Business trip to Hamburg.

Yesterday, I had a nice client/agency meeting in Hamburg.

After a 3.5 hrs car ride, I arrived in one of Germany's most beautiful cities.

Here's my get-up:

Tweed jacket, a checked shirt, a cashmere blend sweater and a nice tie.

Herringbone flannel trousers. And a folded up sweater...

Brown Brogues.


Ship cranes and dry docks.

Große Elbstraße. Weather could've been better.

Lunch: Matie filet with green beans and fried potatoes.

Big boat right outside our conference room.

Saint Nicholas Presents and today's get-up.

As you might know, we Germans celebrate Nikolaus or Saint Nicholas Day on the 6th of December.

Many children (every age!) put a boot called Nikolaus-Stiefel (Nikolaus boot) outside the front door on the night of 5 December. 

St. Nicholas fills the boot with gifts and sweets overnight, and at the same time checks up on the children to see if they were good, polite and helpful the last year. If they were not, they will have a stick (Eine Rute) in their boots instead.

This Nikolaus, my Mum had a special present for me: A "Piccadilly Tea Time Hamper" from "The British Shop".

It contains
  • "Shortbread Fingers" and "Belgian Chocolate Chunk Biscuits" by Walkers/Scottland
  • "6 Tea Cakes" by Tunnock's
  • "Chocolate Mints Crisps" by Bendicks
  • "Twinings Tea Selection"
  • a small bottle (0,375 l) Amontillado-Sherry "Los Arcos" by Emilio Lustau
  • "After Dinner Mints" by Ross's of Edinburgh
  • "Toffees" by Walker's Nonsuch
  • 4 small jars of jam and Marmalade by Wilkin & Sons Ltd.

Here's today's get-up:

Herringbone Tweed Jacket, Tattersall shirt and merino sweater vest. This get-up begs for a tie!

Wheat-coloured corduroy trousers
