The Rake’s online editor has a very stylish Instagram account, obviously

There’s a lot to admire and envy about Aleksandar Cvetkovic, my editor at The Rake online. He is literally in the thick of sartorial London culture. Between working at The Rake, and hobnobbing around with the likes of the fine people at Drakes, Edward Sexton, Gieves & Hawkes and many others, it’s enough to make me want to pack my bags and move across the pond tomorrow.

Here are a few things you can learn from Aleks, via his stylish Instagram account.

Rule No. 1:

When forest green doesn’t pan out as a “trend”, you look even cooler when you have a suit made in that color.

Rule No. 2:

The best way to dress down a double-breasted blazer is with a denim shirt.

Rule No. 3:

Keep stylish company.

Rule No. 4:

Tuck in a lightweight sweater to a pair of tailored cotton trousers for a sartorial springtime look.

Rule No. 5:

Redefine high/low with a denim pin collar shirt.

Rule No. 6:

A permanent wardrobe takes time to develop – don’t cut corners.

Rule No. 7:

Have a strong boot game.

Rule No. 8:

Nothing beats a blue suit. (Paired with a brown tie.)

Rule No. 9:

Stop and have a pint every once in a while.

Rule No. 10:

Always be on the lookout for amazing vintage pieces.

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,
