BURBERRY: Festive Beauty of Urban British Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are ready for a new fashion adventure. Winter is the most interesting fashion period when we all tend to experiment a lot and play with fashion. A cashmere coat is the best investment with which you can always create a large number of outfit combinations without much thought. My story today will be dedicated to my most favorite British fashion house that you had the opportunity to see years ago on the Mr.M blog – Burberry.

All the people who have been following my blog for years know that I have a great love for Burberry trench-coats and coats, honestly I don’t even know how many of their fashion pieces I own anymore, but I know that this is my favorite trench and the color that I always like to wear – the color of honey. Soft pastel golden camel color that blends very easily with other colors.

Burberry trenchcoats and coats represent the pinnacle of world fashion and have become indispensable fashion classics today. These coats were created by the founder of the Burberry company, Thomas Burberry, more than 100 years ago, inspired by the British heritage, and at the same time introduced elements of urban fashion.

You can find all classic Burberry coats in 5 basic models: Legendary Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Waterloo and Pimlico. All models are named after London districts. What is the difference between these models?

The Kensington – a classic model with a modern cut that easily adapts to any silhouette. The most popular model, which is available in four basic colors: gray, navy, honey color (camel) and black. Also, this model is made in two lengths. The coat you see on me today is this model.

The Westminster – a model that is extended (oversized) and lightly cut for a draped silhouette. Basic colors: honey color (camel) and dark green (khaki). Also, this model is made in two lengths.

The Chelsea – a model characterized by a slim fit (narrow form close to the body) with narrow shoulders and a cut waist. The basic colors are honey and taupe and it is also available in two lengths.

The Waterloo – A more comfortable fit, a longer model than the classic with a subtle and relaxed fit that is ideal for layering. This model is usually made in three basic colors: maroon, black and honey-camel and is available in only one length.

The Pimlico, a simple flat cut decorated with a single-row fastening of a minimalistic character and a modern cut. This model is usually made in navy, biscuit (biscuit color) and honey color – camel. This model is also only available in one classic length.

I would like to note that all the listed colors are only classics that are always produced, but the Burberry company introduces seasonal colors to enrich its offer.

Most Burberry coats have been hand-crafted in Castleford, Yorkshire for over 50 years from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Burberry proudly introduced in 1879. Polished, light and practical, beautiful cotton resistant to all kinds of weather conditions that remains at the heart of the Burberry brand to this day.

The classic coat model originated and developed from the basic form of the Tielocken coat, which was patented in 1912 by Thomas Burberry. A simple but refined unique shape that has been adapted over the years and has become a recognizable Burberry coat.

Each Burberry coat is special and has its own story – one that is made to last and write new pages of life’s chapters together with you. Buying a Burberry trench or coat is an investment, it is a fashion piece that can really be worn nicely and for a long time with proper maintenance and it is a thing you can leave for generations to come. I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather and today I keep it carefully and wear it on special occasions because it has a special sentimental value for me.

When the time comes to buy a Burberry trench, it’s a big deal and especially if you are buying a coat for the first time it is very important to buy a “iconic” piece that you can combine with your items from your wardrobe and it is best to buy a coat in your favorite color, without blindly following trends.

To the readers of the Mr.M blog, I have become a recognizable symbol of autumn and winter precisely because of the Burberry trench coats and coats and I have received numerous questions about the advice for smart purchase of a Burberry coat. I have tried to highlight important questions and provide you with adequate answers that can help you during your purchase. All answers represent my personal opinion and certain observations, so don’t generalize things, take this as buying advice.

What are the basic colors you should think about when buying a Burberry trench or coat? There is no universal answer to this question, but I will share with you my opinion and some of my colleagues and fashion experts with whom I like to exchange opinions. I think that for a start, there are 3 colors by which the Burberry trench or coat is recognizable, and they are: Beige (washed stone color), Camel (honey color) and Black color.

These three colors are some fashion statement basics, but as I said it all depends on the taste of the owner of the new Burberry trench, maybe that customer thinks that the basic colors in the palette are: red, purple and olive green. Therefore, a person will decide to buy a coat in one of those colors, which Burberry has in its seasonal offer.

Is the length of the coat crucial when making a purchase decision? Of course! I always try to advise people to buy iconic items in classic cuts and lengths and not to blindly follow trends. Trends are changing, one season there are modern coats of casual cuts with puff sleeves quite long length to the ground, after two months or a year later another trend comes. My most honest advice is to buy a coat of length that suits your body constitution in proportion to your own height. Burberry trench coats exist in several lengths and I am sure you can always find the ideal coat for yourself.

Once again, is it worth investing money in a honey trench coat? If you are a fan of camel color and have a lot of things in pastel or neutral colors, then I think you know the right answer. If you feel some kind of insecurity while trying on a camel coat and reconsider your decision several times, I think it’s best to try another color. When you buy an expensive item like a Burberry coat it is something that must be accompanied by a feeling of fulfillment and security.

The trench coat or a coat are pieces that are worn over other pieces of clothing, so it is best to look at your favorite pieces of clothing and shoes before buying and judge for yourself which are the two or three colors that might come into consideration when buying a coat. Camel color is a neutral color and blends with other colors with great ease, but each of us knows our wardrobe best and you may find the ideal solution since buying a Burberry coat is a real investment.

In today’s blog post you have the opportunity to see a classic model of the Kensington coat made of the finest cashmere in the color of honey, which in my honest opinion is one of the most beautiful colors and the easiest to match with other pieces of clothing from your wardrobe.

Did we fit in nicely at the end? Honestly, I believe we are. After so many years of loyalty to this British brand and because of my personal interest, I have learned a lot about their offer and I am lucky to always be able to show my favorite pieces from the fashion house Burberry on my blog.

Woolrich: We Keep Your Dreams Warm…

My dear fashionistas, happy New 2022 Year! I sincerely hope that the new year will primarily bring us only beautiful things, and let the slightly less beautiful ones remain in the past. I wish you all a lot of health, happiness and love from the bottom of my heart, and the rest will come by itself. I want to thank you and say a big thank you for your support during the previous years and I hope that we will have a good time this year as well.

Today’s post will be dedicated to a new brand that I am sure is familiar to all of you and that you have had the opportunity to notice exceptional pieces of this famous brand with American roots and tradition in Europe and abroad. Today we will meet the Woolrich brand on the Mr.M blog.

Woolrich is a brand that was founded back in 1830 in the United States of America (USA) in the state of Pennsylvania. The basic idea of the brand was to equip people who cultivate an immense passion for nature, who do not see natural elements as a kind of obstacle, but as a life mover. One of the founders of the brand – John Rich once said: “Nature tests and inspires us equally, we are here to encourage our own desire for entertainment and learning about the world around us and of course about ourselves.”

Woolrich is a brand with a long history that has been producing sportswear and outerwear for more than 190 years. This brand is the oldest American outerwear brand. During his first decade of existence, Woolrich mainly created clothes for farmers and wood processors who had to work in extreme climatic conditions.

In addition to them, Woolrich also supplied soldiers during the Civil War with uniforms and blankets that were made from the warmest wool in true American style. True to its heritage, the Woolrich brand is still one of the largest manufacturers when it comes to sportswear and outerwear.

Today, while writing this post, I was thinking about which three words could describe this amazing brand, and I think I came up with the right ones, which are: comfort, durability, resilience combined with simplicity and innovation. This brand nurtures a sporty, but at the same time elegant style that creates various collections every season. Special compositions of natural and artificial fibers create great pieces that are perfect for times when the outside temperatures are low and we need something to keep us warm.

A timeless piece in the Woolrich collection is the Arctic Park, first introduced in 1972, designed to withstand the most extreme temperatures, available with or without a fur collar.

In today’s outfit post you have the opportunity to see the unique Woolrich luxury Polar parka which is made of special Italian eco wool and Loro Piana fabric.

This parka is a unique and iconic winter piece that you should have in your wardrobe. This parka proves top expertise in creating practical pieces that exude modern appeal. Following the example of the legendary Arctic Park, this park you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of exclusive eco-wool Blacksheep, which is specially treated for wind and water resistant finishes produced by the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana.

Fantastic composition of duck down, spacious hood and practical pockets provide exceptional comfort and convenience while going out during the cold winter months. It is important to note that the lining of the pockets of this park is made of a special material that has been treated with Polygiene ViralOff® technology, which will have to destroy over 99% of microbes in a period of two hours.

If you want to be updated what new products Woolrich is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

This winter idyll would not be complete without my dear friends from the company Annapurna, which made this perfect 100% cashmere sweater in its new collection of the Aida Barni brand.

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

The turtleneck that complemented my today’s outfit is made of cashmere with a special handmade work that takes hours of work and that is why this sweater is so unique and radiates a special dose of “winter” elegance.

Aida Barni concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in multi-brand stores and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day is woven.

For all Aida Barni fans in Germany, I have discovered two men’s spots where you can find and enjoy in the beauty of Aida Barni incredible knitwear: Braun Hamburg and Mientus retail stores.

If you want to stay tuned and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Of course, as you could see in some previous stories, my old friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years!

We will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog soon! How did you like my outfit today?

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it!

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new strain of Omicron Coronavirus in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind and enjoy the winter magic, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

If you have been fully vaccinated (2 vaccine doses or 3rd booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. The winter holiday season is underway and many have decided to spend the winter in European cities, I would ask you to respect and follow the local laws related to the health care of the local community.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. See you soon, stay tuned!

With Love,
Mr.M

Aida Barni: Sophisticated Expression of a Chic Way of Living…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story on Mr.M blog! Winter is my favorite time of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers” and when we can take out of the wardrobe our favorite knitted pieces that keep us warm during the cold winter temperatures.

I started today’s adventure with old friends, I’m sure you remember the Aida Barni brand, synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere. Last winter we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to paint the cold winter days with bright colors.

If you want to remind yourself of the stories from the previous winter season with Aida Barni, visit this link. I’m sure you will enjoy!

I wanted to make you happy with a new fashion story for a good fashionable start of the week, because December is the sweetest month of the year, when we are looking for gifts for our loved ones. In the previous post, I gave you one of the suggestions – perfume.

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it.

Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines, Annapurna and Aida Barni.

Annapurna uses all the latest production techniques available on the market, from cotton looms to the latest and most advanced knitwear machines of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year. It is important to note that the entire production cycle is performed in Italy, more precisely in the factory of the company located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the province of the same name located in the heart of Italy – Tuscany.

“Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.

Annapurna is a name that evokes everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous.

Aida Barni is an iconic and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market.

In today’s blog post you have the opportunity to see a red turtleneck sweater made of 100% cashmere with special embroidery and work on the front in the form of embroidered lines reminiscent of the idyllic winter in the mountains – beautiful natural glaciers that you have the opportunity to see in every mountain region.

The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

Aida Barni concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.

When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day is woven.

If you want to stay tuned and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

I completed today’s outfit with a Brunello Cucinelli down jacket with fur trim that may be black and at first sight you think that black is not interesting, but the materials which were used for this incredible “piumino” (Italian word for down jacket) will do everything to change your mind.

The unusual combination of material and natural fur on the collar makes this jacket the perfect piece for cold winter days. With this jacket, you will forget whether you went out for just a walk or went to work, because the secret discreet views of passers-by will give the impression that you are on the runway.

During the shooting of this outfit look, a lot of people asked me about the jacket and the turtleneck, they were standing out pieces of this outfit.

Of course, as a big fan of backpacks, this year I put this exceptional piece of the famous French fashion house Louis Vuitton on my wish list and my sister decided to be my Santa Claus this year and give me this beautiful backpack that I am sure I will wear for a long time. I promise that I will do my best to fit it as well as possible with my outfits.

The iconic LV Monogram print and the new model are a great combination which was the right decision during the creation of the new collection of this prestigious French fashion house.

The jeans also came from Italy, a gift from my dear friends from the fashion house MooRER, with whom we will meet again this winter fashion season as well. Simply, some good habits do not need to be changed!

Fashion Diary: Refresh the Gloomy and Cold Winter with some Bright Colors…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story at your favorite place – Mr.M. We are slowly but surely counting down the last days of winter, hoping that spring will bring us some new joys. At this time last year, the world found itself in some absolutely unknown situation when we first heard about the Coronavirus and we could only sit in front of our TV screens and hope to overcome this catastrophe that hit the whole world.

Last year we could only imagine going outside at least for a moment and walking down our favorite street, this year at least we got some new hope that life would soon return to normal with the discovery of vaccines.

This year, I decided to say goodbye to winter with details of bright colors. I believe that red is a favorite color of most people because it is a color that signifies joy and happiness. Scientists believe that colors significantly affect mood swings and can affect people’s mental health.

Some research has shown that the color red evokes strong emotions and encourages an individual to make some new changes in life. I noticed that this is really a true fact, because whenever I decided to change my life habits or make new decisions, the color red was unconsciously a silent observer to my eye and every time I brought some details of the color red into my life.

When I applied for jobs in Germany a couple of years ago, I honestly had no hope that anything would change in my life. Every day, a large number of e-replies were I was rejected by companies, as my CV did not “match” with the required profile of the person who needed the advertised job.

I remember getting over 20 quite cold rejections during one week, but that didn’t discourage me from continuing to compete to find my place under the sun in the promised Deutschland (Germany)!

It was a very ordinary Thursday afternoon, I was walking down the streets of Belgrade and I noticed a kind old lady selling woolen gloves that she made.

The lady radiated positive energy and was very kind, lovely and smiling. On one box that was covered with fine velvet in wonderful navy blue color were on display some gloves. One bright red gloves stood out in particular. They were beautiful, but a little small for my hands, I don’t even know what force “pulled” me to buy them, but I did it!

I was happy for one such little thing, but my day was “saved” with one pair of perfect red gloves. At one point, I felt the vibration of the phone, which means receiving a new e-mail, because I did not want to spoil my “five minutes of happiness”, I decided to leave reading the e-mail for later when I come back to reality.

That day, one red glove brought me immense happiness and a change in my life that I will remember, today these beautiful navy blue Restelli gloves made of the finest leather protected my hands from dandruff caused by the cold wind that dries my hands with incredible speed.

I can say that these navy blue gloves also brought me happiness because they arrived early this morning and with them also some new good news that I will share with you soon when the time is right. It seems that gloves have become symbols of great life changes for me, maybe that’s why I adore these fashion accessories so much.

Life is unpredictable and full of surprises that can be positive or negative. I belong to a group of people who believe in the balance of life, so that life is made up of beautiful and those less beautiful moments that shape us and in that way we mature as individuals with all our virtues and flaws at the same time.

I always have an interesting question that I want to share with you, but I just managed to remind myself and ask you: “Do you believe in miracles?

Do miracles really exist or are they just beliefs? Honestly, I believe in miracles, but I do not rely too much on the factor of happiness. I always try to do everything in my power, and only then can I admit to myself that I did everything that was up to me and let myself wait for the good news. How do you think, what kind of energy do you invoke and radiate, so in the end you will get the results…

My today’s outfit helped me to bring a smile to the faces of passers-by. Some recognized me and finally listened to my advice from the blog to approach and get to know each other. One girl who has been following my blog regularly for almost three years asked me to take a quick photo and also took a selfie with my cheerful red scarf. Looks like it was the star of the day!

In addition to irresistible details like a scarf and a turtleneck sweater, I had another interesting red detail that you had the opportunity to see in previous fashion stories on the blog – the red watch!

This interesting red watch, in addition to faithfully showing the time, is also a real little work of art that can adorn everyone’s hand. My new friend Jaguar is from the special collection “Kingdom“. This watch is handmade in faraway Canada in the main workshop of Ematelier, a brand behind which stands a passionate watch lover, founder Alex Landa.

All “soft” knit fashion details are a gift from my dear friends from Scotland – Johnstons of Elgin. You had the opportunity to see this rollneck sweater on the streets of Berlin in one of the posts at the end of last year, but the scarf is a new detail that represents the famous Scottish print for which this exceptional country is famous.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special post where together we discovered some facts about the red color that most people love. How did you like this combination of mine today, with which I said goodbye to the last days of winter?

I really tried to prepare this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story from faraway Russia!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. Stay tuned!

Best,

Fashion Diary: A Fashionable Moment of Reunion with Nature…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! The holidays are over and it’s time for some work. In previous posts during this pandemic, I have tried to draw your attention and point out the importance of maintaining health and physical fitness during this hard times.

In addition to the use of supplements such as vitamins that we all buy in pharmacies, staying outdoors, especially in the natural environment on green areas or by rivers, can contribute to the improvement of the general health of the organism.

Scientists believe that being outdoors has a beneficial effect on people’s mental health. When you have free time for yourself, take an hour or two of your time and walk by the river or stay in nature.

Of course, in addition to a good mood, for staying outdoors you need warm clothing items that will allow you to spend your stay in nature in the best possible way.

Today, we also will spend some fashionable time with the Italian brand Aida Barni, which makes exceptional pieces of cashmere. This brand has become a symbol of elegance and sophistication due to its perfect sweaters and fashion accessories made of the highest quality wool – cashmere.

Aida Barni uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. If you want to be up to date and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

If by any chance you missed previous posts or want to be reminded of some details, you can read the posts at the following links. Tips for maintaining your favorite pieces of cashmere – link. In case you want to find out more information about the Aida Barni and Annapurna brands, you can read the story of these brands at this link.

In addition to warm sweaters, during the winter we all hang out with jackets or shearling jackets, depending on personal preferences. This time I decided to complete my outfit with the leather shearling jacket that I have had in my wardrobe for years, and every time I see it in the closet, I admire how some things just don’t change over time.

Of course, as you could see in one of the previous outfit posts, my new friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual stylish masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and a love for lasting masterpieces!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with a tradition and history full of love and patience that have no price.

Fashion trends vary depending on the season and weather conditions. Winter fashion trends are simple and the most important thing is to “respect” the rule that the most important thing is to be “layered dressed” due to the low temperatures that prevail during the winter period.

When it comes to winter fashion outfits, brown, navy blue and lighter neutral shades predominate in my wardrobe, with which I welcome cold winter days.

Today’s post contains the word nature in its title, and do we know what that term really means? Nature is, in the broadest sense, the equivalent of the natural world, the physical universe, the material world, or the material universe.

Nature as a term refers to the phenomenon of the physical world, as well as to life in general. This term usually does not include manufactured objects, nor human interaction, unless it qualifies as such, such as “human nature”. The notion of nature and the natural is also the opposite of the notion of the supernatural.

Today, in the everyday use of the word “nature”, geology is often referred to as the term wilderness. Nature can also define the general realm of various types of plants and animals, and in some cases the processes associated with inanimate objects – the way certain types of things exist such as the time and geology of the Earth, and the matter and energy of which all things are made.

Nature often means “natural environment” or wilderness made up of wild animals, rocks, forests, beaches and in general all things that have not been significantly altered by human intervention or those that last despite human interaction.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this third fashion story in 2021. How did you like this outfit of mine today? I hope that in addition to the definition of nature, you learned something new from my post today.

I really tried to prepare this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story!

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

Aida Barni: Italian Sophisticated Dreams are made of cashmere…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! At the very beginning, I would like to wish you all the best! Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. I hope that all your wishes will come true and that we will stay healthy and happy together with the hope that the new year will bring some new positive things that make us all satisfied.

During this winter season on my blog you had the opportunity to meet some new, interesting fashion brands that deserve to be noticed for their exceptional quality and impressive design.

In the previous months, I presented on my blog a various fashion labels from Italy, such as the fashion house MooRER from romantic Verona and a specialized workshop for making leather gloves Restelli from the Italian capital of fashion – Milan.

Do you know what Annapurna means? Have you ever heard for this word? Annapurna is a name that evokes extraordinary landscapes and in particular, a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 metres where goats grow their thick protective fleece hiding the soft, warm “duvet” that has made them so famous.

Annapurna is also represent an imaginative and fascinating name for a company that produces high quality knitwear made of the finest cashmere. A name of promise then, a symbol of a target to achieve for a woman – Ms. Aida Barni, who decided to enter the business world at the end of the seventies at the top of a difficult sector of the market.

Today is a special day for me because the brand Aida Barni joins to my small fashion network called Mr.M. The Aida Barni brand is synonymous with the luxury and quality of exclusive cashmere yarn, a material that has fascinated all fashion lovers for centuries.

Many years of experience and knowledge about the origin and processing of yarn have enabled the Aida Barni brand to become one of the leading brands of top knits in the fashion world. Aida Barni, an Italian famous designer, has published a book with numerous illustrations that aims to promote her unique brand and cashmere, one of the most precious natural materials in the world.

The Aida Barni brand operates under the company name of the Annapurna fashion group, which was founded in 1978. The Annapurna group has become one of the most famous Italian and world leading manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear. The Annapurna Spa fashion group consists of the Annapurna and Aida Barni brands.

Aida Barni brand uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. The current production capacity of Aida Barni and Annapurna brands are about 120,000 pieces per year, which you have to admit is impressive. The entire production process takes place in Italy, more precisely in the company’s headquarters in the Italian city of Prato.

If you want to be up to date and find out all the news about new collections that Aida Barni is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

These beautiful gloves which you have opportunity to see in today’s post have arrived from Italy, made in a great combination of cashmere and suede leather, which were made with great love in a family specialized workshop for making gloves. Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art.

Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Ms. Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and love for beautiful masterpieces that last!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with a tradition and history full of love and patience that have no price.

Beloved Ématelier masterpiece Jaguar from the limited collection “Kingdom” you previously have seen in my last blog post, which, in addition showing the right time, is also a real little work of art that adorns the hand. I think that this Ématelier Jaguar watch fit perfectly with the rest of this outfit and that this incredible hand-painted dial brought a bit of cheerful colors to this cold winter day.

If you want to get better acquainted with this brand, read the story of this unusual kingdom where time and creativity know no boundaries – link.

Of course, as I mentioned at the very beginning of this post, I founded my small and chosen Italian company with the Italian brand MooRER who introduced me to my new friend Morris.

I have to be honest and admit that you’ve seen Morris more than me, but that was justified because this is an exceptional model of jacket that can be worn for a long time because this is a timeless classic model.

OUTFIT

Jacket: MooRER

Sweater: Aida Barni

Watch: Ématelier

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Shoes: Cesare Paciotti

I advise you to have on mind my friendly advice due to the current aggravation of the health situation in almost all European countries and countries around the world as well. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

I take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just another bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this first fashion story in 2021. How did you like this outfit which I showed you today? I really tried to prepare this Italian style outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story!

Fashion Diary: December, the month of sharing happiness and joy with others…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! With this post, I am officially opening the last month of this 2020 and I have prepared more interesting stories for you! Right at the beginning of this post, to make you happy, since I regularly receive your questions for travel letters, I decided to publish two letters from Germany this month. I believe that this has been an extremely difficult year for all of us and that we can hardly wait to turn some new pages in our diaries of life.

December is a symbol of happiness and joy because that period is reserved for the preparation for the celebration of holidays and with an open heart, we welcome the new year and secretly hope that some of our wishes will come true.

In today’s post, I present Mr. Morris to you again, he has now become a part of the blog and a living being, since you have seen him maybe more than me this season, and that is why he deserves an honorable place. I am glad that the products of the Italian company MooRER have found their way to your heart and that their fashion details warm you and your loved ones during these cold months!

This winter season, I tried to inspire you and show you an elegant jacket like Morris in different editions. We went from elegant combinations with classic trousers of various shades to those clothing combinations that include jeans that are a symbol for a little more casual and relaxed everyday occasions.

MooRER updated its winter collection offer a few weeks ago and I am sure you will find some of your favorite pieces that will make this winter more beautfiul!

Of course, as you could see in one of the previous stories, my new friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

I hope that this last month of the year will bring a lot of joy and hope and a smile back to your face. We all need that little bit of luck, because after this health crisis that has hit the whole world, we have nothing left but to hope that 2021 will be better.

Mankind has undergone various changes in its long history and the world has changed every time, but hope was the only support that helped people get out of the mental crisis. It is better for each of us to have a “straw of salvation” in which we can believe. Our ancestors survived various natural disasters and wars, so we will be able to get through this period as well!

It’s time to move on to a slightly happier and more interesting topic! I believe that it is interesting for all of you when some little things brighten and make your day complete. This crisis has affected many sectors and small artisan companies that are struggling to survive in the relentless market are suffering the most.

You probably remember these gloves, I wore them in one of the previous posts with a raincoat. Today I decided to show you how these beautiful dark brown Restelli suede peccary leather gloves fit perfectly with these gentle brown earth tones.

This model of gloves, with its classic design, is a timeless piece that can last you for years. Once you buy beautifully designed and quality leather gloves, believe me, forget about buying new ones.

Due to my problem with extremely dry skin on my hands, although I use creams and various lotions, I need to keep them warm and that is why I always have a collection of carefully selected gloves that help me keep warm and prevent cracking of the skin on my hands which can result in painful wounds.

If by any chance any of you know any natural products to solve my problem with dry skin on my hands I would love to hear your suggestions. Several times you have been of great help to me with recommendations when I needed natural remedies for facial skin and back pain. Who knows, maybe some of your advice will help me again!

OUTFIT

Jacket: MooRER

The Turtleneck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Boots: Burberry

I advise you that due to the difficult current situation in almost all European countries, if you want to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and create crowds.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, and you can do that by walking the city in the open air every day, using the traffic-free streets. Of course you can walk through the park and other types of green areas or along the promenades along the rivers, but stick to the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

Since I make all photos outdoors and keep the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I did not need to wear a mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so that I can carry them around the city.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special story. How did you like this outfit of mine today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with some new story!

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. Stay tuned!

Fashion Diary: November, the month of fashion and new ideas…

My dear fashionistas welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope you are well, healthy and safe surrounded by loved ones. This year has certainly marked our lives and we will surely remember it after the pandemic and the world crisis. I don’t think there is an industry that hasn’t felt some kind of crisis, so it is in the fashion industry, which is a big challenge for fashion brands and designers as well.

During the pandemic, the fashion industry makes great efforts to maintain a perfect balance of production and concentration of purchasing power. The current volume of production may have been reduced, but believe me, the love for fashion has remained absolutely has not changed at all.

How will I remember Autumn – Winter 2020? Honestly, I am happiest that, thank God, I am healthy and that I had the opportunity to share my love for fashion with my readers. I regularly receive emails and messages on social networks from my dear readers with similar question, and that is: “When will your new travelogues start?”.

I really can’t honestly give you the answer to that question because I really don’t know how the health situation will unfold and how it will affect travel in the future. Believe me, that famous thought passes through my mind at least once every day: “When will everything return to the old like before as used to be?”. It is no longer a problem with borders and the fact that there is no travel, but this “world quarantine” and constant changes in the law have begun to affect people’s mental health.

When I wonder why I am not able to go somewhere, I sincerely thank God after a few seconds that I am healthy and that I have the opportunity to rest and relax with my family in one place. Travel is a wonderful thing and for me it will always be a kind of non-formal education, but health and family will always be in the first place for me and it is something that has no price.

In today’s post, we’re hanging out again with my favorite fashion piece this season, I believe you’ve all remembered his name so far – Morris. To be honest, I don’t know which fashion piece I liked and repeated on the blog during one season, but with this jacket it’s different.

If you remember that special story of mine from the first fashion post about the Italian brand from Verona, the MooRER brand will remember how I wrote that this jacket fulfilled my unfulfilled dreams from Prague from a couple of years ago. Maybe that’s exactly why I’ve worn this jacket so many times, but I promise I’ll change soon! Thank you for your understanding! ?

MooRER is an Italian brand that won my heart in a short time and I am glad that we managed to find each other during this pandemic and make a wonderful and interesting collaboration.

Another Italian brand that you had the opportunity to meet last week on my blog, which is known for handmade real small leather art masterpieces, is the Restelli Guanti gloves factory.

This week, I present you another model of gloves from this interesting family brand that has passed on its love for gloves and share for generations. I extremely appreciate and respect brands with this tradition that have survived on the market for years, and I am always glad when I manage to help them at least a little, especially in these difficult times.

In the fashion world, every piece has its own unique story, which really provides a special charm. These gloves are made of a perfect combination of cashmere and soft deerskin. Ideal for any fashion combination, whether you are getting ready for work or a business meeting or you may have decided to spend a day in a relaxed walk, these gloves are ideal for the cold days that follow us during autumn and winter.

You haven’t been able to see the roll neck sweater and jeans on the blog so far because I jealously kept it for colder days and finally put on my new refined pieces of wool and cashmere with which these lower temperatures passed me more easily than in previous years.

The roll neck sweater you can see in today’s post came to my wardrobe from faraway Scotland made by the skilled hands of a team from the Johnstons of Elgin brand who made it true for me to spend this winter in trend and to spend my days in Berlin comfortably, even with an open jacket.

Believe me, since I always have problems with regulating my body temperature, I have been buttoned up to my throat in the winter for years, and I always have a feeling of cold, while other people can only wear a sweater, I will always have a jacket over. This year I have to admit I gave up a bit so I walked around with an open jacket, which may be a small step for humanity, but too big not to say a giant step for one Marko!

OUTFIT

The outfit is made up of products from the new Johnstons of Elgin and MooRER collection for autumn-winter 2020/21. In the list below you can find links for each product from today’s post.

News for all of you, since I regularly get questions, do I have a discount code, I asked Johnstons of Elgin and they came out with my own personal code “MT10” you have a special 10% discount on the entire offer of Johnstons of Elgin products. You get a discount, I don’t have any kind of commission, I tried to do that for all my readers to get a discount on the entire collection of this Scottish brand and to enjoy the beauty of wool and cashmere this season.

Jacket: MooRER

Roll Neck Sweater: Johnstons of Elgin

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Sneakers: MooRER

MooRER and Johnstons of Elgin are brands that try to make each piece with great care and you can really feel it when you worn their products. Their models are extremely comfortable, practical and wearable for any occasion, whether it is the clothes you need for every day and work, up to those slightly more formal occasions.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this situation one day just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I stick to the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear masks, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the Autumn charm of Berlin. How did you like this outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story from Germany!

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. See you soon with another interesting story!

From Berlin with Love,

Fashion Diaries: The Secret lies in finding the right accessories…

Dear my fashionistas, good morning and welcome to my blog. Difficult times have come and instead of counting down to the holidays that are getting closer to us, we live in fear that we will be healthy the next day. At the very beginning of the post I would draw your attention to be careful and to look out for others. I think that each of us has a conscience, and if you feel bad, stay at home and let’s hope that this health catastrophe will pass soon and that we will all see the light at the end of the tunnel together.

Today, this cold November Tuesday, I am sharing with you another fashion story from the streets of Berlin. November is sometimes really the last month of the year when we can take advantage of the weather and walk some of our favorite fashion pieces that occupy a special place in our closets. In my case, it would certainly be – a Trench Coat!

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see a navy blue trench coat, but today I will show you a honey-colored trench coat, which is one of the most famous and best-selling colours of the fashion house Burberry.

I remember when I got my first Burberry coat which I still keep today, but if someone had told me I would get a similar coat few years later, I really couldn’t believe it.

In addition to this favorite piece of mine that has refreshed my fall wardrobe for this and next seasons to come, I am also looking forward to some new unexpected details that have enriched my outfit today.

The watch is known as the best fashion accessory for every man. There is a quote: “Show me what kind of watch you wear and I’ll tell you who you are.” Every man determines his style, and fashion accessories are the ones that determine the direction in which that style will develop.

A wristwatch is much more than just a time indicator. A watch is a piece of art that adorns the hand of every man and woman and depicts the personality of the person wearing it. When buying a watch, the most important thing is to forget about trends and find yourself and stay consistent with yourself and your style.

Today I decided to show you a new watch in my collection – Epos Originale 3420 SK – an elegant automatic skeleton watch in an extremely thin edition.

The Epos company was founded in 1925 when Mr. James Aubert founded his own watch factory “James Aubert SA” in Vallée de Joux, a valley in the Jura Mountains that many consider to be the “cradle” of mechanical watches and is located in the Swiss canton of Vaud (Waadt).

Mr. Aubert was a passionate mechanical watch engineer, who dedicated his life to the development of new watch mechanisms. He was a top master of his craft and spent most of his efforts focusing on the technical development of chronographs and minute tutors.

He passed on his true love for watches and his knowledge to his son-in-law, Jean Filion, who then became the leading manufacturer of EPOS watches for many years. Mr. Filion has continued the tradition and made great strides in the innovations that have made this brand so unique in the market.

In the early 1980s, the success story of the traditional Swiss watch stagnated. New quartz technology has radically changed the true face of the watch industry. There were almost no brands that wanted to produce classic mechanical watches, with the exception of a few luxury watch brands.

Peter Hofer, a longtime expert in Swiss watch production, was one of the few who still believed in the future of mechanical watches. Believing in this vision, his wife Erna, as the biggest support, decided to found their own company in 1983: Montres EPOS SA.

Their only property was exclusively a passion for mechanical watches and all the necessary technical knowledge to create mechanical masterpieces.

Personal contacts with key people in the Swiss watch industry, as well as extensive knowledge of the global watch market, have enabled Peter Hofer to successfully develop his own brand. From the very beginning, Hofer was supported by Jean Fillon, who was the driving force behind many interesting EPOS innovations.

During 20 years of his work, Hofer has remained true to his vision, developing stunning collections that include fascinating mechanisms in collaboration with Mr. Fillon.

In the early 2000s, Peter Hofer sought successors who shared his indescribable passion for mechanical watches.

New business partners in EPOS are the Chonge-Forster family, a family with deep roots in the Swiss watch industry: Ursula Forster, who became the new president of the company, comes from a family with a long and rich tradition in the production of Swiss watches. Her husband, Tamdy, who has taken over as CEO, has been working in the top positions in the Swiss watch industry for many years.

Together, they took over the company from Mr. Peter Hofer in 2002 and have since developed the EPOS brand, expanding their product portfolio and expanding internationally. Building on the long legacy and knowledge selflessly invested in the company, they have always focused on creating highly sophisticated mechanical masterpieces at affordable prices, remaining true to the company’s slogan: Art in the watchmaking world.

After this interesting story about time and tradition in Switzerland, where time is highly valued, we move briefly to the most famous cradle of fashion – Italy.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide his joy when he smells the new Italian skin. Today I present to you the most famous workshop that creates real small leather masterpieces. Welcome to the Restelli workshop where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet.

Now let’s all imagine this picture together: “Milan, 1920 and a glove shop near the Duomo”. At the same time, they made personalized gloves in according to the wishes and tastes of each customer.

At that time, gloves were a symbol of elegance and sophistication, an irreplaceable fashion accessory for all occasions. Piero Restelli soon realized that his passion, handwork with the best and most precious types of leather and deep respect for craft production were just the beginning of a long successful journey that would reshape the glove industry.

The factory was founded with its own leather reserves, which played a very important role in the leather processing process, over time production began to increase. The success of this small family company goes further and takes us to the early 50s when Piero Restelli Jr. and his wife, young and determined, presented their special collection of sportswear…

Soon, on the streets of Milan and throughout Italy, waterproof gloves made of the highest quality peccary leather covered with warm opossum fur became a symbol of the Italian “Jet Set” of high society and Restelli became a world-famous brand.

Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and love for beautiful masterpieces that last!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with a tradition and history full of love and patience that have no price.

I believe that today we have all recognized something beautiful in these stories, and that is respect for and preservation of tradition, following innovations in step with the times and dedication that has no price.

Work, effort and discipline are the three basic things that are needed to maintain in any business. Of course, there are also those moments when happiness, belief in one’s work and dedication play an important role.

The COVID-19 health situation brought difficulties to everyone, the world stopped and just started to develop and return to normal, but the new wave that started in Europe during October 2020 resulted in another wave that affects the development and survival of many industries.

In Germany, the economy began to recover, but with this renewed “quarantine” many people lost their jobs. Some world experts believe that the damage caused by the Corona virus will be significantly greater because many people have lost their jobs and many companies have closed their doors. Do you know how many families were left without income?

Picard, a brand that you have had the opportunity to see on my blog for years, are the famous leather backpacks that kept me company on my travels around the world. My new Picard buddy, we can call him Relaxed We decided to keep each other company on the streets of Berlin while we wait for this health situation to calm down and wait for better days to continue our traveling adventures.

Picard Relaxed is great for every day because it is big enough that I can take everything I need to do my daily duties around the city. The big advantage is the new special lining material that prevents the spread of radiation so you can carry various types of electronic devices without fear that some of the devices will affect your credit card or mobile phone.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

The Roll Neck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Brunello Cucinelli

Of course, I also completed this outfit with the perfect brown MooRER sneakers that you had the opportunity to see in previous posts of this fashion season. I can’t wait to show you other models of MooRER sneakers so you don’t criticize me for having only one pair to wear this season.

My problem sometimes is that I get attached to some things and I am ready to wear them a couple of times in a row. This is exactly what happened with the things of the fashion house MooRER, and from a lot of things which I got, I became attached to brown pieces for now, trying to move to another world of colors.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this as just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I respected all the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the dedication, tradition, love and patience. How did you like this honey – golden – brown outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new fashion story from Germany!

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. Stay tuned!

From Berlin with Love,
Mr.M

British elegance and Italian style on the streets of Berlin

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? I sincerely hope that you are well and that you are protected from this health catastrophe that started a new winter “wave”. All over Europe, the situation is alarming and we need to take care of ourselves and our loved ones.

Each of us must continue to work, but we must do our best to adjust our work and daily life in accordance with the current health situation. Since I have to do my job, I try to take pictures at a time when there are not many people on the streets and to avoid indoors for taking photos.

I appeal once again that it is necessary to take new precautionary measures and try to stay healthy and make our environment a better place. In previous posts, you had the opportunity to see me in a winter jacket, many of you sent me numerous messages asking where is my famous Mr.M symbol, a fashion piece without which autumn cannot pass on Mr.M’s blog – the trench coat.

I will dedicate the first November fashion story to my favorite fashion piece by which I became recognizable. The trenchcoat is a piece of clothing that has become a legendary fashion piece of the wardrobe of women and men around the world. The famous Burberry double-breasted coats are made of gabardine. Gabardine is a fine fabric made of combed wool or cotton. Woolen fabric is used for coats, suits and women’s dresses, while cotton is used to make light dresses and cotton is lined with rubber which is used to make raincoats.

Burberry trench coats have an insulated lining, classic or raglan sleeves. Classic versions of the Burberry trench coat can be found in different lengths, from just above the joints (the longest version) to above the middle of the thigh (the shortest). These coats were originally a garment for army officers, the coat model itself was developed before the war, but during the war it was adapted for use in the trenches of the First World War, after which they got their name – Trench Coat!

Traditionally, double-breasted trench coats are buttoned with 10 front buttons and have wide lapels, a “storm” flap and pockets that close with the buttons. Each double-breasted trench coat has a belt around the waist, as well as belts around the joints that can also be fastened. Have you ever wondered why coats have straps on the sleeves above the wrist?

During the war, these belts were practical to keep water from flowing through the forearm when officers used binoculars during the rain. The trench coat often has “shoulder straps” that close and these were functional characteristics in a military context. The traditional color of the coat was “khaki”, a light shade of yellow-brown. Today, newer versions come in many interesting colors.

Trenches remained in trend for decades after the First and Second World Wars. Their original role as a striking part of a military officer’s uniform provided the coat with a new, more elegant business note, although many prefer to tie a belt instead of using a buckle to project a more casual look than a strict military uniform.

In the 1960s, intellectuals wore trench coats over black roll neck sweaters, while some people wore coats as fashion details, as an elegant alternative to jackets.

Double-breasted trenches and coats have become an integral part of our everyday life and there really is no person in the world who does not have a double-breasted trench or coat in the wardrobe, regardless of the brand, a double breasted coat is a iconic fashion piece that never goes out of fashion.

My love for coats is due to my grandfather and father, who were great collectors of trenches and coats as well. My grandfather and father saved a part of their fashion paradise for me as well, and my father gave me my first Burberry trench coat almost 13 years ago, which I still jealously guard and wear today.

These are some of our family rituals, so we passed on our “male” love for coats to our dear ladies in the family. My mother as one of them was not a fan of this piece in the beginning, but with our influence, these fashion treats were also found in her wardrobe.

I have noticed that many people confuse the terms “trench coat” and “coat”. The trench coat is “thinner” and it is worn in the transitional seasons – spring and autumn, when we need protection from unexpected rain and windy weather, and we do not want to wear some heavy and warmer pieces.

A coat is a slightly more “serious” fashion piece for winter time, made of a thicker material, most often wool, cashmere or a combination of these two materials. There are other more exotic materials, but they are less often used due to the high costs of making and processing these materials, the best example is Vicuna shiny llama hair, which is exceptional and rare, but very expensive. A sweater made of Vicuna costs several thousand euros…

When we talk about wool, their fibers consist of several layers. Wool retains heat well and is often used to make sweaters and comfortable winter clothes such as coats, jackets, scarves and gloves. What all belongs to the wool fiber family? These are cashmere, angora, merino wool, lamb wool and mohair.

In today’s post, I wanted to show you an everyday, casual and relaxed fashion combination where one elegant piece, such as a trench coat, can be combined with jeans and sneakers. Also, this time I took the opportunity to show you a red roll neck sweater from my friends from Scotland, Johnstons of Elgin, which you saw in a more elegant edition in one of the previous posts.

Navy – red combination is always refreshing and proved to be the best fashion tandem where we have navy blue, which is a symbol of elegance, while red rejuvenates and refreshes a person. Red indicates a new beginning and brings a certain dose of joy.
