Bedwin AW13 “Now’s The Time” Lookbook
This was a drawing my best friend did a couple of years back…still on the list to get it inked:

WIW Firenze Day 3
Although I packed light, knowing in advance the temperatures are unforgiving in Firenze, I couldn’t resist throwing a suit in the mix. After screening through my wardrobe, the obvious choice became this unstructured cotton/linen version by Boglioli, which has been in heavy rotation as of lately. However, the focus here is the bespoke shirt, a model of my own creation: inspired by a japanese aesthetic, I aimed to introduce added versatility to a piece which is otherwise static. The unique placket is fastened using silk knots which can be changed according to your mood or to match a particular element of your attire. The extra length allows for interesting layering, while the tunic-like nature is complemented by side pockets and mao collar.
Details: cotton/linen 2 piece suit by Boglioli, bespoke silk knot shirt, suede espadrilles by n.d.c., wayfarers by Ray-Ban, pocket square by Add-On and watch by Daniel Wellington.
