Gray double-breasted suit - versatile choice for fall part I

Gray wool suit is staple for fall and winter season. When the days start to get colder it feels natural to change jackets and suits made of lighter fabrics to more subtle wool and flannels and hues of blue to darker shades of gray and brown (and of course blue again). I bought the suit featured here - made of Dugdale Bros & co gray herringbone wool fabric - from Rose&Born couple seasons ago and it has since been one of my favorites. It is suitable for work as seen here but it also works for more casual combinations together with roll necks, double monks and loafers. Last weeks have been pretty busy so just a few shots from yesterday....

The season for white sneakers is almost over (at least here in Finland) so wear them while you still can but do not forget that those colder days and...

Checked sport coat and details

Checks and details I bought the jacket in pictures a couple of years go from Milan. As mentioned, it hasn't got as much wear as many of my other jackets which might partly be because of the shoulder structure which is a bit more padded that most of my other jackets. Another...
