Light Brown Flannel

This one is from Friday. It was about -5° Celsius and I was wearing this and my pea coat.

On top an unstructured light brown flannel herringbone odd jacket from Paoloni, a blue white gingham check spread collar shirt from SuitSupply, a 7-fold chocolate brown herringbone cashmere tie and the trousers darkish blue from Incotex. Shoes dark brown suede chukka boots.

A better fit pic. The jacket is about the usual length I like to wear (about half-buttock or a bit longer) and fits pretty much perfectly at the moment. With time I think it will mold to fit even better.

Love how the jacket fits around the shoulders. A nice color too, perfect to be combined with different kind of hues of blue. Also, it is as soft as it looks.

The tie is a 7-fold cashmere Brioni I found on sale from New York earlier this year. The thickness is quite optimal and it ties a beautiful knot.

This must be my favorite picture I've ever had on my blog. The textures, the colors.. just love it. Deserves to be clicked and seen in a bigger size.

Last but not the least, suede chukka boots. I really like suede with flannel, the materials just compliment each other in the way that other materials don't. The softness on both of them also gives that nice cozy feeling that works well when it's cold outside. Also, this dark suede isn't very photogenic so apologies for the sh*tty colors in the picture.


  1. Absolutely splendid outfit, another one of the best! Must have been quite a head turner!


  2. Perfect! There's nothing else to be said :) The jacket is a nice A/W piece. Ebay?:)

    Keep posting like this;)

    1. Hey Mickey,

      I got it from Yoox' pre-Christma sale. There is actually quite a lot of Paoloni in all the Italian fashion outlets, might be worth checking them out. :)

      Anyway, thanks a lot, appreciate it. :)

  3. great outfit, superb color-play! pants fit looks a bit weird in the second pic, but that might be your stance.

    1. Hey Timo,

      Thanks mate! I like this one a lot as well. Also, I noticed the same odd crease in the second picture, probably the pocket folding in a bit strange manner due to my "pose".

      Nice to have your comments btw, and a big bumb from me to all my followers to check out Timo's tumblr. Always full of great stuff. :)

  4. I said your last look was your best but this one is equally great. Congratulations!

    There is something about unstructured herringbone jackets that i love. And the colour of this is perfect. I want one :) says that it fits small. Do you recomend ordering one size bigger than usual.


    1. Thank you Sir!

      It really does fit small, I would say like a normal US 36R or IT 46. I would actually say it's about the same torso tightness wise as a LBM 1911 IT 46, and even slimmer in the sleeves. Hopefully that helps. I would definitely go for a bigger than normal size in it.

      Also, the fabric isn't too thick so it's a great piece to be worn early in the fall or under a coat.
