Rome: day 4
Despite the mixed opinions regarding cargo pants I have to say they won me over, especially if we’re talking about slim fitting alternatives. Cucinelli is king when it comes to cargos (and so many other things), but until I can afford to dish out +€450 for a pair of pants, this version by Uniqlo is the next best thing. Plus, when you’re traveling those extra pockets definitely come in handy. Some basic layering on top with an oxford button down, cardigan and timeless denim trucker adds texture, color and visual interest. However, the whole look is focused on the vintage white knit tie I got the day before at a flea market for €1; white is the last color I would ever consider purchasing a tie in, and I probably wouldn’t have if it weren’t for the price, but the truth is it actually works great with darker shades.
Details: denim trucker jacket by Levi’s, navy merino wool cardigan by Purificacion Garcia, dark green oxford button down shirt by Ralph Lauren, khaki slim fit cargos by Uniqlo, brown/navy suede boat shoes by Buttero, sunglasses by Ray-Ban, vintage wool knit tie, vintage braided leather belt, watch by Gucci, socks and scarf by H&M.

This is one of my favourite cold weather blazers. As I mentioned earlier tweed is here to stay, so you might as well make the most out of it. This vintage Harry’s Tweed was quite the find at London’s Portobello Market and after some tailoring by my friend Ayres it’s been on heavy rotation lately. Being so warm makes it perfect for layering with v-necks or cardigans such as this double breasted version. Striped oxford button down, club tie and some camel highlights on the accessories to add some visual appeal and you’re all set…

Although I have a thing against outlets, the truth remains that there are great deals to be had at a select few. This silk knit tie by Carolina Herrera was originally priced at 110€ and I got it for 10€: perfect feel, pattern and width.
