Mr. Ignatius Joseph - "self-made man"

“Look, listen, learn” Almost four months ago, in the middle of the summer I was for the first time visiting Florence, first time visiting Pitti Uomo. During my visit I got the chance to meet one of the most personal and luminous person in the industry, Mr. Ignatius Joseph. It was really a pleasure to meet this fine gentleman whose style, charisma and friendliness are absolutely something to learn from. Mr. Joseph was kind enough to invite us (me and Anton) to see his newest collection and to discuss about it with a cup of coffee. Mr. Joseph who is originally from Sri Lanka, has lived most of his life in Europe and (when not traveling around the globe) is at...

Getting ready for the fall - new pair of shoes x 2.

As I mentioned about a month ago in my post about the top10 essentials for the fall, chukka boots are absolutely one of the most versatile pair of shoes there is.   When you wanna go casual, chukkas are perfect match for jeans or cargo pants. Then just complete the look with a sweater & a field jacket and you're more than ready to go. Secondly, if you need a pair to match with your flannel trousers and blazer (especially on a rainy day), suede chukka boots are still the right answer. And thirdly, even if you wanna take the golden mean, you can keep your chukka boots on, just change the blazer (or the sweater and field jacket) to...

Shaving & skincare by Gillette.

I’m one of the guys who can not really grow a beard. Or maybe I could but it would probably take like years so I have just learned to live without. Maybe some day in the future, who knows… That said, I usually enjoy my shaving routines to be fast, clean and simple but still something to enjoy every time. After trying and coming into conclusion that an old fashion safety razor was not the best option for me, I was pleased when a while ago I got a chance from Gillette to try out their new Gillette Golden Fusion ProGlide Power Razor and some of their finest shaving & skincare products.   The new razor is said to be Gillette’s most...
