A few days late on this sad news, but one of the progenitors of style as we know it passed away on the 10th. Tommy Roberts was a big influence on us at The Great Divide with his incredible style. Most importantly Mr. Robert's creations were never dull. What one gets most from his clothes is a sense of character; and character of course is of the essence with clothing. For all those not clued up on the man, have a look at the tremendous book on him by Paul Gorman. Emma Peel Pants also has a fair bit about him and his creations as well.
We all owe a great debt to Mr. Freedom.
