We continue to get inspired by people that I have met during my journeys. During my second trip to the fashion fair Pitti Uomo in 2014, I met the mysterious menswear enthusiasm from Sweden who’s never shown his face on Instagram. Many people know him as Gusvs9, a travelling businessman with probably one of the sharpest outfits in menswear. He’s often seen wearing bespoke clothing from tailors such as Liverano & Liverano and Sartoria Corcos, and Saint Crispin’s for his feet. Can it get any better than this when it comes to rocking sport coats and suits? I think not.
The gun club check pattern is mainly known to be used during fall and winter in a heavier tweed fabric. The pattern is however excellent to be used during the whole year and here we have a perfect example of how a lightweight option looks like. It’s easy to match because of the various of colors that’s often present in the pattern and a true wardrobe classic.
The navy suit is without any doubt the most versatile piece of clothing that you can wear in the office, but sometimes there’s just moments when you want to dress down. We still have the shirt and tie but instead we’re replacing the oxfords with a pair of loafers and a more bold pocket square. This may not be accepted at the more formal meetings, but I think it’s a perfect example how you can dress down for the office without drawing too much attention.
