Pierre Balmain leather jacket

le Monday 16 April 2012byAdel as "the fireman"

One of my siblings recently told me about how leather was represented in the Cinéma, from the late 60′s epic film Easy Rider to 80′s post-apocalyptic Mad Max.

For some reasons I have… Read more

All Saints dinner suit

le Friday 16 December 2011byRomano as "the garagerocker"

As I was saying, such a pair of loafers has to be worn properly. The best match you could find would be a tuxedo (AE) or dinner jacket (BE). The tuxedo is derived from the smoking jacket which cigar smokers used to wear in the 1850s. Later, it has been enhanced for Edward IV, Prince… Read more

Cashmere tie

le Wednesday 30 November 2011byTraz "the doc"

It is shame that people do not wear cashmere ties enough. Actually, it presents two assets: first it keeps your neck warm, which is nice when mi-season comes and you do not necessarily want to warp up with a bulky scarf. On the other hand, its fluffy texture allows some nice material mixings and interesting… Read more

Unconditional denim shorts

le Tuesday 10 May 2011byRomano as "the garagerocker"

I’ve just found those very particular denim shorts at Garment Quarter. They come from the brand Unconditional which is a British designer hafway between casual wear and luxury. Multiple zipped pockets are giving the piece a nasty look. Cut-off legs reinforce this impression. The only thing we could dislike is a too loud tag from… Read more

Super Technicolor Sunglasses

le Tuesday 05 April 2011byJoe the "tire-remover"

We’ve been following the Italian brand Super since their birth in 2007. They’re keeping the same line of action : proposing quality sunglasses (made in Italy, glasses from the Germans “Zeiss”) with quirky frames, and for a decent price (around €100). Among their new collection, I’ve spotted the ‘Technicolor’, which shape is inspired by some… Read more

Diesel Derby Shoes

le Monday 04 April 2011byRomano as "the garagerocker"

I just came across nice derbys from Diesel. Quite ideal for some casual outfits, their shape reminds of old school English brogues. Of course the shoes are featuring some brogue details, and contrasting stuff like metal eyelets and rivets giving them something charming. Full leather made, I’d gladly indulge myself for those all-round shoes. $230… Read more
