The purchase of a new pair of sneakers involves many feeling, much more than a simple mercantile relation between a man and the product standing in front of him, more than a manufacturing process, even though those Lanvin were perfectly made: ever hard-wearing Italian sole sewn to a subtle, soft suede upper, the whole handcrated… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Taking inspiration for the 50′s and the 70′s, Japan-made brand “Chimala” (meaning beauty in native american) has been making quality and well-tailored clothes since 2006. This is a quite outstanding trench coat; it has a sweet oldschool design and tone as if it came out right from some the 70′s British tv shows. Worn with… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
Made in the pure French tradition in the Bourgogne region Le Laboureur’s 100% wool jackets are so untouched and natural that they seem to grow directly from the soil. A piece of France to take away. Here is a something to check out for those who anticipate next Fall. The truth is that I’m impressed… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I’ve always liked APC mens clothes. It’s one of the few brands that shows best the mediterranean spirit in their collections.

In both cases, leather is intimately mingled with the road, rebellion, freedom and some kind of perfection. Pierre Balmain’s black leather jacket is the perfect-o example. For some reasons I have… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
As a French southerner I can’t stay insensitive to anything reminding me of the sea. Parisian brand Bleu de Paname has just uploaded on their facebook page three beachy T-shirts from their SS12 collection “Littoral” literally meaning coastal. Combining the spirit of workwear with the sailor style, these t-shirts are the translation of having a… Read more1 validationand1 comment for this article.
After working for luxury brands (Dior, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs) 30 year-old fashion designer Alexandre Matiussi decided 2 years ago to launch his own ready-to-wear brand “Ami”, a clothing concept for men who want to look dressed up but not too pompous.
