Fresco and chinos. You just can’t go wrong like this.

As shown in the previous post, navy Fresco is a super-versatile thing. And I’ve been wearing the Fresco suits as separates a lot, sometimes with denim, sometimes with lightweight chinos like in the photos here.

Said chinos are made by Benevento from their lighter cotton. I’ve had two pairs of their 290g chino trousers, which are super nice, but don’t really work well in hot and humid weather. The 215g cotton, sourced from Brisbane Moss as well, has much more airy feel to it and is very comfortable (despite creasing noticeably easier, but that’s hardly unexpected). In this latest pair some extra room has been added to the hips and thighs, so they hang really well now. Skinny fit begone!

Another thing debuting on the blog is the cotton-linen shirt, another one with a pattern in my wardrobe. I just couldn’t stop myself from getting it, the Tessitura Monti fabric is great, the hidden button-down collar works here very nicely, and I love the details – the flat mother-of-pearl buttons, the French placket, the shape of the cuffs.
