Tweed Run 2011, in Huntsman shooting suit
10 April 2011
The Tweed Run has been going for three years now and raises money for the charity Bikes4Africa. It involves a 10-mile ride through London’s busiest streets, including a saunter down Savile Row and a tea break in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. There are penny farthings, impressive moustaches and an all-pervading atmosphere of British civility.
It steps way over the line from style into costume. But there doesn’t mean there weren’t touches of flair in the shooting socks and action backs. Even Ewan McGregor’s pattern matching was pretty good.
Photographs are, unsurprisingly, by the wonderful Andy Barnham. Sorry about the last one. He does seem to bring out the poser in me.
