Courtesy of all the love that’s floating around I decided to share my favorite left-over from the 5 BRANDS X FWST featuring Bohten the eye wear brand . This look got left out simply because it was less cohesive with the whole direction of the editorial, both concept and style wise, but it’s still my one of my favorites from the shoot.
About a month ago I picked up this beautiful TM Lewin three button navy suit during one of my thrifting rendezvous.Initially i wrote it off as a bad impulse buy until a liitle inspiration fairy flew my way. The three button cut on this little beauty gave a little room in the shoulder ,but I figured once it was my size it would probably work out if my tailor and the laundry guys had a go at it, I was so dead wrong.
We chose Bôhten eye Wear as part of our 5 Brands series for one particular reason; they are brand with a real story, an honest one carefully nursed with their passion for business and an undeniable desire to infect their surroundings with their contagious attention to quality and delivery.
Its throw back Thursday, so it’s only right that we visit one of the iconic photos that started this style craze of mine. I f you do not recognize the gentleman in the photo please be advised; the possibility of us getting through a chocolate éclair over brunch is slimmer than the side view of an anorexic model. Mr. Cary Grant has single handedly jump started a lot of style journeys of men through time, feel free to hold him responsible for making the gray suit synonymous with the word cool, I mean look at him, I bet he woke up like this. His outfit is so basic yet utterly flamboyant, draped in a gray pinstriped suit with a generous lapel size and a hint of earth via his pocket square, every style accolade thrown at this man befits him in every way.
I finally found another way to wear this beautiful two button single breasted jacket from Fiovarante. For weeks I have been I pairing them with the same pale blue shirt and navy pants until this magical injection of gray happened by accident. I am constantly in search of new ways to inject blues and browns in my wardrobe, and by far this here is my favorite. I love the light hues of blue and gray, juxtaposed against this beautiful brown rust jacket this ensemble has won my Wednesday spot ( yes I put together outfits by day and moods, feel free to try it, it makes putting together ensembles for work so easy)
Beige and green, one of my favorite color combos never gets boring and it easily gets the pick whenever i am in doubt of what to wear. When i buy clothes, i find it quite simple purchasing based on utility and color, it makes it so much easier to fit new buys into my wardrobe
