"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

Business Casual aka Dressing to Meet the “Parents”
I can just hear it - FINALLY …
One of the most common questions I receive is how to execute “business casual.”
For me, this is very much like going to meet your partner’s parents for the first time (worse still is if it’s at their home). If you think “business casual” is difficult, imagine what dressing for this would be like. How you dress will be as much a reflection of your partner as it will be of you, so if you’re not well prepared, you should understand the consequences that will come. It’s really that simple.
Here are the basics I always follow:
* also, nothing whimsical or comical
Details | Sports coat - denim coloured herringbone weave linen from Ariston P Johnson for GW | Trou - ecru pin cord from Loro Piana P Johnson for GW | Shirt - chocolate gingham Thomas mason “Silver Line” shirting from Mystery Bespoke | PS - vintage Japanese silk | Shoes - Edward Green “Dover” for Leather Soul
FYI - this particular post is circa 2011 from the days when I had to wear a suit to work. Noticed it had resurfaced and thought it was still valid for those that still email me for menswear advice.
Excited to announce that their first two American trunk shows will be in New York and Chicago. The suits are made with love in Italy. With a focus on traditional light weight construction coupled with a sharper sporty cut, they are able to create suits that are comfortable and flattering. Guided by experienced tailors with a wide selection of cloths from Europe’s finest mills, you are in good hands. To ensure we achieve the best possible result, they will be back for follow up fittings every 7 weeks. Suits from US$1200
New York trunk show February 17th - 19th at The Towers - The New York Palace Hotel - 455 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10022
Chicago trunk show February 20th - 22nd at The Public Hotel - 1301 N State Pkwy, Chicago, IL 60610
