll take him home

Serenity, are we talking Nick Cave or beansontoast's DP?

I remembered another rock artist who looked damned good in a suit: Andrew Eldritch in the video for Dominion. Guess what my DH wore when we got married...

Also looking good in suits was Madonna in the video for Vogue.

Nick Cave styliee - blimey. I would imagine most vintage places online and, as beachyhead suggested, Camden etc.

What about Billy Rocker websites (is that the right expression? ex hubby would know but we divorced last year so phoning him up would a bit weird!)
