Lovely Asti stripe sports coat is suggested this time along with how and when to wear it – have a look!


Let the Sun Shine In

Singing a Georgie Fame cover hopeing to get some last summer rays before the Autumn


Claudio Suggests 27 August 2014

Lightweight silk, wool, mohair and linen combine the base for this summer casul look that works on textures, patterns, colours and weights. Loop collar shirt is worn outside the odd jacket as this style allows one to do so, and overall a good suggestion for looking cool on a warm summer evening or during a lovely day about town


Claudio Suggests 12 June 2014

Small gingham checks with large plaid checks solidly held together with solid blue. This suggestion is about starting simple and adding colours and patterns as you go along

Claudio Suggests March 2013

Grey and blue although usually can be quite bland here I try to add some suger and spice and think over all out come looks fine


Claudio Suggests 16 June 2012

Stripes, checks, paisleys; linen, wool, cashmere and silk. All in one outfit is a bit dareing butcan be done and here is how. Please note I suggest clothing which is currently for sale and so make due with what is available


Claudio Suggests 19 september 2011

Here I suggests a dark suit with white buttons, unsual choice of colour for buttons and here I will give some insight on how to land on your feet.



Claudio Suggests 19 april 2011

Lovely knitted top designed by author Paolo Hewitt matched with flannels and driving boots topped off with DNA harrington. Great mid season wear


Claudio Suggests 4 february 2011

Mix and matching checks is always a fave of mine so this is what I’ll be suggesting this time around. Lovely tan jacket with pink overlapping check matched with a gingham white and blue check shirt, wool tie, brown trousers and spectator shoes – very busy but over all tres dandy-cool as far as I’m concerned.


Claudio Suggests 2 January 2011

heavy wool trousers in a brown and white dogtooth pattern with orange overlap check are matched with flannel wool brown 3 roll 2 jacket. Some colouring to the accessories complement this first suggestion for the new year


Claudio Suggests 23 August 2010

Wool and silk blend pink, white and sky check jacket is used as a base for this suggestion. I have matched it with seersucker white and pale pink patterned Bruno trousers, white Taormina collared shirt, silk dark blue tie and burgundy loafers. A purple silk square is added to brung out the pink checks and add some extra flair. See you at the aperitivo!


Claudio Suggests 27 July 2010

Lightweight odd jacket, orange shirt, beige bernuda shorts and coloured suede driving shoes. Think the coloured shirt and shoes allows for a plain light coloured trousers rather than a more obvious choice of dark coloured trousers to contrast the light jacket.


Claudio Suggests 12 july 2010

An odd match including checks, stripes and colours. It can be done I’s tell ya!


Claudio Suggests 17 June 2010


Double breasted suits are usually used in a somber, ceremonial way, so this time I tried to be more daring with different colours & patterns.

This is the AMARONE styled-suit, bum freezer coat jacket, 3 roll 2 collar, high waisted STEFANO style trousers. MAtched with a purple and white striped Taormina shirt, blue silk tie and brogue shoes. Elegance with a hint of peacock – ness !


Claudio Suggests 17 december 2009

Ok – let see how this works out: I’ll put myself infront of the camera instead of hiding behind it. thought i’d try something different so bare with me. I hope I get better as we go along.


Claudio Suggests 25 october 2009

A beautiful light brown checked odd jacket this week will be matched with a heavy weight beige trousers and toffee coloured cord shoes, the brown and beige shading is contrasted by a burgundy merino wool knit top and cotton socks.

Claudio Suggests 27 May 2009

Finally getting back on track with this – sorry for the delays. Please take these light heartedly and as one can see these are done very lo -fi, with much improvisation. Just want to get some ideas and suggestions out to whomever may be interested. Hope I can get these on a weekly basis from now on.

Claudio suggests 27 11 2008
