Visitor Tabs

Description

Hardy Amies and Richard Whiteley discuss the latest in men’s fashions in this Calendar News piece originally broadcast on 20th April, 1977.  The short interview takes place outside the old Hepworth’s building in Leeds.

Richard Whiteley interviews Hardy Amies outside in Leeds.  He asks Amies about what he’s wearing and what makes a well-dressed man.  They discuss the width of jacket lapels and whether fashion is only for those under 30.  Whiteley, dressed in a tan suit, canary yellow tie, and bright striped shirt, asks if he is dressed fashionably.  Amies responds that he can tell the suit is at least two years old because of the size of the lapels.
