Le Sikh, C’est Chic

Ask, and ye shall receive: an extra helping of MOTH star Waris Ahluwalia for your viewing pleasure, that is. Our favorite beturbaned member of the *bon ton* is pictured here with gal-about-town Jessica Joffe at a Theory party for artist David Ellis the other night.
Despite appearances, they were not in fact singing show tunes, but yes, Jessica is wearing a leather gunnysack of some kind. Waris, on the other hand, impeccable as usual, is wearing a natty navy blue pinwale corduroy suit by Waris’ London maker’s, Norton & Sons of Savile Row. (We told you we’d wrest the name of his tailor from him eventually.) If you’re unfamiliar with the storied firm, founded in 1821, they’ve also made suits in years past for Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Gary Cooper, Alfred Hitchcock and David Niven—so Waris is in good sartorial company, to say the least.
As for Jessica, she gets a lot of grief from the kids at Gawker but she’s actually a sweetheart who reminds us of a less innocent Audrey Hepburn in a lot of ways. And to be fair she usually looks a hell of a lot better than this.
