15/2014 - Office monday

One weekend again behind and new week ahead. Started the flannel season on Friday (as can be seen here) and continuing it today by wearing my favorite Mabro blazer (made of Vitale Barberis flannel) for the first time this fall.  Otherwise going with pretty toned down shades - light denim shirt together with burgundy grenadine tie from Viola Milano and darker grey flannel trousers to keep the balance on the bottom half.

Last day of the week with a couple meetings to go through. No need for a full suit so ended up going with a pretty much “uniform look” in flannel featuring what else but simple colors mainly in tones of blue and grey. Wool blazer by Mabro and checked blue mtm-shirt by Isaia. Trousers made of lighweight dark grey flannel (Finealta) and lighter grey cashmere tie from Viola Milano. Pocket square by Schoffa and shoes (which definitely needed to be sweeped after taking the shot) made by Crockett&Jones for Paul Smith.
