13/2015 - Shades of gray

This time the start for week is quite formal - wearing a double-breasted dark-grey herringbone suit by Rose&Born together with a white shirt from A.W Bauer, light grey cashmere tie by Viola Milano and finally black calf leather double-monks by Alfred Sargent. The only thing not so formal is the double-breasted Gran Sasso down vest. As the sun was shining in the morning and it seemed that the would be warm I thought there was a chance to go without an overcoat. As you can see here - with shades of gray (featuring a bit of blue, white and black) one can not go wrong. This is one of the presumptions and thesis I will continue with on the write-up...

Gran Sasso - not only knitwear

I have written earlier about Italian Gran Sasso - mostly known for their high-quality knitwear. The company makes all kind of knitwear under their own label but they also produce garments for multiple well-known brands that are then sold under their private label lines. In addition to knitwear Gran Sasso also makes a full selection of light weight and unstructured sport coats, blazers and gilets - even though these are not as often in the spotlight. Gran Sasso double-breasted gilet This time taking a look of Gran Sasso double-breasted herringbone cotton gilet I got from Vaatturiliike Sauma after getting back from Pitti Uomo and that I was wearing as we visited in Jyväskylä during the weekend. I had actually had...

Cold day inspiration for a casual weekend

Getting ready for a casual weekend - inspired by Bastong, a Korean brand specialized in hight quality outerwear. Bastong is also one of the brands I once again most look forward to see next week at Pitti. Unfortunately their products are not really easily available in Europe, but check for their own web store for more. The parka jacket is combined with a roll neck made by Gran Sasso, another personal favorite and some blue toned denim. Cashmere beanie and a classc Acne Studios "Canada" scarf to keep one warm. In terms of colors this is one more safe played combination that you can't really go wrong with. The difference is made through those little things and quality details such as...

Quality knitwear from Italy - Gran Sasso

Italian Gran Sasso is one of my personal favorite knitwear makers on the market. Company's garments are made - in Italy - from finest materials to combine tradition with innovation and ancient craftsmanship with modern production processes. As said by themselves "quality is always fashionable". A detail worth of notice is that even you may not have any pieces labeled as “Gran Sasso” it does not mean you could not own one made by them as the company produces garments for multiple more and less known quality-brands and also for many shops for their “private label”-collections. Gran Sasso fall and winter 2014 The selection of Gran Sasso includes not just “basic” knitwear but also (double-sided) vests, suede featured & down lined...
