"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."

Forgot I had these special (as opposed to first) edition Carmina for TheArmoury moccasins in cordovan colour 8.. Which go handsomely with these first (as opposed to special) edition IndigoFarm x TheArmoury dungarees 👍
RAW denim or WARM Cordovan.. What smells better?
Today was one of those days that I said FUK THE RULES & chose to wear dungarees!
Dungarees? Grown Man jeans not Dad Jeans or Gen Y/X2.0 “drop crotch”, “skinny leg”, “drop ass” Hipsters - the difference:
* these are from ACL x Tellason & IMO great fitting jeans for me. I will do a post about these at a later date.
So this week we have discussed back fit & balance, so why not finish with the same.
This 280gm linen from Ariston is ideal when the season starts to warm up (as it is down here in the Antipodes). For example we are in the last days of winter & the weather is hovering between 19c - 22c at midday with cooler mornings & evenings.
Medium to heavy weight linen offers great drape as well as very mouldable to ones body. Being heavier, the creases are also not as hard.
Do yourself a favour & investigate in a medium to heavier weight linen.
