Style: I don’t think you can give it a name; first it depends on my mood. Secondly it’s about comfort. It’s young, rebels and with a twist. And if I must give it a name; Young Classic…
Suits: Wear a suit; wear it with pride, a touch of arrogance, confident. The cut of my suits/jackets/shirts/trousers is “cut to the bone”, I love to feel the jacket, maybe a little bit as a second skin. Trousers a little bit to short à better to short than too long.

Your blog: I started the blog about a month ago, because I loved to photograph and want to share it; it’s a photoblog based on things I liked and see, cycling, menswear, design, city’s, details and other stuff. Future plans for the blog is to add some "guest photographers", shoot more and inspire more, so keep following..
