LC Calais Vest
He spoke of Dunkirk, repeating to me a story it seemed he’d told a thousand times to a hostile audience. How the English did evacuate the French and English evenly, no matter what his own father insists.

We walk his grounds at dusk, about 4 hectares, through the hedge rows, the partially built lighthouse. His style is formal yet personal. I remember his vest, unbuttoned, glen plaid, vintage. It wasn’t stiff English, not French panache, not Italian cool.
It was him, a man apart.
“I was there.” He nods to the distant eastern lights. “I fought that day.”
Calais Vest (No. 4358). Triple washed rayon blend for casual authentic feel. One upper patch pocket. Two lower patch pockets. Fully lined in blue canvas. Antique brass belt buckle at back waist.
