My current shoe rotation, from the back left: Herring shoes - "Agnelli"-style gommino boots
RM Williams - Craftsman in chestnut yearling. Worn like hell and coping well. 
Santoni - Dark brown calf tassel loafers.
Meermin - Classic line suede double monkstraps, real beaters.
Santoni - Suede penny loafers. The first pair of quality shoes I ever purchased.
Adidas - LA Trainers in blue suede. Because Adidas > New Balance. 
Pari - Black cap toe oxfords in a chiseled last. 
Pari - Plain toe derbys. 
Pari - Double monkstraps. 
Meermin - Linea Maestro norwegian split toes. These beasts will take me a year to break in. Not pictured are my Clark’s Desert boots and a pair of white (well not anymore) Adidas Stan Smiths. Now I’m just awaiting the arrival of my Freccia Bestetti Maverick oxfords, the most beautiful shoe in the world.

Il piacere di vestirsi: Knits for the chill

ilpiaceredivestirsi:

The last week or so have definitely made it clear that summer has passed and that we have nothing but colder weather to come. Cold and windy as it may be, one can’t deny the pleasure of layering up with some wonderful knitwear and brave the elements on a crisp autumn morning.

As with most…

Today I’m wearing my windowpane jacket from Swedish brand Cavaliere’s top line CEO. By working extensively with creating a new slim, soft cut and using mainly fabrics from Loro Piana, Cavaliere has managed to create a great collection. My jacket is in a wonderful S150 Tasmanian wool from Loro Piana, making it as soft as you could ever wish for. It is definitely a great new option to the Sartorial Leasure line from Oscar Jacobson, or Morris Heritage. All in all, I’m very happy with my CEO jacket, and I’m very excited to see how far the Swedish brands have come in the last couple of years.

I imagine that it’s quite apparent that most of my sartorial dreams are aimed towards Italy, with ultra light jackets and neat loafers galore. However, the Swedish climate has it’s way of getting in the way of such ambitions. Cashmere coats and blake stitch loafers are great, but for the swedish countryside, rugged is the way to go.
