An old acquaintance and also the president of a big fashion group used to say that “it's not easy to be humble when you know that you are the best…”
Today he works in real estates. He is probably the best in that too, and if he were a bus driver or a computer sales man, he'd probably claim to be the best in that as well. In his mind he is most certain always the best…Well how about that!
It's not that easy to be the best, it takes time, practise, skills and dedication. Do you have what it takes? Sometimes you also need some help and connect with others that are also the best in their field to reach an even better level. Better than the best? Better than all the rest? Is that even possible?
Well maybe it is, take Slowear for example. Four brands that all are among the best in their product category gathered under one brandname. Incotex pants, Zanone knitwear, Glanshirt shirting and Montedoro jackets are the four collections that together represent the different variations of the Slowear style. Tailored or sportswear, extreme design or vintage inspired, no matter how you like to dress, you will always look both Smart AND Casual. Isn't that just the best!?
The best way of staying casual yet smart is to add a little contrast to your outfit, such as a pair of sneakers combined with your Incotex trouser and Zanone rollneck. The Farmers Market Pack from News Balance is a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the legendary Flimby New Balance factory in Cumbria. Waxed suede, plush nubuck, cotton canvas and woven tweed. Only the best fabrics made up in one shoe! Otherwise you can always go with any of the News Balance styles that are made in the USA, you know that big country south of Canada that just got Barack Obama re-elected as president. Isn't he just the best president!
Get down to the real Nitty Gritty of dressing smart and casual.

Boho stylish New York gentlemen and Italian candles…
The first time we lay our eyes on Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments we fell for the intelligent design that pervades pretty much through all pieces (and that's quite a few…) in the collection and they can also be mixed and matched together eminently. The potential numbers of unique looks seems endles
Learn from the past, think of the future
We like to tell stories, and listen to stories; we like to engage in small talks with our customers about their everyday life, about music and about style. We like to share our thoughts because we think that they can help people understand why we buy the brands we do and how we experience and interpret the style we convey at Nitty Gritty.

That Summer Feeling
“When the cool of the pond makes you drop down on it When the smell of the lawn makes you flop down on it When the teenage car gots the cop down on it The time is here for one more year And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you One day in your life….” We are about to hit that time in the calendar when you put your raw denims on hold and make some space on that most reachable shelf in your closet for Chinos and shorts. Tropical wool, linen blends, light twill and poplins are all classic favourites of the summer wardrobe, for grit girls as well as for guys.
Nitty Gritty by Oscar Jacobsson
There are people in the fashion industry claiming that there is no future for traditional formal menswear, we think that is a saying with modification. What we do know for sure is that the acceptance for dressing more casual, even in business areas that 10 years ago demanded a daily suit and tie, are higher today.
Bedwin & the Heartbreakers
At our weekly meeting the other day we had a discussion regarding this weeks Nitty News and the story about Japanese brand Bedwin & the Heartbreakers. A brand that all of us in the Nitty Gritty Crew really like and wear but in many different ways
