Office wardrobe basics - Suitsupply FW16

Summer vacations are over and most of you have already got back to work. For many that also means placing those casual summer combinations on hold and switching on more formal dress code for office hours. Suitsupply is often associated with those bold patterns, striking fabrics and diverse details choices. Today I take a look at Suitsupply FW16 collection. I pay attention especially to pieces that in my opinion are helpful and worth of note in case you are looking for to build your "office wardrobe basics". For this post I have picked a few pieces from Suitsupply's new fall and winter collection. In general the Suitsupply FW16 collections seems to be build up of various layers and different fabrics.

Cashmere sport coat - 5 options

Today taking a look of cashmere sport coats. Usually when talking about sport coats, in terms of materials the focus is on wool, cotton and linen or in the mix of these. And there are several reasons for this. But cashmere should not be dropped out of discussions. After all it is a king of cloths. Even though spring and summer collections are already hitting the stores the winter is still on. And even though it seems that we have got some warmer days here in Finland recently I bet there is still some colder weeks coming up. Therefore I decided to make a little update to the post from last winter. Cashmere – what is it all about? To put...

Blue double-breasted blazer for spring

One of the best features of double-breasted blazer is the versatility. I have a couple of blue double-breasted blazers in my rotation and I use them a lot. First of all they can be combined with dressed-up cotton slacks and a tie for more formal occasions. But they are also appropriate to wear even with just a roll neck sweater and sneakers. Last week I wrote about 5 white sneakers to check out for this spring and summer. On Sunday  I decided to pick up my old white Superga sneakers and take them out. And I combined them with some denim and blue double-breasted cotton sport coat. Double-breasted blazer - combined casually I bought the pictured double-breasted blazer - made by Suitsupply -...

Tuesday-inspiration - What to wear for a job interview

I was recently asked (by Mika, the writer of a blog Ohituskaistalla) about job interviews, what to wear for one, to be exact.  So for today's inspiration a collage featuring simple and plain outfit that I personally would see suitable to wear for a job interview. And of course this has been done bearing in mind the field - legal services - I work in. But it could also be suitable for consulting, finance or whatever where there is a need to dress up and wear a suit for work. A blue suit, white shirt, black shoes and navy (dotted) tie is a classic combination that I would dare to say fulfill (almost) any dress code there is in terms...
