Wisdom of Romans

January 27, 2017

Blazers. I love’em. Since my very childhood I knew that one day there would be so many blazers in my wardrobe, that I’d even have one, which I would only use after a bath – my special bath blazer. Seriously, instead of a towel, I’d wear a cool jacket made of towelling. Wouldn’t that be great? Oh, silly dreams!..

Anyway, I’ve grown a bit since my childhood. Now I know three things for sure.

First of all, you cannot have a cool blazer made out of towelling. The rumour is that every brave person, who had tried to make it, was viciously murdered by the evil towel corporations. Only Romans could pull that trick off for some time, but hey, where are they now?! Extinct!

The second thing is to never smile to the camera. Otherwise everyone would think you are a softy. The best way to get a proper look for a modelling shoot is to think about something gross, sad and cute at the same time. My pick is roadkill. Always helps. Stick with that.

And the last one. This is the most important thing of all. Okay, you ready?.. Make sure that you smell nice.

Now, if you think that is no connection between these three things and the blazers, well, you are right. There is none. That’s how I roll. No logic whatsoever.

Know how to appear in public in a striking manner.


Hand-sewn “working” button holes is one of the indicators of a high level of craftsmanship.


A dimple on your tie is something you’d really have learn to make on some stage. I don’t why… But all the cool dudes are totally doing that!..


Originally, peak lapels were only used on double-breasted blazers. But we live in times of uncertainty, so no one gives a damn…


I like double cuff shirts. They are both beautiful and unnecessary. Just like the most of stuff in our live.

And here’s a picture of me, which doesn’t show you anything useful, just my confused face.
