Here's a couple of the pictures that were taken for the old blog banner shoot:
Slim heather grey cotton suit - Le Chateau
Navy cotton knitted pocket square - ThriftedFor the banner, I wanted a look that not only reflected the colours and feel of the logo, but was both timeless and innovative.

This summer I was privileged enough to experience Italy for the first time. As I walked the streets of Milano and Firenze, I always kept a look out for the dapper men of the city. I was especially inspired by the way Italian businessmen paired there suits with their footwear. Most of the suits I saw were linen or cotton blends because of the summer heat. When it came to footwear, however, the Italians opted for a deck loafer (such as the one I am wearing below) over a traditional oxford or wingtip. Also, most of these men, no matter the time of day or occasion, chose to go sockless. This is something you seldom see in North America; I know I personally had never thought to try a sockless suit look myself. But seeing all those well-dressed Italian men inspired me to try it out.
Navy deck loafers - (store in Milano)
For this shoot I chose a slim heather grey cotton suit, a blue and white pinstriped dress shirt, a navy and white silk polka dotted tie, a sliver tie clip, a blue cotton knitted pocket square, and, of course, navy deck loafers
I hope you like the new changes to the site! Street style pictures coming soon!
