Shops: Sauma My o My Linkson Jack Wildsmith A Fine Pair of Shoes Opumo

As I’m spending my Easter-holidays in Amsterdam it’s a good time to share some outtakes from last weeks - via instagram.

imageFirst-time wear of the new Finealta denim, together with a chunky roll-neck sweater and my old field jacket. First-time wear of spring for those Superga sneakers as well.

Office-uniform. Caruso suit, Kamakura shirt, Viola Milano cashmere tie and Alfred Sargent shoes.

Shades of green, blue and hints of orange. Shirt by Sonrisa for Rose&Born, Weekday denim and Carmina string loafers.

imageThere can never be too much of this. Had a nice after-work last Friday while visiting “Samppanjamarkkinat” @Korjaamo. 

imageAs said, having Easter-vacation in Amsterdam. Had dinner at Hotel de Goudfazant, one of the best experiences in a long time and one of the top places I’ve visited - Really nice display and atmosphere, great service and good food.

During my trip in New York last month I got the chance to drop by and pay a visit at Isaia's showroom on the 5th Avenue.

A while ago I wrote about the collection as it was seen at Pitti Uomo for the first time, so I’m not gonna go there that much again but you can find my review and more pics from here. Although whereas the presentation at Pitti concentrated highly on the sportswear and casual selection, it was great to see the whole ensemble featuring also the more business- ja formal-oriented side of the line at the showroom.

Here’s few outtakes in terms of what will be seen during next fall and winter. Bold patterns (as usual), mixture of colors, interesting fabric choices and versatile combinations of textures.

Last day of the week with a couple meetings to go through. No need for a full suit so ended up going with a pretty much “uniform look” in flannel featuring what else but simple colors mainly in tones of blue and grey.

Wool blazer by Mabro and checked blue mtm-shirt by Isaia. Trousers made of lighweight dark grey flannel (Finealta) and lighter grey cashmere tie from Viola Milano. Pocket square by Schoffa and shoes (which definitely needed to be sweeped after taking the shot) made by Crockett&Jones for Paul Smith.

Korean Finealta released their new spring and summer collection last week. I had earlier got some sneak peeks of the collection but now that it’s available at the web shop it’s time to take a little closer look of my personal favorite in terms of trouser makers. 

Something old - something new

In the new collection there’s three new models in addition to old diversity (regular lightweight cotton chino trousers)  and roadster (5-pocket jeans like chino) which both now comes in new colors.

First one of new models is the Traveller - a flannel alike light grey colored pair made of soft cotton-jersey fabric. This is a pair made for (as the name says) for travelers who want to be comfortably but still appropriately dressed while on the run.

The model seems to be already sold out on the website but I really hope there will be more pairs coming up.

Secondly Finealta have made some new adjustments to their old “cargo” model and come up with a pair called Giacca - a model which details such as the barchetta pockets are inspired by features you normally see in Italian tailored jackets.

Third new model is the so called "David", named according the biblical story of David and Goliath. The denim used in the jeans is locally sourced from Korea and comes with nicely detailed camouflage print inside. If you’re looking a pair of “daddy jeans”, this is definitely something to take a closer look at. Easy to pair as well with a crew-neck cotton sweater for casual wear or dress-up and wear with a softly tailored sport coat. Closer look of David below.

"Sunday news" - Getting ready for summer
Recently got two new additions to the rotation - my first two pairs from Spanish Carmina. 
First pair is double monks made on the Simpson last in dark brown calf leather. Based on the first few wears the leather is smooth and as I expected pretty much on pair for example with Wildmsmith and Alfred Sargent exclusive range. These will probably age nicely and create nice patina over time.
Second pair is their string loafer made on the Uetam last in “forest green” suede. Haven’t yet got a chance to wear them but these will be my go-to shoes during the summer, no doubt. Perfect loafer.

Lardini recently opened their renewed website and as a part of that they launched their new journal. At the Journal they have started a series called “Lardini Talks” featuring interviews of some of the personalities linked to the “Lardini world”.

Few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to answer few questions and be featured at the series. Of course my answer was yes. Really honored and happy to be a part and in case you’re interested, you’ll find my answers from here.

And here’s one of my favorite outfits from the archives, featuring a Lardini silk-linen jacket, Schoffa mtm denim shirt and grenadine tie, Berwich trousers and Crockett&Jones suede loafers.
