I recently visited Mykonos with Victoria and enjoyed a little sun, sand and sippable cocktail. Though it was crammed with cruise ship daytrippers, Mykonos town was a charming and perfectly located little place. One of the high points was watching the sun set from the terrace of a bar on Little Venice.

Not many of the bloggerati and the forumites take advantage of holiday locales so effectively; this is more akin to an editorial location shoot than simple "What I'm Wearing" photographs

Of course, it is that, also

What a great run of ensembles - cigars to both Victoria and you

B,

Thanks for the kudos - the camera and lens are also to credit for the quality of the photos.

Good day Winston!

Delighted to find this entry with such a refreshing collection of photographs. Compliments to the photographer and to yourself for impeccable sartorialism

If I may, I would like to know what sort of luggage you used to carry so many clothes with you.

Brilliant, very cool.... I am jealous of those combinations and outfits! I will be taking inspiration and when people tell me how great I look... I will take all the credit!

Thanks for the great ideas!

Hi Winston

I am greatly impressed by your outfits.

As I am heading to Helkidiki in Greece this July and wish to try something like this, I was wondering what kind of temperatures were you experiencing and whether or not you would risk such clothing in height-of-summer Greece?

Regards

Jonny

Alessandro,

A basic suitcase. Nothing particularly special. It's amazing how much you can squeeze into one!
I plan on purchasing an Alstermo Bruk soon, however.

Best regards,

W

Jay,

Thanks.

Best,

Jonny,

To be honest, it wasn't oppressively warm in Mykonos - about 29-32 C but with a breeze. At night it cooled significantly. All of my outfits were cotton or linen. I didn't feel too warm at all, even in the strong evening sun at Little Venice. In the height of summer? It might be very different. You might not want to wear a tie. However, it doesn't make you sweat if you sport a pocket square - flair can always be added.

@Jonathan, Just to let you know that this week in Athens we have 37 to predicted 40oC for all this week. Of course this is an exception, but generaly you should know that temp are high in Greece. You should though excpect, 4-5 degrees less in North Greece, were Halkidiki is located, and also some rain storms from time to time up there. So have a nice hollydays in Greece!

Thanks Winston, I think depending on the heat I shall save the second layers for the cooler evenings and the air conditioned bar of the hotel. I might sling a tie in my suitcase as a "just in case" item, though I shall definitely try different pocket squares to add some variation (we are there for two weeks and I own only own one suitable jacket).

I notice however that in none of the photographs are you sporting a Panama hat, what are you recommendations if any regarding them? Headgear of some kind will certainly be required for Helkidiki!

@AthensStyle- Thanks for the heads up and the good wishes! Presumably the temperature will rise even further by next month? What kind of heat can I expect in the evenings?

Regards

Jonny

Jonny,

"I notice however that in none of the photographs are you sporting a Panama hat"

The photograph of me in the stone doorway and the picture of me on the beach show me wearing a hat of that character.

If you want to buy a classic one you can to Bromleys;

They have the fold-away ones but I prefer the pre-set one.

Another option is Pakeman, Catto & Carter;

Apologies Winston, not sure how I missed that! Must have been concentrating on your other outfits. Links much appreciated, as is your time in answering my questions.

Regards

Jonny

I especially like the jacket in the last picture, among others.
