Office casual - seasonal sport coats and flannel trousers

Last weekend I went through my rotation of suits and sport coats, put those more lightweight and summer colored pieces back to storage and took some seasonal pieces made of flannel and heavier wool fabrics back to the rack. Among those seasonal fall and winter jackets was also the pictured sport coat by Italian G.Abo. Made of semi lightweight wool fabric with a blue and brown overcheck, minimal construction, no lining and featuring two patch pockets, soft shoulder structure and 3-roll-2 buttoning it is a pretty much a perfect sport coat for fall season. In my book the jacket is especially appropriate to be used for those semi-formal office days when you don't need to be fully dressed up but...

Sunday inspiration - casual traveling

One thing I've learned during my trips is that always try travel as casual and comfy as possible. For me that nowadays means jeans and t-shirt, maybe a casual cotton blazer or a jacket and some simple sneakers. Referring to yesterdays post about "what shops to check for sales" I went through the selection of the shops mentioned and picked a collage that would make a preferable traveling outfit - or an outfit for any other casual occasion - featuring pieces on sale at the moment.

Camouflage field jacket and superga sneakers - Casual Saturday

Starting the week again with an outfit from the weekend, this time something a bit more casual - Field jacket together with a chunky roll neck and cotton slacks. Beams Plus garment dyed M-65 jacket The field jacket worn is an impulse purchase I copped from Florence during the last Pitti Uomo. A little bit funny is that the jacket (made by Japanese Beams+) is sized as “large”, though it fits me (as seen) perfectly on the shoulders and by no means is not too large at any point. At first I was thinking about taking it in a bit but as the straps on the waist and on the hem can be tightened there’s no need for that at this...
