The Danielre Collection

If you’re a suit lover then you know it’s difficult to get affordably priced suits with the look and fit of something bespoke. I’ve got a couple of brands that I find fit me pretty well but now thanks to one of Instagram’s biggest menswear influencers there’s another. Daniele Zaccone, you might know him on Instagram as @Danielre released the Danielre Collection recently and it’s been on my radar ever since I first saw it. I can’t speak on behalf of the quality because I have yet to wear one of his suits but if it’s anything like his photos then it must be top notch. Have a look for yourself. 

Single Breasted 

A single breasted suit is the most versatile piece you'll have in your wardrobe. Danielre has many to choose from all with different details that make each suit unique and special. My personal favorite is the above middle Grey Glen-Check Suit. The great thing is you even have the option to add a vest and an extra pair of trousers to any order.

Double Breasted

His double breasted suits are designed just how I love my suits. Slim fit, unstructured and large lapels. Truly a thing of beauty. They all start at 500 euros which is a damn good price for something that looks so fine. Shop all the suits on danielrecollection.com and see any new releases on his instagram account @danielre

The Casual Cotton Suit

[Suit] Sisley [Shirt] Dsquared2 [Tie] Drakes

There’s not much to talk about here. This suit is for the brave and open minded. For the guy that’s already got his basics covered. It was made for the guy that’s not afraid of attention and has no problem with people staring. Over the last year my suit collection has grown quite a bit and I’ve added many statement pieces but I still always find myself gravitating towards my navy blazers. Summer is a great time to play around with pattern so I thought it was the perfect chance to wear this suit. It may be a bold print but I styled it just like I would any other piece. If the suit's printed I tend to go for a solid shirt and tie. I like to let one pattern grab all the attention rather than mixing in other patterns that can sometimes be too much on the eyes. Maybe this suit isn’t for you but it’s fun and I’m sure if you gave something like it a try you’d be feeling fresh all day.

Summer Basics [Jeans & Polo]

[Pants] The Kooples [Polo Shirt] H&M [Shoes] Zara [Hat] Failsworth 1903 [Sunglasses] Trussardi

A Polo is a summer essential. If you saw my post about wearing a polo shirt with a suit then you know it can be dressed up but today I’m going casual. Blue jeans and a polo are what most guys wear but I prefer white denim because it's a little more rare and nothing looks better during the summer than the color white. When it comes to a polo shirt I try to find something less sporty. Polo shirts were made for playing tennis in but there are many less casual options out there in quality fabrics that look better for everyday wear. I chose a solid blue because I think sticking to solid colors is fool proof and extremely versatile. A few key accessories are what help make the outfit pop. Of course these bright red loafers are what catch your eyes first but a good linen hat and a nice watch also help pull everything together. It’s been pretty hot the last few days so I’ve ditched my daily suit uniform and have been opting for less structured looks. Hope you enjoy.
