For this outfit of the day, I am wearing two exceptional items to be the focus of this outfit. A close encounter with Andrea Zori, an Italian brand. A perfect combination for warmer summer days or cooler evenings. Essential, timeless sneakers in black smooth leather and white rubber soles are the stylish pairs to wear either with skinny jeans or linen Bermuda shorts. I styled the Andrea Zori sneakers with tapered grey denim trousers and 100% linen long sleeves shirt from Xacus Shirts in pastel pistachio green colour.

Most of the time, I am working from bottom to top when I tried to decide on “What to wear today” decisions. First, the footwear then the rest.

“Footwear is an eloquent an indicator of taste, habit and character” ~ Andre Zori.

More about the brands:

Andrea Zori – Art craft: result of emotions, a lifestyle made of small daily satisfactions, creativity and imagination, using modern technologies but also respecting the ancient traditions. Origins go back to 1923 in Bassano del Grappa, when unique items refined in every detail, were manufactured in the basement of the family house. In 2000 the third generation, represented by Andrea Baggio, created the brand Andrea Zori. Based in Veneto in the north eastern side of Italy, the same area where the Brand Andrea Zori was born, Xacus Group guides the brand into the future.

Xacus Shirts – Xacus was founded in 1956 in San Vito di Leguzzano, on the outskirts of Vicenza. Alberto Xoccato, a talented and creative craftsman, entrusting the enterprise to the skilful hands of 10 experienced tailors in the region, Alberto set into motion a plan which allowed him to interpret the noble art of shirt-making.
