How to combine charcoal and tan. With a khaki transition.

We all know that you can't really wear charcoal and tan.

Well, you can, if you choose another colour as a transition.

In this case it's khaki.

Have a look:

Home office and business with one get-up.

I've spent the morning in my home office taking care of my daughter.

Now I'm back at my desk. Still wearing my comfy get-up.

But I don't care.

British get-up today. Sports. China Study.

I've started my day at 0515 hours for my morning exercise: 8 kilometers of running. I do this on Wednesdays and Fridays. And around 0900 hours on Saturdays or Sundays.

In the early morning, the world is still quiet, dark and peaceful. It's just me and my dog. And the creatures of the night, which live along the river Ruhr, our favorite running track.

Running really helps me to get in shape and to feel great.

Besides that, I've totally quit on meat and dairy, after reading the "China Study". 

But I don't live true vegan, as I still do eat honey and eggs (and sometimes fish), do wear leather shoes, belts and wool/cashmere clothes.

So if you care for clothes, you must care for your body as well!

Siegfried Farnon wannabe.

Do I look like Siegfried Farnon?

No, not at all. 
Maybe I'll travel to London this summer to buy a 3 piece Tweed suit at Cording's.

But still I won't look like him...

Donegal Tweed out of focus. Looks like a painting.

Look at my new Suitsupply belt!

Back in Düsseldorf. Wearing blue colours again and a great paper bank find!

I'm in steel blue, navy and some brown colours today.

You might know that I'm a big fan of the BBC series "All Creatures Big And Small".
And I try to watch one episode of my DVD box every night.

But I wanted to go deeper and maybe invest in the original stories by James Herriot, so I ended up checking Amazon and Ebay for offers.

So when I went to the paper bank yesterday, I noticed quite a lot of books right on top.

And three of them were the old German books of James Herriot, dated 1979.

How can anyone even think such books are rubbish?

Anyway, I'm pretty excited to read these old stories!
