Dark shirt

I’ve been into dark shirts mode for last several years…doesn’t matter what season I’m in…

1d

This is C-POST 7 in navy poplin with self lining (means

A very practical choice for in-between seasons and chilly days.

Really works great as in-between shirts and jackets…..worn over a shirt or knit, or great slipping choice in winter layers…as it was originally designed to be.

Royal Traveler 2014 FW

RT is shifting…

1r

towards a direction.

2r

Which is subtle….yet noticeable.

3r

Originally a vest meant to be worn over anything…

based on my fun experiments with vintage hunting vests…

practically worn over anything…. T-shirt, shirt, knits, denim jackets, flight jackets, work jackets, tweed jackets, various coats……..

4r

So the RT’s fit pattern was made accordingly…

5r

Yet now, I’m more interested in wearing RT like a conventional vest….

which is usually worn under jacket.

The fit is starting to be adjusted accordingly from this season.

P.S.

A great sunset in Tokyo!

psr

Light Deco

I found out that I’ve been into Deco stuff again recently…

1d

This time, I’m feeling like lighter Deco…or Deco – inspired kinda…

Somewhat more casual….more versatile….
