Love means nothing in tennis, but it's everything in life

Hi all!

Happy St. Valentine! You see, now I'm starting to post more often, and I hope to post at least once or twice a week. Let's see how it goes ;)

As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of the day of St. Valentine. Not because I do not like love, do not get me wrong. It is since I think it should be shown every day. Show love and appreciation to all your loved ones and surprise them with daily surprises when they least expect them.

Now I present my outfit for the day. As you can see I was inspired by one of the most important colors this season, the maroon and Gucci looks for this spring / summer.









The skinny suit, the loafers and thing dottie tie are in that color, I've outfitted with chocolate colored gloves, a tan folio bag (for more information, click here) and a belt of the same color, without forgetting the Pocket Square and silver tie-pin.

Hope you like,

See you soon,

Holdall & Co, a true vintage inspiration

Hi everyone,

 Today I have the pleasure to present a true work of art. The folio by Holdall & Co.

     "Holdall & Co is a designer of leather accessories 'Made in England'. Their first product is an under-arm bag foil which is made ​​by highly skilled case English makers who have decades of experience using the highest quality top grain leather.

     The designer told me she has been collecting vintage bags, Especially ones 'made in England' for quiet a few years now Which inspired her to design something That would Reflect the same values​​. She Decided to start Holdall & Co Because She Wanted to create a stylish yet durable product will stand the test That of time and age nicely with use the way her vintage pieces have.



The folios are a 30's inspired design minimalistically Which is timeless yet modern, with a useful newspaper / umbrella loop on the back for easy use when on the go. Each sheet is made ​​to exacting standards with hand stitched corners and polished edges Inglés That case makers are renowned for, making each a unique piece of art. 

 I highly recommend to have a look to her website

Also you can follow her @ Also holdallandco & / holdallco
When I received the folio, I noticed the little vintage touches like the little strap that wrapped the package. After knowing the brand, its ethos and vision I decided to create an outfit to go beautifully with the bag.



I opted for a real vintage jacket from the 40s from the British Army, taupe trousers, tan brogues and a red tie to make the outfit to look a bit more formal.
