There are many very talented shirt makers out there, making the search for the perfect shirt quite an adventure. What constitutes perfect is of course very much a matter of opinion, everything from fit, details, value for money and the ever so important collar are simply a matter of perspective…

The perfect navy suit
A mid/dark blue pure wool fabric with a discrete herringbone pattern, that lets the light dance over the cloth to create some depth in the colour. Wide notch lapels and a 3 roll 2 buttoning that gives a strong silhouette when combined with the overall slim cut. High armholes for mobility and a soft spalla camicia, that follows the lines of your shoulders perfectly, allowing a natural and comfortable look. A narrowly, but not tightly, cut trouser with a 5,5 cm cuff to add some weight. This helps create a smooth line along the leg. A higher rise on the trousers will also help to elongate your the overall silhouette .
Get those things right, and you’ll have a suit that will serve you well in almost every setting and on almost every occasion.
My perfect navy suit is from G.abo Napoli, available at Spiga 3 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Earlier this year I switched over to doing most of my writing with a fountain pen. Not for style related or “historical” reasons, but rather for comfort and feel.
I purchased a Lamy Al-star and got hooked immediately. Earlier this week, I decided to step my game up a bit and got myself this beauty from Japanese brand Otho.
I highly recommend all of you actually trying it out, I can guarantee you that you will enjoy the experience.
Both the Lamy Al-Star and the Otho pen were purchased at Rum för papper in Gothenburg, which I highly recommend for everything related to writing and stationery.
