Meet my new best friend Trevor; yes I name my all jackets, even the bad ones. Before this beautiful piece of cloth came into my life I had my own doubts about linen, though I am mostly in the tropics the thought of a creased suit coupled with my ignorance about how the fabric draped, it’s safe to say all the linen talk missed me. Once again the universe has set itself up to prove me wrong, I love this jacket, on my first wear I realized the inevitable, I am going to wear this jacket till the lapels fall off. This is my first linen jacket so I am not going yap like I have read the linen bible, until I do this beautiful navy piece from john Lewis will have to hold the fort.
I just picked up on wearing braces, I am in love with the way they strap you in, it almost feels like wearing flight suit with less buckles but with elegance. I accidentally inherited this piece after a client I was styling for turned it down. Now thanks to this blessing in disguise I am thinking of going full throttle of amassing a few gems for my own personal collection.

Is that a three button jacket you got there? I absolutely love the reactions I get from my recent collection of three button suits. For years I thought the three button jacket was strictly for the old guys in the accounting department until I started paying close attention to this beautiful piece of a garment. This three button jacket from PAL ZILERI is my favorite out of my collection, it definitely lives up to its high end reputation.
Another blue tie? Yes another blue tie for 100th time. Majority of the ties I own are blue, I simply love the color in both solid and patterned, a refreshing break from the stiff black ties in the office. shirt by TM Lewin,Jacket by Pal Zileri,Tie by Andrew’s collection,Vintage pocket square,corduroy pants by st. john’s bay,Loafers by Johnston & Murphy

I have been on the lookout for an out-of-the-office friendly denim wash cotton sports jacket for a awhile but it seemed nobody went to bed with my needs until I stumbled on this offering from L.B.M. 1 911. Blue is my magic color, I have got a blue three button cotton jacket from zegna that mimics a denim jacket but I prefer mine with a deeper hue of blue that L.B.M. 1 911 two button sports jacket boasts. Internet has been going bonkers about the LBM 911 when it comes to fit, even though I am not too big on internet hype but with soft shoulders and completely unstructured form, this jacket looks tempting enough to take the risk .

The 2 x 2 double breasted suit, the official unsung hero in menswear tailoring. Without an argument the 6 x 2 double breasted jacket is menswear’s latest obsession and I humbly admit that I am part of that crowd, yet there is something about the subtle elegance of the 2 x 2 double breasted jacket that has got me thinking of jumping ship. The 2 x 2 double breasted jacket is less distracting in comparison to the 6 x 2 jacket in my opinion; the absence of distracting additional buttons that the 6 x2 is known for quietly taking the double breasted jacket from the boardroom to the associates lunch table without losing its formal presence. This take on the 2 x 2 double breasted jacket by Saville row bespoke is exquisite! i love the button stance and the way it defines the torso, the button selection clearly turns this perfect example of craftsmanship into a quiet tornado.
