"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."

This is it.
To answer the messages since the earlier posts today - the only element I would change with my pattern is a larger chest pocket to accommodate my glasses and 1.5cm longer in the body if I was to commission a suit.
I’m very excited to see my good friend Patrick has expanded his suit offering to provide makes from Naples & Rome depending on your style.
As I prefer a softer construction, minimal padding (actually there is no shoulder padding in this sports jacket), no lining as my core temperature runs higher than average, Patrick suggest we use the ever popular folk at Orazio Luciano from Naples.
The cloth is 100% wool in a open square weave (almost like wool crepe), so spongey in feel and almost rollable like a spring sweater - perfect for travel.
Going forward, I will start documenting a suggested essentials for the modern #CreativeProfessional to build on or #WearWithOutCare.
The colour palette will be very monotone, no primary colours.
There won’t be any dandyism, bow-ties, foppish ideas, retina burning patterns, cravats, walking sticks, highly polished shoes/soles (yes, there are some that polish the soles of their shoes) or snuff boxes - we good!
