Paolo Hewitt: Ronnie Lane Top 5 & the Iconic Popover Shirt

Author, fashionista and friend of Pellicano Paolo Hewitt kindly gave us 5 minutes  from his writing schedule to have a chat.

“Was sat in a library thinking about Ronnie Lane when the phone rang. It was Mick, head of Pellicano Menswear. He wanted to know what I thought about popover shirts. I knew only one, that worn by Jagger on Ready Steady Go. ‘There are others,’ he told me. Let me send you some pics.’

They arrived an hour later. There were shots of Kennedy, Agnelli and the Beach Boys wearing the style. But what really caught my eyes were the shots of Miles and Dylan wearing them. At various points these men have dressed exquisitely.

I called him back. ‘I like the shirt’s fluidity,’ I told him, ‘the way it can move between peasant and sharp looking. Let’s make some.’

‘What are you working on,’ he asked.

‘Thinking about a Ronnie Lane biog.’

‘How about you send me a top ten Lane song chart?’

‘Too busy. I’ll send you five instead.’

‘Done. By the way he would have loved a Popover himself.’

Never a truer word spoken
