Don’t take your style too seriously! Have fun, experiment and see what works.
As you get older, a great fit is paramount. It can really make or break your image. Make sure the shoulders on your jacket gently hug your own shoulders, creating a sharp, right angle to create a structured upper body (Which in turn flatters your waistline)
Also make sure your sleeve length is at the correct length. Your jacket sleeve should sit just at your wrist bone with your shirt sitting 1-2 cm below them.
Choose a jacket with a slightly longer length, it does wonders for your waistline, along with a few other tricks we implement into our clothing collections.
MAKE COLOUR YOUR FRIEND
Don’t be scared to use colour.
It can brighten and ignite your skin tone when you choose the right one for you!
Avoid dark greys and in particular; black which can make your skin look sallow. Opt for colours with warmth. Think petrol blue over dark navy or a sage green over a deep, dark green if you’re pale for example. If in doubt, use brighter or warmer colours near your face and darker below if you’re wanting to add some darker colours into the mix.
Not brave enough for a full palette of colour? Choose to accessorise.
MIX AND MATCH STYLES
Layer your clothes and don’t be afraid to put a stripe with a textured jacket or a tie that doesn’t match your pocket square. The less you’ve tried, the more it looks like you’ve made the effort. It’s a winner!
THE GREAT ACCESSORIES
If you don’t want to wear a bright jacket to show off your personality and want just a little pop of colour, then pocket squares and ties are a great solution and can add some flavour to any outfit. The joys of men’s clothing is that no one will ever notice if you’ve worn the same item a number of times if you simply change your shirt or a pocket square.
FOOTWEAR IS IMPORTANT!
Choose shoes and socks to complement your outfit. A poor pair of shoes can rapidly bring a great look down, as can a pair of non-matching socks. We like brogues, Chelsea boots and well, most smart and clean shoes go..
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Think less is more. If you’ve got great, key pieces in your wardrobe you’ll find them far more effective than buying loads of things you never wear or find it hard to think about piecing together
YOUR LIFE. YOUR STYLE
What amount of time to you spend wearing formal work attire vs a more casual look or is most of your time spent travelling? This will determine whether you need more sports jackets or suits.
INVEST IN TEXTURE
Similar to colour, rich textures can complement your skin and add an overall more luxurious feel to your outfit. Choose wool, knits and tweeds for casual and don’t be afraid to dabble in velvets and even corduroys. (Corduroys are more chic than ever!)
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL GREAT?
Wear what makes YOU feel good. Choose quality items that will last and really love the pieces you’re buying. We like to think of clothing as your own pieces of artwork. Special and unique.
