Wearing a doppiopetto jacket from G.abo. High armholes, a soft spalla camicia, Carlo Barbera fabric, barchetta breast pocket and lots of absolutely wonderful handwork makes G.abo my definitive choice when it comes to jackets. They are absolutely amazing!

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!

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.

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.
