5x white linen shirt

Sun starts to shine, one might get rid of socks while wearing sneakers or loafers and winter jackets are put on hold. As the spring and summer keeps coming it means people are starting to think lighter. Materials such as heavy flannels and tweeds start to feel a bit too muggy and everyone are looking something more lightweight and something more airy. Something like linen.Linen shirts - underused optionWhen it comes to summer and lighter fabric options linen is the choice that most of times is highlighted. However what usually is underlined are jackets (sport coats & blazers) and trousers.

Casual Easter - white with purple

Time to head back to work and office tomorrow. Before that a set from the past weekend featuring this time a bit more color than usual. Color in celebration of Easter - how to wear purple As said many times - wearing bright colors should not be an end in itself but of course sometimes there are occasions that it is alright to wear some a bit more bold. An Easter could be described as that kind of occasion. As we on Saturday headed for a coffee to the city I decided to test my new G.Abo Napoli sport coat and trousers by Rose&Born which I also got last week from alterations. After some contemplation I decided to combine them...

5 x denim shirt

After writing on Wednesday about denim shirts I got a couple of questions about where to get them. The question is quite accurate as the limited edition of denim fabrics for custom shirts by Proper Cloth mentioned in the post was sold out in less than 12 hours. So I decided to come up with a few ready-to-wear options to check out in case you are looking for a denim shirt to wear this spring and summer. The picture above - by Gothenburg-based Spiga3 - showcasing a Finamore denim shirt together with a sport coat by Boglioli and Entre Ami cream white colored cotton trousers is a great example of springish way to combine denim. In case you are looking for something more...

Casual Sunday in the city

Starting the week with a few shots from yesterday. Though the sun came out every now and then as we were walking around the city, the weather was extremely windy and in the end not really warm enough to go out with just a quilted Barbour jacket and a sweater. Casual and simple for Sunday This is pretty much what I like to wear for those casual days when there is no need to dress up in any way. Light colored denim with knitwear in colors of blue, brown or grey - this time the choice was grey lambswool by Uniqlo. These sweaters are actually a great deal considering the fact that they cost around 25 euros a piece. Sneakers...

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...
