Ed’s Tailor “Almost Vomited” Over New Customer

As Guido exclusively revealed yesterday, Ed was wearing a suit by Puff Daddy tailor Spencer Hart. The Savile Row man has now broken his silence, telling GQ that he “almost vomited when I heard a politician was wearing a Spencer Hart suit.” The sticher soon slipped into PR mode though, adding: “I have to grudgingly agree that he does look sharper, slicker, crisper, cooler, fitter than his arch rival in No. 10.” Guido is not sure Dave’s tailor Timothy Everest would agree…

Puff Mili: Ed in Rapper’s Tailor’s Suit

As ever Guido likes to bring you the conference fashion news. Justine Miliband was wearing a LK Bennett floral print dress and LK Bennett shoes. Her jewellery was an 18th birthday present.

Ed was in a Spencer Hart suit. The Savile Row tailor cuts suits for Puff Daddy/P Diddy and cost the better part of a grand. With a nod to the cost of living crisis his shirt and tie were from M&S. Up the workers.

And You Thought the Worst of the Cuts Were Over

Since Guido questioned just what was going on with George Osborne’s footballers that look like lesbians’ hair cut last week, coif connoisseurs have been queueing up to pass judgement. Brent Pankhurst of Pankhurst Barbers delivers his cutting verdict to GQ.

“This looks like its been cut by a ladies’ hairdresser to me. It’s far too round on the sides and with that flick-y bit at the back it’s all a little drag queen-ish. It just looks like Anne Diamond’s hair.”

Catwalk hair stylist Matt Mulhall snipes:

“Wispy feathered sides and back on a man of a certain age is a definite no-no. It’s so bizarre.”

The fashion police have spoken…

Mrs Clegg in Zara and Topshop

Every year Guido likes to bring you the most important news from the leader’s speeches at conference: the fashion. Today he can reveal that Mrs Clegg will be wearing a  Zara top with Topshop shoes.

This is to signify the strong links between Spanish design (Zara) and British high street manufacturing. Apparently.

And now you know.

What Is Going on With George Osborne’s Hair?

Guido has noticed a distinct change in George Osborne’s hairstyle over the last few days. Gone is his old, fluffy, classic posh look with the hair pushed back revealing the early stages of a recession. In its place is a boyish pudding bowl cut, pushed forwards, taking years off him:

The new coif was displayed in all its glory during the speech on the economy this morning:

Guido is reminded of the infamous Sunday Sport feature “Footballers who look like lesbians“…

SamCam Gets Her Tat Out

Dave has ditched the Alan Partridge footwear for sandals and gone for a nautical navy number as he takes another holiday, this time to a beach cafe in Cornwall. The PM might be recovering from a bad back but it is he who is offering support to his better half in this picture. Blue skies mean a blue top and shorts for SamCam. No dolphins in shot as we look out onto the shore, other than the one on Samantha’s ankle of course…

Pasty Dave and tanned SamCam buying some squid in a fish market on the south western coast of Portugal. Where could he have got his footwear inspiration from?

Chuka and His Comedy Over-Sized Watches

Standard columnist Anne McElvoy’s astute observation last night got Guido thinking:

Turns out Chuka is a sucker for clocks and has quite a collection of over-priced, over-sized watches. First there’s his blingy chrome number:

Then there’s his more community-friendly leather-strapped classic:

Which evidently keeps you looking super cool when holding a mic:

Or when you’re the cover star of a politics mag. Make sure the camera can see it:

Trashy Will Smith doesn’t even wear a watch:

But as anyone knows, if you buy your suits on Savile Row, accessorising with a matching watch is a must:

And finally, if in doubt, buy one that is literally wider than your wrist:

We’re not winding you up. Everything you’ve heard is true, Chuka really does have a big watch…

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
