Italian tweed - a sartorial oxymoron?
This Corneliani SC is made from a very interesting fabric which I have not come across before - 50% cashmere, 50% mohair. It has the supple softness of cashmere combined with the robustness of mohair and together it feels very much like some of the finer woven English tweeds. The cut is also distinctly Italian, with gentle waist suppression and relatively straight skirt, straight, flapped pockets and a continental shoulder - an Italian take on the traditional British hacking jacket.

I am usually not very fond of light ties with darker shirts, or at least I find it to be a look that is very hard to pull off well. I recently got this royal blue shirt from my shirtmaker and I had originally intended to use it more casually, without ties. But today I decided to try it out with a lighter tie, just to challenge myself to wear combinations I am not normally used to wearing. Because of the rather bright colour of the shirt and tie, I decided to go with muted colours of tan and white for the rest of the outfit. I’m actually kind of pleased with the look and I think it turned out far better that I thought it would. Sometimes it good to push you boundaries, I guess.
