At last, finally the weather in London seems to be catching up with Spring! and although we're closing in on April I still am not able to accept the fact that I have to wear my winter jacket to work most days - but the hotly anticipated summer has sparked my imagination on the looks I can't wait to rock; Philip Lim's SS10 collection has hit the nail on the head for me personally, it's relaxed but still sophisticated and strikes the right balance between casual and smart.

The day look is so effortless and easy to put together, sweaters from Uniqlo are good quality and very affordable, and the tailored shorts from Topman are your wear with anything essential for this summer. I don't quite agree with wearing socks and shorts so I personally would go for the woven leather loafers, the woven detail is much more interesting and lets your feet breathe. I like how the evening look is still casual but the black will make it appropriate for night. River Island are now doing slouch wide neck t-shirts in a wide variety of shades that perfect to layer under a blazer or to go with a pair of pleated turn up trousers (Allsaints). I'm coming around to the idea of cut-out shoes, and I do appreciate that these will keep me cool, but if that's not for you a pair of simple black loafers will work just as well. To top it all off, add a long pendant necklace to make it a little more interesting than the day look - I remain optimistic about the warmer weather, fingers crossed ay...


  1. Love the new layout & Issue #9 of course!

  2. I love mens wear like no other. I love that your shining light on such a passover topic. Fabulously dressed men are hard to find and this is just perfection. Definitely a new favorite.
