Pictures that are a couple of years old. Taken in Sundbyberg, just oustide of Stockholm. Evening comes quickly that time of year. Coat from Paul Smith, scarf from Drake’s, suit from Aquascutum, Paul Smith shirt, Charvet tie, Eton PS and Red Wing boots. Click on the headline for more pictures.
Completely unstructured jacket from Belvest in a thick but soft tweed fabric. Fits almost like a cardigan. I need to shorten the arms a little bit though. Worn with a wool tie from Cappelli, Barba shirt, ps from Cucinelli and pants from Berg & Berg. Click on the headline for more pictures.
Even if I have been interested in clothes and fashion for a long time, my fascination for fabrics is more recent. I guess that if you are into menswear it is just a matter of time before you realise the huge importance of fabrics. The quality is naturally essential, but also matching fabrics, using them for the right kind of garments, caring for them and of course the beauty of the fabric in itself. This wool herringbone from the small Italian manufacturer Drapers in Bologna is perfect for a coat. It is warm but not very heavy so
Brown for a rainy day in Geneva. Back from spending a week in Nairobi and disappointed that winter has not arrived yet, instead we are stuck in wet late autumn weather. Tie from Cappelli, jacket from Caruso, G. Inglese shirt, pants from Oscar Jacobson and Alden shoes. Ditched a ps this time, it just became too much. Click on the headline for more pictures.

Close-up of the Edward Green “Hove” single monk, full brogue model.
I am not a big fan of monk shoes, especially not double monks, but Edward Green makes two beautiful single monks: Mercer and Hove. These are Hove in dark oak. Worn with a Caruso 140s suit, Zegna Couture shirt, Gieves & Hawkes tie and a ps from Finamore (in a pattern based on traditional Nordic folk patterns). Click on the headline for more pictures.
Sunny autumn day, but colder than it looks. Perfect weather for a chalkstripe flannel suit from Zegna, worn with a G. Inglese shirt, Brioni tie, ps from Vanda and sunglasses from Moscot. Click on the headline for more pictures.
