When your wardrobe has grown to a considerable size, comprising most essential menswear pieces, it’s time to start throwing some less conventional additions to the mix. Nonetheless, it’s curious to see how sometimes you start looking at those core essentials in different ways, experimenting and pairing what until then, didn’t resonate as obvious choices.
This was just the case with this outfit: although cargos have slowly been out of the equation in recent times, they most often prove a reliable alternative to denim, chinos or slacks, when you’re aiming to portray a different ensemble. This washed-out dark green version called for a brighter shade on top, perfectly filled by the beige piquet two-button blazer. The earthy color palette seamlessly blended with the wintery nature background, while accessories such as the floral printed scarf, plaid pocket square and vintage shades highlighted the overall look.

Rome: day 2 - A brother’s tribute
After greeting us with a sunny first day, the city suddenly became filled with a grayish tone and the cold and rain made an appearance. Time to throw on the only piece of outerwear I had packed, a camel wool peacoat I had been trying to snatch from my brother’s closet ever since he got it: thankfully a few weeks earlier we reached an agreement… When it comes to outerwear, few other pieces carry the undeniable classiness of a peak lapel double breasted camel peacoat. It was only after a couple of hours that I realized my attire was comprised of several items my brother handed over to me: peacoat, jeans and cotton shopper, so I guess in a way, this is a tribute to him. Love how the camel, denim and dark green shades on the bag, socks and recently purchased watch strap all come perfectly together…
Details: peak lapel double breasted camel wool peacoat by Our Legacy, jeans by Levi’s (511 slim - tailored), distressed brown penny loafers by Lottusse, aviators by Ray-Ban, paisley burgundy scarf by Zara, watch by Gucci (NATO strap by Smart Turnout), cotton shopper by Driftwood Collective and polka dot socks by Zara.
