This morning, before taking the photos that you are going to see I’ve been involved in a very nice episode. While I was walking down the street I’ve been stopped by an elegant couple of old people. They did this just to congratulate for the beauty of my sweater.
This little fact makes me reflect about a very important theme like the quality of the product, which is an absolutely fundamental element when we talk about fashion. Buying thanks to low-cost chains and being trapped by the power brands it’s absolutely normal, I usually do it and you know it, but you have to realize that quality can’t be always overshadowed.
The outfit I propose is made by clothing that seem very distressed. I think that the character partially depends on the natural materials of the clothes.
I bought sweater and jeans at Eral 55, a very surprising shop which is perfect for the urban dandy.
The pullover is completely handmade. It has been used more than half of a kilo of cotton for it. The result? definitively amazing!
Considering that the quantity of yarn can give a “structure”, this pullover can easily replace a blazer.
These jeans are Levi’s 501. They are completely customized. A peculiar washing done in a specific laundry of L.A. makes them unique.
I’ve try to take inspiration from Ralph Lauren. Hope you like it.
