From my perspective, you're the well dressed guy around here. Your big point - great physics. That with your sense of style is a bomb. Keep it up.
Thank you very much, mate!
I don’t know if I can fully agree with you but I’m glad that you think that I’m that well dressed. Hopefully I can keep it up, I’ll stay away from the gelato this summer(perhaps I’ll have a few at Pitti Uomo though).
Knowing from your blog that you often wear the sunglasses with yellow frame with dark green lenses. I also always see those real solid well-dressers like Santo Barillà, Alessandro Squarzi, Dennis Frison wore this style of sunglasses consistently. What style is it? Which brand do you recommend to buy one? Thanks.
Mine are from Epos Milano(the model is called Polluce), but there are several other options out there. I’ve seen similar styles from Bob Sdrunk, Moscot and Cutler & Gross to name a few.

Worth to read.
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).
