Azzuraa bag review

IMG_3682_MEcrop

Azzuraa bag review I was contacted some time ago by a relatively new brand called Azzuraa – which means blue or sky blue. Azzuraa is a brand producing bespoke leather goods for men and women as well as bespoke leather shoes. They make small goods like wallets or belts to briefcases, women bags and overnight bags or holdalls. The company is based in India therefore is able to offer completely customisable and bespoke products in a reasonable price. Azzuraa offered to make a bag of my choice in return for a review. …

Pinstripe double breasted suit

IMG_3214_MEcrop

Pinstripe double breasted suit is definitely a statement. It is a classic piece, something that should be put into every mens bespoke/mtm top 5 list. In my opinion top 5 suit should be made in charcoal or navy flannel or wool. Having said that, the suit I want to present you today is neither in navy nor charcoal flannel. It is a lighter version of this classic pinstripe double breasted suit. Sometime ago Suitsupply opened their online outlet and I was lucky enough to get two suits. One of which …

Ancient madder ties

IMG_3227_ME-crop

Ancient madder ties There are two words describing this type of tie that need clarification: ancient and madder. “Madder” is commonly used name for a plant called Rubia tinctorum whose roots were used as a natural dye for the royals. It has been in use since ancient times hence the former word. In the 19th century the colouring agent called alizarin replaced the natural dye – it was actually the first chemically extracted dye. Synthesised alizarin is being used today in dyeing silks for ties, mainly. It produces very muted, matte finish …

Quilted vest with wool

IMG_2768_ME-659x1024-crop

Quilted vest with wool jumper This is finally the time! My favourite weekend look involves soft wool jumper and quilted vest on top of this (have a look at my gilet/vest guide here). Such a comfortable and practical outfit. I truly love the vest and recommend everyone getting a similar. Not only it protects you from wind, which still is quite cold, but also gives you 4 additional pockets. Apart the gilet I am also wearing a very soft and warm wool jumper made in UK by Peregrine – English heritage …

Original Penguin Original Penguin is a brand that specialize in vintage clothing. Their clothes represent great style for the gym or a maybe a casual weekend.
