America’s Sweetheart, Tony Thaxton, has broken my brain by combining two of the best things ever… so seamlessly.
"They are the earliest painted portraits that have survived; they were painted whilst the Gospels of the New Testament were being written. Why then do they strike us today as being so immediate? Why does their individuality feel like our own? Why is their look more contemporary than any look to be found in the rest of the two millennia of traditional European art which followed them? The Fayum portraits touch us, as if they had been painted last month. Why? This is the riddle.”

One of the often overlooked but exceptionally easy to wear pieces in any man’s wardrobe is the cardigan sweater. When lightweight enough, it’s easy to wear layered under a jacket, but can also be implemented as a stand-alone item. Though a solid navy or gray is the classic option, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up with a unique pattern such as the cashmere one from Ballantyne pictured above. Manufactured entirely in Italy, it boasts a contrast placket with mother of pearl buttons, and we’ve paired it with a wool bow tie, check shirt, brown suede belt and burgundy brushed cotton chinos.
