Brown vintage A-1 leather jacket - Casual Saturday

I'm not really that fond of leather jackets. Or to be exact, I do like leather jackets and there are some really good looking ones on the market but usually I find it hard to pull them off so that they would look good on me. However I have two "vintage" leather jackets on my closet that I really like. Both I have thrifted several years ago and both I use basically one or two times per year.

They work nicely with plain navy or gray suits as well as they do with more relaxed sport coats or blazers. Small pattern printed silk ties are perfect business ties. If you happen to like them, there are a few things that are good to keep in mind. Chestnut brown / cognac colored cap-toe adelaide oxfords by Alfred Sargent. I've had these shoes for almost 4 years but they are still looking like almost new. Sum-up - printed silk tie goes...

Weekend casual - burgers and champagne

It's been a busy week - so on Friday we decided to head over to the countryside for some relaxation. And as I know the posting frequency has been rather low during the summer - due some work and other projects - I want to give you a little heads up as there are some big and good things coming up with DLA. What's coming up is stuff that I am personally quite excited about, stuff that will take this game into a whole new level. So stay tuned. But before that a few shots from yesterday - including casual weekend gear, homemade burgers, champagne and views from the sea coast... And that little fellow - on his own seat......
