Dutch Suitsupply recently launched their collection for the upcoming season and just this week the company published the look book showcasing the spring and summer selection. Some thoughts of mine regarding the collection and look book on the post I wrote @tyylit.fi There are some really nice pieces available in the collection - for today a combination that would be perfectly suitable for a Saturday night dinner - as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer.

Brown in town - office inspiration

Fully back in the office after Christmas holidays and traveling in Italy and the weather looks like there is still time for some decent outerwear as well as heavier fabrics such as wools and flannels.This weeks inspiration arises from classic colors - brown and blue - and pieces such as grey flannel trousers and double monk shoes that are combined with upper parts from the Eton x Eidos-collection presented last fall. Suitable for office - and by dropping the tie and square totally appropriate for casual wear as well.

A Fine Pair Of Shoes - The first official supporter of DressLikeA

A couple of months back I had a chat with Julian Nelson, the co-founder of  A Fine Pair of Shoes who runs the shop with his wife Sarah. I had a little experience of their business, I had read about their shop and I had talked with people who knew them and I’d got the picture that they are offering nothing less than some high quality products with extremely fine and well customer service. After chats and changing emails I’m happy to have AFPOS as the first official “supporter” of DressLikeA. To start this joint journey I will share with you some thoughts by Julian about the business, shoes and above all how to take care of them. 1) Tell a bit of your history, how did...
