Poszetka.com selles beautiful and high-quality accessories. Their products are usually in limited supply, and are made in Poland by hand using mostly Italian and British fabrics. Their main products are ties and pocket squares, but in their shop other things are available as well: from bow ties and cufflinks to leather bags and hats.
This time what seems very interesting, are beautiful Macclesfield pocket squared made of delicate and almost transparent cotton-modal-cashmere mix. Fantastic colours and classic patterns will work great with spring outfits.
Another – and no less interesting – new thing is a preorder for linen popover shirts. This informal type of shirt bears some resemblance to polo shirt, but long sleeves with cuffs and shit collar make it work even with a jacket. Poszetka’s popover has some distinguishing features: linen from Cotonificio Albini, mother-of-pearl buttons and hand-set sleeves. If you preorder it, you can also choose from four types of collars.
Klasycznebuty.pl is perhaps the biggest Polish multibrand store with classic men’s footwear. A wide selection of models and brands in various prices should satisfy most enthusiasts of elegant shoes.
There’ll be some news products following month – the shipment has arrived and is waiting to be photographed. In the meantime, there are still some interesting models to choose from, for example Carlos Santos double monks. I have this model in this colour – Braga – and it looks better than on the photos, due to subtly patinated feel achieved by making the tips and the areas of the seems a little darker. There will soon be more colours to choose from. The shop also has a patina service – so you can enjoy a unique pair.
For a little more adventurous, there are leather trainers – also made of Braga-coloured leather, with a Bolognese construction – quite interesting for sport shoes, I think.
Benevento is a company making trousers. They have over 20 years of experience in this area, and they utilize it well: they make very good, both quality- and design-wise, product, mostly using British fabrics.
While ordering, you can ask for custom changes – both when it comes to measurements, and details. Side tabs, button fly, pleats. Two basic fit types (regular and slim), variety of sizes (both waist and inseam), and possibility of custom modifications makes it possible to get a very well-fitting pair of trousers for various body types.
If you’re looking for new trousers for spring, I can make some recommendations based on my own experience.
Linen trousers will be great, though informal, due to creasing and rough texture of the fabric. Incredibly comforatble during warmer days, though. If you need something more dressy, Super 120s Vitale Barberis Canonico wool should do. Lightweight and breathable, should keep you cool with no problems.
