Since we are having a relatively mild winter in Gothenburg, I can at least dress like I lived in Rome…
Unconstructed cotton and silk blend jacket in a glencheck pattern - Boglioli
Light blue shirt with unfused spread collar - Morris Heritage
Light grey cotton crew neck - Mattabisch
Off white micro corduroy trousers - Oscar Jacobson
Distressed brown suede “gommino” hiking boots - Herring shoes
My new Alden cap toe derbys in Horween shell cordovan, a perfect beater for the Gothenburg climate.
Worn with selvedge denim from PT05, my favourite brand for jeans.
Doppiopetto by G. Abo Napoli
Few items are as iconic in the #menswear sphere as a camel coloured, double breasted coat. This one from G.abo Napoli is absolutely perfect for a younger guy like myself, with a soft construction, a herringbone pattern that takes the formality level down a notch, and a slim cut so I don’t get mistaken for a 60 year old banker.

Bestetti Bespoke Cap Toes with Three Piece Trees
Bespoke by my favourite shoemaker, Riccardo Bestetti. Mr Newton’s taste is just impeccable in every way.
New shoes from Paolo Scafora Napoli
I bought myself a new pair of shoes today, from Paolo Scafora Napoli, who makes some of the best shoes in the world. This really is italian shoemaking at its best.
The only other shoes I’ve tried that trump these, are my Bestettis.
Some of the world’s best shoes, by Paolo Scafora Napoli.
There are many makers of quality footwear in the world, and with the great development of social media in recent years, the global interest has never been higher.
While browsing tumblr, instagram, pinterest and whatnot, you stumble across loads and loads of beautiful shoes, but some make more of…
