Gentleman Get-Together

I bet they're talking about swiss watches, cuban cigars and of course, women...

Very chic gentlemen that's for sure.

A Navy DB

A double-breasted blazer/club jacket is a sartorial classic; usually worn with chinos or grey trousers, but nowadays you can easily hook it up with a pair of red or white pants, worn out jeans or even shorts.

DB's usually look the best on guys in their 50's or 60's, but if you're a young guy that can easily pull off blazers and suits, then I recommend going for a DB.

One Sleek Guy

He's name is Fredrik and he lives in Stockholm, that's all I know about him, but he is one sleek guy that's for sure.

 I just love his style (very similar to mine, but more details) and it's funny to see somebody wear a lot of the same stuff that I wear.

Suit Yourself

A spring suit is a cool cat's essential.

I think the coolest spring suits are navy colored ones; it can be dressed up (silk tie, leather shoes) or down (sneakers, lose the tie or wear a knitted one), the jacket and the pants can also be worn separately.

Go For Layers!

Whether you throw a casual jacket over a blazer or a trenchcoat over your suit, this spring it's all about layering and the mix of fabrics and textures it brings to your look.

Mr. Lino Ieluzzi

I think Lino Ieluzzi, the owner of Milanese Al Bazar, is somebody we can all learn from; just take a look at the perfect proportions, little style quirks (gloves in breast pocket, scarf in the side pocket etc.) and the sprezzatura!

If you like the classic Italian style, this is what you should aim for.

One thing to remember when going for the sailor-look, true sailors wear no other colors than blue, white and red.

Oh, and make sure your jacket is (almost)waterproof and everybody sees your watch. ;)
