A true gentleman knows he may be free from society's expectations - GUILD's proverb.
Anton Hmelnitski from the Khmelnytsky dynasty photographed on the old streets of Tallinn in our ash-beige woollen day suit.
Growing up on the streets of post-Soviet Tallinn, the cossack lad’s appearance gave the suit sort of a well-heeled gopnik look. Inked skin, relaxed spirit, burglar hat and the three striped slippers made us notice - only seeds were missing!
*семки, the sunflower seeds as the classic pastime of a gopnik slav
The three button suit jackets and wide pleated trousers are handcrafted in Tallinn of a pure new German wool.
