Introducing Percy Le Moo Moo

In which G.M. Norton receives a big surprise.

I recently made the acquaintance of two frightfully good eggs, Percy Le Moo Moo and Binty Bagshot. They make all sorts of things from bags, cushions and aprons to cravats and boxer shorts. What’s more, they are in Bury in Greater Manchestershire, which is only a few short miles from where I reside.
As they seemed so lovely and unable to resist a liberty print cravat and the prospect of a tweed coin purse complete with Tintin lining, I fired off an order on Etsy. The cravat and coin purse was posted out the very same day and arrived quickly and beautifully presented.
What’s more, realising that I’m quite the Tintin fan, they also sent a complimentary pocket square from the same fabric that lines the coin purse.

I really was tickled pink. The tweed coin purse was only £5 and the cravat was a very reasonable £22 (their cravats are usually around the £13.50 mark, but then this one is a liberty fabric, after all).
All three items are very well made by people that care. The coin purse is already getting plenty of use (and goes rather well with my key wallet, don't you think?) and I gave the pocket square a first outing yesterday.

It makes you feel warm and fuzzy to support a handmade enterprise, even more so when it’s a local business. I plan to return for more goodies soon.

If you like my waffle, chances are you will also enjoy Binty Bagshot’s witty turn of phrase on the Percy Le Moo Moo Facebook page. Do give them a like, follow them on Instagram and all that jazz.
