londondude 's Thoughts:

There is an English saying, that when it rains heavily, we say it “rained cats and dogs”.

I guess if you are reading this right now, there is a chance that you are scratching your head thinking “huh”? Well, maybe I would too if I was in your shoes. Perhaps even, one day it did literally rain cats and dogs. It has rained sardines and frogs in some countries. I guess we had to go one better and have pets flying from the sky!!

Ok, the weather today was atrocious! I went for lunch today at work, and against my better judgement, went outside to grab a subway. In the pouring rain. Well, I guess that makes me slightly mad, but if you saw the miserable offerings in the canteen, you too, would risk a soaking!!

Well, onto my outfit.

I didnt wear this today, as I hate getting one of my favourite jackets wet, but as I am going out for a sneaky pint at the local I decided to dress up a little bit

I choose my hat, which I got from Reiss, and my jacket from Sisley. I brought it in Rome, and I have loved it ever since!

Guys, I hope you like and please pass judgement!!

PS I have asked my girlfriend to appear in a post and she will!

Peace and Love

Rob, Ciao!

very trendy. if only more American guys dressed like this when it gets cold here! by the way, do you mean "english" saying as in it is originated from England? So that's where that phrase came from, and this whole time I thought it was American. ; P

Oh Rob, you are so charming! I love this look- and it appears to be all shades of brown. Is that the right assumption? Either way, I love it and may try to pawn off a version of this all-brown look, myself. I am sorry about your terrible weather and hope that your sneaky pint was delicious. Cannot wait to see the cameo from your girlfriend!
londondude
londondude on September 24
Thanks sooo much! It is shades of brown, dark chocalte coloured trousers and a slightly lighter shade jacket. Shoes, are in between! I am coaxing one chic appearance from my honey bumz as I type! : ))

Such an elegant timeless look. Love the double breastedness of the jacket and pairing it with that shirt is perfection. The hat just adds the icing on the cake!
londondude
londondude on September 23
Thanks very much! I truly appreciate such positive feedback, and its a joy to hear that you liked my jacket and hat! The shirt I was thinking a splash of white with a hint of blue in the check pattern would break down the chocolate tone somewhat.
