any ideas for reasonably priced unstructured patch pocket sportcoats? Thinking $350 or under.
My best advice is to shop at sales, perhaps you can snag a Lubiam or Boglioli sportcoat if you’re lucky. Other than that I’d recommend Massimo Dutti, Boggi or Suit Supply, perhaps you’ll find something at Yoox.com as well.
Hi man, must say I just love your blog! Btw, do you have any experience with Suitsupply? If so, can you recommend them? Thx
Thanks a lot, man!
I have no experience with Suitsupply, I’ve heard mixed opinions about them really. However, their pricing is very reasonable so I doubt that you can get anything better at that price point.
You always get what you pay for, there are generally no shortcuts, therefore you sure as hell cannot compare them to e.g. Caruso but I believe that they are price worthy for sure.
Hi there man! Tell us please what have you doing in Istanbul at this season? :)
To be honest I just strolled around the streets of Istanbul, it’s a beautiful city and there’s a lot to see. Of course I’ve checked out the major sites as well. In addition to that, lots of bazaars, mosques and shitloads of cheap and delcious kebab.
I haven’t shopped at all basically, in terms of menswar I wouldn’t say that Istanbul offers a lot. I heard that there are quite many skilled tailors though, but nothing I can vouch for. I think that you can find some nice stuff, but you have to know where to look.
But to summarize the trip I’d say that I just enjoyed the atmosphere and the culture. I can definitely recommend it!
Hey, the blog is killer by the way. I just wondered what your opinion was of Piombo suiting in comparison to Boglioli?
From what I know Piombo(MP di Massimo Piombo) is produced by Kiton so I’d say that Boglioli is quite far behind. But it’s a matter of what you like, Boglioli is all about washed unconstructed jackets while Piombo is a bit more fashion oriented(but the quality is definitely higher, the level of craftsmanship you get from Kiton produced clothing is amazing).
Marry me? Please?
Are you rich? In that case I’ll seriously consider it!
Hi, can you please share with me where did you got the Montecore hybrid jacket? I have been looking for it online but found nothing.
Bought it at Massaboutique.com a couple of months back, however I don’t think it’s available anymore. Anyway, that’s where I bought it so you could try to contact them.
You're such a handsome gentleman who has an impeccable taste in fashion! Absolutely adore you and your blog. x
That’s very kind of you to say, I hope you’ll keep reading and let me know if there’s anything I can improve.
What is your jacket size and body length?
I usually wear size 46, sometimes 48 depending on the brand. I’m about 188cm tall.
I think your blog is very insightful (been a reader for close to a year) - but don't you think you have become a bit too cliche in the sense that you now post more "cool guy" pictures of yourself smoking? The actual act of smoking is not the problem - it just seem you just falling into the standard-sprezzy-menswear circle jerk... you never used to post pictures like that before, you used to be more original.
Glad to hear that you like the blog! You’re probably right about the whole cliche thing, in a couple of months you’ll probably see pictures of me walking across a street, or perhaps eating a gelato in Italy. Or even worse, pretending to have an important conversation with a group of well dressed guys.
I probably need to think of something unique, just thought of the Captain Morgan pose but that’s already taken, fuck..
