Basic matter - I have always been interested with the classics – things that don’t go away and are based on functionality as much as fit and aesthetics and I’d  say it extends to how I feel about the music I listen to and the decors I buy for my flat.
For someone in my profession, it is just impossible to dress badly and with the amount of daily client and internal meetings, site visits, socials and last minute invites to launches, I just can’t! Honestly, it can get pretty tiring.
Even despite having the luxury of pulling out my favorite trousers and dress shirt all crisp and ironed from my make believe Narnia, the thought of repeating an outfit within the same week is like stabbing yourself with a Swiss knife. And for others who end up ironing their own clothes in the morning, wasting precious minutes, would you rather enjoy a nice cup of newly pressed coffee than suffer, trying to flatten every crease?
Fast forward – I’d rather not! We’d rather NOT!
Thought bubble – how about non-iron trousers for each day of your work week? 
You got all days covered! 
Bonobos, a men’s apparel brand focused on better-fitting clothes and a better-shopping experience, recently launched their Weekday Warrior Collection, featuring iron-free, embroidered pants in 12 colors. Yes, 12 colors from your standard navy to edgy burgs (burgundy).
Made of premium cotton, each trousers are precisely cut, conforming to the natural shape of your waist, minus the extra saggy fabric which usually  gives that unsightly mangina (for the lack of a better word).
Connect with Bonobos on Instagram and Facebook and get yourself a pair!
They fit like a charm which also makes it perfect for weekends. Pair it with your favorite blazer or pique shirt and you’re good to go.

You’d rather get noticed for all the right reasons, right?

After hitting 9 holes and spending a couple of hours in the driving range over the holidays, I’m confident I never lost my swing even after years of inactivity in the fairway.

Lately, I have noticed a lot of golfers no longer dress the part, favoring more on loose frumpy shirts,  shapeless shorts, jeans and basketball shoes – horribly dowdy!
Got my groove back with 200 yards and a perfect tan
Being a classicist myself minus the old tartan-wool cap, I am one of those who prefer hitting the fairways looking good in lightweight cotton pique shirts in lime, pink or white paired with either tartan trousers or shorts that are cut just right, not too tight or baggy – and oh, nothing that would seem out of place in the country club or Saturday brunch.
Bringing back what was once the most stylish game in the world, thankfully, brands like FootJoy, have created functional and fashion-forward golf apparel perfect for the younger and hipper generation of golfers.
Using the best athletic material without sacrificing style, maximum protection and comfort, FootJoy equals fashion-meets-function golf-wear. Even  FJ’s sport golf shoe is beyond words – even more comfortable than your favorite pair of espadrilles.
Starting the year right, online golf apparel specialist, Function18, just launched their GREAT FOOTJOY SALE (Silent scream) – everything from jackets, coats and waterproof trousers. I have my basket ready and fingers itching to click, BUY! You should have yours ready too.
And oh, just like the sport, FootJoy is all about accuracy and yes, they’ve nailed it to a tee.  Time to hit your driver like a top PGA tour player!
