Suit Wars Vol. I: Tartan


Welcome to Suit Wars, volume I. This is a two part post, showcasing two beautiful suits I recently bought, starting with this tartan beauty. The reason this is a war is because I only had the intention of buying one, however the choice was beyond difficult to make so I did what every reasonable person does in these situations, I bought both. Maybe you can help me out by telling me which one you like more!

I had never before come around to buying a suit, probably because I thought the occasions I could wear them to were limited to interviews and funerals formal, awkward gatherings. Bumping into the new Zara collection last week I realised how incredibly wrong I had been, ditching them all this time. Suits are so much fun! This one in particular, with the ankle length pants and leather trimmings on the edges of the pockets gives an entirely different meaning to the word tartan, and screams for a little pattern mixing, which is one of my fav things to do! The ensemble is completed by a handmade leather croco effect messenger by The Code, a beautiful pass-partout addition to my bag collection. 

Tune in for Suit Wars Vol. II!
