From Wish list to Wardrobe
A few weeks back I spoke about how I’ve been trying to strip back my wardrobe and focus on a carefully selected collection of well-made, versatile basics.
It’s not a groundbreakingly original idea but what it has done is allow me to invest in items that will last. A much welcomed change to the mess of throw-away high street pieces that I’d wear for one season (sometimes one time) and then banish to the dark depths of my overflowing wardrobe.
I’ve recently invested in a number of pieces that have been in my shopping basket for some time. Myself and Tom took a few minutes out of our working week to snap a few shots of what has become my go-to smart-casual uniform.
The Asket loopback sweatshirt in grey is made from 100% Egyptian cotton and with the Swedish company’s signature sizing options, you get the perfect fit for your build. As versatile as it is comfortable, this sweatshirt blends effortlessly between the office and the weekend.
These Filippa K trousers are still on my wish list but in the meantime, the Selected Homme tapered trouser is the perfect alternative.
I finally splashed the cash on the Common Projects Achilles I’d coveted for so long and I’ve got no regrets. Quality leather and an iconic silhouette mean that they go with just about every outfit. They add the smart to this smart-casual outfit.
For me, the finishing touch to every look is a great watch. Designed in Edinburgh and made in Berlin, this minimal three hand watch features a black calf leather strap, stainless steel casing and precision Swiss movement. I’d written about the Mill Project Nelson Series back in May and it feels great to finally own one.
Let me know what you think of the pieces in the comment section or over on social media.
