20/2014 - Flannel Monday details

Seems that time for (grey) flannel is here again. Pretty often my weeks are scheduled so that most of meetings are placed in the beginning of the week, i.e most of Mondays I go with a full suit and yesterday made no exception. Suit featuring Vitale Barberis flannel is made-to-measure by Sauma (Private Label), soft collar button-up shirt by Mastai Ferretti and the cashmere tie & tiger-printed pocket square by Drake’s London. Black doudble-monks, which I got via A Fine Pair Of Shoes and which despite the color have become one my favorites are made by Alfred Sargent. Wallet from Chester Mox and shades by Balenciaga.

DLA - October inspiration

But having some seasonal additions is a good and easy way to make...

2014 - Late night Monday details

Started the week in the office with something between formal and casual, wearing my new made-to-measure suit from Sauma. Very satisfied with the result - a two-piece suit made of middle grey (semi) lightweight wool fabric with light blue and brown overcheck. Jacket of the suit is a single-breasted, features 2 patch pockets, 3-roll-2 buttoning and a little roped shoulders. More detailed review (and video) regarding the suit coming up. Wanted to keep the ensemble quite light colored, so picked a white merino wool turtle neck and pocket square (The unicorn square by Drake’s is still my favorite one) & shoes in shades of brown. Based on pictures it seems that my shoes could also use some welt edge dressing for...

Pitti Uomo 86 day II - Shades of brown and blue

While Pitti Uomo in Florence I had a chance to do three quick shoots featuring days 1, 2 and 3 with Neil Watson of A&H Magazine. Credit and hat tip to Neil, a dear friend and one of the most talented guys there is for perfectly capturing the details. Here is the set from day 2. Shades of brown and blue - Lardini blazer with Berwich trousers Brown and blue and their different tones are maybe the most easy colors to combine together. The light and dark brown shades of brown in shoes and tie are here brought together with different tones of blue featured in the shirt, jacket, bag, pocket square and again in the shoes as contrasting color....
