Style, quality, fit and aesthetics
My name is Atte Rytkönen, a Helsinki-based guy in his thirties, lawyer by profession and #menswear-editor by passion.
DressLikeA.com is a blog about men’s style, quality clothing and beautiful aesthetics as seen by me. All content you see on the blog is curated by me. In addition to my work and menswear I am passionate about quality burgers, champagne and my beautiful better half.
DressLikeA got started in 2011 as inspirational board for myself. I wanted to share my inspiration with like-minded men. I wanted to share the pictures and stories I came across during the time I spent searching, learning and developing my own style.
Since 2011 a lot has happened and DLA has grown to be a lot more for me than just a blog or an inspirational board. The blog has become a source of inspiration for not only to myself but for quality-conscious men around the world who are interested in menswear, style and being well-dressed.
My personal style is guided by three points: quality, fit and aesthetics. And I have always said that it’s essential to be able to dress oneself according the situation and environment. And to do that with simplicity, adaptability and personality. Those are the corner stones of DLA-style.
In summer 2015 I sat down together with 4 of my friends who all share the same passion. A few months after that, already in fall 2015 the process for first DLA-labeled garments to be produced was started. And in summer 2016 that process came concrete.
Dressing oneself need to be fun and inspiring, not something inflexible or something you are “forced to do”. You need to acknowledge certain rules and etiquette that are not meant to be broken, but, on the other hand, after you’ve learned to deal with the rules you can also learn how to break them in a right way. And that is what the upcoming DLA-garments and accessories are about. Simple and versatile but still chic. They are chosen by me to highlight the idea, that simplicity is in fact beautiful. And that versatility as well as adaptability are the keys to success. And the products represent the high Italian quality and craftsmanship.
DLA products are subtle yet refined. There are no striking brand tags or logos. I want you to love wearing them purely for the quality and feel they feature.
