MORNING BLUES

IMG_0597 Picking out a suit, shirt and a tie is like figuring out sitting positions for a wedding; you don’t put uncle chatter box with auntie chatterbox, that’s just a recipe for destruction. The trick is to find the right mix of contrast, and trust me it doesn’t come easy, there are no coded steps to achieving the ability of keeping it simple without a sweat but a few pointers definitely make it a tad bit smoother . Personally, I copied looks off the internet till I found my own stride, mistakes led to discoveries and then, soon after, my mentors were giving me the thumbs up (that is what 30 likes on style forum mean).

The trick with navy ties is that they always come in a different hue of blue, and if you happen to be one who cares about matching your blue right down to the hue then you understand my obsession with these beauties. Personally I hate pairing navy ties and navy suits with different hues, in my opinion it mars the cohesion of the ensemble, so I try as much as possible to pick up ties that work well with the blues in my wardrobe.

IMG_8393
 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.
