Por Vocação AW12 Looks III
Autumn seems to have arrived in full strength, providing us the perfect opportunity to start playing around with layers and transition garments. While the temperature allows, you can get away with layering shirts with cardigans and lightweight jackets or, making use of another staple: the puffed vest. As I’ve mentioned before, this Peavest by Tonello instantly became one of my all time favourites, not only because of its uniqueness as it combines elements from puffed vests and the classic peacoat, but also due to its versatility: it can be worn over a shirt, sweaters or even sportcoats and suits. Here I paired with a white dress shirt and played around with shades of green (blackwatch scarf and argyle socks) and brown (suede holdall and double monkstraps). Lately, I’ve been having a hard time avoiding hints of dark green in my attires and there are few other shades that complement brown and blue as nicely.

Having tailoring master Claudio Tonello as a founder, the eponymous Italian label offers a wide range of sartorial garments with unique vision and attention to detail…
This is one of my all time outerwear favourites: the Pea Vest. Reminiscent of the iconic peacoat with the double breasted closure and wide lapel, and throwing in the mix a puffed vest model it’s been one of the most heavily rotated pieces on my wardrobe as of lately. A perfect match for the houndstooth elbow patches on the cardigan.
