Olive green linen trousers

IMG_4054_MEcrop

Olive green linen trousers The olive green linen pair is one of the last 2 I ordered from Luxire – online mtm service. The cut and style of the trousers is exactly the same as some of my previous pairs – identical to grey wool flannel ones. I am finally 100% happy with the fit that I marked it as ‘complete’ and I do not make any more adjustments. If I need another pair of trousers in this cut I only choose a fabric and refer to this order number. Must …

Grey double breasted suit: office

grey double breasted suit

Grey double breasted suit: office In the previous post I presented a wedding look featuring this grey double breasted suit. This time I would like to show you a way of wearing the exact same suit in the office environment. If you are required to wear a suit to work then this post is for you. Apparently the grey double breasted suit is very versatile. Rather lightweight and elegant 130’s wool fabric suggest less every day use. Plain delicate fabric is more suitable for special occasions. However thanks to few …

Grey double breasted suit: wedding

Grey double breasted suit: wedding In todays post I am going to focus more on the style. The grey double breasted suit has been my first ever bespoke I purchased and I ordered it at Graham Browne, bespoke tailors in City of London. I have already mentioned it in one of the earlier posts. One of the first things that tailor asks you about the suit is how are you going to wear it, what is the occasion, how often you are going to wear it or in what weather. …

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 …
