Gille’s Mises

20130930-145313.jpg

Gilles doesn’t have a Tumblr blog, but he really should. This dude would be all the rage if he posted WIWT selfies — he really knows how to do odd jacket/trou better than anyone I know, all on a shoestring budget. His unlined patch pocket Pal Zileri Sartoriale blazer was thrifted 100 USD on ebay. Shirt by Barba Napoli. And of course, he’s wearing suede dubmonks to rock your Pitti.

I stand corrected. In an earlier debate with paul-lux.tumblr.com, I favoured dark gray trou with odd brown SC, but I went back to lighter gray here upon his suggestion, and now I think he’s right about the combination.

First attempt at pin collar, with a Swann & Oscar CMT MTM shirt. Boggi birdseye SC & flannel trou. Handson gauze tie. Kimono silk ps. C&J suede brogues.
