CLOSE UP AND PRIVATE




The Guys at "Close Up and Private" wrote a nice compilation of things a modern gentleman should wear or do :

Slim cut suits with short legged trousers go a long way.
-
Buy a pair of wingtips and loafers.
-
The Beatles sir, listen to them – and do so regularly.
-
Owning at least 3 oxford shirts has never done a man any harm.
-
Be a gentleman towards women.
-
Own several ties – n.b. Four-in-hand knots only – mix things up with a bow tie.
-
Watch all movies by Andrei Tarkovsky. Re-watch them.
-
Always consider a well-fitting navy blazer with gold buttons.
-
Serge Gainsbourg looked smart in a trench coat and so do you.
-
Own a classic cashmere v-neck and a round-neck pull-over.
-
Kaki chino trousers are as essential as they are basic.
Choose your pair meticulously.
-
Cherish a good relationship with your parents.
-
Sometimes looking at a nice black and white picture of your grandfather
as a young man wearing his Sunday-suit can learn you more about classic style
than reading 20 fashion magazines.
-
A watch – you do own one do you? - should be flat, vintage, and have a leather band.
-
Be punctual.
-
Ray Ban sunglasses matter.
-
Stay current.
-
Trust the classics.

CAMO




Here's another brand I wanted to check for a long time and that was showing at the Pitti : Camo.

The brand was created in 2007 by Stefano Ughetti.

The brand takes inspiration in the rural Italy and goes back to the time when farmers were wearing the nicest garments they could have to go to the church on Sunday.

All the fabrics they use for the production are made in Italy and all the garments are produced in Italy !

We hope to carry a selection of Camo for next winter.

One of the most interesting italian brand of the moment !

HAVERSACK









I just came back from the Pitti Fair in Firenze and one of the brand that really catch my eyes was Haversack.

It's know seasons that I'm following this Japanese brand and each season the result gets better.

To collection is a mix of past influences with new ideas.
That gives as a result of a beautiful timeless collection.
