Despite a rather paingiving day in the office (nothing went the way it was intended to), i am in a very good mood this evening. Why, you ask? Well, first of all, i received two parcels, one containing a lovely jacket, which was never worn and tailor made-to-measure using outstanding italian fabrics. I bought it via ebay (the price being reduced by 81,4%, from 370 € to 69€) and although i didn´t stand model for it, it perfectly fits...the other parcel came from Woolovers, a very recommendable shop for high-quality knitwear...a grey lambswool-cashmir blend cardigan.
If that were not enough, i even got more cheered up by an email i received from Joe, founder and writer of one of my favourite blogs, WHAT KATIE WORE. The guys got a section called "What you wore" where they feature other outfits, and guess what, i had the balls to suggest myself to be put up there....and they really think about that...what greater blessing could come upon me?
Well, i could surely name one: a place to live in DüDo. It seems as if people are freaked out by a guy who likes to wear ties and jackets along with jeans...i really doubt i can find a roof to shelter me from rain and the cold until the beginning of april....but hope springs eternal...
Anyway, i promised to show you guys my new jacket and the recently thrifted pair of trousers...here you go: i am wearing them with a light blue white striped shirt with french cuffs, a blue paisley tie and a dark blue cotton pocket square with an embroidered logo on it. Finishing this one of, i chose to wear my Grenson Derby with self-applied red and dark-blue antigue finishing.
