Sergei Sviatchenko/Spring/Summer 11 + Etiquette for the Modern Classicist

1) Slim cut suits with short cut trousers go along way

Buy a pair of wingtips and loafers

The Beatles sir, listen to them - and do so regularly


Owning at least 3 oxfords shirts has never done a man any harm

Be a gentleman towards women

Own several ties - n.b. Four-in-hand knots only - mix things up with a bow tie


Watch all movies by Andrei Tarkovsky. Re-watch them.

Always consider a well-fitting navy blazer with gold buttons.

Serge Gainsberg looked smarter in a trench coat and so do you.

Own a classic cashmere v-neck and a crew-neck pull-over.

Khaki classic chinos are as essential as they are basic.
Choose your pair meticulously.

Cherish a good relationshio with your parents.


Sometimes looking at a nice black and white photo of your grandfather
as a young man wearing his Sunday-suit can learn you more about style
than reading 20 fashion magazines.


A watch - you do own one do you? should be flat, vintage and have a leather band.


Be punctual.

Ray-Ban sunglasses matter.


Stay current.


Trust the classics.
