5x sport coats for summer ´15

It seems that we are finally getting summer here in Scandinavia as well and at the same time sale seasons are already knocking on the door. Mr. Porter for example already started summer sale on their American website and if everything goes as usual, Europe will follow in a couple of weeks.However, just because the weather keeps getting warm and sun starts shining more and more does not mean you shouldn't wear a jacket. It just means you should swap out your lined, all-weather, dark colored heavy wool and flannel suits and sport coats for something that's a bit more easy and lightweight. That means unlined, unstructured jackets with more casual details such as patch pockets and 3-roll-2 button closure....

Thursday inspiration - casully celebrating the 1st of May

A couple of days I wrote shortly about the 2015 look book by P.Johnson Tailors. As tomorrow is a national holiday here in Finland and many people are going to celebrate that - came up with an outfit that could suit that celebration - inspired by the looks of P.Johnson Tailors. A sand-colored cotton (/linen) suit is a summer staple and combined with driving mocs and merino wool polo shirt it's a perfect look for casual spring and summer celebration. As the weather might still however be a little bit unstable one might want to prepare by putting on a field jacket that will bring a little protection against possible wind and rain. Field jacket: Herno Suit: Boglioli Shirt &...

Boglioli fall and winter 2015

Starting the week by taking a look of the fall and winter 2015 collection by Italian Boglioli that was not shown at Pitti Uomo but presented the collection in Milan just recently. For the recent fall and winter Boglioli had studied and been inspired by the elegance of Milanese men of the 1960's - and it seems that the same theme has served as a platform of inspiration for this collection as well. Casual interpretation of a tailored overcoat and example of how to make a difference with textures. Monochromatic in brown - in case looking for a versatile suit this would be a good option as it can also easily be worn as separates. Classic grey flannel chalk-striped suit dressed down...

Boglioli fall and winter 2014

For this seasonal collection Italian Boglioli has studied and been inspired by the elegance of Milanese men of the 1960's - intellectuals and the entrepreneurs, who were valuable contributors of the Italian design and contemporary art. Milan has also served as a platform for shooting the look book.  The collection as a whole continues to draw the “blurry line” between more traditional suiting - featuring Boglioli’s soft-shouldered, unstructured shaping - and casual elegance, which is spiced with a substantial effort to offer more “avant-garde fare”, so called “Milan Bohemia” - Formal evening wear made of cashmere is combined with casual sweaters, tailored jackets in rich teal and vivid plaids are accented with pleated denim, button-up shirts are worn without ties...

Boglioli S/S ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 84

Playfullness, masculinity and fabric experimentation First of all I need to say that the photos do not do justice to the S/S ´14 collection by Boglioli that was built and presented in the middle of daisies, gardenias and peach blossoms in their very own house during the fair. The craftsmanship and experimentation especially with the different kinds of fabric treatments Boglioli is known for is something you should see and feel by yourself. Soft fabrics and peculiar shapes For the up coming spring and summer there are once again a bunch of new experiments all in terms of fabric treatments, colors and cut. One of them is the new cut and peculiar shape for the suit where the front part of the jacket...
