I’m one of those guys who always go for the earthy tones such as brown and beige, but lately I started to admire a touch of colors in my outfit. In today’s post I wanted to play around with the mustard yellow color and found this beautiful jacket from the legendary jacket manufacture Valstar.
Military inspired clothing will always have a special place in my wardrobe and something that will never go out of style. As fall is already upon us here in Stockholm, I wanted to create this inspiration collage for how the wear the flight jacket. This type of jacket can either be combined with everything from jeans to more formal trousers. It’s versatile, and with a faux or real fur collar, it will also keep you warm during most of the fall season.
A walk in town or in the park, the choice is yours. A semi-casual outfit will be the perfect choice for the weekend walk. Go for a tie less look with the polo shirt, and put your shoe trees in your oxfords and bring fourth the loafers instead. Bring everything together with a earthy tone of on the jacket, scarf and a leather bag that matches the loafers.
Stockholm just passed the highest measured temperature record today and some may wonder what you are able to wear in this heat. You can either wear a suit or jacket in a high twisted wool for maximum breath ability, or as for today’s inspiration, a jacket made in seersucker cotton. This will not only keep your cool in this weather, but it will be a just about right in terms of casualness. Combine it with a pair of light colored trousers, loafers and some classic sunglasses for the perfect summer look.
The winter is finally coming to an end and the spring is showing itself in Stockholm. It’s time to hang in the heavy overcoat and bring forth the unlined jackets. One of my favorite combination for spring is the suede jacket and that is exactly today’s foundation is for today’s collage.
A new year means new opportunities, and of course new inspiration. Today I’m inspired of my favorite color scheme, the earth tones. Combining different colors from same color scheme creates a harmonic look and a perfect way to create an unique outfit. A tip are try throw in different types of clothes, both formal and casual.
2017 is slowly coming to an end and for the last post of the year, I would like to present a different look for New Year’s Eve. The tuxedo may be on of the most orginal outfits to wear as a gentleman on this evening, but few are comfortable with it. Instead of the tuxedo, I would like to make a stand for the three piece suit, combined with a crisp white shirt and a black grenadine tie. Do not forget to add a plain white pocket square and a pair of black wingtip brogues to make the outfit a bit less formal.
What I really like about winter is the heavy knitwear, and using different garments for layers to stay warm during the colder days. A personal favorite is the turtleneck in a soft merino wool or cashmere, combined with a pair of old school flannel trousers and a sport coat with a heavier fabric.
Winter is here and what is more classic than rocking a navy pea coat? With its origin from the British navy, it is built to withstand the cold wind during the winter. Complete the naval look by adding a turtleneck and for layering during the colder days.
During this fall, Brothers will head out on a tour in Sweden to increase men’s knowledge about fit and style. Brothers will be able to do this by offering a personal fit analysis and the possibility to bring your old garments to adjust them after your unique measurements. Every man should be able to find his perfect size, his so called “Size You“. And that is what the tour is about, to raise the question about the male body ideals and that everyone are unique.
All bodies are unique and the body of the Swedish man is no different. Some have muscular thighs, others have a round belly or the so called love handles. The variations of the male body are endless and the result of this is that most of men feel that they are unable to find their size in stores and online.
Earlier this spring, Brothers hosted a tour in Sweden to spread the word about their made to measure service, and also took the opportunity to collect data from a larger amount of men’s body measurements. Based on this information, the company have been able to create an avatar that represent the average Swedish man to show how he actually looks in real life and how it differs from the standardized size system.
Body ideals have gained more space in the public debate. We want to pay attention to the issue even from a male perspective. Our hope is to make people to feel more comfortable with their body and feel that their blazer, shirt or pants fit as they are supposed to. All bodies are unique, and Brothers wants to educate Swedish men during this upcoming tour and help them to find their “Size You“. – Magnus Hultin, Chief Designer at Brothers.
A lot of men feel insecure how a suit should fit and that is not something to be a shame of. Brothers will during this tour guide Swedish men to a more well-dressed look, customized after each and everyone’s unique style, size and body. Except the fit analysis that is offered during the tour, Brothers will also offers a selected amount of visitors to bring their own tailored garments, and to get it adjusted to their own”Size You“.
Usually only one small adjustment is needed, sometimes none at all is required and in some cases it is necessary to correct all the measurements. With the tour, Brothers wants to teach men more about their size and fit, but also offer the opportunity to customize and correct earlier purchases. In terms of sustainability, it is important to ensure that all clothes that are hanging in the wardrobes are actually used and that future purchases are perfectly fitted from the start, ” – Magnus Hultin, Chief Designer at Brothers
