Milan, the city of style.

Milan city of style

Some cities are known for their monuments and museums, some for having wonderful food, and others for having beautiful people, Milan has everything, especially style!

It’s the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. The city proper has a population of about 1.3 million. Milan’s museums, theatres and landmarks include the Milan Cathedral, the fifth largest cathedral in the world, and Santa Maria delle Grazie, decorated with Leonardo da Vinci paintings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site attracting over 6 million annual visitors.

The city is also well known for several international events and fairs, such as Milan Fashion Week, capturing the attention of the entire world.

Style is part of the Milan character and it’s in every Milanese heart!

Kingsman, the movie.

Kingsman, The Secret Service is a spy action film directed by Matthew Vaughn and based on the comic book The Secret Service created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. The film’s cast includes Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Caine. The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. For us the highlight of this movie is its amazing wardrobe, developed by  MR PORTER  in concert with director Mr Matthew Vaughn, costume designer Ms Arianne Phillips and a dream team of British heritage brands.

How to organize your wardrobe

Walk-in-Closet-for-Men-

Cleaning out the wardrobe

To make the decision process easier you must remove from your wardrobe the garments that you will never use:

. Uncomfortable or damaged garments

.  Things you lost your interest in

.  Things that are not your size any more, or simply don’t fit well

.Things that haven’t been worn

.Things you don’t remember the last time you have wom

 Keep only the garments that you will definitely wear.

Organizing

.Organize your garments by categories before you hang or fold them

.Make sure you have quality hangers that don’t deform the clothes

.Sort the garments by color, creating color blocks  in your wardrobe

. Put all your hangers facing the same direction

. Fold your knitwear instead of hanging them

. Hang your ties instead of folding so that the fabric goes back to place after being used

. Keep your formal shoes separate from your casual shoes. Fill the shoes with paper so they keep their shape. In case you keep the boxes take pictures of the shoe and attach them to the visible part of the box

An organized wardrobe is the easiest way to make quick decisions on what to wear

If deciding on what to wear has become a problem, arrange your wardrobe by making assembles for every day of the week, hanging first the jacket (with the pocket square, in case you use one), then the shirt and tie, and finally the trousers.
