Spring / Summer
It goes without saying that every man should have at least one bespoke or at least MTM suit in his wardrobe. Men of standard silhouettes will always be able to find a suit or jacket for themselves, colloquially speaking "off the rack", only to have it altered by a good tailor. Men with a less standard bodies are left with bespoke tailoring or major alterations to the finished product, which rarely guarantees a satisfactory result. However, these situations usually only apply to suits at most - what if you want, or need, to step it up and get a proper outfit for evening wear? It gets a little bit complicated from here, but doesn't every adventure have to start somewhere?
Throughout the history of fashion and style, many items of clothing have had more or less widespread stereotypes and associations that have influenced the perception of the garment in question - but none can boast as many as a certain inconspicuous piece of headgear - namely the beret.
In common speech, they are usually referred to as striped ties. They are designed and sewn in thousands of variations in colour and material, most often without reference to their historical origins. They are extremely versatile, although contrary to common belief, they are not suitable for every occasion.
Summer is in full swing and the sun is not making life any easier in the big city... even under the shade the temperature is dazzling while the hustle and noise make your head go spinning. Fortunately - weekend arrives and just to feel a hint of relief, we journey to the riverside.
That's probably how John Travolta would deal with the mess in scorching Miami, had he been cast as Sonny Crockett instead of Don Johnson...
Everyone knows what a "polo" shirt is - short sleeves, soft collar, small placket. This deceptively simple combination appears to be a part almost of every man's casual outfit. Some of the old guard see it as a necessary evil in the form of a t-shirt substitute, while the more adventurous wear them with blazers and even suits! Although it is not complex in its construction, the polo shirt has lived to see many variations. It can also boast an interesting history, which would be good starting point.
They have earned their place in popculture a long time ago. Eagerly worn by beachgoers on the sandy shoes of Miami, but also by actors, celebrities and royals. Hawaiian shirts (known also "Aloha" shirts) are a summer classic, with the uncanny ability to liven up your wardrobe be it on a sunny vacation or in the concrete jungle.
As a result of the complexity of the machinery used to create them, these fabrics have unique designs which are created by our designers to make a garment worn for a special occasion even more exclusive.
I’ve realized that most of the articles on #menswear I stumbled across in the last few months somehow deals with "the end of the suit", "death of the dress code" and other macabre-sounding (at least in the fashion context) events. Well, there is a lot of truth in those claims, but… every cloud has a silver lining.
The lookbook of our first drop of the spring 22 collection. We've designed it having the recently trendy capsule wardrobe. The idea is pretty simple - the majority of clothes fit each other well, are consistent when it comes to aesthetics, and creates well thought out outfits with a little bit of effort.
Ah, those navy blue sportcoats, the neverending topic… So much has been written about them and so much is yet to be - and rightly so! Even though I haven’t really been their biggest fan up until recently, I think I started to appreciate them again, seeing their advantages and versatility in different ways than before. In fact, I am even slowly getting to experiment with forms that I was extremely skeptical about before, as those that title refers to - so there is always something new to write about.
Portugese coast has a lot to offer. We started our journey on cliffs and ended it on a wide, sandy beach. The wind didn't spare us at all, though it brought some much needed respite from the southern sun.

I took a moment off from writing about clothes, but I'm back - and not with just any topic, but with quite a difficult one, about hats. A bit of a tutorial, a bit of a column. Have a read!
When I sat down to write this text, I briefly went (mentally) back in time to around 2015 - times when the Pitti Uomo fascination was reaching its peak, the so-called "Italian style" (including double monk strap shoes, wiiiide lapels etc.) was everywhere and Naples seemed to be the world capital of menswear. Today, however, I can approach the topic with consideration and use this text as an opportunity to clarify several issues and deal with a few myths. Have a read!
To follow up the blog entry showcasing the spring-summer collection in the PreLookbook form, we've decided to stop for a moment and show you our newest PoW "Ferla" jacket a bit more closely. What makes it unique? And what about the name? How to pair it? We'll answer all those and additional questions in today's entry.</p></p></p>
Preorder + Lookbook = PreLookbook. Simple, isn't it? Apparently so, and yet you can say that this concept is something new. Well, we will not cheat that in March we already have a beautiful and hot summer here in Poland - that's why we will save the proper lookbook until a bit later, and now we invite you to the studio, for our new pre-lookbook.
March has just begun, but this year has already greeted us with a beautiful spring-ish weather here! However, mornings and nights are still rather cool (and will stay like this for some time), so it's not yet time to change your wardrobe into a summer one. So, what is the good way to dress like for now? Hmmm... maybe it's worth taking cues from the fall season.
