It’s hard to believe that Superga is well over 100 years old. Under the care and attention of Walter Martiny in 1911, the Superga factory began to produce shoes with vulcanized rubber soles. It was here, in Turin, Italy, the Classic Superga 2750 heritage style was born.

After closing during the war, the Superga factory reopened with a mission to bring high quality footwear to the people of Italy.

The Sartorial Striped Shirt


Striped shirts are one of the most underrated shirts in a mans wardrobe, the original name for a striped shirt was the Bengal striped, its got its name from the Bengal striped fabric which originated from the classic gingham weave, although now gingham is characterised by its plaid – or checked – weave, it started life in the Far East as stripes (it’s believed that ging-gang means ‘stripes’ in the Indonesian and Malay languages). So when this fabric started being shipped from Bengal, it made sense to name it after another of Bengal’s most famous exports, the Bengal tiger, since then there has been very many different stripes from pencil stripes to candy stripes, striped shirts are very vivid but stylish, in the early 20s Jazz players wore stylish striped coloured striped shirts, striped shirts became a stylish shirt for young stylish men all over the world, by the 60s came striped shirts became less fashionable.

Jazz Players from the 1920s

In the 80s the striped shirt came back with a bang, bolder the strip sharper the shirt, by the mid 80s early 90s yuppies made the striped shirt apart of their wardrobe, it was all about power dressing red braces & slicked back hair, it was all about the money, the image of a sleazy yuppie put people off striped shirts all together, but striped shirts are back fresher and bolder more than ever.

BUT

DONT DRESS LIKE A CLOWN

The Summer Chic Suit


Here comes Spring guys time to ditch those wintry browns and dark colours, let in the light and get ready for the Summer, the linen and cotton suit is the look for the spring and summer months, normally in a light stone or medium tan is the best look but if you want a baby egg blue its down to you, a linen suit is often frowned up on as it normally gets wrinkled quick and the wearer ends up like they have slept in the suit, but thanks to modern technology linen Suits are normally mixed with polyester which means the suit now stays sharper longer, linen Suits were originally invented to be worn in warmer climates but never to be worn here in the UK, but as fashion changed so did how people dressed, in the 80s Miami Vice  a cop TV programme hit the screens, one of its main characters James “Sonny” Crockett  played by Don Johnson was famous for wearing stylish cotton Suits, he popularized, if not invented, the “T-shirt under the jacket look,  designers such as Vittorio Ricci, Gianni Versace, and Hugo Boss were consulted in keeping the male leads looking trendy, the show completely changed in how men dressed, and popularized Italian men’s fashion in the United States, pink, blue, green, peach, fuchsia, and other pastel colours became the colour to be seen in, summer style could now be suited but still cool.

After the 80s and 90s fashion went through many changes again but classics looks never go out of style, welcome to 2015 the linen suit is back in vogue with more vigour and swagger,  but from where in the 80s the suits were more unconstructed & loose-fitting, the Suits of today are more suited and cut in a stylish fit, the colours are not as loud as the eighty’s but still very chic, the look of the suit is of one that screams summer time, you can dress the Suits up with a crisp white shirt & classy tie, for a more casual look you can go for a T-shirt in a pastel colour and some stylish loafers, don’t for get the shades and a dapper pocket square.

Its spring but by the way the weather going it like December so having the right outwear is important, you need a light stylish coat that looks good for business and casual use, the mac is a great choice to go for its very sartorial but super stylish, the style you want is a short length in a classy khaki or light tan colour, the mac goes by many other names rain coat trench coat even flasher mac ha, the Burberry trench coat is the most famous brand of mac around, traditionally a mac is usually made from lightweight polyester cotton, when choosing a mac look for one with a removable lining so you have a coat for all the seasons fashionista`s,

 untitledGGGGG

Columbo  in his shitty mac not a good look

So why choose a mac you ask, the reason why they are uber cool also very practical, there are many colours you can choose from but like I said before khaki and tan are the best colours, going for black is ok but you might end up looking like you’re an extra on a KGB film, the other key to looking good in a mac is getting the sizing right, if you go for a mac in a big size you could end up looking like scruffy Lt Columbo  in his shitty mac not a good look guys.
