I have chosen something for the men out there this week again. I paid a visit to Delphi's Designs, which has three shops spread across London City. It stocks a range of male and female clothing including outfits, accessories and tattoos.
I chose the Grax II outfit which comes with black leather pants and a top layer containing a red and grey argyle pattern sweater over an untucked white shirt. Both the pants and jumper come with prim cuffs and the outfit is nicely textured. The outfit is reasonably price and is transfer so you can buy it for the man in your life if not for yourself - well Christmas is approaching!
Delphi's Designs can be found in London City 3 - Victoria here and in London City 1 - Soho and Regent's Park here and here.
