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.

G.abo Napoli per Spiga 3
We are proud to introduce our new supplier of handmade jackets, suits and coats. Made to all the standards of neapolitan tailoring traditions, G.abo offers real luxury at a great price point. High armholes, the best italian fabrics and more hand sewn elements than you can count all contribute into making G.abo the brand of choice for everyone with a passion for craftsmanship.Available exclusively at Spiga 3 in Scandinavia. 

New supplier at work. I found this gem at Pitti Uomo (well, in a hotel in downtown Florence to be honest, they’re too small to actually have a display at the fair). I think G.abo represents the absolutely best value of any company I’ve seen, by far. If you are in Gothenburg, stop by at Spiga 3 to check them out. You won’t regret it, I promise!

Viola Milano just started adding some great looking cashmere scarves to their online store. If the quality of their ties is anything to go by, these scarves will be absolutely amazing. At 155€, they aren’t that expensive either!
