Can you mix two different styles in one outfit? Yes, you can!
So, it’s one of those days you can’t really decide who you are, sartorially, what you want to express with your style, what need to cover with your outfit: are you a business go-getter, or a relaxed, bar-meetings man? Should your suit be a clear-lined, one color deal or a fun, patterned, two-color wonder? The answer lies in the collections of some of the best fashion brands out there. And, yes, it has double standards involved, yes, it shows off your dual nature, as a serious professional and a fun friend, creating an irresistible result. When the invitation says “The Clumsies” and your Diplomatico Exclusiva drink is served in a long, tiki ceramic mug, it’s time to have some fun with your combinations.
· Wear a plain, simple colored jacket and accessorize it with every serious detail you can find. A knitted tie is this season’s must and a silk pocket square will create the luxurious aura you desire.
· The simple, business upper half of your outfit will be instantly turned over once you stand up and the rest of your outfit is shown in plain sight. A fun pair of two toned, stripped trousers, a casual pair of suede derbies with funky colored laces, our “no socks” policy and you are ready for a great evening out and about town, right after a day filled with responsibilities.

THE BAR, THE CLUMSIES
With «perfect imperfection» as their motto, this gang of professionals started creating their dreamland in 2014. Since then, this all-day bar has turned into one of our favorite Athens hotspots. Our favorite is «The room», where private parties can be hosted and special cocktails can be prepared.
