Last week I wrote shortly about the mtm-days going on at Sauma (see it here) and as mentioned took also a glimpse of their range for this season.
In addition to Montecore, Tombolini, Cavaliere, Gran Sasso, Berwich, John Smedley and others, for this season they also got Italian Tagliatore as a new brand to the selection.
Generally speaking I’d say that in terms of both the whole selection and individual pieces, Sauma has really come up with a nice assortment for this season, maybe even the best I’ve seen in the store so far, even though they were still last week waiting for some outerwear additions by Tombolini and Tagliatore as well as some knitwear from Gran Sasso.
Subtle mini houndstooth check and soft shoulders by Tagliatore - pretty much perfect for winter business wear.
Cavaliere CEO-line sport coat with a crisp seasonal fabric & pattern
Tagliatore wool-cashmere double-breasted blazer featuring patch pockets. Combine with light colored denim and a roll neck sweater as done in here.
Seasonal colors, patterns and fabrics for more casual occasions - checks by Tombolini and brown corduroy by Tagliatore.
personal favorite pieces - chunky roll neck by Gran Sasso and herringbone button-up shirt by Mastai Ferretti. Perfect to wear during casual fall weekends.
Berwich trousers with pretty bold checks - pair with for example with the double-breasted blazer seen above.
Wool-mix pocket squares to pair with tweed, heavier blazers or even with your overcoat / gilet.
For this season there’s basically four new models available; brown calf-leather double monk (simpson last), snuff suede chukka boot (rain), black suede wholecut and finally a sand suede derby boot featuring solid dainite rubber soles.
Finally I wanna a give a shout out to Olli and Tuomo, who in the summer made it to the listing of “top 100 menswear shops in the world” by Plaza Uomo. Even though one might claim that these kind of listings are always subjective, getting into the list together with Al-Bazar, Trunk Clothiers and The Armoury for example shows that these guys are doing a great job. It’s fair to say that the #menswear scene and culture of “men’s quality dressing” is still in it’s infancy here in Finland (at least when compared to many other places, Stockholm just to mention for example) but just looking the brands and range Sauma is offering they are at least giving men here the possibility to take a step into the right direction.
