Each month I collate a few chosen looks from the previous month and put them into a post. Here is the July edition.
The term 'genuine leather' can be quite confusing to anyone who is unfamiliar with the leather grading system, as it does not really give any insight into exactly what sort of leather this 'genuine' stuff is or whether it is of any quality. All it really signifies is that it is not faux leather. Today we will clear up the fog surrounding this.
There is a big wave of nostalgia for retro style digital watches at the moment. The Casio lineup has been faring very well in this wave with two of its retro models the F91-W and A158 reappearing on wrists everywhere thanks to their nostalgic charm and sub-$40 price tag. If you are willing to bump that up to between $65 and $80, you can go one level up and get a feature-packed watch that looks great and has all the bells and whistles: the Casio A500 range.

The details can be just as instrumental in making a suit or jacket look great as the cut and fit; with unflattering details, it becomes harder to match the jacket with accessories and shoes. We have covered lapel and fronting, as well as the jacket construction. Now that you have the biggest parts in check, it is time to discuss the details! In this section of the guide we will cover rear vents, pockets, armholes and sleeve buttons.
Today I want to share a great documentary I have watched recently. It is produced by Sartorial Talks (the YouTube channel of the Parisian Gentleman blog). The channel consistently delivers engaging, high quality content and I thoroughly enjoyed this piece in particular; full of insights, history and elegant charm.
Dan Henry are a brand that have been on my radar for a little while with their visually pleasing watches that are reputed among fellow horology heads for being built and finished to a high standard. The latter is important when it comes to microbrands these days, as many are making a visually pleasing piece but a high quality build and good movement are not as common. Recently, DH released the 1962; as soon as I saw the panda dial option I knew one would be entering my collection.
