07/06/2015 - Casual Summer Sunday

Today a short sneak peek into an outfit appropriate for a casual city stroll. For sunny and warm (yet a bit windy) Sunday I decided to go for a semi-casual combination featuring some linen, suede and lightweight denim. And my new Balmuir Panama hat. Linen in different forms A while ago I wrote about linen shirts and as mentioned there in terms of summer and lighter fabrics choices linen is for many the ultimate choice. Today I decided to go for linen myself as well - in two different forms. First of all I took my blue linen safari jacket out of the closet for the first time this summer.

040414 - Uniformish Friday

Shoe rotation - What is enough?

How many pairs of shoes does a man need?Yesterday as I got the newest addition, a pair of Buttero tanino sneakers into my collection - I once again started to think the question how many pairs of shoes does a man need… The pair mentioned took the overall amount to be around 45 pairs - give or take one or two as some pairs are missing from the pictures which I shot last night. So in general I could probably say that I have my basics covered.
