After few days of non-stop rain in Paris, blue sky seems to show up again today so it’s time to take out a nice summer outfit and head for a terrace to bask in the sun. A Gitman blue Oxford paired with a Ralph Lauren shorts, a a.p.c. leather belt and a pair of Our Legacy Deck sneakers white canvas (the best sneakers of the season) will do just perfectly! I’ll let you know about the terrace on the next post…

VU, one of the best photography agency based in Paris, is releasing a very interesting third issue of their magazine, dedicated to cinema. I was caught by the “behind the scene” story by Gilles Favier on 90’s icon french movie La Haine as well as a nice portrait series from Cannes festival…

It’s not a secret for anyone, this summer is more than ever the boat shoe season. Nearly every brands have done their own version, more or less revisited, from apc to famous Band of Outsiders collab with Sperry. Nervertheless none of them in my opinion can match the original Docksides from Sebago. Simple yet perfect design, handcrafted, very comfortable and such a great look. This grey “waxy” version is just perfect.

I mentionned in my last post i was wearing jeans 90% of the time. Well, with is sun showing up and the air getting hot, it’s time to use the other 10%. No better way than my Engineered Garments shorts. Black chino canvas with military pockets. I bought this piece 3 summers ago at Odin in New York and it is really indestructible. Really nice top quality, “crafted in with pride New York” as the inside tag indicates. Now i need the same one in Khaki…

Acne Max Jeans

I might have a different shirt for each day of the week, but when it comes to bottom it’s an all different issue. Actually, i wear jeans about 90% of the time (OK, maybe 95) and nearly always the same style: the Max from Acne. I think it’s a big struggle to find the right cut and I must say the Max fits just perfectly, straight cut, just a little narrow. You can take it a size bigger than normal for a looser silhouette to wear with sneakers. It may not be a sharp and extra rigid “made in japan” denim (which I also enjoy wearing some time to time, especially the Nom de Guerre) but it’s very comfortable for an everyday use. My basic remains the raw one but i got myself a light blue for the summer which I’m getting a lot of wear these days. The Max is definitely a must.
