Poszetka.com – a brand that 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.
Humble beginnings, when the company sold just pocket squares and ties, are over though, and Poszetka is on its way to become a one-stop place for a stylish man to get his clothes. If you happen to be in Katowice in the next few days, you can get measured for an MTM jacket in their shop at 23 Morcinka street. You can choose from three colours of tweed (navy, gray and orange), as well as wool-silk-cashmere blend fabric.
Other than that, there’s a new handmade leather briefcase available. Interesting project with a lot of character.
Finally, it’s worth having a look at their outlet and see if there’s anything to your liking there.
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. Soon and online configuration form will make those custom orders even easier.
On the photos above you can see what some Benevento magic can make of this Super 120s checked wool fabric. And this kind of cut, with higher waist, pleats and side adjusters instead of belt loops is making a bit of a comeback. Not only is it aesthetically interesting – it’s super comfortable, I assure you.
And since there are still some warm days left this summer, you might want to have a look at other lightweight wools they offer.
Patine.pl is a seller of a Spanish footwear brand, Yanko. They feature elegant design, high quality leathers, beautiful lasts and touches like concealed channel of stitching or bevelled waist on the sole, found usually on high-class shoes.
If you want to start preparing for the winter (which, as we all know, is coming), it might not be a bad idea to have a look at Patine’s boot collection. Especially that some of the models there are sold for a reduced price.
On the photos above you can see some fantastic looking balmoral boots made of grain leather and suede. I just love the beautiful Testa de Moro leather, but the more subdued dark brown also looks very, very nice.
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.
And since we’re talking about shoes for colder weather, there’s this rubber-soled Carlos Santos split-toe derby. This type of shoe usually looks rather massive, but the shape of the last makes this shoe look really good. Also available in light brown pebble grain leather..
And if you prefer boots Berwick full brogue looks cool; informal, and will look fantastic with jeans or tweed. For those who are not that fond of brogueing, there’s this mode: brown pebble grain boots.
