Buttero - spring and summer 2015 @ Pitti Uomo 86

There’s only a week before heading again to Florence for Pitti Uomo 87.

So next week will be about those few collections for the upcoming season as well as getting ready to travel. Starting with Buttero - Italian shoe maker that nowadays is best know for their high-quality sneakers. Even though the brand may not be that well-known outside the #menswear and sneaker-aficianados, Buttero already celebrated it’s 40th anniversary with the collection that was seen at Pitti last summer.

When it comes to ties one can pretty easily go with basic rotation of silk ties (including knit ties, grenadines and shantung for example) through the year. But having some seasonal additions is a good and easy way to make...

Something else for Saturday - Tough Viking x #tyylit

About a month ago together with a few friends we got this idea of taking part for a happening called Tough Viking - now being organized for the first time in Helsinki. Although I wasn’t’ suppose to be in the team in the first place as I got the weekend already scheduled for other things but in the end it seems that in a couple of hours I will be participating for this run after all.  12km run and 15 obstacles including ice water, mud, fire, monkey bars, american football players and electricity…  To read more - check the part I, II and III
