Getting the week started with some shots from Saturday. Had a great day going through some second-hand shops in Helsinki and after that enjoying some burgers at the best burger joint in town at the Market Hall.
As the day was luckily rainless, though a bit windy I ended up wearing my woolen overcoat in addition to sweater and a sport coat - all featuring different shades of blue. And so that it would not be too monochromatic a little splash of color in the form of scarf with restraint beige and bold orange in the gloves.
Herringbone in the overcoat, checks on the sport coat.
Some say you should never wear your overcoat unbuttoned. So I buttoned it.
Some details and different angles.
Blue on blue on blue - a color suitable for all season and almost all occasions.
Pocket square by my friend Christian Kimber.
No outfit post is complete without a “look down”.
Coat and gloves both bought from Rose&Born - seen in their F/W ´13 collection.
Chukka boots by Alfred Sargent, made of hatch grain. The leather which is an interpretation of the famous Russian Reindeer Calf features a nice surface and texture that also seems to age well. I wanted these with leather soles although some might think that it’s not best choice for these kind of boots especially considering the weather in Finland during fall and winter. Probably will change the soles to dainite when the time and need for that comes.
Still my favorite bag. Big enough to have your camera, scarf and all necessary things for a walk in the city with you but still small and light enough to carry around easily.
