Despite the fact my school days are long gone, I can't help but be compelled every August to consider what I'd wear this year if I were to return. It's that ritual of starting a-fresh after what seemed like endless weeks of relaxation and the only good thing to come from that anxious feeling of dread I had when the days of schooling drew nearer.
Although as a teenager I certainly wouldn't have wanted to dress as smartly as I do now, I've found my perfect 2011 school uniform. Starting with a bold striped shirt - I picked one up in vintage store Colours in Berlin at the beginning of this year and ever since have been obsessed - Paul Smith does a great one which is on sale now. Of course, no good schoolboy will be without a quality notebook and fieldnotes are the only ones for me this year.
