This is going to be a really short post in terms of words as i want you to focus on this winter look i put together. Without me saying it, it is obvious that the statement piece in this look is the leather bomber jacket. I absolutely love this distinctive jacket by BOSS for so many reasons. The lambskin is soft to the touch, while the polyester lining makes it cosy and warm. The wide fur collar do not only provide added protection from the cold but makes this jacket stand out to complement the winter season.
This look is perfect for your typical Friday afternoon straight from the office heading for a weekend away. To dress things down a bit, you ditch the first half of your suit for the leather jacket, whilst Continue reading Play hard after work: The weekend getaway look
Choosing the right suit and using accessories around it shouldn’t be a rocket science when you know the basic rules of looking dapper. A business suit is by far the most important and most utilised suit for movers and shakers in the city. You only have to pop round to the squire mile or canary wharf in London during peak hours too see a sea of men donning business suits.

About a month ago, I did a collaboration with the Japanese car company Mazda on a piece that is part of a series called Sprezzatura.

Quite laterally, I cannot settle for a name for this article as my mind keeps pushing and pulling me back and forth on different ideas. Seventies look with a modern twist, a story of brown on navy, or simply settle for the re-emergence of the turtleneck? At best none of those titles even come close to telling the full story and at worst, well they just don’t make sense by themselves.
You know what, I’m just going to carry on describing the look and leave you all to come up with Continue reading Title is still work in progress: all suggestions welcome!
