Brasserie Kämp - Sunday Burgers

Finally it seems that summer is here. Last weekend was sunny and warm, so it was perfect for strolling around and enjoying the city. On Sunday we decided to head to Brasserie Kämp and see if they really serve one of the best burgers in town - as is often claimed. You can find the full review @tyylit.fi but here are a few pictures of what I was wearing for the day and what we got to eat. Shorts and blazer - casual summer wear I have earlier written shortly about shorts for summer and how to wear them. On Sunday I decided to wear shorts with a button-up shirt and blazer - a combination which in general divides opinions. However as...

Day 2 @ Lake Como

The second day of our vacation we spent touring around the town of Bellagio.  For the day I wore my new cotton/linen slacks from Finealta, Isaia chambray-shirt and suede loafers by Christian Kimber.

For dinner put on the Tombolini striped blazer and brown silk knitted tie by Sauma. Pink camouflage pocket square from P.Johnson Tailors.

Back to the office in light colored flannel

After week and a half Christmas holidays it was time to get back at the office yesterday. As the weather has again gone cold as hell I opted for some flannel and layering. Shades of brown & Tombolini light colored flannel The suit is camel colored, unstructured and very light weight flannel suit by Italian Tombolini. Despite the light color it is a perfect choice for cold Finnish winter. I decided to pair it with dark brown cashmere cardigan from Uniqlo to stay warm in the cold. I chose a dark brown grenadine tie by Berg&Berg and light blue button-up shirt. The shirt is in fact a mtm-piece by Proper Cloth. Finally the shades of  brown and the blue are...
