BespoKenN has been on a roll all week. If you’re not following him, fix that right now.
There is no denying it, coats made from luxurious fabrics such camel hair, alpaca, cashmere etc. are heavenly in every possible way. The fabric’s superior handle, colour and softness can improve a man’s presence far beyond that of any cottons or wools; however, like a proverbial double-edged sword, the fabric’s opulent character can just as easily swing against the wearer’s favor and void him of his presence – especially if the rest of his outfit isn’t up to par, making him end up looking like the coat’s accessory.

Ripe for wintery goodness in Melbourne at the moment.
It’s scorching hot out there!!! But I just can’t ignore the wintery goodness that is slowly going to find its way into stores this year.
Here’s a preview on what Cantarelli has coming next season. A good amount of bordeaux and burgundy found its way into the lookbook along with a flaming christmas red.
Ah well, everything seems to be gearing towards Derek’s prediction for a Burgundy-fied Fall 2011…
Have come across L.B.M. 1911 just prior to Pitti this year, with it really gaining much exposure during the actual trade show. The variety of sports coats is amazing and I hear they are quite affordable too. All I have to do now is track down an online retailer.
