Tweed for the Springtime

Here's the vintage tweed jacket I promised:

Sorry for the picture's quality. I'm no photographer.

The jacket is pretty nice and the fabric is really heavy weight and robust Harris Tweed, so it's really warm. I could go out with this even though it still is rather cold out there. No need for an overcoat.

Coming up

I just bought a cool vintage tweed jacket, which will arrive some day next week. The jacket is sort of american ivy league style. Really neat. I'll post some pics of it for sure.

Also coming up: a review on traditional wet shaving products from the UK. I've been shaving with a single blade safety razor for over a year now, and I must say that it really changed my shaving experience. It's really the only proper way of shaving for me: no cuts, no razor burn and my sensitive skin stays in pretty good condition. The modern uber Gillettes can't do this, since they have too many blades for a sensitive skin. Only one blade is really enough, believe it or not.

This guy is a great tutor for any of you traditionalist wishing to start a new hobby: traditional wet shaving. He's mantic59 and he has a great bunch of reviews and how to -videos about wet shaving in his YouTube channel.

Shaving really is almost a necessesarity for most men - why wouldn't you make it a pleasure instead of a daily struggle?

Cool pants from Uncle Ralph

Polo Ralph Lauren
I really need some cool patterned pants because all I have now is only plain and boring monochromatic dress pants. I usually use jeans, but these patterned flat-front pants would be an ideal addition to my wardrobe. What do you say, are these Polo pants cool or not?

These would be great for summer.

Searching for the perfect shades

Hi all!

I've been looking for the perfect sunglasses for the last year and I think I've found the ultimate shades! Money  is the only obstacle now, I'll get new Persol 2720s's as soon as I can afford them.

Here's a picture of James Bond (Daniel Craig) wearing this classy glasses:

Hi guys and gals!

I finally decided to make a blog about me and my life. I'm a young (soon-to-be law) student and I'm interested in traditional menswear and dandyism. I will post here some clothes and accessories that I own or would like to own, and amongst that some other crazy stuff I just wanna share with you! I'm also very interested in music and am a guitarist and a french hornist myself. Wish me good luck with my new blog!
