Navy and Red Accessories

Today was a good day. I managed to snatch a pair of Stubbs & Wootton velvet slippers for next summer, for almost no cost at all, from Mr Porter's 80% sale. Not sure how they still had my size (tends to be sold out and rarely on sale), but no matter, 400 EUR slippers for a bit over a hundred. A two year hunt for a nice pair has ended.

These shots are from last weekend. I was wearing a navy unstructured wool cotton blend jacket from SuitSupply, a striped button-down shirt with extra long collar points also from SuitSupply, cardinal red Berg & Berg wool tie, red and natural white Berg & Berg wool flannel pocket square, Equus Leather Oak Brown belt, olive Incotex chinos, red Berg & Berg wool socks and split toe derbies from Loding. In addition, I had a peacoat and brown leather gloves.

I got some messages asking me to wear this tie for some live action shots and here it is. Ties a nice knot and works perfectly with navy.

Lastly, the flannel pocket square. The super soft-looking fabric adds a nice touch to this outfit, and just looking at it makes you feel a tiny bit warmer despite all the snow and ice.


  1. That tie/pocket square combo is just great

  2. Great combination again!

  3. The pocket square is just perfect, excellent!

    1. I got inspired and ordered a few pocket squares. Couldn't find any as nice as yours though.. They will appear on my blog shortly.

    2. Great, let me know and I will check them out.
