Bayode of Pokit
Bayode is tailor/proprietor of a bespoke tailoring shop in Soho. He specialises in suit-trousers that have a jodhpurs-like cut that tend not to go further down than ankle-height, and jackets that are short and fitted. As modeled by Bayode himself, the suits are contemporary on a slight retro tip; beautifully made-to-measure in the most luxurious tweeds or corduroys in rainbow colours.
And there are the hats. With extravagant heights, they're inspired by anything from Al Capone-era trillbies, high hats, ten gallon cowboy hats and, in this particular case, by the shape of ships. Always worn on the very top of one's head tipped just a touch to one side. Super cool!
