I’m obsessed with style. It’s a bit of a curse (albeit a fabulous curse) because I constantly feel compelled to scrutinize things, examining and weighing every detail for aesthetic merit. That being said, automobile design is something I’m quite passionate about.

We here at WIJW are into what we call “no comprise brands,” and a Rolls Royce’s exquisite design, technological superiority, and old world craftsmanship, puts this car very very high on the list.

I’ve often fantasized about having a vintage Rolls Royce and so you might understand how thrilled I was when our weekend at Rose Cottage included driving about in a 1988 Rolls Royce Silver Spur!

The Silver Spur marked a distinct change in traditional RR design to a more modern vision, implementing a squared off body and rectangular headlights. Of course, bespoke craftsmanship and details are evident everywhere in this design—from the rich paint, Connolly leather, deep pile carpet, and burl wood—all the luxurious elements that have made Rolls Royce a legend.

Enjoying this exquisite cream and chocolate Silver Spur I’m sporting a Tom Ford “Country Jacket” in a dark brown wide wool check, brown cotton corduroy pant, sun glasses and saddle leather loafers, vintage brown silk pocket square, and my fragrance is Creed Royal-Oud.

    Somewhere in 1981, Roger Moore is looking for his Roller… Also touches of Georgina Grenville in that Meisel Versace campaign….

    James,

    You look so country squire here! Of course the RR is my favorite car of all time, and I have many fond memories of riding around in them and sometimes even driving them!

    One of my favorite looks ever — and that’s saying a lot!

    I’ve dreamed of owning a vintage Rolls Royce myself, and hiring a great-looking chauffeur to drive me around!

    Lovely!
    I have a photo similar to this inside the door to my closet, for inspiration when dressing every morning.. It was taken in the 70ies, timeless!
