Pics from a few weeks back when flannel and cashmere could still be worn here in Geneva. And when streets were littered with sofas. Caruso jacket, bespoke shirt, tie from Viola Milano, ps from Vanda, Berg & Berg pants and shoes from Tricker’s. Click on the headline for more pics.

The DB-suit was almost ruined after the ghastly 80s when so many ugly DB-models surfaced. Huge shoulders, low button stance, shiny fabrics. This wasn’t unique for DB-suits of course, but somehow it all became worse when the suit was a DB. Nor did it help that it seemed like every movie villain would have a DB-suit. Thankfully the DB-suit has made a comeback. It’s unlikely to be more than a niche model and, in my experience at least, its much more difficult to find RTW DB suits that fit well. The best option is bespoke and if that’s not possible
If I look slightly uncomfortable it’s because I am. La Bise (the northern wind) that hits Geneva sometimes during the winter months arrived with a vengeance yesterday and continues today. Really cuts through the bones. Realised afterwards that this became a very Cucinelli-esque fit with natural colours and few patterns. But I’m actually only wearing one small piece from Cucinelli. Jacket from Sartoria Partenepoea, William Lockie cardigan, Finamore shirt, tie from Vila Milano, Brunello Cucinelli ps, pants from Borrelli and chukkas from Paraboot.
