Back to the office - Monday details

In the morning it was time to head back to office after three weeks of vacation. Ended up making it easy and playing safe by going with my favorite suit from Caruso together with some subtle shades of blue for shirt and tie. It was nice to be on vacation but it’s also good to be back at work. Suit: Caruso Shirt: Isaia Napoli (mtm) TIe: Berg&Berg Shoes: Crockett&Jones PS: Eton of Sweden

Isaia Napoli S/S´15 @ Pitti Uomo 86

To get the week properly started and go on with the Pitti reviews it’s time for some Isaia goodies. SS15 - Coral bandana collection Inspired by and dedicated to the Amalfi Coast and its rich and varied heritage. That’s what the spring and summer 2015 collection of Isaia is about. Color schemes for the season are taken directly from this UNESCO World Heritage site that boasts some of the world's most beautiful panoramas. Once again Isaia presents personal and unique designs & impeccable craftsmanship. The collection is as usual colorful and heavily patterned as one would expect of Isaia. In terms of colors there are blue, pink, some grey and yellowish that dominate the selection together with a bunch of turquoise and...

Isaia made-to-measure chambray

As the guys from Isaia were last time visiting Helsinki and Fere I got a chance to make an order for my other mtm-shirt by them. Regarding the process in general, check the post I wrote earlier from here. This time I decided to go for something a bit more “summerish” and ended up with a chambray-fabric featuring quite a wide spread collar and naturally “neapolitan” shoulders. The cloth itself is very lightweight, suitable to be worn in the office with a suit and a tie but works as well when worn with just a pair of cotton slacks or shorts. Once again the shirt is nothing short of perfect with its hand made buttonholes, buttons that are hand sewn with...

Visit @ Isaia Showroom - New York

During my trip in New York last month I got the chance to drop by and pay a visit at Isaia’s showroom on the 5th Avenue. A while ago I wrote about the collection as it was seen at Pitti Uomo for the first time, so I’m not gonna go there that much again but you can find my review and more pics from here. Although whereas the presentation at Pitti concentrated highly on the sportswear and casual selection, it was great to see the whole ensemble featuring also the more business- ja formal-oriented side of the line at the showroom. Here’s few outtakes in terms of what will be seen during next fall and winter. Bold patterns (as usual), mixture of...

040414 - Uniformish Friday

Last day of the week with a couple meetings to go through. No need for a full suit so ended up going with a pretty much “uniform look” in flannel featuring what else but simple colors mainly in tones of blue and grey. Wool blazer by Mabro and checked blue mtm-shirt by Isaia. Trousers made of lighweight dark grey flannel (Finealta) and lighter grey cashmere tie from Viola Milano. Pocket square by Schoffa and shoes (which definitely needed to be sweeped after taking the shot) made by Crockett&Jones for Paul Smith.
