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:

  • Premium RAW denim not bagged out stone-washed or some bizarre acid wash
  • Straighter leg
  • Higher rise as Grown Men tuck their shirts in
  • Pin roll cuffs

* 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.

The Armoury x Carmina “Penny Loafer” in colour #8 cordovan shell on Xim last.
These were made as per The Armoury directions as many would not try a full moccasin construction with cordovan shell - well done boys men!
What’s nice is the slight almond toe shape & the longer vamp to give it a slight modern edge.
The loafer is also unlined, making these great for summer or travel.
Being cordovan shell, these require minimal care which is another bonus for travellers. Just a brush or wipe down at the end of a day is really all that is needed. & in time, the Cordovan shell will have a unique glow.
Now. Guess what colour I have on order as a one off.
The wait has started..
My new favourite loafer.
