James Joyce Style

James Joyce in 1930 James Joyce James Jooyce in Overcoat James Joyce Joyce James Joyce in 1939

Do you obsess about showing the right amount of linen beneath your jacket sleeve? Do you coordinate tie, shirt and handkerchiefs meticulously? Do you worry about the tie knot during the day?

Perhaps James Joyce did that too. However, in that case, one doesn’t feel it. James Joyce seems to be taking it easy. He dwells in his clothing. He knows that a charming nonchalant style has little to do with technical mastery of clothing items, and a lot to do with how you relate emotionally to your clothing.

My Red Shoes


Black and brown shoes inhabited my shoe racks. Something new had to happen. Red shoes were the choice. I sent Italian leather to my shoemaker in Warsaw, and, as always, he made me a pair well-fitting of shoes, which were a very red pair of shoes too.


I expected that though, and I had a plan: black shoe wax. I new it would change the colour significantly but I wasn’t exactly sure of the result. Here it is, a much more subtle colour, although you still have that dandy touch, which red tends to produce.
