BLOG EVERYDAY CLASSIC
We continue the topic of the Poszetka 10th birthday and so we invite you to read some interesting facts from our history! We divided the topic into two parts - in the first one, we mention our beginnings, several (sometimes surprising!) publications, exceptional (for many reasons) photo sessions and important places. Read further.
It might seem that we wrote so much about tweed last autumn that there isn’t much left to say. And yet on the occasion of our new collection’s launch and the presentation of the sportcoats, some questions still arised - most prominently, what the hell does Barleycorn mean?
It often happens that even after hard and sad times, precious and nice souvenirs remain. Clothes are no exception here - the trenches of the Great War left behind a trench coat, World War II resulted in adoption of modern dress (and to a smaller degree, suit) cuts and the Vietnam War gave us the M65 jacket… Now it turns out that the period of the Polish People's Republic (PRL) resulted in a great, functional raincoat!
Last Fall, Winter and early Spring we have been writing there a lot about tweed. This is the fabric that we - both me personally and the whole Poszetka team - truly love to wear and show around. What to do when it is too hot to wear it? How can we replace it, not giving up the rich texture and versatility?
Every great wardrobe needs a solid foundation, but how should it look like?
Summer is coming - and it seems that it will be even hotter this year. Such a weather needs a proper cloth to combat the heat in style, especially if we cannot (or just don’t want to) abandon suits completely. Here is our proposition - cotton seersucker!
It's the 7th episode already! This time we talk to Michał Frąckiewicz, a blogger (although he uses this term less and less) and menswear industry insider. Have a read.
These weird times that we have to live in at the moment are forcing everyone to change the way they work an live and become more creative, at least when looking for some temporary solutions. It is also the reason why our new series, Product Focus, were born - a spontaneous look at our products, different from what we have done before.
In the fourth episode of the Questionnaire, we talk to Mikołaj Pawełczak, who you could already know better as the author of the Blue Loafers blog. Welcome!
Everyone associates tweed with the British Isles. For many, its synonym is the famous Harris Tweed, originally from the Scottish Outer Hebrides, of strictly protected origin. Fewer people know that it has a somewhat less known, but equally characteristic cousin in Ireland - the Donegal Tweed.
In the third episode of The Questionnaire we interview Mateusz Tryjanowski - the chief editor of our Everyday Classic, man responsible for majority of articles you read here. But what else does he do? How did he began his menswear career? Read more to know the answers.
Navy blue seems to be the most popular color in classic men's fashion, currently well ahead of gray. It is the default suit color, be it for work, for wedding or for other important occasions. It is also the color of the most universal sportcoat (the blazer), the majority of elegant ties and, probably, the most popular mens socks. But what about trousers?
Neapolitan tailoring boomed in the recent years, paving its way to the top. Its synonym became the la giacca napoletana - a jacket based on a lightweight construction, with any unnecessary padding removed, comfortable and stylish. Could such a jacket be accompanied by ordinary trousers?
The integral part of our Everyday Classic blog will be The Questionnaire - a repeating series of questions answered by our special guests. We invite you to read the first episode, starring Tomek Godziek - the person who, together with his beloved wife Asia, established Poszetka.com and runs it to this day.
