Spring Kit Nº5 – Orange

Orange is a colour that typically references hunting clothing and gear, to make sure you’re seen in the wild. It’s an appealing colour to me even though it’s presence is scarce in my closet. That being said, I compiled this kit around the bright orange camp shirt and this unsurprisingly perfect horizontal striped tie from The Hill-Side. Of course, the base of this kit is in the navy blazer and navy explorer pants, as wearing multiple shades of navy never hurt anyone. This new Standard Issue Civilian Blazer from Apolis most definitely has my name on it, paired with their persimmon pocket square. Let’s not forget about these handsome and oiled leather longwings from Alden x Leffot, which just so happen to round off this kit while adding the perfect texture.

Monocle x Sunspel Briefs

Sunspel has been in operation since 1860 and were first known as a major textile producer in England before they began crafting underwear and casual basics from high quality fabrics and textiles. They recently collaborated with Monocle Magazine to create two versions of briefs made from an extremely soft and comfortable Egyptian Cotton in French Stripes. In all honesty, who doesn’t want to invest in quality made undergarments? “We have spent a century perfecting our underwear. These briefs are made from soft knitted cotton for support. We use exceptional quality Egyptian cotton, made by twisting together two threads for extra smoothness and strength.” Care: Machine wash at 40 degrees Dry flat Do not tumble dry Wash like colours together

Top 3 Pick Designer’s Men Shoes

Shoes are my addiction. That makes me a shoe addict. A shoe-addict’s life is dominated by the constant hunt for the perfect shoe. It’s not always about the pleasure of buying: sometimes it’s just good to know that something special is out there, available, and you can visit from time to time to say “hi”. It’s like the only thing I find more stress-relieving than smoking or good wine is stroking my favourite shoes. I would like to share my top three (3) pick of shoes that I consider perfect.   1. This shoe has a hybrid concept. It was made on a technical nylon and this is perfect for windbreaker jackets or some other type of outerwear. 2. Evolving classic lines with comfort. That’s what I best described this new designer men’s shoes. 3. And last, my favourite pair of shoes. I love this because it’s my safe pick shoe. I wear this if I am not sure if I should dress for the business meeting, or dress for the party. These shoes are perfect for any …
