Bespoke Denim

Not necessarily as God intended it to be…
A low flat front cut with square tasca carrettiera pockets, casual horn buttons with hand-punched holes and finishing in beige silk.

Summer brings thirst

As the overall climatic situation improves all over Europe, the warm weather brings us a lot of thirst.
Some have thirst and they fight it with a Martini, others stick to Limoncello or Granita and others just make ties from it.
Always made by hand, always with vintage looks and always with compliments (dedicated to the fighting Dutchman and Red or Dead Moscow infiltrator).

I found a few images of some casual Rubinacci numbers, mostly linnen or cotton and silk blends.

We deserve this so much!

The Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists’ Award which my great friend, the immensely talented pianist Igor Levit received during the RPS Gala at the Dorchester’s Ballroom in London.
Oh, and another random Cognac Cocktail; that was obviously me (still deserved after being a good boy this term at uni/not even trying to stir my drinks with that Lyra).

A slightly hung-over, post-Gala Igor wearing casual Finamore MTM, contemplating The Telegraph’s most recent article about his work.
To keep the sartorial theme:
Beethoven’s pedal markings which Igor mentions in the interview sometimes cause him to scratch his shoes big-time while performing – but that does not prevent him from wearing handmade footwear.

Dartless

A detail shot of the  overcoat’s dartless front,  the functional “integrated” semi turn-ups on the sleeves  and Carpincho gloves (and emerald green thick silk lining). And of course, mummy’s ex- silk georgette dress.
Again, thanks to Robert Spangle of TYS for the images.
