Cordone shirt the chic geek"Cordone shirts are really well known for the superior, high-quality fabrics and vestability. This shirt is a style staple yet offers a peculiar sleeve stitching that sets it apart.  Shirtmakers Cordone construct their shirts by stitching the first two parts of the body, front and back, and then re-attaching the sleeves to guarantee the best fit possible. I love mixing up different styles to mirror my personality and this versatile Cordone shirt in jeans paired with a jacket is real must have for me this season".

Maglia umbrella"I can’t forget my favourite  A/W wardrobe staple, a Maglia umbrella.

Miserocchi Brown Camel Leather Ankle Boots"Miserocchi is one of my preferred shoe brands because they are so comfortable, entirely made by hand, and created in the finest supple leathers on the market. My A/W wardrobe cannot be without a pair of Miserocchi ankle boots because not only do they keep my feet warm, but I don’t have to  renounce comfort and style. 

Interesting side-note: Each pair requires at least two and a half hours of artisan craftsmanship, using only the finest Tuscan leather. The true artisan value lies in the fact that the shoemaker ‘feels’ and ‘regulates’ each stitch of every boot to ensure the most tailored elegant fit".

Cappellificio Beillese Gingham Jockey Cap"Because each item that makes up my look has to quintessentially hold both a special story and be made out of the best materials on the market. This hat from Cappelificio Biellese does not disappoint…. and not only! I am really into this blue print. I think a blue hat is a must have in everyman’s winter wardrobe".
