Plaza Uomo USA - - JOURNAL -

grandpa used to work in the gar­den in a suit and tie. He was a re­ally stylish gen­tle­man and a big in­spi­ra­tion for me. But the time has passed when we dressed up ev­ery­day, no mat­ter what. To­day, we need clothes that fit dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions. Most guys grow up wear­ing jeans and a t-shirt. So when the time comes to start wear­ing a suit, they need clothes that bridge the gap be­tween ca­sual and tailored.

Thank­fully, a lot has hap­pened. Suits are made softer, more com­fort­able. When the Ital­ians started to wash their jack­ets, they re­ally paved the way for a softer look. To­day, you can see a guy wear­ing a €1000 suit with a pair of €50 sneak­ers, and I re­ally like that. The shirt is a great com­pan­ion in that wardrobe. De­pend­ing on your moods and needs, you can ei­ther dress up or dress down a suit, de­pend­ing on which shirt you choose.

Per­son­ally, I like to work with ba­sic colours, and to keep it clean. Be care­ful with mix­ing pat­terns. I like that the clothes are be­com­ing a lit­tle bit big­ger, jack­ets a lit­tle bit longer, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the fit. The idea of com­fort is not to be un­der­es­ti­mated.
