Recently, I finally got a chance to enjoy some much deserved week long vacations…As expected, deciding on what garments to take along proved to be a challenge. The eclectic selection I put together aimed to serve several purposes: adapt to the beachy feel of my hometown, allow for more polished looks and last but not least, shoot a couple of outfit posts (coming soon).

On personal style and individuality
As Europeans take a deep breath from fashion weeks and such, the steady flow of photos depicting exquisite figurines in an assortment of attires and situations continues to flood the Internet. Although one can easily gaze at these inspiring pics for hours, absorbing each tiny and intricate detail, a certain critical thinking and self assurance, in a way, is advised. It’s one thing to draw...
Summer Sales roundup #1
Although we’re experiencing a time of transition, when stores are beginning to stock up on Autumn/Winter collections, it feels nice to bear in mind that Summer is yet to reach its peak and that most stores are currently offering exceptional bargains on SS items. While browsing through the countless pieces on sale, it seemed appropriate to share some of my favourites… Starting with Mr....
LINKS À LA MODE: WEEKLY ROUNDUP 06/30
My post on carrying around keys made it to this week’s Links à La Mode from the Independent Fashion Bloggers website. Be sure to check it out, along with all the other selected articles! Hey blogger. Get over yourself. Seriously. Edited by Vahni of Grit & Glamour This week I’m fresh out of love and rainbows, so there will be no kumbaya intro. Doesn’t mean I don’t...
The Melt Project
As I got older, one of the things I’ve gradually come to appreciate is my home. As the ultimate getaway and refuge from the fast pacing everyday life, its purpose is to make one feel utterly comfortable and relaxed. It’s important to set the distinction between house and home: as I see it, what turns the first into the latter, is your personal touch, your own individual stamp making it...
The right key
Finding a proper stylish way to carry around keys, rather than simply stashing them in the pocket of their slim denim, is a struggle for many men. A basic keychain is no longer enough for those to whom perfection is found on the small details. One of the accessories that made it onto the spotlight of recent streetstyle pictures are metal chains, in an assortment of shapes and sizes. Although it...
My friends (and brother) over at Driftwood Collective are a creative bunch brought together by their mutual love for surf and all things related. In their own words: “a group of friends, craftsmen and artists that don’t take themselves too seriously and who, however lost in life they may be, are always easily found floating ashore. Surfers of dubious skill, who have decided to make...
Boglioli spread collar shirts
When you hear the name “Boglioli” you immediately come up with an image in your mind of exquisitely tailored unstructured sports jackets: indeed, that’s their trademark. However, this often overlooked Italian label cannot, by any means, be summed up by jackets alone. I’ve been following their collections for quite some time now, and truth be told, the amazing craftsmanship,...
Woolrich Woolen Mills SS12
McNairy’s vision for W.W. Mills takes on the rugged, task oriented lines of previous designer Daiki Suzuki and mixes them with his own unique aesthetic, resulting in an inspiring, smart rendezvous between preppy and functional. The SS12 collection presented in Milan had its share of hunting/safari inspired items, while maintaining an updated vibe through the use of fabrics such as chambray...
Summer essentials: faded in the sun
With the streak of highly praised fashion events happening this month (Pitti, Milan and Paris), one may easily delve into all the media reports and find himself stranded in the universe of next year’s SS12 creations. Although I’m always eager to catch a glimpse of future collections from my favourite designers and spot upcoming trends, I like to stay focused on the current moment and...
Outstanding selection of brands mistercrew: The guys from FrenchTrotters recently published a great video of their trip to Pitti – it’s worth a watch if you’ve been following coverage and is probably the best piece of visual media I’ve seen from this season’s show.
