Music has always been extremely important to me. Therefore hundreds of band t-shirts have passed through my life.

Vintage, new, originals, replicas, cheap, expensive. All kinds really. Click on the headline for more pics.

If you wear a jacket in a bold and/or light pattern, the Italians realised that you should combine that with solid colour shirt and tie.

Jacket from Zegna, Attolini shirt, tie from Poszetka, Richard James ps. pants from Incotex and Sanders shoes. Scent: Hiram Green Slowdive.

Election Day Fit

Elections for the Eurpoean Parliament today. Important day for Europe. When I first started voting many years ago I was struck by the fact that some people dressed-up. Especially older people and people who were immigrants or came from immigrant families.
