A double-breasted Burberry London coat in hard-wearing cotton-gabardine is a sartorial classic. With a sharp cut and leather buckles, this piece looks as smart now as it did when Burberry first started producing trenches over 100 years ago. Tie the belt behind the back for a nonchalant air.

Fashion industry is fast evolving and only a few stand the test of time. On Finaest (one of my most recent findings) there is an amazing selection of some historic Italian Fashion brands with prestige and experience. Moreover, on Finaest there is a whole new world of experiences you can have. My absolutely favorite part of it is the “behind the scenes” experience. In it you can see how a product is created, the philosophy and the culture behind a design along with the showcase of the craftsmanship of true artisans.
Every Sunday this summer, my friends and I go out to the woods (well the park) for a walk. Everything is so peaceful there. The city’s noises seem to disappear and all you can hear is nature’s call. You can hear the birds’ song, the sound of the water, even your walk. We are usually having a picnic on a tree branch. It’s really a moment I enjoy and I wish I could take it with me for the whole week. I thought I could take a little piece of wood from the tree but thank God there’s Woodchuck.

Twenty-first century man is so busy and has to be in many places without having time to change outfits. He constantly has to look sharp and well-put-together. This is an everyday challenge that men face and we will try in this article.
First of all though, let’s meet the two men that will help us. The first one is Ryder and the other one is Clément. Ryder is an economical analyst. His style is preppy and his favorite color is navy. He loves to be sharp and ready for whatever comes in his way. Clément is a senior fashion editor for a fashion magazine. He loves experimenting with his style and his favorite color is black. He loves black and white when he is dressing himself just because he sees so much color in his career. Though, he introduces some color through accessories.
Secondly, let’s see what piece of clothing we are going to see them wearing through their day. Of course, it is a black skinny suit, as it is very classic and extremely versatile. The black skinny fit blazer and trousers that we see here is by Topman, available at Nordstrom. I decided to go with this partnership just because there is a huge amount of different style clothes and they are affordable as much as they are qualitative.
Spring is finally here. The weather is just getting better and better. There are colors in nature and it is the time of the year that we transition from our winter wardrobes to our summer ones. Fashion becomes brighter and for me it is just another excuse to buy more clothes, shoes and accessories.
Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to start searching for my new obsessions. As it is mentioned in their site: “Fashion changes. Shopping changes. Their commitment to happy costumers doesn’t.”, that’s why I like Nordstrom. They see fashion as a business of optimism and that is the spirit that you get. Optimism that emanates from experience of helping their customers possess style and not just buy fashion. Nordstrom tries and gives you a really pleasant experience in shopping either it is through going to one of their stores or by paying a visit at their online site or their mobile application.
Saint Laurent seeks to disrupt accepted sartorial standards, and this slim-fitting blazer comes with peaked leather lapels for a rakish twist.
