Dear all,

I hope this message finds you well. After months reading the forum contents I have finally decided to joint you.

I am mainly interested in soft tailoring but really looking forward to learn from you all. I just moved to a country in which temperatures are way lower than in my country of origin (Norway vs Italy), so I guess that your experience will be very valuable while facing the reorganization of my wardrobe.

Best wishes,

AVG

Thank you for the warming welcoming.

Mainly how to learn to do layering while playing with textures/patterns. In Italy we mainly enjoy of beautiful fabrics and cuts, now I guess that it will be the time to became more pragmatic in sake of usability.

This will require you to think outside of the box. Meaning thinking ourtside of a predominantly warm weather Mediterranean mindset. Some creative thinking on your part will be necessary in order for you to recalibrate. However, you do not need to sacrifice beautiful fabrics and cuts in order to achieve usability. These concepts, fabrics and cuts and/or usability aren't mutually exclusive. Brother, you can have your cake and eat it too! Do you have any specific questions regarding warmer weather fabrics, patterns, etc. or photos of what you have in mind to revamp your wardrobe? I'm happy to assist. Let's go from there.

Thank you, @Sinyo18. I would't like to monopolize much this thread. What I meant is that now I will have to get adapted myself to "coarser" fabrics (heavier, less soft, more durable) in other words, english mills.

My new aim is to learn how to play with various patterns/textures in a coherent way. To do layering effectively rather than using few pieces of thick fabrics. Here you can find an example of what I mean (photo credit: gonta_0405).

Yes, you'll have to incorporate heavier materials. If the photo that you've posted is an indication of what you aspire to in your pursuit, then I believe that you're on the right track. Best wishes!
