Inspiration (6 of 10 in no particular order)
I’ve been a longtime follower of the Friday Inspiration (Fredagsinspiration) feature on manolo.se which are outfits put together by the various contributing editors . I noticed that I was really drawn to some of the outfit much more than others. When I looked deeper, I noticed that all of them were put together by some guy called Olof Nithenius and he has since become a good friend.
Today’s inspiration comes from my friend @olof1982 who is another guy that looks great is suits or casualwear. From my own experience, there’s a framework to wearing a suit but it is wide open when it comes to the casual side of things. Hesuccessfully navigates these sartorial waters just like Steve Zissou and has been a great supporter to others as well. Looking through his feed, you can see the various ‘shout outs’ he has given to people whose style he likes. I have had the pleasure and honour of being mentioned as well.
After all my casualwear, I decided to take some inspiration from one of Olof’s more tailored looks - a beautiful green jacket with a grey tie. I’ve taken the liberty of imagining the kind of shoes he would wear and came up with my favourite dress shoes which kind of symbolises his style - comfortable and beautiful at the same time.
Olof has now started selling some of his own designed bags, accessories, shoes and a number of other things at olof1982.com and I have the fortune of owning his Urban Biker square which I am using here. I think it’s apt because it also shows Olof’s casual side - that’s not supposed to be him in the square but I thinkthat’s what happened and it’s exactly the kind of thing he would wear.
