How was your weekend? I spent mine chilling out in Madrid with my family, and celebrating my father’s birthday, which was on Friday. We organized a dinner with all my uncles at La Parra, where we usually go when we have something to celebrate.
Previously I’ve shown you pictures of my father, and those who have seen him know that he is a man devoted to elegant menswear and always looks sharp and elegant. I often give him ties, shirts and other formal wear that I know he will love. Keen to get him something special, I listened to my cousin Julia, who recommended a shop to me that I didn’t know: Suitz. Peering in, I immediately fell in love. Everything in the shop had such an elegant and classic feel. After a long stay, I settled on a pair of suede shoes that my father really liked!
Suitz have some ideal gifts for the men in your life. There’s some great polo shirts and swimming trunks which make great prezzies too. I’ll let you in on a secret as well — soon they’ll have women’s stuff too…
For my visit to the shop I wore jeans from J.Crew, a Maison Scotch shirt from Cool the Sack, a Pochette (handkerchief) that a friend of mine gave me to put over my wrist, and my boots from Kiboots. I completed my outfit with a Prada handbag that I bought online and a shawl from Beck Sonder Gaard that I found at a Global Sevilla shop.
I hope you’ll like my new find.
