The shirt is one of the most important staple pieces in your wardrobe. Today there is more shirt models than ever available to choose from, whether it is a dressed or casual option. One of these is the shirt with the mandarin collar, a short unfolded collar that’s stands out from the other ones. The unfolded collar makes it very casual and makes it easy to wear to almost everything.
Beige is the color of summer and looks fantastic against a tanned skin. Beige can be worn with nearly every color but it has it favorites and will looks best with green, brown or blue. Here’s a take on how I would wear the the beige suit, with a little twist with the pocket square and the black details on the loafers.
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.
We continue with the inspiration from friends and people that I have met during my journey. Today’s Monday inspiration is inspired by my dear friend Herman Byström over at the Swedish fashion magazine Metro Mode. I will be honest with you, I don’t always appreciate what Herman wears and it can sometimes be a bit to fashionable, but he has a unique style and stays true to that which I admire that he does. Here’s one of my favorite outfits from what he has been wearing lately, casual and monochrome at its best.
For this weeks inspiration we will leave the colorful Pitti Uomo behind us and get back to my favorite color palette, combining it in a more casual way. It’s not more complicated than this, use a cotton suit and a pair of loafers to dress it down. The diver on your wrist will be the perfect companion for the summer, break the rules by wearing it with a suit, exercise or even take a swim with it.
Pitti ended last week and it’s without any doubt a place of inspiration. The true inspiration isn’t seen inside the fair from all the new collections, it comes from the visitors attending. A person who always captures my attention is my friend and executive editor of Manolo, Andreas Weinås. This inspiration is dedicated to one of Andreas outfits during the fair that was just brilliant in all thinkable ways (header credits to Style.com & Tommy Ton).

The time has come once again to visit the summer edition of Pitti Uomo in the beautiful city of Florence. It’s one of few times when friends from all over the world gets to together to talk about clothing, eat wonderful food and drink infinite glasses of red wine and Negroni’s in the sunset. Inspiration comes from earthy colors, especially colors like beige and brown which what this Monday inspiration will focus on (header credits to W Magazine).
Today’s inspiration is about the gentleman who’s taking a stroll in the city. The weather is nearly perfect with the sun shining against your sunglasses, having an Italian espresso and just enjoying life (credits to Eidos Napoli for header).
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.
