The internet has been a blessing, a about a few years ago my idea of the holy grail of ties had a picture of an artisan sewing away on the finest silk there is somewhere in Naples. By way of the internet and some resourceful books comes the seven fold tie,
Slowly I am finding my step in the casual wear section. For years I have struggled to really settle in with my casual wardrobe, it’s been quite a hassle especially from the kind of the street wear background that i got sucked in at an early age. Lately i find comfort mixing the edge i inherited from street wear into my sartorial wardrobe, personally i think the balance defines me perfectly.
After the solids and the stripes you cant hide from the all over dotted tie. If you your wardrobe is filled with chalk or pinstriped suits the all over dotted ties are your go to. I love pairing mine with both my solid and striped suits but more with the stripes, I just keep my shirts in solid and I am good for the door.
Eyes are the organs of vision. As basic as that sounds i find the eyes to be open of the intriguing and complex part of the human body. In portrait photography it’s encouraged to focus on the eyes, simply because it usually forms the focal point if the image, an eye in an eye. Over the years I have pretty become very obsessed with the human eye, especially in captured images. The eye authenticates emotion displayed in images, for example, it’s easy to spot a manufactured smile from a real one from the subject’s eye. I find the eye more intriguing when the subject has a blank expression, it automatically becomes a blank canvas with which you can pair any thought or emotion for the subject. I will be featuring 50 photographs under the theme project named EYE, 20 of which will be available for sale upon request when the project is completed. Thank you.

When you live in the tropics, there are two things a man can’t turn down; a scoop of ice cream on a sunny day and a well tailored linen jacket.This linen blend jacket is beautiful, even though it’s missing a bit of it’s birthmark wrinkles,the way it drapes more than makes up for it. A suit has to have character, it’s said that it is necessary for the man to make the suit, but there is definitely nothing wrong with the suit setting the tone. This jacket has character, slipping into it almost feels like stepping into a movie role.
