A Summary of My 2013

Normally, we try our texts and the inspiration we give you here at our site to be neutral and not too personal in taste and style. To some extent it will naturally subjective, because we choose what is published. Today, however, the idea that in a little more personal way to look back at the fashion year 2013. I will reflect on the things that caught my attention a little extra, and in a personal way to reason how their style has been influenced during the year.

With this retrospective, I would also like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year! See you next year and will then get a flying start with a lot of interesting material for the Pitti Uomo in January.

Best wishes Olof Bernhardsson

Beard

Do not know if you can say that the beard is an accessory really. 2013 continued to be the year when it felt like every single brand used the bearded models. If there is a backlash on the groomade and perfect picture that was shown a few years earlier or if it is a sign that fashion is about to change left unsaid. Personally was 2013 years when his beard was grown for the first time, and it feels like it’s here to stay.

Cordovan shoes and coarser

A bit on the same theme with the beard above, I want to summarize skoåret 2013 as the year when my the neater and more chiseled lasts were replaced with double leather sole, rounded toes and cordovan. These shoes is both practical and stylish a little narrower and shorter pants, which for its part, has become a natural part of the closet. (LeatherSoleHawaii.com)

Cap

Another accessory that for the first time has found a place in the closet is the knitted cap. Ideally, it should be soft and comfortable cashmere. For the first time in many years, the vanity of the hairstyle is not quite right to give way to the practical and comfortable hat. If you live as well as signed on windy west coast of Sweden will be a limit to the battle against the west wind will be decided once and for all. 2013 was therefore the year as a cap, finally, came back. (Berg & Berg)

Flannel pants

Actually, I would not say that flannel pants came into my closet in earnest in 2013, but it really has been a favorite really long time. It is very nice with an odd jacket and then gives a semi-formal look. Together with a button-down shirt, cable knit sweater and a pair of boots, they nerklädda and informal. The reason I still take them in my summary of 2013 is that it was during this year that I seriously caught the eye of Fox Bros. from England. This company is said to have been there that actually invented flannel wool and today after many slum riga years made a new initiative. Their classic and warm flannel in 370g-quality and medium gray is and remains the ultimate fabric for autumn pants.

 

The plaid jacket

Blazers in all its forms will probably always be a favorite in my closet. 2013 was the year when I managed to combine the two things that inspire me the most fashion terms, the Italian craftsmanship and dainty shoulders with the British rustic look and feel. In a quick review was purchased way too many jackets in this year sewn in Italy but external pockets and soft shoulders stuck in coarser wool fabrics from Fox or lighter tweed fabrics. For more inspiration, you love to see Luciano Barbera clothing. He is perhaps the best of all on providing Stile Inglese. (Spiga3.se)

 

Split toes

Not long ago, I promised myself to never wear split toes because I simply thought they were right ugly. 2013 was the year I got to eat up all the criticism I previously gave this shoe. Gradually there has emerged a kind of love-hate relationship that has come into acceptance, and the last time a close friendship. The trigger may have been the factory visits that I made our site on behalf of Edward Green in Northampton. After seeing the craft as it meant handsy their model Dover, I was saved. At Dover is perhaps the ultimate shoe when it comes to Split toes. If you want a budget alternative offers Spanish Meermin a very nice model in their cutting-edge line Linea Maestro. (Leffot.com)

 

Jeans

This is more than halfway through my summary of how I feel rage in 2013, and the personal style this year, I can say that my taste has become more casual. There are more similar garments, and slightly thicker materials and fabrics that are imposed upon the attention. Therefore it is not surprising that the jeans after 10 years of absence had a natural place in the closet this year. Can not really say why they had been in hibernation so long but it does not feel comfortable wearing them. Nowadays, the dark blue pants in raw denim and slightly higher waist a cornerstone of the closet again. The favorites come from the French APC and Acne. Fotvidden get most often is taken in by means of an amendment tailor to the overall impression will be the right one.

Watches

A bit like a couple of the other things above, is it not a novelty accessory in 2013. Instead, this year has been a year when interest flourished. New pieces have been purchased and the old has gone out. Too much time has been spent on the Internet forums where people with too much time spent thousands of hours to discuss the old faded dials the Rolex 70’s divers. Spontaneous track I watch the trend will continue on a broad front and in this area, it is especially significant that the common man is now looking for quality and sustainability. (Hqmilton.com)

The vacant tie

I will readily admit that I am very fond of ties. This interest is probably due to me wearing a tie every day in my work and have done so for 8 years. A quick inventory of the tie drawer, I can easily see a certain trend in the recent purchases. More and more the ties are in a more relaxed performance as crocheted, of grenadine, raw silk, cashmere or wool. Several so-called untipped and with hand-rolled finish. My guess is that the tie trend will continue and when the offer and acceptance for a little looser ties increases will probably more to wear a tie. These are a little looser ties also tend to have a slightly narrower width of 7-8 cm in contrast to the most classic of 9 cm, which also makes the suit more the better. For inspiration, I urge you to look closely at Drakes London or micro manufacturers who Vantaa Fine Clothing, Passaggio Cravatte or Berg & Berg. (Vantaa Fine Clothing)

 

Button Down Shirt

The last contemplation which also may round off my stylistic 2013 relating shirt. For a few years I have almost exclusively led shirts with full spread- or cutawaykrage. In recent times, I have chosen to try to wear button-down shirt, even in formal settings. This looks and feels better than what I had previously experienced. To also wear this shirt with tie stuck with kragsnibbarna unbuttoned gives a wonderfully nonchalant Gianni Agnelli look that looks spontaneous and unscheduled out. However, it is as well as in large parts of the so-called sprezzatura style terrible thought out and studied. Whichever way you choose to wear this kind of shirt so is the versatile and very useful. If I’m going to give any advice on what a basic wardrobe should contain as a button-down shirt in light blue pinpoint oxford a must.
