Took my first ever MTM item, a thin overcoat from Saman Amel, out for its virgin voyage today! Sorry about the picture quality and the lack of pictures with the coat actually closed, had a slight brainfart and it just slipped my mind. Also the weather was so fine today. Jumper is a cotton/cashmere one from Morgano Chinos from Entre Amis Light grey sneakers from Superga  
Hoping it'll fit well, so I'll be able to contribute with an actual picture of it :-)
I love a good end-of-summer sale!   First off, a cotton jacket from Boglioli, with patch pockets. My first sport coat, and I needed something quite casual, and so I thought: 'Hey! Boglioli?'. Then I bought a down gilet, just for kicks.     Next off, two pairs of chinos from Entre Amis. Nothing out of the ordinary. But I'm trying to build up a wardrobe with all the basics right now, so this'll do for now.   Lastly, a pair of chukka boots from Herring for...
 That tie is fantastic, very nice choice Murlsquirl!  And those are some great gloves, gyasih. I was so tempted to buy a similar pair of peccary gloves from Hestra, but I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a pair of gloves at this point :( As nice as they look and as great as they feel, the best part about them is actually the fit. I don't have huge feet and most socks I own tend to glide down all the time, whereas these feel like they were made for my feet...
My most recent shopping spree landed me with:     5 blue wool blend socks from Viyella, 4 grey ones and a pair of cashmere socks from Pantherella in a cozy navajo pattern for those soft days at home.     Merino wool sweater from Maglieria Sartoriale. Really like the 'uneven' color on this, and it feels great!     A light blue shirt from Rose & Born, picked it up during their sale.     Black saffiano leather belt from Berg & Berg and a navy cashmere tie...
Hard but not impossible? I'm determined to get some darker grain, it looks a bit weird when it's the same colour as the calf. I guess regular paint or a sharpie will have to do as a last resort. ;)
Just picked up my Carmina balmoral boots from SkoAB! At first try they feel wonderful, much softer than I expected them to be.   I do however prefer the previous colour scheme more than this one; there was more of a contrast between the calf and grain on the older version. To remedy this, I'm thinking about trying to make the grain darker on my boots and that brings my to the following question: what polish do you guys recommend (from Burgol)? Dark brown, black?
Placed an order on a pair of boots earlier today. Would've loved paying the shop a visit to try out the last, but job interviews will keep me busy today and I just couldn't miss out on the boots again.    
Sweet! Expect a visit from me this week in that case, gotta snag one before someone else does!
 Will you be receiving a restock of the Carmina Balmoral grain/calf boots before September 8? I know it says mid-September on your page, but here's hoping! Either way, a price increase won't put me off from buying a pair as long as the last fits my feet. ;)
