Pictures from last week when we still had snow in Geneva, it’s all gone now. Seems like spring is finally on it’s way now.

Suit and tie from Borrelli, Emma Willis shirt, ps from Cantini and shoes from Crockett & Jones. Click on the headline for more pics.

Found this classic Brooks Brothers jacket with the famous patch pockets with flaps. Been looking for a decent sample of this model for some time now. This turned up by ways of Ebay and I got it for an embarrasingly low price. From a time when BB had higher production values than they do now. Jacket from BB, Oscar Jacobson shirt, tie from Freemans Sporting Club, Vanda ps, Incotex pants, shoes from Tricker’s and Oliver Peoples shades. Click on the headline for more pics.
