"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."

Oskar is now 91cm nose to tail! On another note, riding solo is equivalent to another 5c colder.. #wymtm #what_were_you_doing_this_morning #rapha_tow_rope #itelefono5s #mrs_wongs_studio

Some of you have asked over the last few weeks about the details of my wedding suit.
Here goes. Navy suit with three curved patch pockets, three roll two buttoning, twin vents, half lined, minimal (almost bare) shoulder padding, “spalla camicia” sleeve head construction, broader lapels, fuller chest with shape through the waist. Pantaloons are flat front, button fly, side tabs, ankle length and 5cm cuffs. In a high performance 100% Italian wool. The suit was made for me by Patrick Johnson Tailors via their Neapolitan production.
I then paired it with a white shirt from my favourite shirt tailors Ascot Chang, a chocolate wool knit tie and a white linen pocket square with contrast piping at each side (navy, chocolate, yellow and pink) both from Ermengildo Zegna.
Finally, nothing was new. The suit is a few years old, the shirt almost four years, the tie and pocket square about 6 years old..
Stay tuned as I will post more details on @wearwithoutcare very soon .. #latergram #some_wedding #msxandguido #mr_and_mrs_wong #family_tales
Many have asked over the last few weeks why sans socks and the choice of footwear. It’s all about context and in this case our wedding was a mid day event within a restored green house and the dress code was “lounge”.
The shoes were an old pair made for me from Edward Greens “Top Drawer” program via @leathersoul back in 2010. More details can be found http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2013/05/31/edward-green-oundle-in-cognac-shell-cordovan-lsw/ .. Stay tuned as I will post more details on @wearwithoutcare .. #latergram #some_wedding #msxandguido #mr_and_mrs_wong

If not for my sister and her daughter, today wouldn’t have happened. My niece for giving me a reason to live all those years ago. My sister for sending me on an errand that by chance provided me the opportunity to meet my wife.. #latergram #family_tales #msxandguido #mr_and_mrs_wong
These guys are not just good riders or great Domestiques, but two that I can call on to advise, correct me and remind me about #figjam .. Wasn’t easy as there are other important riders in the bunch which also have a strong role in my life. Thanks @de_renner_ and @mark_stoneham .. #latergram #msxandguido #mr_and_mrs_wong
A moment with my nephew on my wedding day .. Guess the conversation. And it maybe about this. When making 2 minute instant noodles, add another minute and don’t use the included sachets of faux flavour. Use real chicken stock. At boil, mix in eggs and keep stirring around to make sure the egg is all stringy. Finally before serving, add canned sweet corn niblets (the more the better) and pour the juices in as that will cool down the soup enough to not burn your tongue .. #latergram #family_tales #msxandguido #mr_and_mrs_wong
