Slouch Chinos























Forget about skinny, slim and tapered for a minute. On a warm sunny day you want something loose, something that leaves some room to move. A more formal equivalent of the sweat pant. The pleated slouch chino.

Pitti was cool


As always one of the highlights of the season is when I get to visit the Pitti Uomo in Firenze. So many cool people in one place.

Island Slipper - Leather Sandal



I'm a bit fed-up with Havaianas, so I have been looking around quite a while now to find a nice alternative. I had some requirements, which were that they would need to be: leather, provide comfort and support, wearable to the beach for a surf session. Birkenstock was a no go for me, although I have thought about their Boston model as frequently featured in Inventory Magazine. Anyway, we have a winner and it's the Island Slipper Leather Sandal.
