One of the things that better translates the coming of a new season, along with the right choice of fabrics, is a suitable color palette. On this aspect, I’ve been wanting to update my wardrobe, namely in what regards its core essentials (suits, slacks and blazers), to reflect a wider range of shades. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of 1ST PAT-RN, but I’ve got to say that in this SS14 collection they’ve outdone themselves.
The color palette is superb, namely the greyish blue on this Admiral Jacket, a perfect alternative for sunnier days which works brilliantly with white, camel or khaki. As usual, the unstructured jacket features the brand’s trademark twill jacquard and inner seams in raw jersey, but this time around the fit has been slightly adjusted to portray a more tailored silhouette. Here I paired it with a somewhat unusual tone on tone combo, white oxford shirt and denim, setting a clean canvas for the jacket, shoes and accessories to stand out. The black British inspired loafers worn sockless, keep up the sophisticated yet relaxed nature of the whole look.
Details: admiral 2 button jacket by 1ST PAT-RN, white oxford button down by Ralph Lauren, white denim by Massimo Dutti, black leather loafers by Bexley, vintage cashmere tie, black leather belt by Wrong Weather and printed pocket square by Èpice.
