The traditional Summer season is coming to a close, and although the days will still be warm for a few weeks longer, we start looking ahead towards colder months. But before the return to our regular nine-to-fives, we want to take some time to look back on what we enjoyed most from this past summer. Here’s a "summery" of some of our favorite outfits and items from this season.
Whether calfskin or nubuck (suede), the loafer became the most indispensable shoe during these warmer months. Commonly perceived as more casual shoe, the loafer works well with a variety of outfits as we’ve demonstrated before. Warm days expect you ditch long socks and allow those ankles to breath (we’re not saying you go sockless - we recommend you wear no-show socks).
We were proud to introduce popovers this year in our product offering. They straddle the line between luxury and casual. You’ll find that we wear ours most often under a blazer or sport coat. A structured collar helps the popover sit nicely under any jacket. Even so, they can be worn without a jacket and paired with cotton trousers or denim jeans and a pair of sneakers. They are incredibly comfortable, especially when made with Loro Piana’s Jersey collection. Most importantly, we offer them as part of our made-to-measure program so that they can be made to your specifications.

As we all know, office dress codes and suit appropriate occasions aren't suspended for cold weather. For all of us who experience the cold season every year, there are only 2 options to solve the "I have to dress up, but I want to be warm" conundrum; Either you wear a regular coat over your suit, or you get a topcoat. We recommend the latter. Buying a topcoat isn't as straight forward as buying a suit for most guys. So, lets review the basic questions that need to be considered before buying your first topcoat.
