How can I feel down and blue when I’m wearing my smart blue leather? Even on my lowest days, slipping into a leather suit will always bring a smile to my face.
This particular ensemble was built around a pair of gloves that I found hiding at the bottom of one of my many glove drawers. They are a beautiful shade of royal blue with brass buckle detailing on the cuff and have been in my collection for quite a while now. As can be the case when you own a vast collection of something, when I get new items, I somehow forget about the old ones.
Perhaps unsurprisingly I had some footwear that matched the glove colour to perfection. In this case, they were a pair of dark blue leather Converse high-tops, of which I have now managed to amass quite a selection in most colours of the rainbow, both low- and high-top, but that’s a whole other post…
I also had a shirt of the same colour, so that seemed like an obvious choice – and you can’t have a shirt without a tie. This particular shirt has a thin, delicate collar, so it needs a skinny tie otherwise I have to wear it collar up like they did in the Regency era. Not really the look I was going for! As I don’t have a lot of skinny linen ties, I was forced (not against my will) to look at my collection of leather ties, and lo-and-behold, I found one in a complimentary light grey-blue leather.
It also seemed like the perfect opportunity to wear my light blue linen blazer. I do have a navy blue leather one, but it just didn’t sit quite right with the shirt and the colours clashed. Also this particular jacket is a slightly more tailored fit, which worked well with the outfit so far.
The only detail left to figure out was the bottom half. I didn’t want anything too long on the leg to hide the trainers. Also I wanted something that had some gold detail to match the gold detail on the gloves. The perfect pair were these hipsters by Comanchi with their exposed button fly.
