I wish I was old enough to pull of a double breasted as well as you do here..Really would love a bright navy one for this summer. Amazing watch by the way, and lovely shine on those shoes.
Sadly, at 28, I think it would be percieved in a negative manner. Especially in my humdrum work environment.
Maybe when I hit 30?
Where's the new FC Challenge?
Love that look BetelG
Here it is
Good luck on the greens this weekend, my putter got hot my friend!
You can do it, tell them some F.I.B. challenged you!
EFV, that is fantastic. What's the business plan?
Cleav, awesome as usual. Really cool pictures.
Very kind of you Murl, really appreciate it
Great question for EFV
Thanks... but I am 26!
The jecket of yours is awesome! I tried that one at SuitSupply and wanted to kop but the sleeves need a lot of shortening. I tried the 46L
you're just a little kid!!!
Hey, that's my line!
how tall are you Betel?
Spoiler: What we're up to
Me and my best friend/business partner have been working on this for some time, as a pet project on the side of our main business. We have designed some suits and coats that will be released in August in select stores in Sweden and on our web page (nothing much to see there at the present but it will soon be updated with some very interesting stuff). This suit is not in the collection but was made especially for Pitti, so I can wear one of our suits when we go there. We have only made A/W stuff so far. The business plan is to make suits that are not particularly Italian, English or American in style, but rather Swedish (i.e. quite minimalistic in design and features). It's also our contribution to try keeping suits relevant outside of traditional CBD environments. The suits are quite casual and are designed to be able to wear as separates, so you get a jacket, vest and pants that doesn't look orphaned when worn with other garments. Our coats will probably cater a wee bit more to the SWD crowd, but we have at least one that will be quite MC.
This isn't the full business plan of course, but a rough estimate of what we're doing. I will keep you all updated, we've got some very interesting stuff coming up.
Well, pot, met kettle haha. Just kidding. In all seriousness I give you kudos for wearing the double-breasted jackets at 26. The only thing stopping me is the potential "crossing the line" that it may incur at work. I feel like I teeter on that edge as is sometimes .
EFV I love that suit. Your suits and jackets always fit so impeccably. Kudos!
Congrats on the new suit EFV, hope your brand will become the new SF favourite!
Something casual and tentatively summery:
Unlined/unstructured cotton DB, OCBD and duck canvas trousers for the sunny yet breezy weather.
