Danish Mismo has established a solid supporter base. And it has happened for a reason. For myself visiting the stand for not just see the collection but also to have a chat with Adam (the co-founder and owner of Mismo) is one of the routines during Pitti week.

The visit and collection for upcoming spring and summer did not disappoint, once again Mismo came up with an inspiring range featuring their popular basic pieces together with some seasonal and new innovations.

imageNo meetings means denim (and naturally no socks) in the office. No surprises, playing with simple and solid colors.

As mentioned yesterday, white cotton slacks are one my personal summer staples in terms of any even little more dressed-up occasions. But when it comes to those more casual set ups, four out of five times my choice is a classic field jacket and light colored denim. The rest depends on the day, this time ended up with a lightweight merino-wool crew neck sweater, white button-up to keep the balance and finally spice it up a little with those Buttero tanino-sneakers.

Weekly inspiration - spring blazer and hints of orange
Fairly often I use to go back to my basic favorites and for warm spring & summer season white cotton slacks are definitely one of them. Combined with a blue (this time made of a little “washed”-look cotton-linen blend fabric) blazer the look is versatile and easy “go-to”-look wherever you’re heading. In case it get’s too warm - just throw the unstructured blazer to your bag, roll up the sleeves of your shirt and you’re good to go.
Blue suede is way too often underrated, so the loafers by Alfred Sargent are a good choice if you’re looking something a bit more “individual”.

No compromises but the best in everything, aiming to create instant classics that will last for years in terms of design and durability. 

That’s what Mismo basically is. As expected, Adam and Rikke have done great job once again and created a collection that’s maybe the best that’s been seen from them so far.

As usual the collection presents some new materials and mixtures such as the distressed leather in black and “dark tan” seen in the pics above. There’s also new developments in technical fabrics and the lightweight polyester blends featured in the “casual” collection will probably be a favorite for many. In terms of models, there’s gonna be a new backpack, some new innovations in tote bags and also an interesting interpretation of a weekend bag that can be used as a backpack as well. And no worries, the classic canvas fabrics and classic models such as as the M/S soft work bag are still featured.

Also, find the post I wrote about their S/S ´14 collection from here and the other posts regarding Mismo from here.

I’ve actually been taking the winter season sales pretty easily as I’ve felt that there has been no special needs for me at the moment.

However, during the last couple of weeks, last weekend especially I was kind of “forced” to make few snatches and thought I might share them here as well.

1) Double-breasted suit by Rose&Born in dark grey herringbone wool

I had had it in mind for a while now that I could try and find myself a new suit in grey, hopefully something that would work as separate (the jacket at least) as well. Had an hour to spend in Stockholm on Monday as I was there in business and decided to spend it at Rose&Born, hoping I would find something - and I did indeed. 

As pictured I found a dark grey herringbone wool suit from their private line. Double-breasted (4x2), soft shoulders, very lightweight construction and three patch pockets makes the jacket pretty much exactly what I was looking for. And the trousers with side adjusters (and no belt loops) fitting me perfectly were a nice bonus.

Also found a nice spread collar button-up made of pique cloth in burnt orange. That will definitely make a great addition to the my summer rotation.

2) Viola Milano grenadine ties in forest green and burgundy

First of all there’s probably no ties that are more versatile than basic grenadines, which are as suitable with the most conservative business dress as they are when paired with light denim, casual button-up shirts and soft tailored sport coats.  Secondly, with subtle colors such as burgundy or forest green you can never go wrong. Not on sale but couple of complements to the rotation from Viola Milano.

3) Berno bracelets and accessories

During Pitti Uomo I had the pleasure once again meet Olof; not only a good friend and editor for the Swedish manolo.se but also an owner of recently launched accessories brand Berno.

From bracelets and watch straps to elastic belts they offer decent products featuring inspiring designs with very affordable price range.

A man who wears a suit for work or who needs to carry a laptop and a bunch of papers from one meeting to another simply needs a bag. Some may value a back bag or some kind of a tote for example but for most of men the choice is a briefcase of some kind.

Jesse from Put This On once wrote that the briefcase “basics” largely breakdown along these more or less serious lines: 1) black is a little more serious than brown 2) Hard is a little more serious than soft and 3) a refined aesthetic is a little more serious than a rough one.

(one way is to match all your bags)

For the most part the above mentioned notes can be very fine distinctions but in the big picture with these lines you can pretty easily find the right bag for yourself. If you’re working within an industry with a very conservative dress code you may also need to go with a black (hard) leather briefcase to keep your looks compatible. On the other hand if your normal outfit includes jeans and a blazer or a cardigan you probably have more latitude regarding the color and materials of your briefcase as well.

(Clematis Ginza briefcase by The Armoury)

Some people think that your bag should match your shoes and other accessories such as belt or gloves. And if you feel this way, you’re almost necessarily going need two different kind of bags; one black and one in some shade of brown. Why I personally like brown more is that whereas black is always black (and works with black), with brown you can play by the different tones of the color and easily match your dark brown shoes for example to the cognac colored briefcase and hazelnut gloves.

(Another kind of matching - Scarosso)

(“25-hour Palissy briefcase” by Oppermann London is a great option for short business trips)

And finally I picked five different kind of briefcases (all different kind of shades of brown and with a different kind of price range) to help you find your favorite.

As so many times already seen this season, orange is the color to go for. 
I haven’t use the pictured Valstar cotton blouson much but today I decided to wear it as my girlfriend wished and proposed so. Jacket combined with a lambswool rollneck sweater from Uniqlo, jeans from Weekday and Buttero sneakers, which I still feel appropriate (and better looking) to wear without socks even though days are already getting colder.
