I heard that fellow French blogger Florent-Alexis Wessels Faustin launched a collection of made-to-measure suits and accessories but I hadn’t gotten around to meeting him to discuss his referral-only business, Confident Paris. Needless to say, I was very excited when he invited me to come visit his workshop (and apartment) in Paris’ 18th district. Just as I expected, his style was on point and I had to snap his picture and share the outfit with you.
Last Saturday was a pretty warm day in Paris. We met up with a couple of friends at the Comptoir Général by the Canal Saint Martin and when leaving the bar we bumped into this guy who kindly let me take his picture. I love the way he’s rocking the black tee, wearing it with a pair of grey pants, beat up black oxford shoes and a fedora. Nothing out of the extraordinary, but rather a great ensemble.
On Tuesday, Olivia and I travelled to the Stables d’Ecaussines in Belgium to attend a press event for the launch of the 2015/2016 season of the Longines Masters, formerly known as Masters Grand Slam. Though we’re not equestrian sports experts, we were delighted to be there and hear about the competition now held in Paris, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. Horse-riding being quite an elegant sport, we knew we would get to interact with some dapper gents.
On Mondays, before I get anything done and even start to think about what I have on for the day, I like to pick a book from my shelves and flip through it. There’s nothing like starting the week feeling inspired, refreshed and the head full of stylish photographs. I recommend you do the same, and in case you need help building up your personal library, I put together a list of my all time favorite books about men’s style.
This week’s streetstyle inspiration is coming straight from Pitti Uomo by way of the awesome streetstyle blog You Just Got Spotted. I’ve always been a fan of the two Canadian photographers behind the blog and so it was only natural that I’d share some of their work for you guys on here.
I’ve recently discovered the Japanese photographer Wataru Shimosato and her blog An Unknown Quantity (where I could spend hours). I especially like one of her recent posts where she presents (in pictures) her favorite streetstyle photographers, including YoungJun Koo, the blogger behind the site I’m Koo. I love YoungJun’s work and it’s a delight to finally be able to put a face on the character.
