The FU jacket, a jacket so loud it’s obvious that the wearer couldn’t care less about what you think. Jacket from Hackett, shirt and tie from Charvet, Borrelli ps, pants from Berg & Berg, Allen Edmonds shoes and a Georg Jensen watch. Click on the headline for more pictures.

The Linen Tie

A linen tie is a great option during the summer months but you always have the problem that they tend to lose the shape a little, especially lightly lined or even unlined ties. But there are several tiemakers that offer silk/linen blends, like this tie from Charvet. It lets you have the best of both worlds: the summery texture of linen combined with the sheen and structure of silk.

Diplomatic Ties 355: Howard’s

Unlined tie in Panama cotton. Great summer tie. After so many years of flat front pants it’s nice to see that pleats have come back in fashion. I never really stopped wearing pleats but for a while it was almost impossible to find unless you went bespoke. Jacket from Caruso, Inglese shirt, Howard’s tie, Drake’s ps, pants from Oscar Jacobson and single monks from Edward Green.
