Diplomatic Ties 380: House of Kydos
Received this unlined, 7-fold jacquard tie and a silk pocket square with a traditional motif from the island of Skyros from the Greek tiemaker House of Kydos (http://kydos.gr/). First time I wear them but very promising so far. I especially like the very soft handle of the tie without it being shapeless. Coat from Hentsch Man, jacket from Gieves & Hawkes Royal Collection, bespoke shirt, tie and ps from House of Kydos, Berg & Berg pants, Zegna scarf and shoes from Edward Green.

Diplomatic Ties 379: Rubinacci
An attempt at “controlled clashing”. Pink and burgundy are of course difficult colours to match, but not necessarily impossible. Here the clash is calmed down a bit with a charcoal chalkstripe suit. Zegna suit, Rayner & Sturges shirt, tie from Rubinacci, Vanda ps and shoes from Carmina. Click on the headline for more pics.
Diplomatic Ties 378: Sam Hober
This is probably as conservative that I ever get. Suit from Fallan & Harvey, Charvet shirt, Sam Hober tie, ps from Poszetka, Crockett & Jones shoes and watch from Tusenö. Click on the headline for more pics.
Time for winter hats
Since my wife isn’t in town my son took a few pictures. I think he managed pretty well. Still snowy in Geneva. Too cold actually to be outside without a coat. DB suit from Fallan & Harvey, shirt and ps from Drake’s, Shibumi tie, Bugatti hat and shoes from Alden. Click on the headline for more pics.
Suit and shirt from Zegna Napoli Couture, Borrelli tie, Canali ps, shoes from Crockett & Jones, Oliver Peoples sunglasses and vintage cufflinks with ravens. Click on the headline for more pics.
