ROARING 2013 ~Happy Chinese New Year~

The roaring 20s, Downton Abbey, The Great Gatsby....these are the first few things appear in my mind when it comes to the issue of classy trim men. When Cyd Charisse and Fred Astaire swing dancing to jazz, the general scene of the roaring 20s is here: waist-fitted blazer, unpadded or double-breasted styles,  button-the-top-button attitude as well as the refined and striking pant crease.

“When most children were collecting insects or Matchbox cars,” reported The Boston Globe in 2007, “a young Hamish Bowles started collecting couture in London.”" It's said that Hamish Bowles' personal wardrobe is a delightfully eccentric parade of dandyism—classy yet intriguing and creative.Inspired by Bowles, this time I make a breakthrough again to try something new on me——the most classic but modern form of menswear, three-piece suit.


INSPIRATION 
Hamish Bowles, Justin O'Shea, Coats' diversity, Roaring 20s, the Great Gatsby, Downton Abbey

ITEMS ON THE LIST 
LANVIN double-breasted blazer/ANN DEMEULEMEESTER jacquard-woven blazer/ BURBERRY PRORSUM metallic silk rain coat/O'KEEFFE
Milo leather wingtip brogues



I get the three-piece suit from www.dandyinne.com, and the physical products prove themselves to be exquisitely tailored.Surprisingly, It's not until I put on the suit when I actually get the real means of fit.Totally different from the female blazers (I've worn them so many times before...), menswear blazer provides me with exactly the right cuttings and waist  line which can magically polish my physical shape and proportion. This time I think I've got to know why they say even the most traditional menswear can look just as modern as any of the hottest new trends.

Moreover, I drape a cocoon silhouette coat with contrast patterns over my shoulders as an alternative to the look, which not only makes it warmer and more wearable in winter but also not seems like overdone.



Last but not least, 
the Chinese New Year of the lunar calendar 
is on the way now.
Biggest heart to all of you.
