What to wear for wedding party - short guide for summer weddings

Summer is the ultimate wedding season. And there is a couple of months season left. So it is good time to share a few thoughts about what to wear for wedding party. First thing to keep in mind is that there should be only one center of attention in the party and that's the wedding couple. As a wedding guest your job is to dress and act in a manner that shows you care, without upstaging the wedding party or, particularly, the bride.

How to find the perfect perfume - By Kilian in review

The right perfume is the finishing touch for every attire. And every man needs to find the right perfume for himself. That can be done only by trying out and finding the one that matches your taste. In this post I take a look at the latest addition to my own rotation by Kilian perfumes. In addition to clothes there are few things that are extremely important in terms of self-care and creating the overall (personal) look. One of these things is skincare and another is fragrances. Especially the latter is something I have always been very fond of. That said, I was very pleased that last year Helsinki got the first real "perfume gallery", a specialized shop for artisan fragrances -...

But keep in mind, the black grenadine tie is a piece you can wear in many other occasions as well. The black necktie -...

Outfit of the week - field jacket with a roll neck sweater and denim

Field jacket with roll neck sweater and denim is a classic combination. It is almost as classic and essential attire than the navy blue suit with a white shirt and gray tie.

Outfit of the week - Bottle green for the fall

Some people might say that it is boring. But the gray flannel slacks with a navy jacket is a classic combination. And it is a perfect attire for the fall season. Therefore the outfit of the week this time is an interpretation of that look. Combined with a bottle green grenadine tie and the DLA fighting capercaillies pocket square. I said it just in my previous post, I have always been more of a "suit person" than a guy who wears a lot of sport coats with odd trousers. This applies especially for work. And even though I tend to order most of my suits so that I could easily wear them as separates, most of time I wear them only as a...
